Vaseline or other names such as paraffin oil, white paraffin oil, soft paraffin and multiple hydrocarbons is a chemical substance with a semi-solid structure and a mixture of hydrocarbons.
Vaseline is actually a chemical used in making ointments.
Vaseline can be used in the form of an ointment, as well as as a therapeutic in the form of medicine.
Vaseline, which is used especially in the cosmetics industry and in the production of personal care materials, is widely used as a skin care agent.
Vaseline is a mixture of hydrocarbons that melts easily when it comes into contact with the human body at around 37 °C and becomes a spreadable consistency.
Vaseline, which is usually colorless, is a translucent, tasteless and odorless pure substance, sometimes pale yellow.

However, many companies also produce vaseline in a colored and scented form.
Vaseline does not oxidize and does not release any chemicals when it comes into contact with air.
Vaseline is soluble in petrolatum, turpentine, dichloromethane, chloroform, benzene, diethyl ether, carbon disulfide and oil, which is a water-insoluble chemical.
Vaseline, which has antibacterial properties, is used in the production of ointments to treat problems such as wounds, skin burns and skin cuts.

However, there is no definite scientific study yet on whether vaseline has a therapeutic effect as a medicine.
Vaseline is also thought to protect against ultraviolet rays.
The origin of vaseline, which is especially in the content of skin and hair care products, is 19.
Vaseline dates back to the 1869th century.
Developed by a chemist named Robert Augustus Cheeseborough, vaseline contains microcrystalline and mineral oils.
Vaseline, which is used not only in the cosmetics industry, but also in other sectors, is used as a leather brightener (shoes, bags, etc.), as well as in the repair of damaged wood.

Vaseline, as a personal care product, is in the structure of lotion, baby oil and hair care products.
What are the uses of vaseline? Skin care Vaseline is the strongest moisturizer.
When applied to the skin, it takes away the dryness and hardness of the skin in a short time and leaves a soft skin in its place.
Vaseline, which helps to moisturize the skin that is very dry, helps to heal cut wounds, scratches and burns on the skin.
Vaseline, which can be used as a body lotion, removes exfoliation, dryness and cracks on the entire skin, and gives softness to the skin.
Since Vaseline is a dense product, applying Vaseline directly to the face can block the pores.
To prevent this, vaseline is applied to the skin after it is melted.
That is, 1 teaspoon of Vaseline is placed in a small glass bowl.
The glass bowl is placed over the boiling water or hot water from the teapot.

Vaseline will melt after a while under the influence of heat.
You can apply the melted warm Vaseline on your skin in a thin layer.
You can use this moisturizer 1-2 times a week.
Eyebrow and eyelash care Vaseline contains a high amount of oil.
Because of this feature, the use of vaseline by people who have lost their eyebrows helps to re-grow the eyebrows, shape the eyebrow shape, and nourish and lengthen the eyelashes.

Because vaseline increases the number of acne.
Vaseline is not recommended for use during pregnancy (pregnancy).
Vaseline and petroleum derivatives in its content may cause side effects during pregnancy.
Also, Vaseline would be helpful to get help from an expert before using it.

Vaseline is essentially mineral oil jelly and it is more commonly referred to as Vaseline. 
A wide variety of moisturizers use it as a main ingredient because it forms a barrier that locks moisture into the skin. 
In addition, it is used in many different hair care products because of its propensity to provide the hair with shine. 
A number of individuals also use it for treating chapped lips and toenail fungus. 
Initially, the jelly was used primarily as an ointment to treat cuts, burns and scrapes; however, several studies were conducted by physicians and the findings have indicated that the product is not absorbed by the skin and it has absolutely no direct effect on the blistering process. 
The effectiveness of petrolatum in accelerating the healing of wounds stems from its capacity to seal burns and cuts, thereby preventing moisture from evaporating from the skin and inhibiting germs from entering the wound.

Vaseline (/pəˈtroʊliəm/), also known as crude oil and oil, is a naturally occurring, yellowish-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. 
Vaseline is commonly refined into various types of fuels. 
Components of Vaseline are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e., separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column. 
Vaseline consists of naturally occurring hydrocarbons of various molecular weights and may contain miscellaneous organic compounds.
The name Vaseline covers both naturally occurring unprocessed crude oil and Vaseline products that are made up of refined crude oil. 
A fossil fuel, Vaseline is formed when large quantities of dead organisms, mostly zooplankton and algae, are buried underneath sedimentary rock and subjected to both intense heat and pressure.

