Dry, Cracked Hands?

Daycare providers wash their hands so many times a day!  They wash before and after food prep.  They wash after diaper changes.  They wash after their own use in the bathroom.  They wash after assisting a child who needs to blow their nose.  After all this washing, they're likely to have dry, cracked hands.

I took a survey of over 200 providers and asked them what their solution to dry, cracked hands was.  The results are listed below.

The number one listed solution was coconut oil.  Coconut oil is very universal.  Besides being used as a moisturizer, it can also be used for cooking and for medicinal purposes. 

A bestselling coconut oil on Amazon is Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
