Hand hygiene is important in keeping viruses, germs, and infections at bay.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) one should wash their hands for at least 20 seconds.  Keeping the hands well moisturized is also necessary.  Washing one’s hands frequently can lead to cracked skin which can also increase your risk of contracting a disease.  In keeping hands moisturized, it is important to use products that are designated for the hands.  

In this post we review moisturizers for the hands from black owned brands.  We also include Shea butter oil as this has even greater moisturizing properties than Shea butter. There are MANY options from black owned brands. These include products specifically designated for the hands, or products designated for BOTH the hands and body.  See the company and product links below for details.
