This is just like petroleum jelly....but it is NOT...it contains: castor seed oil , coconut oil, beeswax, hydrogenated castor oil, vitamin e....that's all. I bought this for my dry cheeks /rosacea...and it is intensely soothing if your skin is so dry that it hurts ....or your hands are cracking from dryness ( feet also) it can take a while to sink in , though ....depending on how much you put on. I use this at night...on hands and face. I wake up to even toned smooth skin! I love it... some may find this too heavy , though ....kinda like vaseline/petroleum jelly.It's great that its not an un-renewable resource with potential contaminates, and it lets your skin breathe.
Great alternative to petroleum. this is a bit thicker and harder to spread, but I think it lasts longer. I use this on my lips, eyes ~DOESNT STING LIKE VASELINE~, legs for strechmarks, hands for heavy duty cream. Can use it ANYWEAR, great to carry in purse for the winter.
Great as a chaptstick/lip balm/ lipgloss. Can mix minerals in with it to get color. I would like this in smaller tubes to easily apply on my lips though!
However it still should not be eaten because of the hydrogenated oil, but small amounts dont hurt.
I love this product, but it really only works amazing for very specific things. I would never apply this to my face (it's very, very thick, and oily and waxy). BUT, it does act as an amazing chap stick if your lips are very chapped.
tried this in October 2009 and before then i had an really didnt have to many skin problem just the once a month pmt breakout. I had moved to georgia and i think bcause of stress and humidity i got a couple pimples (which was strange for me) and not wanting to deal with that i saw a video by kandee johnson and she said she used Mychelle's Fruit cleanser and unpetroleum and her skin looks really good so i went online and ordered both of them i used this for about a week when i started to notice a series pimples which looked like rash i continued to use it for three more days until my mom told me that my faced looked bad. So i stopped using both things thinking that my skin would heal and go back....here it is august and my face is still looking bad i've been trying 9 months to get my skin back. Please be careful with this i dont know if it was the unpetroleum or the cleanser ( i think it was a combination of both) but i really regret ever using this stuff on my face. Works good on your lips though. Which is why i gave it a 2 instead of a 1
I really hate the idea of using petroleum products at all, and have avoided them as much as possible over the years, despite their widespread popularity and usage. If you think about what is in that jar, it makes smearing it all over yourself a whole lot less appealing.. in my opinion, anyway.
a vaseline substitute that works WITHOUT petroleum! It can literally be used for EVERYTHING..feet, lips, face, elbows, and even on cuts and scrapes.
I am overjoyed about this product and tell everyone I know about it. Try it, and you will be grateful, as I am.
I was hesitant to purchase because I thought it would be another Vaseline. Wrong! It give my lips excellent hydration and does not interfere with listick. Apply like Vaseline in areas that need special attention. Some girls on the boards use this all over their face and see amazing plumping effects, which I'm sure is due to it's moisturizing properties. I never loved Vaseline, used mostly Aquaphor. This is easier to blend and is not tacky at all. I immediatley saw the difference. Must be due to the absence of petroleum. Petroleum never did a thing for me, as it irritated my exzema on hands. Great and so inexpensive. Put a lil bit in an empty pot for you make up bag. So many useful purposes!
Bought this on sale at Wholefoods. It contains nothing but a blend of waxes and oils and no petroleum which is nice. I apply this to my lips, knees, and elbows. It has a thick consistency, but you only need to use a little bit. I noticed it takes a while to sink but once it does, my skin is left feeling velvety and moisturized and it stays that way for most of the day. Takes care of any bodily flakiness due to eczema or dryness and moisturizes cuticles. This makes a great addition to your medicine cabinet and it's a great healthy alternative to regular vaseline.
Great product and great, natural alternative to Vaseline. A bottle will last for ages but I always have one in my cabinet! I also love the fact that it IS a bottle and you don't have to stick your fingers in a jar.
This was a good product for someone who likes thick stuff. I didn't really find use to it and found that using other things worked better, like olive oil.
This is like Vaseline but made with natural ingredients. Lots of oils in it (another reviewer lists the ingredients below) and I agree, it is a thinner consistency than Vaseline. The same results though, so if you use petroleum products for different uses, this is the natural alternative.
Definitely helps with chapped lips, dry hands or extremities. The only store I could find this at was the nearest Whole Foods. Price was reasonable: around the $6 range and I'd definitely purchase again, more for the fall and winter months and for use at the office.
