Secret Life Detox Therapy Hand Cream with Glove Effect

Secret Life Detox Therapy Hand Cream with Glove EffectThe skin of your hands needs nourishment and hydration all the year round because it is constantly exposed to various external factors, such as wind, frost, ultraviolet rays, hard or chlorinated water, etc. A good hand cream not only nourishes and moisturises the skin, it also protects the hands from the environment like a pair of gloves. That’s why Bio World claims that its protective hand cream has a “glove effect”.

When the skin of your hands doesn’t get enough nutrients and moisture, it becomes dry, flaky, and prone to redness, irritation, flaking, and even cracks. To prevent this, you need to follow several simple rules: always wear gloves when it’s cold outside; limit sun exposure; avoid liquid soap with SLS and hot air dryers; wipe your hands dry after washing them; consider buying a humidifier; and, of course, invest in a moisturising cream with additional protective properties.

But there are so many hand creams and lotions out there, how to choose the right one? It’s actually not so hard as you might think, you just need to pay attention to the ingredient list. All moisturisers contain two types of ingredients that help to keep the skin soft and hydrated: emollients and humectants.

Emollients act as lubricants and occlusive agents. They make the skin smooth and reduce flaking, as well as provide a protective layer that prevents moisture loss. It is emollients that make your hands feel a little slippery after you apply hand cream. Common emollients that can be found in hand creams include vegetable oils and butters (jojoba oil, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, etc.), lanolin, squalene, petrolatum derivatives (mineral oil, petroleum jelly), certain alcohols (cetearyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol), and silicones (cyclomethicone, dimethicone).

Humectants, in their turn, bond with water molecules in the environment, drawing moisture to the surface of your skin to increase the water content in the epidermis. Common humectants are glycerine, urea (carbamide), collagen, elastin, amino acids, proteins, and sugars.

A good hand cream contains both emollients and humectants, but not just any kind of emollients and humectants. Silicones, for example, provide only a temporary effect and sometimes give an unpleasant sticky or slippery sensation that won’t go away. Petrolatum derivatives aren’t considered particularly good for the skin either. So the best hand creams are based on natural ingredients, such as vegetable oils and butters, aloe leaf juice, urea, olive squalane, amino acids and proteins, etc.

Taking this into account, Belarusian brand Bio World has created a natural hand cream with glove effect for its Secret Life Detox Therapy collection. The product’s key active ingredients are coconut oil, soybean oil, glycerine, urea, shea butter, passion fruit extract, black cumin oil, vitamin E, aloe vera leaf extract, and sage extract.

Vegetable oils provide the skin with essential acids and other nutrients, making it soft, smooth and supple. In addition, they strengthen the nails, prevent flaking and chapping, and have a rejuvenating effect. Urea keeps the skin hydrated, vitamin E (tocopherol) slows down the ageing process due to its antioxidant properties, aloe extract moisturises and soothes the skin, sage extract produces an antiseptic effect and speeds up skin healing, and passion fruit exact is a great source of vitamins.

Since Bio World is an environmentally conscious manufacturer, its cream is cruelty-free and has recyclable packaging.
