At any time, no matter what your age or your skin type, the Vaseline skin care team wants everyone to be able to enjoy great, healthy skin.

In 1859, Robert Chesebrough, a chemist from New York, visited the oil fields of Titusville, Pennsylvania in the US to research to what new materials might be obtained from the fuel. Over the next decade he perfected the formulation of Vaseline petroleum jelly before opening for business in 1870. Vaseline quickly became known for its ability to protect and restore dry and damaged skin, and over the next century it established itself as a skin product found in households around the world.

In the 1860's, Robert Chesebrough, a dispensing chemist, discovered something amazing. He discovered a 100% natural product, rich in minerals from deep within the earth yet totally pure, which had remarkable healing properties when applied to cuts, burns and abrasions of the skin. That product was branded Vaseline petroleum jelly.

We continue to be motivated by a passion and curiosity about skin. It’s a complex and miraculous creation of nature – a set of interdependent systems and elements that even today we don’t fully understand. It protects us from adverse climate and from infection. It recreates and regenerates itself through our lives. It stretches, yet retains its form. It is waterproof, yet it can emit water.

Vaseline has dedicated it research to skin for over 145 years. Our products are the result of decades of research into how our skin works. We are constantly developing accessible, everyday skincare products to help keep your skin amazing.

Our mission is to provide the knowledge, advice and products that enable everyone to enjoy great, healthy looking skin every day.

Vaseline Lip Therapy is currently the biggest lip brand in the UK and our range includes Original, Aloe Vera, Rosy and Cocoa Butter.

Our Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repair & Protect lotion is our most efficacious product to date. Containing the highest levels of glycerine in our range, it provides effective moisture for very dry skin.
