Science Proves the Healing Power of Vaseline

Mmm, summer. It literally breaks your heart and can actually dehydrate your skin, says Science. Bad news for those who love staying out in the sun and for hormonal and pregnant moms like me.

Actually, I'm feeling a bit reptilian these days, and apparently, a dry, flaky, and sometimes itchy tissue that now covers my body has taken over where my skin used to be. According to my dermatologist, the skin is exposed to factors that can damage and dry it out that may lead to Xerosis (pronounced "zeer-o-sis" and in layman's term, abnormally dry skin.) From hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, to the heat and pollution during one’s daily commute, skin is stripped off of its natural hydration and moisture.


Good thing I received my very own Vaseline kit to witness the healing power of Vaseline Body Lotion. Of course, it's important to note that Vaseline aims to make it easy for women to replenish the skin’s moisture by infusing what is known as a wonder ingredient into their new Vaseline body lotions.  If you, like me, appreciate a good mind-blowing fact, then this is something you'd like to try and see for yourself.


Can you guess what is the wonder ingredient which can now be found in the New Vaseline Deep Restore lotion & Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion? Well, it's the good old Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, an important staple in all households and despite all of the new products in the market, its popularity still reigns strong because of its healing properties and outstanding skin benefits. It's a do-it-all product that can heal burns, rashes, chapped skin, cuts, bruises, and more. 


For this experiment, see how moisture is retained on leaves where Vaseline Lotion is applied, thus keeping them lustrous and moisturized. The other batch of leaves, on the other hand, were not applied with lotion, thus causing them to be dry and brittle.



A similar kind of principle is applied wherein moisture is retained in the innermost layers of our skin. This is made possible with the help of  Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. We all know that it hydrates lips and your super dry spots, and it has many other surprising beauty uses.

I tried it out and, lo and behold, it works better than anything else. That branded lotion in the commercial? Not so much. So yes, now, you can keep flaky, dry skin at bay and heal dry skin from within with the newest Vaseline Lotions, now with micro-droplets of Petroleum Jelly.


To showcase and prove the healing power of Vaseline, Vaseline took the ultimate test when it mounted a live billboard along C5 last April 8-10.  Real leaves were used, and half of them were covered with Vaseline jelly, while the other half had none. After three days, the difference was visible. The side that was coated with Vaseline jelly remained vibrant and moisturized, while the other half  dried. If Vaseline can moisturize a leaf and keep it vibrant, imagine what it could do to help heal your dry skin.

Watch the ultimate test that Vaseline took to prove its healing powers!
