You've got petrol on your face

THE TRUTH ABOUT VASELINE.

Make sure you are sat down for this one, because we are about to hit your with some hard facts. Vaseline (AKA Petroleum Jelly) is a by product of the fuel industry - it is one of the by products. It is actually highly carcinogenic and the fuel companies have to pay to dispose of it. OR they can offload it to the beauty industry for next to nothing, where we will then slather it on our lips and body and we also find other petrol derivatives (paraffinum liquidum) blended together with water to make our 'expensive' face creams.

Is this good for our skin? Absolutely not. These ingredients actually act as a film, blocking the pores, causing spots and when you put petroleum jelly on your lips, it actually dries them out further, meaning you have to put more on to make them feel moisturised again. Vicious circle. 

This is why we are here to change this and make sure that the products you are putting on your face will actually be doing the magic you expect it to! Clean beauty is the way forward, and we are moving in the right direction. If you need any help choosing what products will be best for you and your skin type, don't hesitate to email us at care@thenicecream.co and we will help you get beautiful skin! Don't put petrol on your face.
