As a dude, do you know how bad petroleum jelly is for your skin? Of course not, why would you? You’re a dude. I had absolutely no idea, either.
The most egregious of all is that before it’s refined, petroleum jelly includes carcinogenic compounds. What’s a carcinogen? A substance capable of causing cancer in living tissue.
Carcinogens do not cause cancer in every case, all the time. But why are we so cavalier about using petroleum jelly if we know the potential exists?
Petroleum jelly was originally created for the purpose of coating the bottom of oil rigs in 1859. You heard right friend; it was literally made to help streamline vessels traveling in the ocean, not the vessel of your body.
Rather than actually healing your skin, it creates the illusion of moisturized, hydrated skin, by creating a barrier and sealing the skin so that moisture cannot leave. So really, it functions as a water-repellent while suffocating your pores.
Waxelene is the anti-petroleum jelly.
Launched in 2010, Waxelene all-natural and is created with only 4 ingredients – beeswax, organic soy oil, vitamin e oil and organic rosemary oil. The raw ingredients are obtained from certified organic, non-GMO suppliers. It can be used in all the ways that you would traditionally use petroleum jelly on your skin.
The first thing I noticed was the texture. It has a soft, rich, creamy texture that goes on clear and smooth via the jar or the tube. Once applied, it legitimately feels wholesome and healing. As a person with very dry skin, I only had to apply Waxelene once per use. It protects skin for hours and does not have the greasy texture of Vaseline.
It’s also equally effective as a lip balm. Rather than using petroleum jelly or Carmex and it’s harsh chemical mixture, Waxelene actively heals the skin.
It’s also so versatile, you can use it in over 100 ways. From everything to removing chewing gum to blocking ant holes check out this list of alternative uses.
The woman in your life will also dig the product. Used by celebrities Heidi Klum and Halle Berry, it’s a less harsh way to remove eye or face make-up that actually replenishes the skin, not just strips it down.
At best, petroleum jelly literally does nothing: It provides no nourishment and is a temporary solution to dry skin. At worst, the risks associated with carcinogens just aren’t worth it.

NASCAR driver Cole Whitt will pilot the Premium Motorsports No. 98 in the 2016 season with ongoing support from Speed Stick. We spent the weekend with Cole and the Speed Stick team at last year’s Talladega 500, and again at the Brickyard 500 in Indianapolis where Cole explained what a day in the life of a NASCAR driver is like.
“I’m really excited and grateful for the opportunity to go racing with Premium Motorsports and continue my relationship with Speed Stick,” Whitt said.
Speed Stick® is also on board to support Whitt this NASCAR season. “Cole Whitt continues to embody the traits that we champion at Speed Stick®,” said Bill Van de Graaf, Vice President and General Manager, U.S. Personal Care, Colgate-Palmolive.
“In the last two years, he has impressed fans, teammates and adversaries by continuously stepping up in high-pressure situations. Achieving dreams takes courage when it counts and the Speed Stick® brand is excited to be at Cole’s side as he reaches for new heights.”
Known for its line of high-performing antiperspirants and deodorants, Speed Stick® previously sponsored Cole during his rookie and sophomore years and connected with fans by documenting the driver’s first race at the Daytona 500 through a unique, online video series.
