Does your mother complain about dry hands? If so, we have the perfect Mother’s Day gift for her.

Manuka Honey Hand Cream offers fantastic relief for aging and dry skin. One of its main functions is that it helps draw out impurities from the pores, making it a naturally effective cleansing agent.

Hand cream is crucial to moisturise the delicate outer layer of your palm’s thick skin.

For older folks, a good hand cream not only protects the skin but also contains anti-aging properties.

High-quality hand creams are a Mother’s Day gift that your mother will cherish, making her feel that youthful glow again.

At I Still Call Australia Home (ISCAH), we have many hand creams available in our extensive range — enriched with extracts of Australian natives such as Grass Lily, Kakadu Plum, and Quandong.

Sure, they smell like a lush garden with plants from exotic countries, but the ingredients are all locally sourced here in the vast landscapes of Australia.

What’s more, we love our wild and cuddly pets just as much as we love our mothers (and do we love our mothers!). Our hand creams are cruelty-free and never tested on animals.

Just like our original and artistic scarfs, all of our hand creams are individually wrapped and packed with a complimentary gift bag. If you’d rather give a gift card for Mother’s Day, you also have that option.
