(NaturalNews) Petroleum jelly can be found in about every other bathroom cabinet in the US, but dermatologists who really know what they're doing, like the holistic ones, warn against it. A byproduct of the oil industry, petroleum can suffocate pores, aggravate acne and even cause a rare form of pneumonia, if inhaled. Vaseline is just a highly refined version of petroleum jelly, so it may contain less of the cancer-causing chemicals that other similar and cheaper products contain, but should you accept the lesser of evils when you don't have to accept them at all?

Your skin is your largest organ, and it eats anything you put on it. You should be quenching your skin with organic food oils rather than industrial lubricants. Would you eat petroleum jelly? Have you considered hemp seed oil, aloe, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter or olive oil? It's tricky with petroleum jelly, because the immediate feel is that your skin is hydrated, but in reality you're sealing in dirt and bacteria, and preventing your body from sweating out toxins.

Millions of Americans coat their babies with crude oil

Ever noticed how cheap chap sticks and lip glosses become addictive and your problem persists? Petroleum products actually create a barrier that suffocates the skin cells, preventing them from breathing. That's because petrolatum repels moisture. If you search the web, you'll find plenty of conflicting information, because the big corporations pay trolls to post misinformation everywhere. Petrolatum products are simply byproducts of the processing of crude oil into gasoline, so don't be misled. Mineral oil and baby oil are virtually the same thing -- the only difference is that baby oil smells like fragrances. Would you drink mineral oil or put it in your baby's bottle? (

Vaseline-intensive care - let the toxins begin!

American advertising is really good at making people think that certain products are good for you and so popular that so many people couldn't be wrong. Commercials for Vaseline date back to the early 1980s and might give you that warm, fuzzy feeling, but soaking your skin with petroleum locks in more than "moisture" -- it locks in toxins. (

So what's the ultimate "price you pay" for carelessness? A few years ago, Dr. Oz did a segment on "magic potions" and the "price of beauty." He talked about 120 different chemicals that people use on their skin that can lead to cancer. Many "magic potions" purport to eliminate wrinkles or penetrate deep into your skin. This means, if it contains chemicals, that it has a greater potential to cause problems.

Johnson & Toxin - are you familiar with their products?

In order to fool the masses, many skin care products "plump up the skin" by inflaming it, which breaks down collagen. Many lip glosses that provide shine do so with petroleum jelly. Put that on your lips and you end up eating it. After one decade, you could have consumed about seven pounds of a gasoline constituent. Women with breast cancer have TWICE the levels of HYDROCARBONS (substances found in petroleum jelly) in their breasts as women who have not had breast cancer. Go figure! Never eat (don't put them on your skin) mineral oil or petroleum jelly. You could be causing allergies instead of being sensitive to them. Watch out for sunscreens with petroleum too. Find organic zinc for sunscreens and check out hemp seed oil (has nothing to do with pot, by the way).

Beware of any products sold by Johnson & Toxin (Johnson & Johnson). This mega-corporation sells carcinogens at cheap prices and touts them as healthy on commercials. You could be increasing your baby's risk of asthma and other respiratory disorders. ( Some products, like baby shampoo, even contain formaldehyde, the chemical used to embalm dead people. Plus, many baby powders contain talc and other carcinogenic ingredients. Remember, if you can't eat it, don't put it on yourself or your baby's skin. Get smart. Do the homework and be careful.
