Basic Info

What is Petrolatum?

Petrolatum(Vaseline) is a petroleum grease made by mixing residual wax paste with lubricating oil and then refining it. It is an important lubricant for medicine, daily chemicals, fine chemical raw materials and precision instruments. my country’s petroleum jelly products are mainly concentrated on medical petroleum jelly, which is divided into two types: medical white petroleum jelly and medical yellow petroleum jelly. Medical petroleum jelly is mainly used to prepare ointments, skin protection ointments and cosmetic raw materials. It can also be used as anti-rust lubricating materials for medical equipment and precision instruments.

White or slightly yellow homogeneous paste, almost odorless and tasteless, is a mixture of liquid and solid paraffin hydrocarbons. The relative density is 0.815~0.830, the viscosity is 0.01~0.02Pa·s (100℃), the flash point is greater than 190℃ (open type), and the dropping point is about 37~54℃. Easily soluble in ether, petroleum ether, various fatty oils, benzene, carbon disulfide, chloroform and turpentine, insoluble in ethanol and almost insoluble in water. It becomes a transparent liquid when heated and can fluoresce in the dark after being irradiated with ultraviolet rays.

According to the scope of use and production requirements, Vaseline is now roughly divided into ordinary Vaseline, industrial Vaseline, capacitor Vaseline, cosmetic Vaseline, medical Vaseline, food grade Vaseline, etc. For example, ordinary petroleum jelly is suitable for preparing various lubricants and can be used for furniture maintenance; industrial petroleum jelly is often used for rust prevention and lubrication of metal devices and general mechanical parts; and cosmetic petroleum jelly and medical petroleum jelly are the products that everyone is most concerned about.

Vaseline Uses

  1. Makeup removal
    Although there are special makeup remover products, we forget to bring them when we go out. Vaseline can also help us in emergencies. Apply Vaseline to the makeup area of the face and massage it for 10 seconds. Wipe it off with a makeup remover, and then wash it again with facial cleanser. You can also wash your face clean.
  2. Remove blackheads
    Blackheads on the face are hidden under the pores. Vaseline melts fat, traps dirt, and best of all, doesn’t irritate your skin. Apply a thick layer of Vaseline to the blackheads, cover with plastic wrap, and wash off after a quarter of an hour. However, this deep cleaning method should only be used occasionally.
  3. Relieve eye wrinkles
    Eye wrinkles in young women are mostly caused by dryness and lack of water. Adding a layer of Vaseline after applying lotion can enhance the moisturizing effect. Washing it off after a while can better reduce eye wrinkles.
  4. Lip mask
    Vaseline can be used as a lip mask. Apply it to your mouth and hold it with a hot towel for a while. Some cuticles will also peel off during cleaning. Long-term persistence can reduce the wrinkles on the lips, and lipstick can make them more beautiful.
  5. Protect eyelashes
    For girls who often curl their eyelashes, applying mascara can easily cause eyelashes to be damaged and fall off. After removing makeup, apply Vaseline on the root of the eyelashes to make the eyelashes longer and thicker and protect the eyelashes.
  6. Protect nails
    Vaseline can make nails grow healthily, and it can also be used to soften hangnails. Vaseline adds nutrients to nails and makes them look shiny and beautiful.

Application of Vaseline

With the development of China’s economy, the acceleration of people’s pace of life and the increase of work pressure, people’s demand for medical care and cosmetics has gradually increased. Therefore, the domestic market demand for high-quality pharmaceutical grade and cosmetic grade Vaseline is also increasing.

In recent years, medical petroleum jelly is often used in ear surgery. Medical Vaseline is used as a lubricant. In otological surgery, since the surgical incisions in front of or behind the ears are close to the hairline, loose hair will affect the disinfection effect, surgical operation and cause surgical infection. Therefore, apply it on the loose hair before surgery. Vaseline, comb back to make it docile. Vaseline has a wide source, few impurities, good hair styling effect, tight fit, not easy to loosen, easy to operate, saves time, economical and affordable, and patients are happy to accept it.

Diarrhea can easily lead to perianal skin redness, swelling, infection, ulceration, exudation, and local pain. Vaseline has a moisturizing effect on the skin and can maintain the normal physiological functions of the skin. It is generally considered to be non-toxic, non-irritating, has appropriate viscosity, and can moisturize the skin; Vaseline ointment is cheap, less irritating, easy to apply, and has a wide range of medicinal sources. , so it can be used to protect the perianal skin of children with diarrhea. Apply Vaseline ointment on the eroded skin around the anus to form a closed protective film so that the skin is not in direct contact with feces and forms a barrier to reduce the direct stimulation of the skin by feces and effectively reduce the damage to the perianal skin. Maintains the softness and elasticity of the skin, keeping the patient’s skin delicate and smooth.

