This mineral-enriched cream has been specially formulated to protect hands and safeguard them from climatic hazards and household damage, instantly smoothing chapped, dry skin and restoring suppleness.

The cream elevates skin’s moisture level through Osmoter, a unique, concentrated extract of mineral-rich Dead Sea water, created by Ahava using a natural evaporation process. It contains scientifically balanced levels of Dead Sea minerals to enable the skin to optimise its cell functions. Leveraging the principles of the natural water-sharing process that takes place between skin cells, the clinically-proven formula draws moisture and nutrients from the depths of the skin up to the outer layers of the epidermis.
