Tested on farmers in Peachester and Blackheath.


Farmer’s Friend Hand Balm was originally created for Jason, a local strawberry farmer. His hands were painful, dry and cracked, and he desperately needed help.  It took months of research and collaboration before we finally got it right, and finally, Jason no longer had sore hands. Not long after, Farmer’s Friend was helping other people who use and abuse their hands. Mechanics, chefs, concretors, chippies, nurses, artists, surfboard shapers, cleaners, dental technicians, tree loppers – the list keeps growing!

We recommend rubbing this creamy bar between clean hands (like you would do with soap) for instant relief and lasting protection. Many of our happy customers like to scratch a little bit off and rub that between their fingers first – the warmth of your hands spreads the love around. Whatever way you do it, just get it on you!  Farmer’s Friend Hand Balm is also great for elbows, knees and other craggy spots. It works wonders on cuticles and calms any raw skin.

Farmer’s Friend Hand Balm is natural skincare at its simplest and purest form. It contains only natural ingredients, organically certified wherever possible, with no nasty chemicals. It is nut-free and gluten-free.

So what’s in it?

Essential Oils

Our blend of frankincense, lavender, ylang ylang, atlas cedar and lemon give Farmer’s Friend its wonderful fragrance. These oils soothe anxiety, stress and depression, and calm the mind. The oils are antibacterial and antiseptic. They encourage wound healing, stimulate blood supply and promote cellular regeneration in your skin.

Coconut Oil

Packed full of 6 essential fatty acids, this oil is anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Coconut oil is light, gentle and soothing to sensitive or damaged skin. It’s also deeply nourishing due to its  high saturated fat content.

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa Butter is highly anti-oxidant and ultra-hydrating. It consists mostly of saturated fat and encourages the healing of dry, cracked, sensitive skin. With loads of essential fatty acids, it is absorbed easily and protects the skin for hours. Cocoa butter adds a protective, moisturising layer to your skin, which blocks the effects of cold temperatures and sun damage.

Raw Beeswax

Beeswax is anti-bacterial and water resistant. It protects your hands from frequent washing and promotes skin healing  due to its high Vitamin A content.

Jojoba Oil

The combination of fatty acids in jojoba oil closely mimics our own skin’s natural sebum. As a result, this ultra-nourishing oil is absorbed effortlessly.

Non-nano Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is a naturally occurring mineral. It protects the skin from sun damage and it soothes irritated, itchy skin. It is not absorbed into the body.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant and works to block free-radicals, which play a large part in cell death.

    Great Product! Finally found something safe and natural that works! I LOVE Farmer’s Friend on my cracked heal. Rub a little at bedtime, cover with Band-Aid -presto next morning it’s all healed! 🙂
    Applying on painful split finger close to nail tonight. I also rub on knees and elbows to keep them soft. Noticed that if I apply immediately after drying hands this keeps them from drying out too. Sometimes I add it to my normal cream for extra moisturising.

    Excellent product! I love the texture of this balm and the way it instantly absorbs into the skin. I have VERY sensitive skin and find that this product is non-irritant and hypoallergenic. I also love the fact that it is natural and contains organic ingredients. ? Another benefit is that it can also be used in addition to other moisturising creams.

    CANADA chiming in on FEISTY FERDY’s great products. Here in Calgary Alberta at over 3400 feet in elevation, sub zero temperatures, and very low humidity skin chapping and cracking is a very common inconvenience. I have recently had personal experience with this inconvenience ie: cracked and bleeding skin caused by the described extreme conditions. Applying FARMERS FRIEND balm to the cracked and bleeding areas relieved the pain and bleeding over night. Skin was soft and pliable in an almost MEDICINAL way within 12 hours. Now I’m a believer in this miraculous product I use it every second day and the result has been “no more split chapped skin”. Do your self a favor and try this product, can’t say enough about it!!!

    Tested the hand balm then after a few hours had to have some as my hands still felt nourished (great left overnight too). Purchased the luscious tinted lip balm too (courage; love a hint of red), another great product – truely just a hint of colour, stays on without the greasy feeling.

    We had a lovely chance to test some lovely Farmer’s Friend hand balm and courage – Where we live (3,000 ft and cold), it can get extremely dry and my wife is used to getting cracked skin, etc.

    We have been using it for less than a week and already after the first application everything healed immediately! My wife has not seen anything like this and would definitely recommend it to everyone!

    Just a note to say that i live in the United States in an area with low humidity so dry skin and lips can really take a beating if not properly treated. I played all sports and thought this type of thing was more for females until i moved to this area. But the longer i lived here the more i realized i needed to do something about my dry and scaly skin. So for the last few years I have tried all types of lip balms and moisturizers but now I am so happy I came across – Feisty Ferdy as it is by far the best i have ever used. When friends and family …without prompting … take notice and let me know how fresh and smooth my skin looks and feels , I know I found the best product . Prior to using Feisty Ferdy products I never had anyone make such compliments . I never usually take the time to send in a comment on any product but felt compelled to do so here . No more looking for me , thanks Feisty Ferdy!

    I have replaced my famous name face cream with Double Double face balm, and now await the launch of Feisty Ferdy Double Double face cream, serum, toner, cleanser and WHATEVER COMES ON THE MARKET WILL BE IN MY SKINCARE COLLECTION. I started with Farmer’s Friend Hand Balm, and in the 7 months since I first used Farmers Friend I have not suffered a single split in my finger nor in my foot due to the dry environment which has caused my skin to be dry. Unlike regular skin lotions and creams, once I apply Farmer’s Freind on my hands and feet it stays on! Like the luscious lip balms. NUE is great for guys because it is a neutral shade, and so moisturising with natural sunscreen. If I use sunscreen on my face and body why not the lips, which are still part of my skin. No more dry lips! No more dry skin! Whats not to like? This skincare range really works. Try it and never look back. I cannot go a day without my Feisty Ferdy skincare. The lines on my neck have disappeared, the fine lines under my eyes have diminished, no kidding. my elbows are soft like my hands. And the natural scent is wonderful. I love handmade and not tested on animals – a truly safe and superior product, if you want rejuvenation and absolute nourishment.

    Try feisty ferdy soap! It is so soft and leaves your skin soft and moisturised. I am addicted. No more regular soaps ridden with harsh chemicals. My skin deserves better?No more dry skin thank you Feisty Ferdy, skin feels like it should, soft and wonderful. Before bedtime, shower or bathe with feisty ferdy soap, then apply Farmers Friend hand balm on all your dry areas, then Double Double face balm on face and neck, then feel and see how rejuvenated and soft your skin is in the morning!

    If I could give 10 stars I would! My partner is a rock climber and uses his Belay Buddy Balm every day – he loves it! I’m a potter, so my hands were always drying out, becoming cracked and sore….until I discovered Feisty Ferdy!!

    Absolutely love love love Feisty Ferdy products – couldn’t recommend more highly!
