Petrolatum USP


Resolute Oil's petrolatum products consist of an odorless and tasteless mixture of oily and waxy long-chain, saturated hydrocarbons. Our petrolatums are real petrolatum, which means they are not a mixture of wax and mineral oil like some other competitors' products. Real petrolatum is chemically inert, stable, and is not readily susceptible to separation like oil-wax blends.

Our USP-grade petrolatums possess natural occlusive moisturizing properties and are critical components in high-performance personal care formulations and pharmaceutical ointments.

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

If your application would benefit from a softer grade of petrolatum, you should consider our Soft Sterling White offering. This product is standard petrolatum that's blended with a small amount of white mineral oil that makes it more workable for applications like personal care and pharmaceutical ointments.

All of our petrolatum products pass USP as well as the requirements for FDA 21 CFR 172.880.
