Love Necessaire’s other body care products? Then we’re sure you’re also going to love the Necessaire Hand Cream.

This is a fast-absorbing treatment hand cream. It’s rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidant vitamins and an advanced anti-ageing peptide.

This hand cream will provide your hands with all the goodness they need to look and feel their best.

It has a luscious texture that melts into the skin and leaves no greasy residue so that your pretty paws can get on with all their everyday tasks.

Why Necessaire Hand Cream?

Necessaire Hand Cream has been perfectly formulated to care for and treat your hands. It moisturises, nourishes and protects.

The cream penetrates quickly and leaves hands feeling soft and smooth, and not at all greasy. It’s like an invisible glove for the hands — it replenishes what your skin loses after washing, protects against environmental aggressors and helps minimise the signs of ageing.

The hand cream contains omegas 3, 6 and 9,  Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Vitamin E, Squalane, Shea Butter and Glycerin. These ingredients nourish the skin and restore the skin barrier. In addition, it contains a peptide to keep the skin on your hands looking younger longer.

It has a pH of 5.5-6.5.

Key ingredients

Acetyl Heptapeptide-4 is a peptide comprising Alanine, Arginine, Glutamic Acid, Glutamine and Methionine. It conditions and hydrates the skin. And, according to the manufacturer, it has wrinkle-smoothing effects.

Squalane, which is similar to the skin’s own oil, adds moisture and restores suppleness. But it also does much more. Squalane helps neutralise damage caused by UV and protect against lipid peroxidation, which can lead to damage to skin cells and pores.

Shea Butter is a lovely moisturising and softening ingredient. It also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties, which makes it an ideal ingredient for hand creams.

Niacinamide does a lot of the heavy lifting in skin care products. This remarkable ingredient is actually Vitamin B3 and there’s little it can’t do. Niacinamide keeps the skin barrier healthy, reduces redness, regulates oil production, protects against sun damage, fades the look of sun spots, improves uneven tone, and minimises fine lines.

Marula Oil is naturally rich in antioxidants (Vitamin C, Vitamin E and polyphenols), amino acids and fatty acids. These help protect and restore. Marula Oil nourishes the skin, improves its resistance, calms irritation, reduces uneven tone, supports healing and may help protect collagen and elastin.


  • Hands are soothed and nourished.

Necessaire Hand Cream Review

I never experienced dry hands until the pandemic – cold winter weather, hand sanitizer  and increased hand washing led to painfully dry and itchy hands for months on end. After only a few days of using this cream morning and night, my hands have gotten a million times better! I use a pea size amount twice a day. I love how thick this cream is, but also how quickly it absorbs — no greasiness left behind! The amount of product you get is definitely worth the price!


How to use

Apply all over hands frequently throughout the day, particularly after washing your hands. Massage until absorbed.
