Vaseline Petroleum JellyPetroleum Jelly Information

Petroleum jelly is a topical ointment that has been used for a variety of ailments and conditions for generations.

Once seen as a 'cure-all', petroleum jelly was believed to treat chest colds, rashes, fungal infections, nose bleeds, nappy rash, heal wounds and more. We now know that most of these claims are a little over-enthusiastic, but that has done little to stop petroleum jelly becoming a household staple.

Now commonly used to moisturise and protect the skin, petroleum jelly is one of the most effective moisturisers available (it decreases transepidermal moisture loss by 98%). It helps in a variety of conditions where drying, cracking or irritation of the skin is a problems (eczema, atopic dermatitis, nappy rash, chapped lips) or where the skin needs to be shielded from external irritants.

Petroleum jelly is also routinely used as a lubricant, helping ease conditions such as chafing, anal fissure and haemorrhoids (piles). It can also be used as a personal lubricant for sexual intercourse (although it is not suitable for use with condoms).

Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

Vaseline is perhaps the best-known brand of petroleum jelly. It has been a staple of bathroom cabinets, first aid kits and sports bags for years.
