What is


An odorless and colorless jelly-like substance that has been used as a moisturizing agent since 1859.


Petrolatum is refined from petroleum.

Consumer concerns and what we know

There is a concern that petrolatum contains impurities such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) that are carcinogenic; however, highly purified petrolatum (pharmaceutical and cosmetic grade) does not contain PAHs and is considered safe worldwide – to the point that it is commonly used as dermatological medication to treat minor skin irritations.

Our stance

Petrolatum - Our stance
