Hi.  You can use coconut oil for dry skin.  It is completely safe. It does not make skin fair or dark. You can apply to the skin immediately after bathing to retain the moisture.  Don't dry the child  fully with towel after bath.  Instead let some wetness be there before you apply the oil. You can try Aloegrace skin cream or Dermadew Aloe lotion if you want any branded one. But Coconut oil is good enough. Use mild soaps for bathing like Dove.  Very small babies less than a year can use soap like Aloegrace or Tedibar.
