Vaseline original pure petroleum jelly
Ideal for keeping skin healthy and protected from the elements
Effective emollient for skin and lips
A mixture of mineral oils, paraffin and microcrystalline waxes
Vaseline petroleum jelly is a mixture of mineral oils, paraffin and microcrystalline waxes that, when blended together; create something remarkable – a smooth jelly that has a melting point just above body temperature. The result – it literally melts into skin, flowing into the spaces between cells and the gaps in Vaseline lipid barrier. Once there, it re-solidifies, locking itself in place. Vaseline petroleum jelly serves two functions: first it helps keep the outside world out – it protects skin from the effects of weather and exposure. Second, it acts like a sealant to help keep the inside world in – it forms an occlusive barrier to the natural water loss of our skin. So skin that is dry and chapped is protected from drying elements, enabling skin-softening moisture to build up naturally from within the skin.
