Petroleum Jelly is a mixture of mineral oils, paraffin, and microcrystalline waxes that, when blended together; create something remarkable- a smooth jelly that has a melting point just above body temperature, therefore - it literally melts into skin, flowing into the spaces between cells and the gaps in our lipid barrier. Once there, it re-solidifies, locking itself in place.
Petroleum Jelly serves two functions: Firstly, it protects the skin from the effects of weather and exposure. Secondly, it forms an occlusive barrier to the natural water loss of our skin.
