My husband uses "Hemp Hand Protector" from The Body Shop and swears by the stuff. (Yes, it's made from hemp and smells like the real thing!) I bought it for him a few years ago and it heals his cracked knuckles and the finger splits at the tips of his fingers. He works as a truck driver-delivery person handling cardboard boxes which are very tough on the hands. The cold weather and dry humidity add to the problem, too.
My daughter uses Vitamin E cream from Sams. She is allergic to aloe and finds the e cream works well.
