Potato chips, Post It Notes and Play Doh all share something in common with the ‘Pep Me Up’ Hand and Foot cream.
They were all an accident.
The Accidental Hero – ‘Pep Me Up’ Hand and Foot Cream
What we were originally trying to create was a product to assist athletes in preventing chafe. Instead we developed an amazing treatment that moisturises and protects your hands feet. Crazy but true.
The intense moisturising, soothing and conditioning of shea butter, macadamia oil, and extra virgin olive oil will help transform tired, dry and cracked hands and feet. Bet you never thought you’d be able to describe your hands and feet as fresh, soft and beautiful, 'Pep Me Up' does the job with aplomb.
Candelilla wax and our secret ingredient - a plant based alternative to mineral oil - lock in moisture like an invisible sock which protects your hands and feet from drying out.
You may be forgiven thinking that pineapple is only great in a cocktail. It’s also amazing for your skin with its high levels of B vitamins and the enzyme bromelain which keep skin cells turning over. Pineapple also has anti-inflammatory, moisturising and skin firming qualities.
Pineapple’s partner in nourishment is witch hazel. Not all witch hazel is created equal. Many witch hazels are alcohol based which is why is has a drying reputation. Drying is not a good recipe for hands and feet so we found a witch hazel that is glycerine based. It is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and moisturising.
To make the ‘Pep Me Up’ the complete hand and foot pamper package, peppermint and sweet orange were added to make it smell absolutely delicious. The aroma combo will keep your hands and feet fresh and revitalised after a long day at work.
Here’s what some of Pep Me Up’s raving fans have had to say…
You didn’t think we’d expect you to take our word for how awesome our hand and foot cream is, did you? Of course not ;)
“The hard skin on my feet is softer and more moisturised and when my hands were especially dry it was very hydrating.”
“Beautifully soft elbows, hands, arms and of course my feet they just soaked up the ’Pep me up’ - it made them feel like dancing!!”
“I really, really like the fragrance and that it lasts a while and that it penetrated quickly into my skin.”
“I am an avid gardener so live in gumboots most days. A big improvement in the softness of my feet and helped immensely with dry areas around heels and toes. Also suffer from arthritic bunions which appear to be less painful. Very impressed.”
“My house-painting husband who was starting to develop cracks in his fingers through the various solvents etc that he uses, then asked if he could try it. He loves it and wants to buy a 500g tub as soon as it's on the market.”
“You're on a winner! I'm a massage therapist and have only used natural creams, essential oils on my face and body for over 30 years so I'm a bit of a snob or should I say connoisseur when it comes to creams and oils. This is fabulous.”
“It's made a big difference to my feet in a short period of time”
