We got an email from a reader named Roldana who wanted to know about petrolatum. Here is a portion of her email.
I read your Cerave facial cream review and I wanted to know your thoughts on petrolatum in facial cream products. This ingredient has a bad reputation, it seems....
There are a few hot-topic skin care ingredients that consumers are well aware of due to so much online information surrounding them, but sometimes it's hard to know what to believe what information is correct. We knew we wanted to take this question to a Dermatologist.
We sent Roldana's question to Dr. Helen Torok, Medical Director at Trillium Creek Dermatology, and she was happy to respond with her thoughts on petroletum. Read her thoughts on Petrolatum and see if she recommends it to her clients.
