Size Name: Pack of 2
Ok, Glamazons, there was a misprint in my last review, seriously, a MAJOR one. I am a human being and guess what. Sometimes I make mistakes! This one just happened to be one that I didn't proof read ahead of time, and therefore brought a hateful, and personal attack down upon me. On the bright side. I am able to correct my mistake! Yay! Blessing in disguise. -) Here are the reasons I love this product, and so do many physicians, estheticians, beauty experts etc.
Vaseline is 100%
petrolatum, while Aquaphor is 41% petrolatum based. With that being said, I am NOT writing a negative review about vaseline (vaseline has it's own positive attributes, I'm focusing on Aquaphor), I'm writing a positive one about Aquaphor.
Aquaphor is more miscible with aqueous solutions than Vaseline. Vaseline is mainly used in lotions as a catalyst, or lubricant, Aquaphor is not used in lotions. Aquaphor is made up of 41% percent petrolatum while the rest of the ingredients are lanolin and glycerin. Pharmacists use Aquaphor as a base for pharmaceutical ointments, unlike vaseline.
I, and my colleagues, clients etc. love to use this multi-tasker on our lips, with a little pigment mixed in you can make it any color. It's great for hands and feet in the cold dry months, and is really soothing in a medicated version on cuts, burns and scrapes. These facts came from a pharmacist, and can also be found on differencebetween.net (vaseline vs. aquaphor). Love Aquaphor, I find it to be a household necessity as well as a "must have" in your makeup kit. My reviews are done in the light for the greater good of all. Thank you to the person who brought my mistake to light. Many blessings to you.
