Vaseline is a brand of petroleum jelly-based products owned by Anglo-Dutch company Unilever. Products include plain petroleum jelly and a selection of skin creams, soaps, lotions, cleansers, and deodorants.
Vaseline Jelly is made of 100% pure petroleum jelly which is a blend of mineral oils and waxes. Discovered by Robert Chesebrough in 1859, Vaseline Jelly has had a long and dynamic history of keeping skin protected. The first known reference to the name Vaseline was the inventor of petroleum jelly, Robert Chesebrough in his U.S. patent for the process of making petroleum jelly (U.S. Patent 127,568) in 1872.
Vaseline 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 heal from within. Its occlusive function allows it to protect dry skin, cracked skin, minor cuts, scrapes, and burns. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines. Vaseline Jelly can also be used to protect your skin and lips against dryness and chapping.
Vaseline was made by the Chesebrough Manufacturing Company until the company was purchased by Unilever in 1987 and 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. Vaseline Jelly Original is recommended by dermatologists and recognized by the National Eczema Association as a suitable choice for patients with eczema and other sensitive skin conditions.
