CLOSED Giveaway: Waxelene The Organic Alternative to Petroleum Jelly

Waxelene
Waxelene is the petroleum jelly alternative.

NO petroleum. Only natural & organic ingredients.
Moisturize, protect, and soothe skin all in one!


Babies have the most beautiful skin, but even they have occasional skin challenges. Here are a few ways Waxelene can benefit your baby, from his soft fuzzy head to her cute little toes.

Start at the top. Almost every baby experiences cradle cap at least once in his infancy. Cradle cap, or in medical terms infantile or neonatal seborrheic dermatitis, is a common inflammatory skin condition that causes flaky, white to yellowish scales to form on the scalp. It’s not usually itchy and babies don’t seem to be bothered by it, but you might prefer not to look at it. Rub a small amount of Waxelene into the affected area before you put baby to bed. Wipe off any excess Waxelene with a towel so there is only a thin layer. The softened scales should fall off during the night or be easily
brushed off in the morning. Cradle cap can be genetic so if the problem continues or worsens consult a physician.

No more tears. You try to be careful when you’re washing your baby’s hair to keep the shampoo out of her eyes, but since babies can’t close their eyes on command and the water and shampoo must flow downwards, it’s hard. Next time, apply a generous portion of Waxelene to your baby’s eyebrows. It will act as a shield to keep the shampoo from running down into her eyes. The Waxelene can be wiped off at the end of bath time.

Keep their noses happy. Between crying, colds and allergies, toddlers always seem to have runny noses. And you know what happens to an area when you combine constant exposure to moisture and wipe after wipe after wipe… those tiny nostrils get red and irritated. Place a little Waxelene on his nose to soothe the discomfort, moisturize the skin, and help protect the area from further irritation.

Pay them a little lip service. Everyone gets chapped lips, and for years you have probably used petroleum jelly when lip balm just wasn’t enough. But the smell, greasy consistency, and the fact that it shares its origins with the fuel in your gas tank may have made you think twice before putting it on your lips and especially your baby’s lips! With Waxelene you get all of the benefits of petroleum jelly – plus it’s made with natural and organic ingredients like vitamin E and rosemary that actually nurture skin cells. With its smooth texture and healthy formula you won’t mind using Waxelene every day so you can prevent dry lips instead of waiting to treat them when your lip balm fails you. And you’ll feel good about using it on baby too!

Finish at the bottom. Nothing’s worse than having a baby cry because their bottom is sore. You can help prevent and sooth irritated skin from diaper rash with Waxelene. Simply use it every time you change a diaper to form a protective layer on your baby’s bottom. It keeps moisture out so an existing rash can recover, and helps stop new rashes from developing in the first place.

Everything in between. Waxelene is safe to use on your baby for dry or irritated skin anywhere it may appear. Since Waxelene has been aerated it won’t clog pores, so you can use it on every part of your baby’s body – and on yours too!

Waxelene is the eco-friendly alternative to petroleum jelly. It has the same protective, waterproofing, moisturizing and soothing properties that doctors love, but contains no petroleum or hydrogenated oils. Waxelene’s ingredients include natural beeswax and oils like vitamin E and organic rosemary which soak in and nurture skin cells. Waxelene’s patent-pending aeration process gives it a silky smooth texture that won’t clog pores. Committed to the environment and healthy living, the makers of Waxelene endeavor to become more sustainable every day. From using natural and organic ingredients, to packaging in recyclable glass jars (no plastic!), to implementing energy-efficient practices, Waxelene is striving to do its part to prepare for a petroleum-free future.
