Petroleum jelly

Petroleum jelly (also called petrolatum) is a blend of mineral oils and waxes, which form a semisolid jelly-like substance. This product hasn’t evolved much since Robert Augustus Chesebrough discovered it in 1859. Chesebrough saw that oil workers would use gooey jelly to treat their wounds and burns. He eventually packaged this jelly as 'Vaseline.'

Petroleum jelly benefits come from its main ingredient petroleum, which helps seal your skin with a water-protective barrier. This helps your skin heal and retains moisture.

But we often fail to utilise petroleum jelly to its fullest.
