Vaseline

At any age, at any time, no matter what your skin needs, Vaseline wants everybody to be able to enjoy great, healthy skin everyday.

Healthy skin everyday

In 1869, 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 Vaseline.

Your skin is amazing

Just as Robert Chesebrough in the 1800’s, we continue to be motivated by a passion and curiosity about skin. It’s an incredibly 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.

And yet many people never stop to think about their skin. We’re not suggesting they should, by the way – people have more to think about each day than pondering the mysteries of their bodies. We’re suggesting that they can place their trust in a brand which does that for them, a brand that has been curious and passionate about skin, learning more and more about it, for over 130 years. And which offers them the distilled wisdom of this learning in wonderfully absorbent, beautiful to touch, delicately fragranced, everyday products that care for their body like no others.
