I was recently sent a tube of Pure Body Organics Hydrating Hand Creme in Pink Grapefruit from a new-to-me company, SJ Creations. This product is from their Pure Organics line and they also have two additional product lines, SJ Everyday Bath & Body, and Fancy Nancy. They have an extensive product selection on their web site that includes facial skin care, bath and body products, gift sets, hand soaps, and fragrances, among other things. One thing I always look at in a company is their charitable side, and SJ Creations definitely has one. They are currently working with 6 charitable organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Serving Hands International, Heart for Africa, Breast Cancer Awareness, International Relief Teams, and the University of San Diego scholarship programs.
Check out their web site to see all of the products they offer! They have a very helpful feature that is an encyclopedia of product ingredients and their full descriptions, which you can find here. They also have a sale page with some super cute items and super low prices--right now it's featuring Halloween items including hand washes with very festive packaging and enticing scents (Pumpkin Spice Harvest and Wicked Candy Apple, for example) for just $3.50. You can purchase their products on line or at a number of retail stores including Bed Bath & Beyond, Ulta, and Trader Joe's. Click here for a full list of locations.
Now for my thoughts and some additional information on the Pure Body Organics Pink Grapefruit Hydrating Hand Creme. This product comes in a 4 oz. tube and is on sale right now for $4.50, which is half off. The formula is fairly thick and it smells just like a slightly sweet pink grapefruit. It absorbs quickly and leaves a light fragrance. It's available in 2 other scents, Lavender and Organic Green Tea & Ginger. It's also available in a fragrance-free version. I find this creme to be very moisturizing and long-lasting, and it leaves absolutely no greasy residue. These cremes are filled with hydrating essential oils and you can view the full ingredient list here. Some more useful information:
~100% paraben free with no sodium lauryl sulfates, this hand crème is also silicon and petroleum free.
~Made with Eco-Cert certified ingredients, there are no artificial colors and no synthetic fragrances.
~100% biodegradable and has never been tested on animals.
~Made in USA
I'm very pleased with this product and SJ Creations in general--from their pricing, to their philosophy, to their product ingredients. What I like the most about the Hydrating Hand Creme is the scent and how quickly it absorbs, leaving my hands feeling much more moisturized than many other products. If you're looking for an effective and reasonably priced hand creme, I highly recommend this one.
