the chemistry brand hand cream

Hand creams in Singapore are basically the equivalent of fruitcakes at Christmas. You buy them for someone you’re not really sure about and you don’t really care if it gets regifted (and it probably will). Some of us who work all the time in subzero office temperatures slather ‘em on all the time, and the rest of us don’t really look for a specific hand cream. 

Let’s face it — everybody claims to be super into skincare but for a body part that does a lot more than our faces do, hands get a lot of neglect. Enter The Chemistry Brand Intense Youth Complex Hand Cream, a game changer that will have you throw out all the other greasy hand creams that has made your handshakes felt like handling a slimy Red Snapper at the wet market. 

At pH 5.5-6.5, The Chemistry Brand claims that this tube of goodness “targets 8 signs of hand aging simultaneously”. While the skin on our hands weren’t close to being in crocodile territory, it definitely delivered. Your skin drinks up a dollop of the product as you rub it in gently and you’ll be left with soft, supply skin all day. Talk about the easiest hand job.

With 19.5% active complex concentration, it’s no surprise that the Intense Youth Complex Hand Cream actually delivers more than just temporary moisturising. If you’re interested in the science, the product actually contains a biotechnological derivative of the mushroom, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp, that shown to be 400x more moisturising than Hyaluronic Acid. Plus, your skin moisture content can be increased by 11% in just 12 hours thanks to the inclusion of an algae ferment. This increase equates to 21% in 24 hours and 32% in 30 days. To top it all off, Sacha Inchi oil and Maize Propanediol work together to form a protective moisture barrier, ensuring that the skin is able to hold on to this new-found moisture.

The best part is, like all skincare, the skin on your hands only improve with consistent use. The skin on the backs of our hands are softer, brighter and plumped up. And if you’re one who meets clients often, you’ll be pleased to know that this cream cosies up nicely in the not-a-trace-of-grease department.
