What's in the Bottle (& Why) | Hand & Body Lotion

Today I unveil the nourishing components of our luxurious Hand and Body Lotion formula - and why this multi-award winner is so great for your skin.

Every botanical ingredient has been thoughtfully selected to nurture not only your body but also your hands and nails - leaving you feeling and smelling sensational.

Deeply moisturising, skin softening and restoring, our luxurious Hand and Body Lotion is a decadent treat for your skin.

The origin of our plant-based ingredients is just as significant to us as their gentle and enriching properties for the skin. Every product is meticulously crafted in small batches, so that they arrive with you fresh and in prime condition.

Made with shea butter, marula seed oil & argan kernal oil - to deeply nourish and condition.

Suitable for all skin types, our luxe lotion ticks a lot of important boxes:

  • cruelty-free
  • paraben-free
  • vegan
  • gender inclusive
  • 100% recyclable packaging

Our Hand & Body collection is made with pure alcohol-free perfume oils, so you can enjoy the beautiful fragrance without compromising your skin.

I took great care to create a lotion that sinks in quickly, soothes and rejuvenates your skin - and leaves it glowing, with a beautiful lingering aroma. 


Shea Butter

Intensely moisturising shea butter provides deep hydration while helping alleviate dryness and maintain skin softness. A wealth of vitamins and fatty acids support your skin's elasticity and suppleness, helping promote a smoother appearance. Shea butter is also known for its anti-inflammatory effects and potential to assist in skin regeneration.

A trio of sweet almond, marula seed and argan kernal oils nourish your hands and nails to help combat dryness and peeling - for smoother, hydrated hands and cuticles all year round.

Sweet Almond Oil

Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and emollients, sweet almond oil deeply moisturises and nourishes, promoting a soft and supple complexion. Its gentle nature makes it suitable for all skin types, even sensitive or delicate skin, while its anti-inflammatory properties can soothe irritation. The oil's lightweight texture ensures quick absorption, leaving no greasy residue.

Marula Seed Oil

Packed with antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamins, marula seed oil deeply nourishes and revitalises your skin, leaving it soft and rejuvenated. A lightweight texture means it absorbs quickly, while antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties promote skin health. This wonder ingredient enhances hydration and supports a radiant complexion, and elevates your skincare routine.

And that's not all! Our Hand & Body Lotion is rich in Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Sweet Almond Oil , Cocoa Butter, Marula Seed Oil, Argan Kernel Oil, Glycerin, Moisturising Complex.

Sustainably Luxurious

Our Hand & Body packaging has had an upgrade to make it even more sustainable - and I'm sure you'll agree, more striking. Made from chic black recyclable aluminium, our deluxe 500 ml bottles launch imminently. You can now treat yourself to a chic travel size 60 ml tube, for smooth scented skin on-the-go.

Fragrance Layering

Our Hand & Body Lotion is delicately fragranced with each of our STORIES scents. Try applying the lotion to your skin before spritzing with Eau de Parfum to intensify your fragrance and prolong its lasting power.
