Farmer’s Friend Organic Hand Balm was originally created for Jason, a local strawberry farmer. His hands were painful, dry and cracked, and he desperately needed help.  It took months of research and collaboration before we finally got it right, and finally, Jason no longer had sore hands. Not long after, Farmer’s Friend Organic Hand Balm was helping other people who use and abuse their hands. Mechanics, chefs, concretors, carpenters, nurses, artists, surfboard shapers, cleaners, dental technicians, tree loppers – the list keeps growing!

We recommend rubbing this creamy bar between clean hands (like you would do with soap) for instant relief and lasting protection. Many of our happy customers like to scratch a little bit off and rub that between their fingers first – the warmth of your hands spreads the love around. Whatever way you do it, just get it on you!  Farmer’s Friend Hand Balm is also great for elbows, knees, splits on soles of feet and other craggy spots. It works wonders on cuticles, calms any raw skin, and helps relieve itchy skin.

Farmer’s Friend Hand Balm is natural skincare at its simplest and purest form. It contains only natural ingredients, organically certified wherever possible, with no nasty chemicals. As with all Feisty Ferdy products it is nut-free and gluten-free.

So what’s in it?

Essential Oils

Our special formula of Frankincense, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Atlas Cedarwood and Lemon give Farmer’s Friend its wonderful fragrance. These oils soothe anxiety, stress and depression, and calm the mind. The oils are antibacterial and antiseptic. They encourage wound healing, stimulate blood supply and promote cellular regeneration in your skin.

Coconut Oil

Packed full of 6 essential fatty acids, this oil is anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Coconut oil is light, gentle and soothing to sensitive or damaged skin. It’s also deeply nourishing due to its  high saturated fat content.

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa Butter is highly anti-oxidant and ultra-hydrating. It consists mostly of saturated fat and encourages the healing of dry, cracked, sensitive skin. With loads of essential fatty acids, it is absorbed easily and protects the skin for hours. Cocoa butter adds a protective, moisturising layer to your skin, which blocks the effects of cold temperatures and sun damage.

Raw Beeswax

Beeswax is anti-bacterial and water resistant. It protects your hands from frequent washing and promotes skin healing  due to its high Vitamin A content.

Jojoba Oil

The combination of fatty acids in jojoba oil closely mimics our own skin’s natural sebum. As a result, this ultra-nourishing oil is absorbed effortlessly.

Non-nano Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is a naturally occurring mineral. It protects the skin from sun damage and it soothes irritated, itchy skin. It is not absorbed into the body.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant and works to block free-radicals, which play a large part in cell death.
