Tattoo Aftercare ingredient help

I have a tattoo healing product that has the following ingredients:
1. Petroleum Jelly
2. Lanolin
3. Vitamin E Oil 
4. Mineral Oil
5. Lavender Essential Oil

I was wondering if the Petroleum jelly could be substituted for any of these ingredients:
Olive Oil
Cocoa Butter
Wheat Germ Oil
Tocopheryl Acetate 
Lavender Oil
Sunflower Oil
Rosemary Extract
D&C Green 6

Any thought or ideas are appreciated.


  • You could make the simplest formula and remove everything but the vitamin e oil!  I have always used straight vit e on mine and they heal perfectly! Or use the one you already have made.

    If you are not sure if you can replace petroleum jelly with rosemary extract or D&C Green 6, then perhaps you should study more about your ingredients first and not experiment with a complicated formula(especially  on a fresh tattoo to see if it works! ) I’m not an expert by any means. Just suggesting that if you did a little research on your own first, you would probably get more meaningful input from some of the talented chemists here!
