Smith’s Rosebud Salve


Smith’s Rosebud Salve is extremely helpful. If your lips get chapped often this product can help relieve your chapped lips and prevent your skin from getting wrinkled and dry.

Do you have children who get diaper rashes? Smith’s Rosebud salve can help you on that too. Do you absolutely hate blemishes? This product is sure to cure that huge problem of yours! Are you that person in your family who has to wash the dishes every night and your hands get really dry? I think I’m your guardian angel, because I’ve got the one and only Smith’s Rosebud Salve.

Do you love to paint your nails, but hate it when you take the nail polish off and all that is left are rough cuticles? Something that helps me is, again, Smith’s Rosebud Salve. I hate to put lotion on my hands and I’m sure you do too! So I use Smith’s Rosebud Salve on my hands and it keeps them moisturized for many hours and if you buy this I’m sure it will do the same for you.

Although Smith’s Rosebud Salve can do many helpful things for you there is something that is not good for you. It is something that happens in the process of making an ingredient in Smith’s Rosebud Salve, petrolatum. Petrolatum is an almost-solid made of a combination of hydrocarbons made from petroleum. One worry about petrolatum is that while it was made it has been contaminated by PAHS (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.) PAHS are found in waste water, dirt, and soil. If you are exposed to this it may put you in risk of developing breast cancer.

In New Zealand scientists Chandra, Peterson, Melich, Merrill, Bailey, Mellon-Kusibab, and Adler did a 2 week study on white New Zealand rabbits, miniature pigs, mice, and rats treated with petrolatum. The white rabbits suffered a seven day erythema, which means a reddening of the skin usually in patches. Only the rabbits skin got reddening, none of the other rats, mice, or the minipigs got it.

If after learning about the health risks of petrolatum you don’t like this product, then I have a solution. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is an alternative that I think that you would love. This product contains comfrey. Comfrey is an herb. Herbs are plants used in products to give flavor and scent. Something that is really good about Burt’s Bees products are they are all natural products because they use herbs instead of fragrance. You can buy Burt’s Beeswax Lip Balm at any drugstore such as: Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid and usually any other drugstores.
