I always knew that Vaseline was a by-product of the oil refining process, but I didn’t realise it was filtered through bone char (that’s roasted animal bones to me and you), before it was put on the shelves. And there’s controversy over its possible carcinogenic properties. Bleugh! I’ve been putting this stuff on my lips as lip balm for about 15 years. Time to find a nicer product, maybe something like Badger lip balm. Yum.
