Is it okay to put organic coconut oil on the removal site?

I had my first removal session yesterday on my hand. I'm in nursing school and washing my hands constantly dries them out. I apply coconut oil a couple times a day because my skin cracks so easily. would a thin layer be okay for the removal site?

Coconut oil

I would recommend using Aquaphor. However, I would ask your provider to see if they are comfortable with you using coconut oil.
