White Petroleum Jelly - Industry Applications and Benefits

26 Nov 2017

Petroleum jelly, also called Petrolatum, translucent, yellowish to amber or white, unctuous substance having almost no odour or taste, derived from petroleum and used principally in medicine and pharmacy as a protective dressing and as a substitute for fats in ointments and cosmetics. It is also used in many types of polishes and in lubricating greases, rust preventives, and modeling clay.


Petroleum jelly is made by the waxy petroleum material that formed on oil rigs and distilling it. The lighter and thinner oil-based products make up petroleum jelly, also known as white petrolatum or simply as petrolatum.


It can be used in a variety of applications from metal protection and lubrication of machinery used in food preparation to pharmaceutical applications as a component of ointments and barrier creams (most common commercial product being Vaseline).



  • Chemically inert so doesn’t react readily with common chemicals found in a pharmaceutical or food plant
