“Free-From” Petrolatum: Envelop your skin with comfortable and luxurious products

November 30, 2018

Winter is coming, so it’s time to wrap yourself in a blanket and turn up the heat. While you are staying wrapped in a blanket cocoon watching 13 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix (is that just us?), you want to make sure to offer the same comforting treatment for your skin. Petrolatum is commonly used to create a barrier effect on the skin, locking in moisture and offering a water-repellant film. In formulation, it helps bring body to the oil phase. Read on to find out how we can get these benefits and more, while staying free-from petrolatum!

Mimic the cocooning effect of Petrolatum with DUB Estoline®

The cocooning effect of petrolatum can only be matched with the newest ingredient from Stearinerie Dubois (opens new window), DUB ESTOLINE®. This highly innovative and highly structured polymer ester forms a mesh matrix on the skin, wrapping it in a comfortable, non-sticky cocoon.

The barrier effect from DUB ESTOLINE® (opens new window) provides protection against pollution and locks in moisture - perfect for formulations targeting city living.

With a honey-like texture, DUB ESTOLINE® can be added to any type of oil phase to offer a luxurious, comfortable finish.
