Cuticle Cream with Wheat Protein

I am back in an extremely dry climate and my cuticles can prove it! Scary! Now is not the time for me to apply to be a hand model. I am also too embarrassed to get a manicure. (Yes, they really are that bad!) Today I wanted to make a cuticle cream that would soothe and hydrate the cuticles. Shall we head to the test kitchen?

I added wheat protein to this recipe for the amino acids and high glutamine levels. Wheat Protein also adds moisture, perfect for a cuticle cream. This is one ingredient that takes a product out of the ball park in quality. What do you think?

I also added Isopropyl Myristate to this formulation to prevent an oily greasy feeling in this cuticle cream. I hate it when I try to solve one problem but end up creating another. I really don’t want to leave oily prints on everything I touch.

I really was surprised when I first applied this cuticle cream. It was fluid, hydrating and light. I actually went back for more and applied it to my arms. I can tell where I applied the lotion and where I didn’t even five hours after applying. I want to make a huge batch that I can just bathe in. My cuticles will need a daily treatment but I am super pleased with this formulation. Request a sample in your next order and see if you would rate it five stars too!
