im all about natural and petroleum free products but recently my dd got a really bad allergy rash (from oranges) and exema all over her body.i tried everything and finally tried some zinc cream that i had lying around with a petroleum base. it helped so well when nothing else did (herbal ointments and all) today i went to the health food store to find some zinc cream with out petroleum and the woman there blasted me about using petroleum based products on my baby! and then tried to get me to buy a bunch of other things that i ididnt really want. i just wanted zinc cream!!! so anyways, long story short she said petroleum is cancer causing and toxic, which i sort of knew, but does anyone have any info on this subject?<br><br>

Have you done a search? I used to have sites but since our family knows it anyway, I deleted them. There is lots of info on the web.