Vaseline has mostly been recovered by oil drilling. 
Drilling is carried out after studies of structural geology, sedimentary basin analysis, and reservoir characterisation. 
Recent improvements to technologies have also led to exploitation of other unconventional reserves such as oil sands and oil shale. 
Once extracted, oil is refined and separated, most easily by distillation, into numerous products for direct use or use in manufacturing, such as gasoline (petrol), diesel and kerosene to asphalt and chemical reagents used to make plastics, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. 
Vaseline is used in manufacturing a wide variety of materials, and Vaseline is estimated that the world consumes about 100 million barrels each day. 
Vaseline production can be extremely profitable and was important for economic development in the 20th century, with some countries, so called "oil states", gaining significant economic and international power because of their control of oil production.

Vaseline exploitation has significant negative environmental and social consequences. 
Most significantly, extraction, refining and burning of Vaseline fuels all release large quantities of greenhouse gases, so Vaseline is one of the major contributors to climate change. 
Furthermore, parts of the Vaseline industry actively suppressed science and policy that aimed to prevent the climate crisis. 
Other negative environmental effects include the environmental impacts of exploration and exploitation of Vaseline reserves, such as oil spills, and air and water pollution at the sites of utilization. 
All of these environmental impacts have direct health consequences for humans. 
Additionally, oil has also been a source of conflict leading to both state-led-wars and other kinds of conflicts (for example, oil revenue funded the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). 
Production of Vaseline is expected to reach peak oil before 2040 as global economies reduce dependencies on Vaseline as part of climate change mitigation and a transition towards renewable energy and electrification.
This is expected to have significant economic impacts that stakeholders argue need to be anticipated by a just transition and addressing the stranded assets of the Vaseline industry.

Vaseline is a mixture of a very large number of different hydrocarbons; 
the most commonly found molecules are alkanes (paraffins), cycloalkanes (naphthenes), aromatic hydrocarbons, or more complicated chemicals like asphaltenes. 
Each Vaseline variety has a unique mix of molecules, which define its physical and chemical properties, like color and viscosity.

The alkanes, also known as paraffins, are saturated hydrocarbons with straight or branched chains which contain only carbon and hydrogen and have the general formula CnH2n+2. 
They generally have from 5 to 40 carbon atoms per molecule, although trace amounts of shorter or longer molecules may be present in the mixture.

The alkanes from pentane (C5H12) to octane (C8H18) are refined into gasoline, the ones from nonane (C9H20) to hexadecane (C16H34) into diesel fuel, kerosene and jet fuel. 
Alkanes with more than 16 carbon atoms can be refined into fuel oil and lubricating oil. 
At the heavier end of the range, paraffin wax is an alkane with approximately 25 carbon atoms, while asphalt has 35 and up, although these are usually cracked by modern refineries into more valuable products. 
The shortest molecules, those with four or fewer carbon atoms, are in a gaseous state at room temperature. 
They are the Vaseline gases. 
Depending on demand and the cost of recovery, these gases are either flared off, sold as liquefied Vaseline gas under pressure, or used to power the refinery's own burners. 
During the winter, butane (C4H10), is blended into the gasoline pool at high rates, because its high vapour pressure assists with cold starts. 
Liquified under pressure slightly above atmospheric, it is best known for powering cigarette lighters, but it is also a main fuel source for many developing countries. 
Propane can be liquified under modest pressure, and is consumed for just about every application relying on Vaseline for energy, from cooking to heating to transportation.

The cycloalkanes, also known as naphthenes, are saturated hydrocarbons which have one or more carbon rings to which hydrogen atoms are attached according to the formula CnH2n. 
Cycloalkanes have similar properties to alkanes but have higher boiling points.

The aromatic hydrocarbons are unsaturated hydrocarbons which have one or more planar six-carbon rings called benzene rings, to which hydrogen atoms are attached with the formula CnH2n-6. They tend to burn with a sooty flame, and many have a sweet aroma. Some are carcinogenic.

These different molecules are separated by fractional distillation at an oil refinery to produce gasoline, jet fuel, kerosene, and other hydrocarbons. 
For example, 2,2,4-trimethylpentane (isooctane), widely used in gasoline, has a chemical formula of C8H18 and it reacts with oxygen exothermically:

2 C8H18(l) + 25 O2(g) → 16 CO2(g) + 18 H2O(g) (ΔH = −5.51 MJ/mol of octane)

The number of various molecules in an oil sample can be determined by laboratory analysis. 
The molecules are typically extracted in a solvent, then separated in a gas chromatograph, and finally determined with a suitable detector, such as a flame ionization detector or a mass spectrometer.
Due to the large number of co-eluted hydrocarbons within oil, many cannot be resolved by traditional gas chromatography and typically appear as a hump in the chromatogram. 
This Unresolved Complex Mixture (UCM) of hydrocarbons is particularly apparent when analysing weathered oils and extracts from tissues of organisms exposed to oil. 
Some of the component of oil will mix with water: the water associated fraction of the oil.

