- Cool down skin during hormonal hot flushes

- Soothe prickly heat rash
- As an aftershave lotion
- As a light and refreshing hand or face cream
- As a moisturising scalp cream for shaved heads

Directions for use
Our Cooling Cream is suitable for vegans, all skin types and all ages from six weeks, and can be applied anywhere on the body, hands and face. Perfect for hot, flushed, skin that needs cooling down, or simply as a luxurious all-purpose moisturiser. For best results and an extra refreshing boost, keep cream in the fridge.
When applying emollients, it’s important to try not to rub your skin to avoid further irritation - instead, gently apply in the same direction of your hair follicles. On first use, the product will require several pumps to release the air before the cream begins to dispense. Discard the small amount that collects in the nozzle in between applications.
“I’ve been using this cream throughout my radiotherapy treatment for breast cancer and it really has minimised the effects of the radiation. Even the radiographers have commented on how well my skin looks.”
Patch test first
As with any new skincare product, we always advise you patch test a tiny amount of the oil behind the ear or in the crook of your elbow for at least 24 hours before widespread use. Visit our Patch Test page for a detailed guide.

For a more intensive emollient, especially if skin is broken or scratched raw from itching, we’d suggest you use our beeswax-based Skin Salvation after our Cooling Cream.
