Top Seven Active Ingredients for Hand Skincare

Work of any kind is no excuse for rough and chapped hands with unkempt nails

A little good will and a few minutes of everyday care will in time make even the roughest hands soft and smooth again. Generally, the following basic rule applies: the more you use your hands, the more care they need. Work is no excuse for rough and chapped hands with unkempt nails.

NiKEL recommends using seven active ingredients that guarantee success:


Almond oil makes hands soft and nourishes the skin.

Olive oil is an exceptionally beneficial ingredient and is commonly used in hand creams. In ancient times, the olive tree, which can live for more than 1500 years, was a symbol of longevity, immortality and fertility. Olives consist of around 22% oil. Olive oil is rich in vitamins A and E. It also replenishes and retains moisture, soothes and provides sun protection, reflecting around 25% of sun rays.

Cocoa butter (or shea butter) protects the skin from UV radiation. It nourishes the skin on the hands, and makes cuticles soft and supple.

Lemon essential oil has an antibacterial effect.

Calendula oil nourishes, while water particles moisturise the skin.

Daisy flower extract prevents the appearance of dark spots and can be effective against other signs of aging.

Panthenol moisturises and regenerates the skin, helps heal cracks and sores, lightens brown hyperpigmentation spots and prevents them from appearing, and strengthens nails.