Incomplete combustion of Vaseline or gasoline results in production of toxic byproducts. 
Too little oxygen during combustion results in the formation of carbon monoxide. 
Due to the high temperatures and high pressures involved, exhaust gases from gasoline combustion in car engines usually include nitrogen oxides which are responsible for creation of photochemical smog.

Vaseline (also called petrolatum) 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.

Vaseline’s benefits come from its main ingredient Vaseline, which helps seal your skin with a water-protective barrier. 
This helps your skin heal and retain moisture. Read on to learn what else you can use Vaseline  for.

Vaseline, petrolatum, white petrolatum, soft paraffin, or multi-hydrocarbon, CAS number 8009-03-8, is a semi-solid mixture of hydrocarbons (with carbon numbers mainly higher than 25),originally promoted as a topical ointment for its healing properties. 
The Vaseline brand is a well known American brand of Vaseline since 1870.

After Vaseline became a medicine chest staple, consumers began to use it for cosmetic purposes and for many ailments including toenail fungus, genital rashes (non-STD), nosebleeds, diaper rash, and common colds. 
Vaselines folkloric medicinal value as a "cure-all" has since been limited by better scientific understanding of appropriate and inappropriate uses. 
Vaseline is recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an approved over-the-counter (OTC) skin protectant and remains widely used in cosmetic skin care (where it is often loosely referred to as mineral oil).

Medical treatment
Vaseline brand First Aid Vaseline, or carbolated petroleum jelly containing phenol to give the jelly additional antibacterial effect, has been discontinued. 
During World War II, a variety of Vaseline called red veterinary petrolatum, or Red Vet Pet for short, was often included in life raft survival kits. 
Acting as a sunscreen, it provides protection against ultraviolet rays.
The American Academy of Dermatology recommends keeping skin injuries moist with Vaseline to reduce scarring.
A verified medicinal use is to protect and prevent moisture loss of the skin of a patient in the initial post-operative period following laser skin resurfacing.

There is one case report published in 1994 indicating Vaseline should not be applied to the inside of the nose due to the risk of lipid pneumonia, but this was only ever reported in one patient.
However, Vaseline is used extensively by otolaryngologists—ear, nose, and throat surgeons—for nasal moisture and epistaxis treatment, and to combat nasal crusting. 
Large studies have found Vaseline applied to the nose for short durations to have no significant side effects.

Historically, it was also consumed for internal use and even promoted as "Vaseline confection".

Skin and hair care
Most Vaseline today is used as an ingredient in skin lotions and cosmetics, providing various types of skin care and protection by minimizing friction or reducing moisture loss, or by functioning as a grooming aid, e. g. pomade. 
Vaseline's also widely used for treating dry scalp and dandruff.

Preventing moisture loss
By reducing moisture loss, Vaseline can prevent chapped hands and lips, and soften nail cuticles.
This property is exploited to provide heat insulation: Vaseline can be used to keep swimmers warm in water when training or during channel crossings or long ocean swims. 
Vaseline can prevent chilling of the face due to evaporation of skin moisture during cold weather outdoor sports.

Hair grooming
In the first part of the twentieth century, Vaseline, either pure or as an ingredient, was also popular as a hair pomade. 
When used in a 50/50 mixture with pure beeswax, it makes an effective moustache wax.

Skin lubrication
Vaseline  can be used to reduce the friction between skin and clothing during various sport activities, for example to prevent chafing of the seat region of cyclists or the nipples of long distance runners wearing loose T-shirts, and is commonly used in the groin area of wrestlers and footballers.

Vaseline is commonly used as a personal lubricant because it does not dry out like water-based lubricants, and has a distinctive "feel", different from that of K-Y and related methylcellulose products.
However, it is not recommended for use with condoms during sexual activity because it swells latex and thus increases the chance of rupture.

Product care and protection
Vaseline can be used to coat corrosion-prone items such as metallic trinkets, non-stainless steel blades, and gun barrels prior to storage as it serves as an excellent and inexpensive water repellent. 
Vaseline is used as an environmentally friendly underwater antifouling coating for motor boats and sailing yachts. 
Vaseline was recommended in the Porsche owner's manual as a preservative for light alloy (alleny) anodized Fuchs wheels to protect them against corrosion from road salts and brake dust. 
“Every three months (after regular cleaning) the wheels should be coated with Vaseline .”

