Shea butter is a fat extracted from the nuts of the shea tree, native to West Africa. Shea butter has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for centuries. Its high concentration of vitamins and fatty acids make it an excellent product for smoothing, soothing and conditioning your skin.
Shea butter is highly moisturising due to its fatty acid content, including linoleic, oleic, stearic, and palmitic acids. It is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant and helps boost collagen production and cell regeneration, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and scarring.

Aloe vera is a cactus-like plant with leaves that produce a gel rich in vitamins A, C, E, and B12. There are records of it being used as a therapeutic ingredient since 1750 BC.
Aloe vera is easily absorbed into the skin and helps to moisturise, soothe, and hydrate the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties and supports the production of collagen. It also contains antioxidant properties, which can repair sun damage and slows down the skins ageing process.
In addition, there is research to show that aloe vera can increase flexibility and reduce the fragility of the skin.
Gently massage the Kew Gardens Iris Hand Cream into the skin until the cream has been fully absorbed.
Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use on irritated or broken skin. For external use only.
