Petrolatum USP


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

Unlike wax-oil blends, our products are real petrolatum. The advantage is that true petrolatum is chemically inert, stable, and 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.

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