Vaseline® | Petroleum Jelly

By: Vaseline  06-Dec-2011

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 our 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 inside the skin itself.

Vaseline® | Lip Therapy

Our lips have an amazing ability to experience heightened sensations, allowing us to feel the slightest of touch and sense the environment around us. Sometimes the natural protective barrier can diminish, leaving it susceptible to dryness and chapping. Sun protection with SPF15 helps to protect you from the sun's harmful rays. The skin on our lips is different to the skin on our bodies.
