Yellow Petroleum Jelly is a semi-solid blend of hydrocarbons and carefully chosen waxes that forms gels that resemble ointments and are practically odorless and have good moisturizing properties. The resultant gels are extremely emollient and have a consistency that makes them suitable for formulation with other active components.
Yellow Vaseline can be used as a basis for ointments, a dressing for protection, and a skin soother. These gels provide excellent moisture barriers, preventing skin moisture loss. Yellow Vaseline is applied in the formulation of a wide range of cosmetic, personal care products and pharmaceuticals.
Store in sealed containers under normal cool, dry and well ventilated warehouse.
