Shepherd’s Friend Hand Creme

(10 customer reviews)


Shepherd’s Friend Hand Creme is made right here on the farm in my Cuisinart.  I’ve been tweaking it for over 15 years to find just the right combination of luxurious oils and butters to create a nourishing, protecting, and pleasant to use hand cream.

Farmers are always out in the weather and know what works to keep fingers from cracking and cuticles healthy. I use it on sunburn, bug bites, crusty spots, poison ivy, nettle stings, etc.. The Ghana Beige Shea Butter base is loaded with vitamins and minerals that feed your skin. The lavender essential oil is antiseptic, anti-fungal, and an excellent bug repellent.

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Shepherd’s Friend Hand Creme is formulated for the hardworking farmer, fiber artist, gardener, potter, crafter or anybody who works with their hands. This is not a foo-foo top-dressing hand creme. It is thick, creamy, and will coat and protect your skin while healing and moisturizing your hands, elbows, heels and other crusty spots. I make no medical claims, but I’ve been told Shepherd’s Friend creme makes bug bites and scratches disappear while healing those cracks and torn cuticles.

Ingredients: unrefined shea butter, beeswax, essential oil of lavender or lemongrass, vitamin E, organic jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil.

    Received my order of hand Creme. Beautiful packaging which shows me the caring that went into sending my order. The Creme is amazing, besides working on around the house chores and all the hand washing due to the COVID19, I truly enjoy the softness and wonderful smell of my Creme. Will definitely share my thoughts and praises I have for your Creme. 😊 Thank you.

    My son is recovering from burns on his arms, hands, and face. He likes the feel of this hand cream on his newly healed, very tender skin. It does a great job keeping the new skin protected and moist. He prefers this hand cream to the other cremes and lotions we’ve used.

    Received my shepherd’s friend hand cream a few days ago. Just want to tell you how much I love this
    cream. I usually pick up a jar at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival every year. This year of course I
    could not do that. I use your cream at night; after a day of constant hand washing. The cream softens
    my hands and the lavender is a calming scent to help with sleep. Thanks again for a wonderful product.

    I discovered Shepherd’s Friend hand creme at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival several years ago. It has since become my go-to lotion and now I buy their goat’s milk soap. Everything is luscious and all natural. The customer service, packaging, and product are all perfection. I am so happy to have found Maggie’s Farm!

    My daughter lives in Syracuse and found you at a festival last year. She bought me a small jar of your hand cream! I love love love it! Today I ordered more and I want to share some with a friend who’s having trouble with her hands with so much hand washing & using hand sanitizer these days!

    Love, love, love this hand cream. I have super sensitive eczema prone skin and this cream soothes and heals my skin. I have used it for years and I recommend it to anyone who will listen. Makes great holiday gifts, too!

    My husband discovered this amazing cream and brought it home to me as a gift. I LOVE this cream!!! I use it all year long. It is especially wonderful in the winter when my skin is super dry. The lavender oil scent is soothing so I put it on my hands and neck before I go to sleep.

  8. Candice MacWilliam

    My husband’s hands were cracked and peeling from work and harsh winter. He tried everything and nothing worked. We received a small jar of shepherds cream for Christmas and used this with gloves and his hands healed. This is the only thing that worked and he is so grateful. We make sure we have plenty on hand now. Thank you for an amazing product.

    I keep this cream in my hospital bag and in my car. I work as a nurse, and my hands are so dry! This softens them and provides a protective barrier for the constant sanitizing I put my hands through. I like to moisturize every time I get in the car and let it really soak in. My nurse friends love it as well. The lavender scent is very pleasant, but the lemongrass is wonderful as well. Highly recommend!
