Facts About A Misunderstood Ingredient

7 December, 2016 | posted by Carly Poore

Petrolatum is a common ingredient in many cosmetic brands, including Epionce, for its varying benefits to the skin. To help explain this sometimes-misunderstood ingredient, let’s look at some background about petrolatum’s safety and use in Epionce products.

Understanding petrolatum
Epionce formulates products with the most highly-purified USP (United States Pharmacopeia) grade petrolatum. A pharmaceutical grade means you can feel assured it is free of impurities, and clinical studies show UPS grade doesn’t clog pores. It is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as an over-the-counter skin protectant, which is why it is so commonly used in many cosmetic brands.

Our founder was focused on utilising ingredients that provided the right amount of protection, and was confident in its safety and efficacy when formulated in Epionce products. These ingredient standards help produce the highest quality product to help you achieve beautiful, healthy-looking skin.

Why use petrolatum?
The main priorities of the Epionce skincare line is safety and efficacy for users. A therapeutic amount of medical grade white petrolatum is included Renewal Facial products and body products. It’s a superior skin protectant that provides emolliency to products and is non-irritating so is even safe for sensitive skin.

As an occlusive ingredient, petrolatum is gentle enough to be used for wound care. Medical Barrier Cream is formulated with petrolatum, and is recommended as part of a post-procedure regime. The elegant cream helps calm and hydrate very sensitive skin and helps accelerate healing time.

Epionce has conducted over 15 clinical studies with finished products that include petrolatum. These studies have shown Epionce to be safe, even proving to be less-irritating and superior in anti-ageing results when compared to the gold-standard on the market.
