Don't use products that contain mineral oil or any by-product such as petroleum jelly.
I know, I know...many will say my grandma and great-grandma used it so why shouldn't I? I say lets compare your lifestyle to theirs...shall we:
I bet your now asking what does that have to do with mineral oil. Mineral oil is a chemical that our bodies can NOT use. Back in the day our ancestors exercised a lot allowing them to sweat away toxins more rapidly. They also ate medicinal herbs, fresh greens and fruits that helped to restore their bodies.
"Our food today is laden with chemicals... gmo fruits and vegetables actually harm our body"
Mineral oil acts as a barrier when you rub it on your skin. Your body cannot absorb it, so much of it just sits on your skin suffocating it and drying it out even more. That's why it's important for those who suffer with excessive dry skin to quit using products that contain mineral oil and its by-products. I have listed below several by-products of mineral oil, please check the ingredients on your products to see if one of these names listed is on it. If so, throw it away! Buy products that are natural and safe such as Jamion PSC (shameless plug...lol).
