Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly is made of triple-purified petroleum Jelly which is a blend of mineral oils and waxes. Discovered by Robert Chesebrough in 1859, Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly has had a long and dynamic history of keeping skin protected which you can read about HERE.
What are the benefits of Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly?
Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly works by creating a sealing barrier between cells in dry or damaged skin which locks in moisture and speeds up your skin’s natural recovery process, helping it to repair itself. Its occlusive function allows it to protect dry skin, cracked skin, minor cuts, scraps, and burns. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines. Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly can also be used to protect your skin and lips against dryness and chapping.
How is Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly different than other petroleum jelly products?
Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly is the original wonder jelly. For over 140 years, it has been helping to keep skin healthy and looking beautiful. Vaseline® uses the highest quality ingredients and a proprietary triple purification process involving distillation, de-aeration, and filtration. This ensures that every jar is completely pure with a smooth consistency unlike many of the imitation brands which do not have the same level of stringency around quality.
If Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly is made from petroleum, is it safe for me? My child?
Yes, it is safe for the whole family. While derived from petroleum, Vaseline® ensures the safety of its jelly by putting it through a triple purification process. This process removes impurities, resulting in a jelly that is non-irritating and hypo-allergenic.
Will Vaseline® Jelly clog my pores?
No, it will not. Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly is non-comedogenic, which means it will not clog pores, irritate your skin, or cause acne.
What makes Vaseline® Intensive Care™ lotions different from other brands?
Only Vaseline® Intensive Care™ lotions are infused with rich moisturisers and triple-purified micro-droplets of Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly. This fast-absorbing, non greasy formulation absorbs deeply to help restore the appearance of dry skin.
What external factors cause my skin to dry?
Dry skin can be caused by many factors such as weather, environment, some soaps and detergents, diet, or central heating and cooling. The natural oils found in your skin can be removed through normal activities throughout the day, stripping the natural moisture protection your skin needs to stay healthy. Without the necessary moisture, your skin’s protective barrier degrades, which allows even more moisture to escape.
Why should I moisturise daily?
Healthy skin is made up of nearly 90% water, which gives your skin the strength and flexibility to protect your body. Over the course of the day your body loses about a pint of water. External factors like the ones listed above exacerbate the loss of water through your skin by breaking down your natural moisture protection. Vaseline® lotions replenish the necessary moisture and nutrients and lock in moisture needed to help keep your skin healthy and beautiful every day.
