uka’s organic hand creams are based on the same aroma concept of the iconic Nail Oils. They sublimate the skin and uplift the mind in a simple gesture. Their perfect texture results from the blend of innovative ingredients and embracing aromas, a beautiful union between French and Japanese skills.
The base lavender notes of 24:45 hand cream are combined with orange and the sweet scent of vanilla to create a luxurious aroma. The sweet and delicate fragrance of this hand cream evokes a pleasant and calm ambience and is recommended for users who would like to enjoy a relaxing moment. Texture: Rich and highly moisturizing.
Neroli: neroli floral water (moisturizer) is extracted from the flowers of bitter orange, and it can give firmer skin. Using Neroli floral water instead of regular water as the medium of the hand cream amplifies its moisturizing benefits and gives rise to a richer texture.
Artichaut: French artichoke oil (moisturizer) is a sustainable oil extracted from the seeds of artichoke plants that are cultivated and cold-pressed in house. This oil contains twice as much linoleic acid as argan oil, which is well-known for its beauty benefits.
Inca Inchi Oil (moisturizer): Inca Inchi Oil is an oil produced in the Amazon with a high Vitamin E content, and is highly effective for improving skin texture, maintaining hydratation, and giving you firmer skin.

How to use :
Dispense 2-3 cm of hand cream onto the back of one hand and rub it with the back of the other hand to spread the product across them evenly and avoid a sticky texture.
Rub the remaining hand cream between the back of your hand and the palm of your other hand to spread it evenly. Work the product along each finger and carefully rub the hand cream into the creases around your nail area and finger joints. Re-apply as necessary when your hands feel dry.
