Chagrin Valley


The Intention

An ultra-rich, ultra-moisturizing hand cream formulated with moisturizing shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and healing botanicals of rosemary, peppermint, devil’s claw, juniper berries, eucalyptus, and thyme, this blend is the perfect solution for overworked hands. Smoothing, soothing, and softening, this gentle cream is wonderful for sensitive skin and even the most chapped, cracked, rough, or weathered hands. It’s also great for elbows, knees, and anywhere else that needs some extra love and moisture.


The Ingredients

Organic virgin shea butter, organic virgin coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, organic rosemary, organic devil’s claw, organic juniper berries, organic peppermint, organic eucalyptus, organic thyme, organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter

Organic sunflower oil infused with organic rosemary, devil’s claw, juniper berries, peppermint, eucalyptus, and thyme

The Ritual

A little goes a long way. Gently massage cream onto your clean hands daily after work, gardening, leisure activities, or anytime your hands need a little extra care. Especially effective if used when skin is still warm and damp after bathing or washing hands.

The Chagrin Valley Story

Founded in 2001 by former nurse and science teacher, Ida Friedman, Chagrin Valley began as a soapmaking hobby that soon blossomed into so much more. As Ida’s career experiences in medicine and science evolved, she became increasingly concerned about how many toxic chemicals were present in skincare products and the adverse effects they had on us, our children, and our planet.

Believing – and living – deeply in environmental stewardship, Chagrin Valley works hard as a family-owned and family-operated business to be vigilant about their impact on the environment. Reusing, recycling, and composting every day are a part of their business ethics, and they are always deeply mindful of how their daily activities affect Mother Earth and her inhabitants. They only use organic ingredients in their creations, sourced from very well-researched local farmers and small businesses that share their commitment to environmental responsibility. All products are crafted in small batches in their Chagrin Valley, Ohio studio, and all packaging is recyclable or compostable.

Another beautiful cornerstone of Chagrin Valley is their support of pollinators like bees and butterflies. Knowing that these wonderful beings sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce, the Chagrin Valley team has created pollinator-habitats at their homes and soap factory by providing food (nectar plants), shelter, water, and larval plants (plants that the butterfly caterpillars like to eat). Each year they are adding more and more native plants to their gardens.
