Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream
January 4, 2016—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
A couple of years ago, we introduced a trio of hand creams whose value seemed to defy logic. Or at least the logic of the skin care industry. We found a great supplier, developed a very high quality product made with top-of-the-line ingredients, and found ourselves in a position to sell it for a wicked good price while still making a profit. This year, we embarked on a quest to develop a similarly high quality cream, with slightly different attributes, that we could sell in a single tube, every day. The result of that quest is Trader Joe's Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream, a three ounce tube that's big enough to last a while, yet small enough to keep in a purse, backpack, or glove compartment.
Like it's predecessors in the Trio, this Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream begins with 20% shea butter, an ultra-moisturizing compound made from the nuts of Karite nut trees grown in West and Central Africa. Shea butter is a magical ingredient, leaving your skin soft and never greasy. The Cream is enriched with hemp seed oil, a source of essential fatty acids, as well as skin-friendly antioxidant vitamins C and E, building blocks of collagen that can lend elasticity to your skin. We're able to offer Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream at a phenomenal price, defying skin-care industry logic once again. We're selling each three ounce tube for $4.99, every day.
