I work as an Orthodontic assistant and a few years ago I had problems with my hands. There were sores that wouldn't heal and the whole back of my hand all the way up to the middle knuckle of my fingers was red, raw, and easily irritated. I ended up at the dermatologist office looking for some solution. Everyone thought I had a latex allergy, though the gloves I used at work weren't latex. I left the dermatologists office feeling strongly that he was a quack, but he was the one who first recommended this lotion to me and I swear by to this day.

I find it really hard to find this cetaphil lotion, which is specifically for hands. Most drug stores that carry every other cetaphil product will often not have this one.

I notice that in the winter and especially around to holidays, my hand get dry and start to crack from all the hand washing I do for work and around food prep. I was compleatly out of this lotion this year and couldn't wait for it to arrive. My hands were cracked and bleeding. After just two days of putting it on mainly at night before bed ( a few times during the day two) my hands feel and look remarkably better. most of the cracks are practically healed.

While I was waiting for my shipment I was using the basic Cetaphil Ultra Hydrating Lotion. It was helping but not really fixing the problem. This lotion for hands is creamier and a little thicker and stays on better with light hand washing.

Good, but not great

This hand cream is effective, but takes a long time to absorb-- best applied at night or when you have time for it to absorb.
Good, but not great routine hand cream.

      Comments about Cetaphil Therapeutic Hand Cream, 3 oz:

      I'm very discriminating with my cosmetics because of my desire to be green and healthy, so it's been quite a challenge to find an effective cream for my eczema-prone hands that doesn't have petroleum, paraffin, or mineral oil. This is the only hand cream I've been able to locate so far that is thick enough to protect my hands from a flareup. Per my dermatologist's advice, I need to apply hand cream every time I wash my hands.

      It moisturizes intensively but isn't really greasy or slippery. It's better than Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Cream, which is more akin to Neutrogena Norwegian Hand Formula in that it's glycerin based and oil free. Chapped, parched skin really needs emollients like oils and waxes. Cetaphil uses shea butter, which seals in moisture without leaving a heavy feeling. I appreciate that this product is unscented; I'd really rather not eat (or even smell) perfume when I touch food. I just wish that it didn't have paraben (a hormone disruptor) (and that Cetaphil's other creams and lotions didn't contain it or petroleum products), but I'm willing to overlook that fact because this is such an excellent cream. I would buy this by the case!

          Comments about Cetaphil Therapeutic Hand Cream, 3 oz:

          Have a cut on the tip of my thumb which hurts because of the winter dryness, which also keeps it cracked open, therefore making it unable to heal. One application slowly rubbing it in for a few minutes and the skin was pliable again and stopped hurting.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was remarkably quick ! All items intact.

          I use this as a daily hand cream and like it. It's a bit heavy when I first put it on, but it does absorb quickly. It is unscented, so it won't conflict with any perfume you are wearing.
