Product Review: Crabtree and Evelyn Lavender Age Defying Hand Remedy
Posted Sep 07 2010 3:18pm
Hi again readers! I’m sorry that I haven’t written for over a month now. Events (some positive, some not-so-much) transpired in my personal and professional life that forced me to sit back and re-evaluate some of the priorities in my life. One of the clear decisions I reached was that I love to write and maintain this website. Even though it may be challenging at times with my medical/graduate school schedule, I plan to now start – and continue – updating on a more regular basis. Thank you for your patience with me during that time.
Shea butter. A classic emollient, shea butter has been long believed to have healing and soothing properties. A 2008 study in the British Journal of Dermatology confirmed this, revealing that shea butter was one of six lipid-based substances able to hydrate well enough to reduce sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)-induced irritation in the skin. (For the record, the only others that were able to soothe irritation of those tested were hydrocortisone, petrolatum, fish oil, borage oil, sunflower seed oil, canola oil, and fractions of unsaponifiable lipids from canola oil).
I. Love. It. New nighttime ritual, on my hands and feet, every night. Forever! (Or at least until Crabtree and Evelyn stops making it, which hopefully they won’t, not with positive reviews like this and sales like yours – hint hint!) =) And no, this wasn’t a pay-per-post; I just really love this cream, and I think that a lot of my readers will too.
