Which natural ingredient could efficiently replace Vaseline?

I have read great things about Cupuaçu butter and Shea butter. But what else could be use as a substitute? Thank you all! 😘

I think sunflower seed oil (but it’s important to buy one specifically meant for skincare - the one for cooking is made from a different type of sunflower seeds and has less linoleic acid- our skin loves linoleic acid). I use Shea butter as a lip balm (I also use Vaseline on my lips). I wouldn’t say it’s the same, Shea butter is definitely less occlusive - can be a good and a bad thing sometimes…

Hey yes! I agree,Shea Butter can actually clog pores but if there's very little percentage of them(some brands need to use it for texture) then it's fine!
