Unknowingly, everyone uses petroleum jelly daily. In 95% of cases, it is applied to the skin. Petroleum jelly is much present in many cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.
Due to a severe hydrogenation treatment, our paraffins and microcrystalline waxes meet the quality requirements of the different pharmacopoeias and the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) for food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic sectors.
Gels have excellent dispersion and suspension properties. Colorless, hydrophobic and lipophilic, they are used as thickeners and texturizers.
Technical petroleum jellies and oils are mainly used in chemical and plastic industries (plasticisers, process oils, demolding adjuvants…) and in textile industries.
Pharmaceutical white oils are highly purified. They are colourless, odourless and of a superior stability to oxidation.
