Is vaseline vegetarian?

Update:

I'm talking about the lip therapy, the one with petrolium jelly. Thanks for all the answers.

    Vaseline white petroleum jelly is processed through bone char filters. Just as some people would avoid certain white cane sugars for that reason, they might also avoid using that product. They're also listed as a company that tests on animals. I also recommend looking for a botanical product rather than a petroleum-based product for your skin.

    of course vaseline is vegetarian

    It is vegan, but company who make it test on animals. Instead, try the 'little pink/green/blue tins' from superdrug, they are around £1, are vegan, and are not tested on animals (it says so, and BUAV approved (:

    Yes, it doesn't contain any blubber like they do in cosmetics like lipstick and all of that.

    as far as i know yes, but, the fact that it is actually the 'oil' made of decaying organic matter over thousands of years may bother some, tho its disgusting, its still natural ;-)
