Gasoline is a non petroleum alternative to conventional lubricants. It is now no longer necessary to use petroleum jelly during the tattoo process, or as an all purpose emollient. This product offers the same slip and glide as you're used to, with a honey scented mix of essential oils.

GASOLINE - Natural petroleum jelly, 500ml
Petroleum jelly sure is a handy product, and generally regarded as safe. It is however derived from petroleum - a toxic crude oil, which means it is neither sustainable nor eco-friendly. It has no moisturizing properties of its own, instead, acting as an impermeable barrier to the skin. Sure it will lock in whatever moisture is underneath it to give your skin the appearance of moisturized skin, but it will also lock in any dirt, sweat, or bacteria that exists. This barrier will also deter any added moisture or beneficial ingredients from other products to reach the skin.
Enter Gasoline, formulated to behave like Petroleum jelly but with all the added benefits of non toxic ingredients.
Avocado oil is an excellent source of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins and has been found to speed up wound healing and increase collagen metabolism.
Beeswax has anti-inflammatory properties that encourage the healing of wounds. It is also protective, helping form a barrier between the skin and the environment without clogging pores. Further, beeswax is high in vitamin A, which has been found to support cell reconstruction and health.
Add in some Vitamin E and essential oils, and you have a product that behaves like Petroleum jelly but actually penetrates the skin to start the skin cell regeneration process.
