I don’t know about you but I’ve used those tubs of Vaseline for years. From moisturizing my dry, rough feet to softening my unsmoothed elbow and I even applied it to my dry, chapped lips.
But not until I finally learned that Vaseline is made from by-products of the petroleum to make gasoline. The Vaseline company describes its petroleum jelly product as “a mixture of mineral oils, paraffin and microcrystalline waxes that literally melts into skin, flowing into the spaces between cells and the gaps in our lipid barrier. Once there, it re-solidifies, locking itself in place.
The more that I’ve researched safe skin care products, the more freaked out I get! So I found a homemade Vaseline recipe that is so easy and simple to use sans the nasty chemicals.
