Vegelatum® Gels – Replace Petrolatum Naturally

Consumers today expect functional personal care products with more natural ingredients, such as: the replacement of petrolatum. Vegelatum® remains the industry standard in natural and effective petrolatum replacements, and consists of a wide offering of vegetable gels leveraging different plant oils, for various personal care applications.

Our patented Vegelatum® gel technology completely changes the physical state of plant oils without impacting its benefit profile, and is particularly useful in formulating anhydrous or low water systems. We have developed a full line of natural, functional replacements for petrolatum in a variety of formulations for Personal Care ingredients that uniquely address the major needs of the global Personal Care/ OTC market. This technology has been developed as a perfect balance between natural sources and real performance benefits.


Each product was carefully designed to harness the natural properties of the selected plant oil in a stable, aesthetically pleasing vegetable gel form. The resulting products have been proven to have the comparable water repellency to petrolatum, with a less greasy and less tacky skin feel.

Typical usage levels in anhydrous products is 10% +.
