Why should I be concerned about a Petroleum based product?
Petroleum and mineral oil are found in most commercial creams including commercial diaper ointments. They are by-products of the petroleum industry and are not derived from natural sources.
They have a tendency to dissolve the skinâs own natural oils and thereby increase dehydration and clogging the pores. It does not allow oxygen to penetrate into the skin trapping toxins, and not allowing them to escape. Oxygenation is an essential element in helping to promote healing of the skin.
