Vaseline is a popular item in the beauty industry as it can be used for many beauty regiments. Vaseline is a mixture of mineral oils and waxes, which form a semisolid jelly-like substance. This product hasn’t changed much since Robert Augustus Chesebrough discovered it in 1859. Chesebrough noticed that oil workers would use a gooey jelly to heal their wounds and burns. He eventually packaged this jelly as Vaseline. Benefits of Vaseline come from its main ingredient petroleum. Petroleum helps seal skin with a water-protective barrier which aids the skin to heal and retain moisture.
