Industrial Vaseline Safe or Not?

Published on 04/27,2018

Vaseline Cold Cream was the first commercial skin care product to be made using a refined petroleum ingredient. Its main advantages over traditional cold cream formulations would have been its lower cost and longer shelf life. It was widely copied and led to the incorporation of petrolatum into a wide variety of face creams and other cosmetics. Vaseline Cosmetique is a bit of a mystery. It is tempting to think that it was a petrolatum form of water cosmetique, which would mean that it would have been used to temporarily cover grey hair. Vaseline is made up of pure petroleum jelly combined with minerals and microcrystalline wax which makes it smoother. It has fragrances such as lavender oil or baby powder. More often that not, it is sold in various forms in the market – Vaseline could be in the form of lotions, ointments or creams. It can also be used as a lubricant and it helps protect minor cuts and burns. While unrefined petrolatum from an oil well does indeed contain impurities that might be carcinogenic, refined white petrolatum is free of these chemicals. Unrefined forms of petrolatum have industrial uses, but the white kind has been processed for use in drugs and cosmetics. The FDA, which regulates petrolatum as a drug and cosmetic ingredient, says there is no cause for concern about refined petrolatum. It is not true, as is sometimes claimed, that petrolatum has been banned in the European Union or Canada. Health Canada (the equivalent of the FDA) has studied the potential impacts of all sorts of petroleum products and has concluded there is no evidence that refined petrolatum in cosmetics is unsafe.
