• Koster Keunen formulates the Heavy Duty Cream as an extra-moisturizing treatment that naturally soothes and restores over-stressed skin.


  • NaturalAtum: Our natural replacement for petrolatum, lubricates the skin and forms a protective film.
  • Bayberry Wax: Provides structure to the cream, but melts at body temperature, creating a ‘buttery’ sensation.
  • Kester Wax K-24: Is an effective slip agent and a natural replacement for silicones that leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated.
