Description Ingredients & Technical Information
 

This is an all natural, unique and proprietary formulation available only from TNS

All Natural No Petroleum Gellie is free from petrochemicals and hydrocarbons. It contains only all natural Castor and is the perfect alternative to Petroleum Jelly.

We have formulated this product to be slightly thicker than a petroleum base so that you can add from 1-5% additional oils to make this product uniquely yours.

This can be used as a base for lip balms, lip gloss, pomades, creams, salves and lotions.

So, what is wrong with Petroleum Jelly?

Petrolatum’s only listed concern is possible contamination from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). PAHs are common contaminants in petrolatum. FDA restricts petrolatum in food to no more than 10 parts per million, and requires petrolatum used in food packaging or drugs to meet impurity restrictions for PAHs.

PAHs are linked to cancer (by 10 sources, including the EPA), reproductive/developmental toxicity (by the EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory, among other sources), endocrine disruption, persistence and bioaccumulation. They are banned for use in cosmetics in Europe and Canada.

In the United States, no requirement for refinement applies for petrolatum in personal care products. Hopefully most manufacturers likely choose refined petrolatum low in PAHs, but there is no guarantee.

Some product labels include the term “skin protectant” in parentheses after the petrolatum listing, an indication that the petrolatum has been refined and meets FDA requirements for drug applications. But in most cases a consumer buying a product containing petrolatum has no way of knowing if the ingredient is low in carcinogenic PAHs or not.

Petroleum Jelly
Petroleum jelly ingredients are nothing but a mixture of hydrocarbons. Petroleum jelly is insoluble in water and does not get oxidized when exposed to air. Due to many of these 'friendly' properties, petroleum jelly is widely recognized as 'the best' solution for many personal care applications like moisturizers, baby oils, lotions and hair care products.

Petroleum Jelly Side Effects
Several long term side effects of petroleum jelly have been observed of late. The main reason behind this can be the fact that petroleum jelly is used in a large amount on a regular basis, by many people. The layer of petroleum jelly that we keep on adding over the skin may protect the skin but also restricts the pours of the skin from letting the toxins out.

This makes the secretion of all the toxins and unwanted substances to form a layer under the actual layer of petroleum jelly. The whole process results into several skin disorders and leads to dandruff, acne, dryness of the skin and hair and skin irritation. It is always strictly advised to use petroleum jelly for only external purposes as on negligence there can be several side effects of petroleum jelly like abdominal pain, diarrhea, shortness of breath, coughing, irritation of nose, skin and eyes and other such complications.

The biggest side effect of petroleum jelly is said to be the risk of breast cancer. There are several substances that contaminate the petroleum jelly, the biggest culprit can be named as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or the PAHs. Along with the PAHs, other petroleum jelly ingredients namely, 1,3-butadiene and ethylene oxide have connections with the mammary tumors, in short breast cancer.

These ingredients are also found in one of the 15 various products available in the market including, lipsticks and baby lotions. It is strictly advised to not consume the petroleum jelly, internally. Due to its constant use, many of the consumers observe various side effects of petroleum jelly. To avoid the same, use of petroleum jelly in cosmetics is banned in many nations including the EU.

Checking whether the beauty products, baby products and hair care products that we are using are made using natural oils and substances is the first step. Instead of petroleum jelly, we can also use several other natural and healthy petroleum jelly substitutes.. This will surely help us to stay away from the petroleum jelly side effects.
