THE DANGERS OF PETROLEUM JELLY
Petroleum jelly is basically a byproduct of the oil industry. It’s a leftover residue created during the refinery of crude oil. One of the main drawbacks of petroleum jelly fix is, that it disrupts the bodies process of elimination of toxins through the pores, potentially trapping them under the skin. Moreover, it creates a false sense or “feeling” of skin comfort & hydration while in fact it does nothing to nurture, heal or restore natural moisture to the skin
Truth be told, the fact is it stays on the skin but, while it is classified as non-comedogenic, it is also water-repellent & not water-soluble, making it difficult to cleanse from the skin. Even a minimal daily application can build up in the pores & attract dirt and bacteria, causing breakouts and skin irritation.
During the years, there have been many myths told about petroleum jelly fix in relationship to babies, such as it has healing effects & moisturizing effects in your baby`s skin or that Petroleum Jelly is a safe choice for me, because my mother & grandmother used it as well.
Wife’s tails, marketing ploys & unsubstantiated claims have no right on your Precious babies comfort & wellbeing.
