Ameliorate’s Intensive Hand Therapy Cream for rough, very dry, chapped hands and hard cuticles, will leave your skin feeling softer, smoother, renewed and more youthful.
Formerly known as Intensive Hand Treatment, Ameliorate's hand therapy cream is an all-in-one day and overnight hand cream to exfoliate, renew, soften, moisturise and protect the delicate skin on your hands. Formulated for both the palms and backs of your hands, it harnesses the same powerful Alpha Hydroxy Therapy and LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex as Ameliorate’s iconic Transforming Body Lotion, which is proven to last for up to 12 hours.
Lactic Acid delivers effective exfoliation and replenishing moisture for rough, dry hands; Barley extract has unique skin soothing and softening qualities. This potent hand cream draws inspiration from the brewers who emerged elbow deep in Barley mash, only to discover they had very soft skin.

Are Ameliorate products tested on animals?
No. Animal testing of cosmetics is now illegal in Europe and has been for some time. Ingredients designed for cosmetics also come under this ban so thankfully this horrible practice is becoming a thing of the past. All the testing performed on AMELIORATE products were performed on people both for safety and efficacy
Are Ameliorate products organic, suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
All of the Ameliorate products are suitable for vegetarians but not vegan, as the products contain milk protein. Ameliorate products are not organic.
Can children use Ameliorate?
All Ameliorate Skincare products have undergone full, independent safety assessments and are considered safe to use on children 3 years and above.
I am lactose intolerant, can I use Ameliorate?
People who are lactose intolerant will not have any ill effects from using Ameliorate products. Lactose is a large sugar molecule that normally breaks down during digestion to smaller, digestible sugars, Glucose and Galactone. Although chemically related, Lactic Acid and Lactates as used in Ameliorate are not sugars and do not perform similar functions in the body so topical application will definitely be no problem for lactose intolerant individuals.
I have a nut allergy, can I use Ameliorate products?
Some of the Ameliorate products contain Sweet Almond Oil. Almond Oil does not contain the proteins that cause concern for allergy sufferers. However, if you have a severe nut allergy we advise you take medical advice before using any product that contains a nut-derived ingredient.
What is the shelf life of Ameliorate products?
By law, cosmetic products must be fit for a minimum of three years from manufacture unless otherwise stated. Ameliorate products have been fully tested to comply with this regulation. We have suggested the product be used within 12 months of opening and this is indicated in the 'open jar' symbol.
Do Ameliorate use parabens?
No. Ameliorate products are not preserved with parabens. Despite some negative press about paraben based preservatives no studies have yet been performed that show parabens to be unsafe. In fact parabens are increasingly being recognised by experts as the safest and most effective cosmetic preservatives available but we do understand that some people still have concerns so we have used alternative preservatives.
I have psoriasis, can I use Ameliorate products?
Psoriasis is a medical condition and should be treated as advised by your medical professional. We would advise seeking medical advice before using Ameliorate products.
What is LaH6?
LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex is a 2-in-1 ground-breaking formula that includes 6 active ingredients to gently exfoliate and deeply hydrate the skin, while always respecting and repairing the skin barrier. While many of us think that exfoliation and hydration are two different activities or require two different products, we’ve combined this into one, to keep your skincare routine simple and effective.
