Germ Fighter Protective Vegan Hand Butter - Limited Edition
I first made this limited edition Vegan hand butter for my Aunt who works in the health sector. Thanks to Covid19 she has to wear full head to toe gear while treating patients. Weeks of this lead to her hands becoming cracked and painful thanks to having to constantly wash her hands in between glove changes. She told me she couldn't find a lotion that worked and that her hands were really bothering her. I told her I'd make her a super concentrated hand treatment to help counteract the effects of all that hand washing. I also decided to add well known germ fighting organic essential oils to help not only protect her damaged hands from germs, but to also help fight germs that she may encounter.
After creating this for her, I decided to create a Limited Edition Vegan hand butter - the original butter I made for my Aunt contains beeswax. One of the nice things about this protective salve is the smell. It has a wonderful scent reminiscent of Christmas thanks to the addition of cinnamon and clove EO's.

I am always looking for realistic ways to reduce waste. This zero waste goal is part of what made me come up with this idea for a limited edition hand treatment. The jars are what I believe to be vintage spice jars. When you finish the product inside, use pure soap (no water) to get them as clean as possible. Then rinse. Follow up with a regular soap and water wash until clean. Be sure to pop off the little plastic seals so water doesn't get trapped inside. Dry thoroughly and they are ready to reuse. The string used to attach the cute leaf charm is from upcycled cotton string. The silver leaf charm is from salvaged jewelry. Thanks to the fragile nature of glass, these pretty jars are typically shipped in recycled kraft bubble mailers, some may ship in recycled cardboard boxes, while others will require priority bubble mailers. Packaging depending on what the total order contains.
Do you know where your lotions come from? When you buy from Running Bug Farm you do! I only source organic ingredients that I feel comfortable using for myself and my family. You will never find toxic fragrance oils or other synthetic ingredients in any of my products.
