Repcillin Erica’s Hand Cream with Crocodile Oil, Organic Lavender & Rosemary
Repcillin Erica’s Hand Cream is a light, non-greasy, velvety cream enriched with pure Crocodile Oil to help maintain youthful-looking hands. It banishes dryness and fine lines, as well as fading pigmentation marks. The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities of Lavender and anti-bacterial properties of Rosemary Essential Oil help soothe irritation and redness whilst healing damaged skin. The antifungal properties of Peppermint essential oil can also reduce fungal nail infection.
It contains no parabens, no sulfates, no mineral oils, no phthalates, no artificial colours and no synthetic fragrance.
A hybrid between spearmint and water mint, peppermint has been used for centuries, ranging from cleansing agents to therapeutic qualities and even its ability to cure those pesky winter colds and flu. As a herb, peppermint is chock full of nutrients which provide a number of health and skin benefits. It is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, dietary fibre and Omega 3 fatty acids. Peppermint oil provides a soothing treatment for rashes or sores, and has a strong healing effect. It can also come in handy to fight sun-related problems like burns, as the vitamins and Omega 3 fatty acids cool and soothe your skin.
Rosemary is rich in both calcium and vitamin B6, which supports collagen levels, helping to rebuild skin’s plumpness. It also deals with inflammation of the skin. As we age, our skin struggles to deal with inflammation and inflamed skin can’t function properly as cell renewal is slowed down and oxygen levels are limited casting a dullness across the complexion.

Every jar of Repcillin Erica’s Hand Cream comes with lavender and rosemary sprigs tided to the jar with raffia string made from the dried and shredded leaves of the palmyra palm tree and harvested from renewable sources in Madagascar. In 2015, the International Trace Centre’s (ITC) Trade and Environment Programme in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) launched a two-year project in Madagascar to improve and develop the raffia-palm value chain for the international handicraft and fashion industries. The aim of the initiative is to enhance women’s economic empowerment and strengthen the climate resilience of Madagascar’s raffia sector.
Here at Repcillin we are proudly sourcing a sustainable supply of raffia from women’s associations based around Madagascar’s Makira Natural Park, which have a long history of raffia production for local markets. We decided to source raffia from Makira not only because of the high quality found in this area, but also the added benefits from enhanced biodiversity conservation.
