Petrolatum, or Petroleum Jelly, has long been a standby in cosmetic formulations with lip balms, chest rubs, and dozens of other products we use almost daily including it as a main ingredient. Recent health concerns regarding Petroleum Jelly are due almost entirely to the possible inclusion of harmful PAH's (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) in the Jelly. This harmful group of chemicals has been found present in low quality, improperly refined Petroleum Jelly and has unfortunately tainted the reputation of this incredibly versatile product. Our Petrolatum is sourced from the most reputable sources in the country and is refined under the strictest guidelines to ensure the purity we require.You can rest assured that our Petroleum Jelly is safe and pure enough to be used in a wide variety of Personal Care applications.

Petroleum Jelly can improve certain cosmetic products, acting as an emollient and a thickener, increasing the viscosity of creams, ointments, and lotions when their composition is too runny.
It also stabilizes cosmetics that come in stick-form (like lipstick) and increases these products’ melting points, making for a more stable product. It helps products like lipstick and deodorant keep their shape and not melt or crumble apart.
In addition, It is commonly used in cosmetics for its ability to help form emulsions by reducing surface tension of the substances that are to be emulsified. It also help other ingredients dissolve in solvents where they would otherwise not normally dissolve. Petroleum Jelly has a role in the production of acne products, deodorant sticks, anti-dandruff shampoos and other types of skin care products.
