I wash my hands often and my hands are always brutally dry, cracked, and red. It was important to me to have a hand cream that I could use regularly and feel good about soaking in my body. This hand cream rates a 1 for toxicity with the EWG. It's one of the best rated hand creams here on iherb. Most hand creams sting my sensitive hands but this one was very soothing and created no redness. It's thick, penetrates quickly and leaves hands tacky instead of greasy. I also love Badger Balm for Hardworking hands and Burt's Bees Hand Salve which also rate very well for toxicity. These are effective but greasy, so I use them when I'm sitting around watching tv or at bedtime and use the Andalou at work, during computer use, and when I'm out and about and need dry hands. My only complaint would be that Andalou's lavender scent is a bit strong but the intensity wears off pretty quick. This could be a problem around scent sensitive people. I love that I can reapply these hand creams often without worrying about toxic ingredients. I purchased my first tube of Andalou and tin of Burt's salve at a health food store and was so happy to see I could save a few dollars by buying it here on iherb. I live in Canada and have received all of my iherb orders within 2 weeks.

I like this hand cream, the lavender smell is pleasant and not overwhelming, and the cream gets absorbed easily.

I´m not a lavender person, but the smell has won me over! Leaves very soft and hydrated hands, it is not oily ("dries" fast). Love it! Will repurchase it again, definitely!

I ordered it carefully, as over the years couldn't find hand cream that works.

The scent of lavender is soothing and like real lavender. Nice texture, absorb fast into skin without leaving any residue. Great product by Andalou Naturals and great price by iHerbs. Will repurchase.

A very thick & rich texture, but absorbed easily. Fabulous to treat winter dryness. The scent is very strong though. I might try another scent next time I order it.

Love this lotion, the lavender is a bit strong but clean not cloying.
