What's your favorite gluten free hand cream? I wash my hands 10-20 times during the day and need a good handcream, especially for the winter but even now in the summer, my hands are dry and rough. I prefer one that is not too oily once it is on.

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

I bought some after you suggested them ages ago. Nice! And even Wally World carries them.

I have a job that requires a lot of hand-washing (I'm a vet tech). I like Aquaphor for when my hands are really in a bad way, since it stays on even through repeated washings, but I personally prefer not to use petroleum-based products unless I really have to. The rest of the time, I use pure jojoba oil (the closest plant oil to human skin oils. Trader Joe's carries this) or pure shea butter (naturally anti-microbial. Organic Essence is a good brand). Both ae safe to use on lips as well as skin. You can also just use a dab of olive oil or coconut butter, too, in a pinch. If you get the pure oil/butter, you can be certain there are no gluten-containing additives, no potentially-irritating fragrances, and no fillers. Look for oils/butters preserved with rosemary extract rather than vitamin e/tocopherol/tocopherol acetate, as these anti-oxidants can be extracted from wheat germ oil.

Does your skin feel oily after using the jojoba oil or shea butter? How do you keep the palms of your hands from being to greasy? Do you just use this once or twice a day and not re-apply during the day?I appreciate everyone's help.

I have used Cerave before, didn't realize it was gluten free, thank you. It works well for me most sesons but I find in the winter, not quite strong enough.
