    Avoiding Petrochemicals:

    Petrolatum (better known as petroleum jelly) and mineral oil are both petrochemicals. They have no nutritive benefit to the skin at all. They give a temporary perception of moisture as they sit on the surface of the skin instead of being absorbed. This creates a reliance on using the product because the moment the surface product is gone, the skin feels dehydrated again.

    Mineral oil has also been linked to:

    • Clogged pores
    • Trapping in toxins
    • Slowing skin cell growth
    • Disrupting normal hormone functioning
    • Robbing the body of magnesium and other vitamins
