Petrolatum USP


Petrolatum – also known as "white petroleum jelly" – consists of an odorless and tasteless mixture of oily and waxy long-chain, saturated hydrocarbons. USP-grade petrolatum possesses natural moisturizing properties and is a critical component in high-performance personal care formulations.

Unlike wax-oil blends that are masquerading as petrolatum, our products are real petrolatum. Real petrolatum is chemically inert, stable, and is not readily susceptible to separation like wax-oil blends.

Our Sterling White and Yellow Gold products are traditional petrolatums and would be familiar to anyone who has worked with white petroleum jelly. Applications include personal care, food processing, corrosion inhibitors, as well as lubrication applications.

Our petrolatum products are sold in drum quantities and pass USP as well as the requirements of FDA 21 CFR 172.880.
