Beeswax - A Natural Product vs Petroleum Jelly

Originally, petroleum jelly was found coating the bottom of oil rigs in the 1800s. It’s a by-product of oil production, which means it’s unsustainable, and some of the components removed from petroleum jelly in the refining process are carcinogenic. Most importantly, when applied to the skin, it creates a water-repellent barrier that clogs your pores and seals in the dirt. It keeps moisture in the skin, but doesn’t actually have any moisturising properties.
