Petrolatum is mainly used as hair conditioner. It helps to enhance the appearance and feel of hair, increase hair body or suppleness, improve gloss or sheen and improve the texture of hair, including hair that has been damaged by chemical or physical action. Petrolatum is also a known skin protectant and skin occlusive. Both functions can be used to form a shield over the skin/scalp to protect it from external elements and helps seal in moisture to aid the skin natural barrier as well as to provide soothing. We are using only highly refined grades of Petrolatum.
