Collection: Vaseline Alternatives


How does Nutroleum offer unsurpassed protection?

Nutroleum™ "green" jelly, is an oil-free, all natural alternative to petroleum jelly—which makes it great for use as a lip balm, preventing diaper rash, treating dry skin, or in any other application where you currently use petroleum jelly. Made with food grade edible ingredients only, it doesn't contain any harmful chemicals. Nutroleum™ is lightweight and non-greasy, so it goes on effortlessly.

What are the health benefits of Nutroleum?

Nutroleum is 100% Petroleum Free - No 3rd Rock product provides any petroleum based product – we use organic kosher vegetable derived glycerin and a glycerin derived gel in order to get the properties associated with petroleum jelly.

Nutroleum Prevents and Heals Dry Skin - By using vegetable glycerin we provide a humectant which is a substance that absorbs moisture from the air and onto and into your skin. Water is the ultimate moisturizer – not oils which clog pores and keep water out.

Nutroleum is Great for Lips - Lips need water too – not oils or waxes that prevent water from being absorbed onto your lips.

What is the science behind Nutroleum?


US 8,557,264

At 3rd Rock, we have developed patented alternatives to petroleum based products by using organic Kosher vegetable glycerin and plant derived food grade edible emulsifiers. This combination differs greatly from any other known alternatives to petroleum jelly. While you may not want to ingest our products they are safe for children and infants. Our water-resistant products use high altitude beeswax with propolis and in some cases orange peel wax. We know of at least 2 products that are petroleum free jellies and we have reviewed these to give our customers a clear and accurate comparison.

That’s the 3rd Rock advantage!
