WHAT ARE PETROCHEMICALS?
Petrochemicals are manufactured from crude petroleum, one of the most common petrochemcials found in skin care
products is petrolatum, also known as petroleum jelly.
WHY SHOULD PETROLEUM JELLY SHOULD BE AVOIDED?
• It is listed as a probable human carcinogen by the European Union (EU)
• It is banned in EU cosmetics (unless very specific purification standards are met)
• It is commonly contaminated with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are strongly linked to a wide
variety of detrimental diseases
• It tends to interfere with the body’s own natural moisturising mechanism, leading to dry skin and chapping

My personal thought and experience:
When I received this product, I immediately feel that the packaging is a bit manly. It’s in a rubberized black tube. The packaging is handy, it’s lightweight and it’s easy to put this on my bag. The texture of this product is something that I like; it’s oily and it’s very moisturizing for the lips. My lips are tend to be dry most of the time and after wearing this for a week, I really see the result. My lips are much more moisturized and I love how this lip product moisturize my lip; it doesn’t peel my lip and it has a decent amount of shine. Other than my lip, I also use this to moisturize my dry cuticle. I haven’t see much improvement this product does to my cuticle but I hope I will see more in the next few days. The smell of this product is just fine. It’s not strong yet still has a slight papaya scent. I don’t ming paying $14.90 for this 25gr of product. The quality and the quantity of this product worth the price 🙂
