At the beginning of 2020 could anyone have predicted what a hot topic of conversation hand care would become? All of us now know we must regularly wash our hands, but what about the toll this takes on our poor old hands?

I am sure by now that many of you will have seen this product, if you are a nurse you definitely will know about it! I love every thing about Nursem,their mission, the back story, the branding but above all the lovely products! I mentioned them first in my post about my recent online random purchases
Nursem promise that for every hand care product sold they will give a month’s worth of free Nursem to a nurse or a midwife.
The story behind the product.
Antonia the founder,worked for 11 years as a paediatric nurse. She often came home with sore, cracked and bleeding hands as a result of the constant hand washing needed to keep her patients infection free. In 2011 this became so bad that she was forced to take a week off work. Antonia needed to find a solution, so after teaming up with her husband, a group of British nurses, laboratories and Newcastle Science City Nursem was born!
