Petroleum Jelly – the ingredient you don’t need
Seasonal changes and stressful lifestyles bring up skin issues like dryness, flakiness, chapping, rash and sensitivity. Pollution and environmental allergens also trigger a variety of flu like symptoms from stuffy nose, sneezing, headaches and congestion. Be it the need to fight winter dryness, or soothe sundry body aches and pains, products with petroleum jelly have made their way into our lives.
Generally, petroleum jelly is used as lip and skin moisturizers to heal cuts and small scraps, as bases for pain relief balms, cold relief rubs and in many skin cremes.
