For the last 11 years, Antonia has worked 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 fact, in 2011 this became so bad that she was forced to take a week off work.

After suffering so much discomfort and learning that this problem affects nearly all nurses, she teamed up with her husband Jonny and started working on a hand cream formula that was effective, natural, free from nasty chemicals and something nurses could use repeatedly throughout a busy shift. Over the last 7 years they have been working with a group of British nurses, laboratories and Newcastle Science City to create a range of naturally protective skincare formulas for all hard working hands.

Together, they’re on a mission – to make sure that every nurse and midwife in the country gets Nursem for free and at the same time to help all other hard working hands in need. So we promise that for every product sold we will give a month’s worth of free Nursem to a nurse or a midwife. This is the Nursem Promise – and it is just the beginning of our mission to care for those who care for us.
