Petrolatum Replacement - the best natural ingredient to use

Hi Everyone,

Looking for a petrolatum replacement to use. Looking for a replacement mainly for its texture, would love to have its barrier properties too but we shall see.
There are a number of waxes or oils which claim to be like petrolatum or white oil but I havent had the luxury to try them.

Any thoughts to whats good?

    A combination of beeswax (~5%) and castor oil (~95%) will give you a similar texture to petrolatum. The beeswax will offer some barrier properties.

    Grant Bioshine 5000 s or Viscoplast 3000 there are Vegetables based products and there are ideal replacement for Petrolatum. Please see 
    You Google both products there is plenty of data available
  • Centerchem's Petalatum and hydrogenated vegetable oil are good alternatives.
