We have created a limited edition Hero product to celebrate the Heroes of the past 12 months. A true skincare ‘Hero in the form of a multi-purpose natural moisturising and soothing balm, Hero was designed to encourage the sharing of uplifting stories of love, care and friendship, at a time when we need it the most. 
Everyone has been hit hard by the impact of coronavirus, and cancer patients in particular. Therefore, we partnered up with Hero bloggers and organisations, to encourage people to nominate the Heroes who deserve recognition, appreciation and to win a Hero hamper, including the limited edition Hero balm for luxury relaxation.

From your nominations, we have created an online scrapbook of lockdown, carer, patient and therapist Heroes...

Containing shea butter, sweet almond oil, calendula oil and vitamin E as well as lime, bergamot, cardamom and black pepper essential oils, it is fresh smelling and easy to use.

“Everyone has worked so hard over the last 12 months in so many different ways – from members of the NHS to friends and loved ones who have provided counsel on the other end of the phone when a hug was out of reach. Our product is called ‘hero’ because it’s a single item that can be a saving grace for lots of skincare areas and issues – it’s there when you need it – so we wanted to celebrate it by thanking the people who have been heroic to their friends, families, clients, colleagues and loved ones.”
