As a paediatric intensive care nurse, our co-founder, Antonia often came home with sore, cracked and bleeding hands from the constant hand washing needed to keep her young patients free from infection. In 2009 this became so bad that she was unable to work for several weeks.
Knowing that this problem affects nearly all nurses, Antonia and her husband Jonny started working on a hand cream formula. They wanted the product to be effective, natural and something nurses could use repeatedly throughout a busy shift. So for seven years they worked with a group of British nurses, laboratories and Newcastle Science City to create a range of therapeutic formulas.
