Karite Creme Mains Nourishing Hand Cream

Crème Mains is a nourishing, lightweight hand cream that helps restore moisture and repair the skin’s barrier without any harsh chemicals. The high concentration of raw, unrefined shea butter protects skin against the elements, frequent hand-washing and household cleaners.


  • Raw, unrefined shea butter: Sustainably sourced from women-run farming co-ops in Ghana. Naturally high concentration of essential fatty acids and vitamins A and E.
  • Organic, unrefined coconut oil: Minimal processing preserves the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties that increase moisture levels and repair the skin’s barrier.
  • Palm oil: Sustainably sourced from their family’s palm oil factory in Ghana. Softens skin while maintaining its elasticity.
  • Other botanicals: Olive oil, sunflower seed oil, rooibos leaf extract and rosemary leaf extract


  • It’s full of antioxidants thanks to the tocopherol and catechins.
  • It prevents signs of aging. Shea butter also contains lupeol, which inhibits the enzymes that degrade the skin's supportive proteins.
  • It reduces inflammation. The triterpene alcohols found in shea butter have anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter has been shown to help with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, as well as arthritis.
  • It has antimicrobial properties. People in West Africa have used shea butter as a natural remedy to treat wounds and other ailments for centuries.
  • It has UV protection. Seriously! The cinnamic acid esters in shea butter have been shown to absorb a limited amount of UV rays. Unrefined shea butter has the equivalent of an SPF between 3 or 4.
  • It's incredibly hydrating and moisturizing without the greasiness that comes from other moisturizing ingredients.


1. Apply a pea-sized amount to the back of your hand.
2. Gently rub hands together being sure to spread the cream around to the palms and in between fingers.
3. Use multiple times a day, especially after hand-washing and using hand sanitizer.