With the advancement of the times, functional medical dressings will be the main trend in future technological development. Traditional dressings such as cotton, gauze, and towels have great shortcomings. Especially in terms of efficacy, they are difficult to compare with functional medical dressings. Wound healing requires an ideal healing environment. Ideal healing environmental factors include oxygen content, pH value, humidity and temperature, especially an environment that can keep the wound moist. Today, Vaseline oil gauze is widely used in clinical practice, but it has its shortcomings: it feels greasy and is not easy to clean; it easily sticks to wounds, causing secondary trauma and is difficult for patients to accept; it has no liquid absorption ability and cannot provide a moist healing environment, which is not conducive to wound healing. Therefore, someone has developed a moist gauze that is suitable for clinical use and is non-sticky, non-greasy, and can provide a moist healing environment. The gauze is made by adding hydrogel particles (sodium carboxymethyl cellulose powder) and medical Vaseline, a polymer material (polystyrene elastomer) coagulant, is coated on a polyester fiber mesh and is used to cover and drain burns, wounds, surgeries and other wounds to promote wound healing. Moisturizing Vaseline gauze adds water-absorbent gel particles to enhance the cohesion of Vaseline and overcomes the above defects: it does not stick to the wound, does not leave residue, does not infiltrate the wound, reduces the patient’s pain, and provides a suitable moist healing environment. With reference to GB standards, the wettability gauze has been evaluated and tested, and biological studies such as irritation and delayed hypersensitivity tests, and in vitro cytotoxicity tests have been conducted. The results show that the wettability Vaseline gauze is non-irritating, non-sensitizing, It has no cytotoxicity, which provides a basis for its clinical application].

  1. Moisturizing effect of Vaseline: Moisturizing refers to keeping a certain amount of moisture in the skin by preventing the evaporation of water in the skin and absorbing moisture from the external environment. Vaseline is a topical product that relieves the common symptoms of dry skin. The mechanism of Vaseline’s moisturizing effect is that Vaseline forms a certain closed oil film on the surface of the stratum corneum, which reduces the evaporation of water on the skin surface and acts as a moisturizer. It is for this reason that it is used in many recipes. In the north of my country where the relative humidity is low, the skin surface loses moisture quickly, and it is difficult for ordinary moisturizers to provide enough moisture. As a reliable moisturizer and emollient, petroleum jelly is very effective in relieving dry skin and can effectively It prevents the evaporation of skin moisture and increases the moisture of the skin, so Vaseline has a better moisturizing effect.
  2. Sunscreen effect: Vaseline is a key ingredient in sunscreen products. It is mainly due to its thermal insulation effect rather than as a sunscreen ingredient. More than 30% of sunscreen products in the United States contain petroleum jelly. Vaseline can protect the skin from damage and reduce sun spots. Using petroleum jelly before or after sun exposure can reduce the incidence of tumors.
  1. Anti-rust: Some instruments and tools in daily life, such as centrifuges, centrifugal turntables, biological dissectors, etc., require Vaseline as a lubricant; also power supplies, resistance boxes, etc. will rust due to oxidation when exposed to the air for a long time. If the rust-prone parts are evenly coated with a thin layer of Vaseline to isolate the metal parts from contact with the air, the instruments and tools can be used more flexibly.
  2. Anti-adhesion: During the use of frosted glass instruments in the laboratory, such as wide-mouth bottles, acid burettes, separatory funnels, etc., the frosted parts of the bottle (piston) plugs can easily stick to each other, causing the bottles to become sticky. The (pivot) plug cannot be unscrewed, causing it to be unable to be used normally. If you apply a little Vaseline on the frosted area, it will isolate the frosted surface from close contact and prevent it from adhering.
  3. Leakage prevention: Applying Vaseline on the frosted surface of glass instruments can not only prevent the adhesion between the bottle (piston) and the glass instrument, but also increase the sealing of the instrument and prevent the leakage of liquid medicine or gas.
  4. Anti-evaporation: Liquid chemical reagents prepared in small narrow-mouth bottles commonly used in laboratories. If the airtightness of the container is not good, it will not only cause a waste of reagents, but also seriously pollute the laboratory environment. Applying Vaseline can have the effect of preventing evaporation. Sealing effect, and this sealing effect can be maintained for a long time.

White Vaseline vs. Yellow Vaseline

The common points between white Vaseline and yellow Vaseline:

Both white petroleum jelly and yellow petroleum jelly are ointments that are odorless or almost odorless. They feel greasy when in contact with the skin and have a certain stringiness. Their melting points are between 45°C and 60°C. They both need to be sealed and stored. Both white petroleum jelly and yellow petroleum jelly can be used as raw materials for preparing medical ointments and skin protection ointments.

The difference between white Vaseline and yellow Vaseline:

  1. Color
    Yellow petroleum jelly is a yellow uniform ointment, which is made by mixing spice oil with paraffin and ozokerite (yellow). White petroleum jelly is a white or slightly yellow uniform ointment, which is produced by decolorizing and bleaching yellow petroleum jelly.
  2. In terms of use
    The difference between white petroleum jelly and yellow petroleum jelly is that white petroleum jelly has a wider range of uses. Because white petroleum jelly is made from yellow petroleum jelly after decolorization and bleaching, it has a nicer color and is more suitable for use in cosmetics and skin care products. However, yellow petroleum jelly can be used in eye ointment, but white petroleum jelly cannot, and medical petroleum jelly is yellow petroleum jelly. Yellow petroleum jelly can be used for falls and hemostasis in medical applications. It can also be used as an additive in cable manufacturing, mainly for its insulation effect.

    In summary, white petroleum jelly is mainly one of the substances in skin care and moisturizing products, while yellow petroleum jelly can also be used in medical applications in addition to skin care substances.
