A product containing medical grade lanolin is the best lipid mix for the skin's horny layer, skin doesn't need the lauric acid in coconut oil, it can utilise the saturated fatty acids and cholesterol in lanolin and does well with the same emollients as hair (fatty alcohols, cationic surfactants). Any occlusives including silicones can have some benefit for skin simply by forming a barrier against harsh sulphate or other anionic surfactants in shower gel.

I went fully sulphate free a couple of years ago, my cuticles and lips are way happier without commercial toothpaste and commercial hand wash respectively.
