This Jelly is also called Petrolatum or Vaseline, is a 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. India is a large manufacturer of petroleum jelly.

petroleum jelly   Jellies for Cosmetics

Our Jellies are available in a variety of colours and consistencies.

In the cosmetics industry, it is mainly used as as a base material and to increase consistency. The effect of jelly in the formulations of cosmetic products is chiefly due to its highly lipophilic character. Petrolatum is used as a masking ointment, as a vehicle system for peripheral active substances, and as a base for hydrophilic systems containing emulsifiers.  Petroleum Jellies add lubricity and moisture resistance to lotions, creams, ointments, and hand cleaners.

White petrolatum has a wide range of uses. It is a constituent of many products, including barrier creams, hand cleansing pastes, body lotions, hair care products, hand and skin creams, lip-care sticks and foot creams. In milking grease formulations the proportion of petroleum jelly may even be as high as 100%.

The most important properties of petrolatum which include melting point, consistency, fiber length and color are controlled to close tolerances by using carefully selected raw materials and the most advanced methods of manufacturing.

The fiber length of these grades is medium to long which is the most desirable for pharmaceutical and cosmetics use.

Discoverer and the first producer of Petrolatun was Robert Chesebrough in 1859 in Brooklyn, New York. Chesebrough was intrigued by the paraffin-like substance that stuck to the drilling rigs. All the riggers hated the stuff because it caused the rigs to seize up, but they did use it on cuts and burns because it helped them heal faster. Chesebrough bottled the jelly and took it back to his office where he tested it on himself.
