Vita Canis Hand Butter is a semi solid butter with essential oils. Hand Butter soothes and moisturises dry and cracked  skin. It is 100% natural, without parabens, petrolatum or synthetic fragrances.

Two main ingredients in Hand Butter are moisturizing shea butter and coconut oil. Hand Butter also contains essential oils: skin revitalising carrot seed and anti-inflammatory German chamomile essential oils.

Shea Butter for aging skin.

Shea butter helps cell regeneration and capillary circulation. Therefore it is very good for aging skin. It is humectant, meaning it absorbs moisture from the air. Therefore it is also excellent for dry skin. (L. Price; Carrier oils for aromatherapy and massage, 2012). With long-term use of our Hand Butter, many people report skin softening and strengthening.

Coconut Oil for dry skin.

Many people use coconut oil for cosmetic purposes. To improve the health and appearance of their skin.
Studies show that coconut oil can improve the moisture content of dry skin.  And also reduce the symptoms of eczema. Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants reduce inflammation and heals wound fast.

Essential Oils in Hand Butter.

Carrot seed essential oil is an excellent cellular regenerator for the skin. It has been described as one of the strongest revitalising essential oils. (S.Battaglia; The complete guide to aromatherapy, 2002)

German chamomile is anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. It has healing properties, such as when our bodies form scar tissues. And also relieves itchy skin.

Hand Butter is vegan & cruelty free. It quickly absorbs into the dry skin, leaving hands amazingly soft.

“As a dog groomer, my hands are punished daily from the harsh effects of bathing and drying dogs, exposure to shampoos and other styling products, all of which leave my hands feeling tight, sore, itchy and dry.

Since using Vita Canis Hand Butter I’ve seen a dramatic difference in the condition of my hands. The butter isn’t greasy and absorbs into the skin with ease. Its smells delightful and can even be used pre-dog bath, acting like a barrier and protecting your hands through out the grooming process”.

    I received this product today after ordering yesterday! Great service! With the current hand washing that we have to adhere to my hands feel like sandpaper, I have only applied it twice and I can already feel some relief! It is small enough to carry around in my pocket whilst working at the animal rescue centre and I am very pleased with it! Thank you Jitka xxx

What People Say...

When we got home from the hospital with our new arrival it was clear that Perri, one of our miniature poodles, maternal instincts kicked in and went into overdrive. She was immediately acting like a mother separated from her pups and just wanted to care for the ‘naked puppy’. She has a history of being so motherly, even to the point that she has produced milk for puppies that aren’t hers even before she had a litter and has mothered every type of animal she could. She was panting, pacing and unable to relax for long at all. She could whine for England!

We tried other herbal remedies we had at hand for a previous anxious dog and nothing worked at all. She stopped eating and stressed herself into overheating too. Her stress was starting to impact the other dogs and she just couldn’t unwind. No matter if we worked off her energy with a walk and she wasn’t even interested in her usual mind games or call games. We also couldn’t offer long-lasting treats and chews too often as they gave her an upset stomach.

As soon as the Calming Floral Spray arrived I gave the bed a spritz and put some on her coat and the change was instant. She just got on her bed and fell asleep. She stopped panting and barely whines now, started eating again and she only does a bit of whining if the baby cries. We have now been able to positively reinforce her calm behaviour. I honestly can’t recommend this enough to people.
