Nursem Founders Jonny and Antonia

Born on a nursing ward.

For the last 11 years, our co-founder, 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, Antonia teamed up with her husband Jonny and started working on a hand cream formula. They wanted the product to be effective, natural and something nurses could use repeatedly throughout a busy shift. So for over 7 years they  worked with a group of British nurses, laboratories and Newcastle Science City to create a range of therapeutic formulas.

Fast forward to now and Nursem is a passionately advocated brand, loved by nurses, mums and many more. We'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.
