    Comments about Multi-Purpose Un-Petroleum Jelly:

    This is a fantastic product! I had been using petroleum jelly since my little one was born and recently heard all about how bad petroleum is (should have guessed it!). This product works very well and I'm so happy to find an alternative that is safe for my baby's skin. It is one of very, very few products out there that has an excellent health rating! I do agree with one of the other reviewers, I wish there were a variety of sizes, particularly a travel size for the diaper bag.

      Comments about Multi-Purpose Un-Petroleum Jelly:

      Have used this product as a diaper rash preventive as well as for chapped and dry skin on my little one who is three months old. Not having introduced lotions to my son's skin yet, I've felt comfortable using this all natural product. I feel it is a bit over priced though, but that being said, a little goes a long way.

      Hard to get out of the tube

      By stargazer78

      from Woodbridge NJ

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Multi-Purpose Un-Petroleum Jelly:

      I liked the tube of vaseline I had from the hospital to put on the baby during diaper changes rather than the container because I would get vaseline all over my hands when trying to get all the way to the bottom. So when I saw this product, I opted for the tube version. Unfortunately, it is REALLY hard to squeeze out! The hole needs to be made bigger because the product is not very loose. Otherwise, it worked well to protect my baby from rash.

        This is not a lotion, it is what is says- like petroleum jelly but "un-petroleum". We use it as a diaper ointment and on dry, chapped skin.

            Hands down, best product of this kind I've tried so far. Love that it has no petroleum in it. I do wish they would allow the top to twist off as well as flip. I broke several. I might as well buy it but the case load, I use it all the time.

              Comments about Multi-Purpose Un-Petroleum Jelly:

              I LOVE this stuff! I used it on my daughter's eczema and it cleared it up as well as the medicine prescribed by the doctor without the scary ingredients in the prescription. We live in the desert and now I use it on the entire family for all dry areas and rough patches. Yes, it is thick and sticky upon immediate application, but how well it works totally negates any drawbacks. Also, I cannot find this stuff anywhere but diapers.com.

                I wanted to find a natural alternative to Vaseline, but didn't want to use a diaper cream at every diaper change. We have used Vaseline since he was born, and he's 14 months now. It has prevented him from having diaper rash. I found this and am hooked!!! Very smooth, not thick and sticky like Vaseline, but still coats, and it's natural. I like the big size, too, but would like to see smaller sizes for diaper bags.

                I use this on my baby as an all over moisturizer after bath. We like it because it is similiar to thick petroleum products with out the petrol! It is mainly castor oil which I would rather have her sucking on than other lotions. She has beautiful healthy skin. Little sticky but will absorb.

                    Can't believe all of the great reviews about this product. It smells awful, is greasy, thankfully doesn't last and it doesn't absorb well. Spend your money on a different lotion.

                      My 6mo son gets eczema with any little bit of dairy that I accidentally ingest- this stuff has been a lifesaver for his sensitive skin! I can apply it liberally up to twice a day and it really helps moisturize his skin and ease the eczema.

                      This is a great product. I was looking for an earth-friendly alternative to petroleum-based Vaseline petroleum jelly. This product works great and is made with environmentally responsible materials. I only wish that it came in a larger size.
