    The reason people say that it’s bad for your skin is because they think it clogs pores. However, this is not true, so go ahead and use it

    It isn’t bad unless you’re applying it to open pores. If you have a cold shower it will close your pores and then your skin will soak the jelly up rather than your open pores becoming blocked by it because it is a thick substance.

    If you enjoy the softness of petrleum jelly and are worried. then why not try baby oil? its just as good and soaks deeper into your skin

    Shandi, there’s a reason they call it petroleum jelly. It comes from the same sourcef they make engine oil for a car. Would I rub engine oil on myself. Likely not.
