Ingredients from packaging:

Aloe Vera Juice, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Castor Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Macadamia Oil, Isoamyl laurate, Pineapple Extract, Witch Hazel Extract , Sorbitol, Bentonite Clay, Bayberry Wax, MSM, Glyceryl Caprlyate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Anisic acid, Xanthan Gum, Essential Oils of Sweet Orange and Peppermint.

Directions from packaging:

At the end of the day after bathing rub into your hands and feet. If you're not going right away to bed we recommend putting on some socks to prevent slipping over because it leaves a protective film on your skin which is slippery for about 10 minutes. Do not use on broken or irritated skin. Please test on a small area first. The Pep Me Up isn't just for hands and feet - it's really great for any area of really dry skin like elbow and knees. Because it's quite rich, think of it as a night-time treatment rather than something you d apply during the day (although we have to confess that we do use it a lot more often than that, especially after doing the washing up!). Pop it on before bed and wake up feeling lovely. x

PETA Cruelty-free Companies

Understanding scores

Cosmetics and personal care products are not required to be tested for safety before being allowed on the market. The Skin Deep® scoring system was designed to help the public understand whether a product is safe to use or whether it contains ingredients of concern.

Every product and ingredient in Skin Deep gets a two-part score – one for hazard and one for data availability. The safest products score well by both measures, with a low hazard rating and a fair or better data availability rating.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Skin Deep ingredient hazard score, from 1 to 10, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED™ mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.

Score legend

Data availability

The Skin Deep data availability rating reflects the number of scientific studies about the product or ingredient in the published scientific literature.