Vaseline can be used to finish and protect wood, much like a mineral oil finish. 
Vaseline is used to condition and protect smooth leather products like bicycle saddles, boots, motorcycle clothing, and used to put a shine on patent leather shoes (when applied in a thin coat and then gently buffed off).

Vaseline can be used to lubricate zippers and slide rules. 
Vaseline was also recommended by Porsche in maintenance training documentation for lubrication (after cleaning) of "Weatherstrips on Doors, Hood, Tailgate, Sun Roof". 

Industrial production processes
Vaseline is a useful material when incorporated into candle wax formulas. 
The Vaseline softens the overall blend, allows the candle to incorporate additional fragrance oil, and facilitates adhesion to the sidewall of the glass. 
Vaseline is used to moisten nondrying modelling clay such as plasticine, as part of a mix of hydrocarbons including those with greater (paraffin wax) and lesser (mineral oil) molecular weights. 
Vaseline is used as a tack reducer additive to printing inks to reduce paper lint "picking" from uncalendered paper stocks. 
Vaseline can be used as a release agent for plaster molds and castings.
Vaseline is used in the leather industry as a waterproofing cream.

Vaseline is mixed with a high proportion of strong inorganic chlorates due to it acting as a plasticizer and a fuel source. 
An example of this is Cheddite C which consists of a ratio of 9:1, KClO3 to Vaseline . 
This mixture is unable to detonate without the use of a blasting cap. 
Vaseline is also used as a stabiliser in the manufacture of the propellant Cordite.

Mechanical, barrier functions
Vaseline can be used to fill copper or fibre-optic cables using plastic insulation to prevent the ingress of water, see icky-pick.

Vaseline can be used to coat the inner walls of terrariums to prevent animals crawling out and escaping.

A stripe of Vaseline can be used to prevent the spread of a liquid. 
For example, it can be applied close to the hairline when using a home hair dye kit to prevent the hair dye from irritating or staining the skin. 
Vaseline is also used to prevent diaper rash.

Surface cleansing
Vaseline is used to gently clean a variety of surfaces, ranging from makeup removal from faces to tar stain removal from leather.

Pet care
Vaseline is used to moisturize the paws of dogs.
Vaseline is a common ingredient in hairball remedies for domestic cats.
Vaseline is slightly soluble in alcohol.

Vaseline, also called Petrolatum, translucent, yellowish to amber or white, unctuous substance having almost no odour or taste, derived from Vaseline and used principally in medicine and pharmacy as a protective dressing and as a substitute for fats in ointments and cosmetics. 
Vaseline is also used in many types of polishes and in lubricating greases, rust preventives, and modeling clay.

Vaseline is obtained by dewaxing heavy lubricating-oil stocks. 
Vaseline has a melting-point range from 38° to 54° C (100° to 130° F). 
Chemically, petrolatum is a mixture of hydrocarbons, chiefly of the paraffin series.

Vaseline (also known as petrolatum) has been a staple in homes for over a century thanks to its myriad uses. 
For years, it had been a dry skin savior, providing instant relief to chapped lips and cracked eczema patches—until reports about it possibly containing carcinogenic substances began to arise. 
Nothing quite beats the feeling of smoothing a thick petroleum-based balm onto rough skin, but is it actually safe to use? 
The concern has to do with the manufacturing process which includes polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) that are considered to have potential links to breast cancer.

Vaseline is a mixture of natural mineral oils and waxes, which are formed into partially solid, gel-like substance. 
Vaseline was first discovered in 1859 when the thick oil was found clogging up the machinery on oil drilling sites. 
Vaseline was later converted to petroleum jelly, then packaged and sold after oil workers found that the white, gooey residue appeared to aid in the healing process of burns and cuts on their skin.

Kim refers to Vaseline as "the quintessential petroleum jelly," and we agree. 
Those mega-sized tubs with blue lids full of a semi-solid substance are what most of us think of when we hear the phrase "petroleum jelly," although the ingredient can be found in countless moisturizers, lip balms, lotions, and even some cosmetics.

Vaseline’s unique moisturising ability is unlike many other ointments and creams, some of which just sit on the skin’s surface, or enter and leave the skin too quickly. 

Unilever’s original petroleum jelly – Vaseline® Jelly – helps dry skin to heal by locking in moisture and by creating a protective layer below the skin surface. 
By locking in moisture, Vaseline® Jelly helps combat conditions such as scaly, peeling skin and accelerates the skin’s own natural recovery. 

