I absolutely love, love, love Alba Un-Petroleum multi-purpose jelly. This has been a life saver for me and my family. We all have severe eczema and sensitive skin. Before I found, Alba, I had tried endless creams, lotions, moisturizers, both prescription strength and over the counter but nothing really helped our skin. I was so desperate to find an all natural product. I must admit that I was guilty of using vaseline since it was the only product that helped locked it the moisture for our extremely dry and itchy skin. I was skeptical at first when I first started using this product but I soon came to love it. It is definitely gentle on sensitive skin and helps soothe and protect it. It is not for those how are looking for a light moisturizer. This product is very thick and acts as a barrier to help lock in the moisture into your skin. I love how it is all natural. Which is my main concern. If you have been using vaseline, I urge to to give it a try. Your life will be forever changed. You will also have that peace of mind that you are using an all natural product this both good for you and the environment. Scent Does not really have a scent. Absorption Able to absorb protect. Effectiveness Soothes and moisturizes extremely dry and sensitive skin.
