Our hands are highly susceptible to sun damage and ageing in general, thanks to regular washing (i.e stripping them of moisture) and frequent UV exposure, they are often the first place to show signs of ageing.
So when I came across The Chemistry Brand’s Hand Chemistry a few years ago, I gave it to my 60+ mum to try (not expecting to see noticeable results). Her hands were mildly sun damaged, the skin was rather crepey and they felt a little dry - but these quickly became concerns of the past.
This is the point where I'd usually show you a miraculous before and after, but sadly an iPhone mishap caused that content to be lost forever #RIP. Instead, I'll tell you everything you need to know about this hand cream.
What's So Good About This Hand Cream?
The Chemistry Brand has identified eight signs of hand ageing: brightness, elasticity, firmness, smoothness, density, evenness, hydration and texture. And because this brand sits under the umbrella of innovative skincare brand, Deciem (as does The Ordinary and NIOD), this hand cream has *obviously* been designed to target all of those things.
This hand cream features a very highly active complex to deliver fast anti-ageing results
It contains a derivative of mushroom shown to be 400 x more moisturising than Hyaluronic Acid
Algae ferment can increase skin moisture content by 11% in just 12 hours
The formula helps to form a protective barrier to reduce moisture loss
A unique patented complex also targets firmness, elasticity and smoothness
Antioxidant-rich plantago lanceolata also improves unevenness and brightness
It comes in three sizes (including a big pump bottle) so you can always have a tube in reach