Personal care products containing petrolatum have a long track record of safe use, and Vaseline® Jelly has been a trusted staple in family bathroom cabinets for more than 145 years. 
Today’s Vaseline® Jelly is triple purified and has many protective and preventative applications, from beauty use to baby care

In the mid-19th century, workers in the first oil fields in the US found a jelly-like substance forming on their rigs and began to use it as an ointment for cuts and burns. 
The chemist Robert Chesebrough discovered how to distil this substance – petrolatum – into a lighter, purified version, which he marketed as Vaseline® Jelly. 
Since then Vaseline® Jelly has become enormously popular due to its effectiveness both on its own and as an ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products.

Spreadability is the ease at which a sample spreads over a surface in a thin even layer.  
The measurement of firmness (by penetration) and spreadability are highly correlated. 
Consequently, the spreadability values of a lipid rich sample will decrease with increasing viscosity of the oil (increasing hardness), resulting in an increased surface tension, giving a feeling of greasiness and tackiness upon application to the skin.

Vaseline is used as an ingredient in skin lotions and cosmetics.  
Vaseline is a semi-solid mixture of hydrocarbons.  
Vaseline falls into the moisturizing category as an occlusive, trapping water in the skin by preventing it from evaporating.

The spreadability of petroleum jelly is an important property measured by using a spreadability fixture consisting of a set of matched male and female Perspex cones, cone sample holder and base holder.  
The test measures the force required to obtain a given deformation and correlates these values with sensory estimates of spreadability.  
As the male probe penetrates the female probe the sample is compressed and extruded from the female probe, at an angle.  
This process simulates the spreading application of the sample on a surface.

Vaseline has been used widely for over 150 years. 
You can find it everywhere, from hospitals to classrooms, and it’s used for everything from chapped lips to diaper rash.

In fact, Vaseline's become such a staple ingredient in personal care products that we’re often slathering it on ourselves without even knowing it.

While the controversy around Vaseline isn’t new, it also hasn’t been resolved. 
Read on to find out why anyone who cares about using safe, sustainable products on their body and in their home should think twice about reaching for a tub of Vaseline. 

Vaseline is exactly what it sounds like: a gel-like byproduct of Vaseline, which is a form of crude oil. 
In fact, Vaseline was first discovered by oil rig workers who noticed it building up on the machinery and in the bottom of empty oil barrels. 

The workers began putting the semi-solid substance on cuts and bruises, noting the sealant-like effect. 
Word traveled fast about its apparent wonders, and the substance was branded and sold as Vaseline in 1870. 

Also known as petrolatum or soft paraffin, Vaseline is found in a wide range of moisturizers, conditioners, lip balms, baby care, and beauty products. 
In addition to being the main product in Vaseline, it’s also found in products like Aquaphor, Bag Balm, and Neosporin, among others. 

Even when you’re trying to avoid them, Vaseline-based products may also be hiding in your favorite products under a hidden name, like mineral oil, toluene, parfum, methanol, and anything that begins with propyl or butyl. 
Vaseline’s a common ingredient in candles, too 

Petrolatum-based fine mesh gauze is applied on top of the graft, and is secured with bacitracin ointment. No special dressings are required. Tie-over dressings may be used, depending on location and surgeon preferences, but they are not necessary. 
Conversely, the vacuum assisted system may be used as well.

Grafts are inspected at day 7. Autografts will look white yellow and at this time the patient may be sent to rehabilitation services to be measured for silicone inserts, placement of interim pressure garments, and start physiotherapy and occupational therapy. 
Bathing and moisturizing may proceed from day 10 after surgery, when a complete stratum corneum is present. 
In the case of small open wounds, they are treated with gentle care and baseline or any other wound care protocol. 
Vaseline is seldom necessary to regraft AlloDerm; small raw areas heal spontaneously by proliferation of keratinocytes of the skin graft that seed the areas despite disintegration of the architecture of the skin graft.

Reapply Vaseline to the maxillary and mandibular occlusal surfaces of the teeth with a toothbrush.

Mix clear acrylic liquid and standard powder. 
Mix these until the slumping stops. 
Vaseline your hands, roll the acrylic into a log shape, and then adapt and readapt it as described for intermediate splint construction.

Trim the final occlusion splint as described for the intermediate splint. 
Smooth the lingual edges for patient comfort.
If segmental osteotomies are planned, maintain at least 3 mm to 4 mm of lingual acrylic behind the incisors to prevent splint breakage or torque, which may otherwise occur in the operating room.
