Paraffin Soft White
Profile: or Petroleum jelly or Petrolatum has a unique action among moisturisers. It has long been recognised as a highly effective emollient that promotes rehydration of the skin both long term and short term. It is a powerful moisturiser of the stratum corneum because of its ability to penetrate the uppermost stratum corneum layers, migrating into the intercellular lipid layers. Paraffin soft white moisturises via occlusion of the stratum corneum, with the application of even a small amount producing noticeable improvement in dry skin.
