I have to put hand cream on my hands constantly during cold weather months or my hands start to crack and bleed but I don’t want to use anything inorganic in case I need to touch Willie or anything in his cage. I usually end up washing the hand cream off to handle Willies items which defeats the purpose of me benefiting from the moisturizer. Can anyone recommend a natural hand moisturizer that isn’t toxic to birds?

Hello Kathy .... Have You Ever Tried Using An Organic Virgin Unrefined Coconut Oil ? It Also Gets Very Dry Here In Arizona Thru The Winter Months . I Buy The O-Organics Brand , But Whole Foods Also Sells Another Brand .

I used cerave (just the plain moisturizer) all through my accutane experience and it was 1. very effective and 2. easy to put on and didn't need to be reapplied a lot, so my hands weren't greasy all the time. I'd put it on before bed.

Well I just bought a small jar of coconut oil Organic Unrefined and I’m now using it thanks for the suggestion. 😊 Willie has dry skin also and I’ve read that coconut oil can be fed to birds to help with dry skin. The question now is how do I do that? I put a little in his dish with a little millet spray sprinkled on top of it but he wouldn’t touch it.

If It’s Willie’s Featherless Parts Of His Body That Are Dry ( Feet , Legs & Bill ) Willie Might Enjoy A Little Coconut Oil Rubbed Onto Those Areas In The Dry Season . He Will Get Some Small Amouts Of The Coconut Oil Internally Just By Naturally Grooming His Feet . But If Your Referring To Dry Skin Under His Plumage , An Organic 100% Pure Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice Might Help . You Can Add A Few Drops And Stir It Into His Favorite Bathing Dish , Misty Mate Bottle Or Even His Drinking Water .
