what is the difference between glycerin and Vaseline??
Vaseline is a brand name for petroleum jelly On the other hand, petroleum jelly is chemically derived from petroleum. Stiff like wax and black in color, petroleum was a material that built up on the oilers' rigs like mud but at the same time was a good "paste" that they could use for cuts and burns.Vaseline is made of pure petroleum jelly mixed with minerals and microcrystalline wax that make it smoother. Petroleum jelly is sometimes referred to as petrolatum, white petrolatum and white parrafin. When chemically derived from natural petroleum, petroleum jelly consists of a translucent, semisolid mix of hydrocarbons.
