So, what is gelée de pétrole?

Gelée de pétrole, also known as petroleum jelly, is a translucent, odorless, and tasteless substance derived from petroleum. It has a smooth and silky texture and is commonly used in various skincare and cosmetic products as a moisturizing and protective agent. Due to its ability to create a barrier on the skin, it is often used to treat minor burns, chapped lips, and dry skin. It is also used in the medical field as a lubricant for medical equipment and as a component in certain topical medications. Despite its name, petroleum jelly is non-toxic and has been deemed safe for use by the FDA.
