The crème is white, in an olive oil base so thicker than the lotion and comes in a tub. Due to its essential oils, the crème has a pleasant aromatic odour. It has a nourishing consistency when you apply it, and is particularly good for those with dry skin. As it tends to get applied more thickly it probably requires less applications than the lotion. It?s economical as it goes a long way and lasts a long time. As it has an olive oil base it is slightly water resistant so good when one perspires heavily from the brow or is outdoors around water. When the Crème is rubbed into the skin it is slightly tacky to begin and then becomes transparent and leaves no oily residue.
