Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream

Joyful is a marriage of moisture-lush avocado oils & hibiscus flower, sweetened by the vivid aroma of the blackcurrant berry. As a base, oil is extracted from the kernels of organic avocado pears, grown as nature intended in the north of New Zealand. Avocado oil is a potent source of omegas 3 and 9, as well as the vitamins A, B1, B2 and D. Chlorophyll and Vitamin E help to reduce the appearance of scars and age spots, and mitigate the signs of ageing.
