My ten year old daughter recently started climbing/bouldering as an activity and her hands have really suffered. Her knuckles were dry and cracked and her palms were sore and blistered. We tried a variety of nourishing/repair creams and, although some gave short term relief, the condition of her hands didn't improve. Now we have started using Shea alchemy climbers' cream we have seen a real difference. The fine texture of her skin has returned and the hard blisters are just a faded pattern. Her hands are no longer sore. Amazingly, the pot of cream is still full. A little really does go a long way!
“This really works! I was sceptical before I used it as my hands were pretty wrecked but I put it on in the evening and in the morning there was a massive difference - the cracks were almost healed and felt much better”

“I am just back from a month-long mountaineering trip to Kyrgyzstan. I took, a tin of climber's hand cream - to use on my feet as well as my hands. I have problems with the ends of my fingers splitting on these trips and also, spending hours on your feet, carrying big loads, etc, my feet get very dry and cracked and painful. It's actually quite a luxury to put the cream on your feet at night, massaging and nourishing them: I had not a single problem with my feet the whole trip and, again, had more than enough for the whole month. Hands take a battering and it was good to be able to put cream on them, sometimes several times a day. These creams work in challenging environments, do what they're supposed to do and bring a touch of luxury to the hardest of trips.”
