The chances are, that when the colder months of the year came when you were a child, your parents used a vapour chest rub to soothe away your winter discomforts. Fast forward to your own parenting journey and the odds are, yep you guessed it, it’s you who is now doing the same for your child!
With so many options in the marketplace, the ingredients contained should play a big part in the choice you make. Not all vapour rubs are created equally and when we were children, some of the more traditional vapour rubs that our parents would have used, or are still used today, contained ingredients like petrolatum, a refined derivative of petroleum (crude oil). Perhaps not something you want to apply to your baby’s skin.
