What are the benefits of Vaseline® Jelly?
Vaseline® Jelly works by creating a sealing barrier between cells in dry or damaged skin which locks in moisture and speeds up your skin’s natural recovery process, helping it to heal from within. Its occlusive function allows it to protect dry skin, cracked skin, minor cuts, scrapes, and burns. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines. Vaseline® Jelly can also be used to protect your lips against dryness and chapping.
How is Vaseline® Jelly different than other petroleum jelly products?
Vaseline® Jelly is the original wonder jelly. For over 140 years, it has been helping to keep skin healthy- looking and beautiful. Vaseline® uses the highest quality ingredients and a proprietary triple purification process involving distillation, de-aeration and filtration. This ensures that every jar is completely pure with a smooth consistency, unlike many of the imitation brands, which do not have the same level of stringency around quality.
If Vaseline® Jelly is made from petroleum, is it safe for me? My child?
Yes, it is safe for the whole family. While derived from petroleum, Vaseline® ensures the safety of its jelly by putting it through a triple purification process. This process removes impurities, resulting in a jelly that is non-irritating and hypo-allergenic. Vaseline® Jelly Original is recommended by dermatologists as a suitable choice for patients with sensitive skin conditions.
Will Vaseline® Jelly clog my pores?
No, it will not. Third-party industry experts from the Journal of Cosmetic Science1 have scientifically proven that Vaseline® Jelly is non-comedogenic, which means it will not clog pores, irritate your skin or cause acne.
What makes Vaseline® Intensive Care lotions different from other brands?
Only Vaseline® Intensive Care® lotions contain rich moisturizers and triple-purified micro-droplets of Vaseline® Jelly. This fast-absorbing, non-greasy formulation absorbs deeply to help heal dry skin deep down.
What external factors cause my skin to dry?
Dry skin can be caused by many factors such as weather, environment, some soaps and detergents, diet or central heating and cooling. The natural oils found in your skin can be removed through normal activities throughout the day, stripping the natural moisture protection your skin needs to stay healthy. Without the necessary moisture, your skin’s protective barrier degrades, which allows even more moisture to escape.
Why should I moisturize daily?
Moisture is important to your skin's health. Moisture gives your skin the strength and flexibility to protect your body. Over the course of the day your body loses about a pint of water. External factors like the ones listed above exacerbate the loss of water through your skin by breaking down your natural moisture protection. Vaseline® lotions replenish the necessary moisture and nutrients and help lock in moisture needed to help keep your skin healthy looking and beautiful every day.
