12 Natural Alternatives to Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly Alternative)

Why put a byproduct of the petroleum industry on your skin when there are safer, better natural alternatives available? There are plenty of articles floating on web on just how toxic petroleum jelly is (some insist it can cause cancer due to contamination with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHS)) if you do a quick Google search. It’s no longer 1957 and we do not need to use junk anymore. There are gorgeous products ranging from affordable to luxury made by eco-conscious and passionate brands on a mission to create truly healthy products. Below are multi-purpose balms or salves using all-natural and organic formulations designed to be a cure-all for cuts, bruises, scrapes, rashes and dryness. Read on for my favorite petroleum jelly alternatives.
