Mineral Oils & Petroleum Jelly

White Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum jelly is a thick mix of mineral oils and waxes that appears as a semi solid jelly-like substance. Petroleum jelly is widely used as a skin care product, a lubricant, and also as a treatment for minor cuts and burns. Notably, petroleum jelly is also known as petrolatum or white vaseline, by the popular brand name.

Gandhar Oil Refinery, a broadly recognised name among white petroleum jelly manufacturers, offers snow white petroleum jelly, white petroleum jelly, and also yellow petroleum jelly under our flagship brand label Divyol.

Divyol Snow White Petroleum Jelly, White Petroleum Jelly, and Yellow Petroleum Jelly are odourless, tasteless, homogeneous mixtures of ultra-pure hydrogenated hydrocarbon oils and waxes. They are FDA-approved and their manufacture is in consonance with good manufacturing practices (GMP). Surpassing IP, USP, BP, and EP requirements, these products are used as base materials and release agents in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, health care (including baby care), and food processing, among other industries.

Uses Of White Petroleum Jelly

The many white petroleum jelly uses include:

  • White petroleum jelly for lips is one of the most common uses we hear of for WPJ; it protects our lips against dryness and chapping.
  • It is in general used as moisturiser to treat/prevent dry, rough, scaly, or itchy skin. White petroleum jelly creates a sealing barrier between cells in dry skin so that it locks in moisture, and can speed up the natural recovery of our skin.
  • The product is also used to treat minor skin irritations like rashes, cuts, or burns, like those from radiation therapy.
  • It is used to treat dry hands; WPJ is used after washing hands, and usually applied throughout the day.
  • White petroleum jelly is also used to treat diaper rashes.
  • WPJ can help reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines.

White Petroleum Jelly FAQs

Despite being derived from petroleum and therefore seeming ‘unclean’, the final white petroleum jelly product is put through several purification procedures. Any remaining impurities are thus removed, creating a non-irritating white petroleum jelly. Dermatologists recommend white petroleum jelly for sensitive skin conditions, and they’re safe to use on your child’s skin as well. Remember to dry any area of skin thoroughly before applying white petroleum jelly, however. 

Contrary to popular belief, medical professionals have stated again and again that white petroleum jelly is non-comedogenic- as in the product does not clog skin pores, or cause any sort of irritation or acne.

Dry skin can be caused by external factors like changes in weather, soaps or detergents that don’t suit you, unhealthy diet, or central heating or cooling systems, as the natural oils in your skin are thus sucked out. White petroleum jelly can be used as moisturiser to treat/prevent dry, rough, scaly, or itchy skin. It creates a sealing barrier between cells in dry skin so that it locks in moisture, and can speed up the natural recovery of our skin.
