Smear it on your face, your lips, your hands, your elbows, and even behind your ears… because with STEAMCREAM, you can smear it pretty much anywhere. Just as the name suggests, this moisturizing cream is treated directly with pure, unrefined steam to create a soft, luxuriant and glossy emulsion. To top it all, its scent is invigorating, and the limited edition tin packing, simply stunning.
THE LUXURIOUS MULTI-TASKER
Soft, light and suitable for sensitive skin, this multi-functional moisturizer is great for face, hands and, while we’re at it, your whole body.
The fact that SteamCream can be used anywhere on the body should not go unnoted! The 'green dream' of this UK-based brand is to seriously reduce the number of beauty products per person. Which is why they developed an all-round, luxurious moisturizing cream that is made by hand, using natural, traceable and vegan ingredients. It also goes without saying they don’t test on animals and that the cream is packaged in the most minimal, environmentally responsible and functional packaging they could find.
SteamCream by name, steamed cream by nature. The brand’s name derives from the way SteamCream is made: the power and energy produced by bubbling steam allows the ingredients to emulsify instantly, producing a beautifully textured, light and glossy cream that breaks down immediately on contact with the skin and is easily absorbed. The looseness of the cream’s emulsion allows each ingredient to break back down to its purest form, penetrating the skin where needed and leaving a healthy-looking glow.
SteamCream is made up of natural ingredients such as vegetable oils and vetextracten; ingredients that are ethical, the finest quality and, where possible, sourced from local and organic farms.
The most important ingredients are organic jojoba oil (softens the skin), Lavender Oil (reduces and helps irritated skin), almond oil (keeps skin healthy and strong with vitamin E), cocoa butter, an oatmeal infusion (hydrates and softens) and the natural extract of orange blossom (improves elasticity). The formula is topped off with a fragrance created from a natural blend of pure essential oils selected for their toning, soothing and healing qualities.
Attention has also been paid in creating packaging that is both environmentally friendly and attractive. Developed in Japan by the likes of Takayuki Totsuka and Hiroyuki Takahashi, the limited-edition 75g tins boast unique designs and can be easily recycled. Once a specific design has sold out, it will not be manufactured again, making these funky little tins both beautiful and highly collectible!
SteamCream is the perfect on-the-go product for anyone with a busy lifestyle. At 75g, this one-size-fits-all cream is also a convenient travel partner as it fits perfectly – and legally – in your hand luggage. It comes as no surprise then that SteamCream won the 2010 British Beauty Award’s ‘Best New Everyday Skincare Product’.
