Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Moisturizing Hand & Cuticle Cream–Restore Moisture Lost from Extra Hand Washing

Hand washing is essential for good health, now more than ever. In addition to all the regular times we’ve always known to wash our hands (before preparing food, after blowing your nose, etc.), the CDC now recommends washing hands after touching surfaces in public and before/after touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

It is undeniable that hand washing and hand sanitizer are more important than ever before. However, this increased hand washing is not without consequences. Every time you wash your hands, the natural oils on your hands are stripped away which compromises the natural skin barrier. This, combined with harsh cleansing agents, can lead to dry, irritated, damaged skin. It’s important to use a moisturizer often, especially after hand washing, to restore moisture lost from extra hand washing.

I’ve recently developed eczema on my left hand, and it is caused by excessive hand washing. It is very frustrating, but I’ve found a way to manage it. Every time I wash my hands, or any time they’re feeling particularly dry, I apply a pea-sized amount of Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Moisturizing Hand & Cuticle Cream. This is a product I’ve been using for several months now, but I’m using it much more often these days and have come to count on it for relief since I developed eczema.

Please note that in my review of this product, I will only be reviewing it as a hand cream. My cuticles have always been very healthy so I don’t notice any difference in my cuticles when I use this cream.

My hands instantly feel more hydrated when I apply this hand cream. That is true of most hand creams, but with this one I can feel a difference long after application. Because of my frequent hand washing, I don’t feel that extra hydration all day long, but I don’t mind reapplying. I am very pleased with the level of hydration I achieve with this hand cream.


My biggest pet-peeve with hand creams is that greasy feeling that many of them have…like you’ve rubbed Crisco all over your hands! Not a good feeling, and not practical if you plan on touching anything. I was drawn to this Yes to Coconut hand cream because I specifically searched for non-greasy hand creams and this was one of the results. “Non-greasy” is in the product description, so I had to give it a go!

When I first tried this hand cream, I thought “Oh no, this is just another greasy hand cream.” That’s because when you first apply it, it does feel quite greasy! I continued using it because I liked how hydrating it is, and I could put it on before sitting down to watch TV or anything else that didn’t require me to use my hands. But finally, I realized that it just needed some time to sink in. I was being impatient, as usual. This hand cream does sink into the skin well after a few minutes. If you give it that time, you’ll find that they were being honest with the “non-greasy” claim. 🙂


Please note that the ingredient list shown here does not match what is shown on Amazon or, but it is correct. I reached out to Yes To customer service and they confirmed that I have the most recent formulation.

Water, Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, Stearyl alcohol, Stearic acid, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetearyl alcohol, Glycerin, Cetearyl olivate, Sorbitan olivate, Polyglyceryl-10 laurate, Sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), Calendula ocinalis flower extract, Psidium guajava fruit extract, Orchis mascula flower extract, Musa sapientum (banana) fruit extract, Morinda citrifolia (noni) fruit extract, Hibiscus sabdari-a flower extract, Aleurites moluccana (kukui) seed extract, Polyglyceryl-3 stearate, Tetrasodium glutamate diacetate, Allantoin, Citric acid, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum (natural), Coumarin

There are a whopping 35 ingredients in this hand cream. I’m not sure if that is common for hand creams since this is the first one I’ve reviewed, but most of the other products that I’ve reviewed ingredients for, have only 20 to 25. Thirty-five seems like a lot!

This hand cream contains some amazing skin-loving ingredients. I’m impressed! I’ll list the most noteworthy ingredients and their functions below:

  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
    • Moisturizer
    • Anti-inflammatory
    • Helps wound healing
  • Cetearyl olivate & Sorbitan olivate
    • Together, they form a natural emulsifier with the trade name “Olivem 1000” which generates liquid crystal structures that mimic lipid structures in the outermost layer of the skin
      • Repairs skin barrier
  • Sesame seed oil
    • Contains nourishing and moisturizing fatty acids
    • Repairs and regenerates dry skin
  • Sweet almond oil
    • Loaded with nourishing fatty acids
    • Contains vitamin E
    • Smooths, softens, and moisturizes
  • Avocado oil
    • Packed full of nourishing fatty acids
    • Extraordinary skin penetration ability
  • Calendula ocinalis flower extract
    • Anti-inflammatory
    • Antioxidant
    • Healing properties

The one unfortunate thing about the beneficial ingredients in this formula, is that there are only four of them in the top ten (ingredients with the highest concentrations). The other six ingredients in the top ten are “neutral” ingredients that help the formula to work, but don’t really provide any benefit to the skin. These are ingredients like solvents and emollients. 

There are a couple of bad ingredients on the list. The “Fragrance,” while natural, is of unknown origins and could cause irritation or sensitization of the skin. Coumarin is also added for fragrance. This is one of the “EU 26 fragrances” that has to be labeled separately (can’t be included with “fragrance” or “parfum”) because it has allergen potential. 

Fortunately, Fragrance and Coumarin are the last two ingredients on the list, which means they have the lowest concentrations. I don’t think the low concentration of these fragrance ingredients will cause a problem for most people, but just like with all fragranced products, it’s best for anyone with very sensitive skin to avoid.


As I just mentioned in the ingredients section above, the “Fragrance” and Coumarin ingredients which give this product its scent, could be problematic for some. However, if you don’t have sensitive skin, and you like coconut, you will probably enjoy the fragrance of this product. It is very mild, but this hand cream does have a slightly sweet coconut scent.


This hand cream is definitely a bargain at only $5.99! It’s a great product overall, plus the tube is generously sized for a hand cream at three ounces ($2.00/ounce). A tube of this hand cream lasts me a very long time, even when I use it frequently. 

All Yes To products are very reasonably priced and I really appreciate that! Usually, products that contain mostly natural ingredients are very expensive. Yes To does a great job of keeping their prices low so their products will be accessible to all. 🙂

I wholeheartedly agree with Yes To’s product claims for the Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Moisturizing Hand & Cuticle Cream. I have definitely enjoyed using it, and I’m glad I have a backup tube for when I run out of my first one soon!

I think this hand cream is such a good affordable option for anyone looking for something to provide a good amount of moisture, without making their hands feel greasy!

  1. Great Review on this hand cream Lauren, I’ve never heard of it before, I generally use my skincare products and rub any excess into my hands morning and night, I’ve been using the CeraVe hand and body moisturiser, I’m not sure if it ticks all the boxes for a cruelty free product, I usually rub it into my hands, arms and legs of a night after my shower and those parts stay hydrated till I get into the shower the next night because I can feel the smoothness on my legs when I go to dry myself, I’m not sure where I’d find this product here in Australia 🇦🇺 other than online and they may not ship to Australia 🇦🇺, many companies have stopped shipping internationally during this Pandamic unfortunately when I’ve looked up their website, hopefully it will change eventually.
    Cheers Janelle 😊

    • Thank you for commenting, Janelle! Yes To is an interesting brand, they’ve got a wide range of products and they’re all formulated with mostly natural ingredients, but for some reason I don’t ever hear anyone talk about their products! I look forward to trying more of their products in the future. I think they’ve probably got some other hidden gems. 🙂 That’s a good idea multi-tasking with your skincare products to rub the excess into your hands! CeraVe has some really good products, but unfortunately that company is not cruelty-free. You never know, that could change in the future. I hope! I just spoke to Ryan about Amazon’s international shipping and he said Amazon has an Australian website (sorry if you already knew that) that might make it easier for you to find some of the products I review. I’m not sure if this one would be available or not. I’m sure international shipping will pick back up eventually, but it certainly does feel like a lot of things related to the pandemic will never end.
