If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of owning a Grown Alchemist hand cream, you’ll definitely be familiar with the handsome packaging—they’re a mainstay in beauty flatlays. The much-loved Vanilla & Orange Peel Hand Cream ($25) is one of the brand’s top five sellers, which says a lot about its lush scent and easily absorbed formula. A richer version, fragranced with Persian Rose, completes Grown’s hand cream offering. So with two seriously good products already covering our hand-softening needs, we had to know—why add another?

Co-founder Keston Muijs says the brand's newly-launched Age-Repair Hand Cream ($35), was an important addition; it's designed to both treat and prevent ageing. Intrigued? As twenty-something women who previously considered anti-ageing hand creams a purchase we could put off for at least another decade, we certainly were. According to Muijs: “The skin on your hands is much thinner than the rest of the body making it more susceptible to damage; the hands are also heavily exposed to UV rays, which really accelerates the ageing process.” All told, if you want to keep your hands looking young, you'll need to start looking after them now.

 

Keep reading for Muijs’ thoughts on why you need an anti-ageing hand cream.
