What is liquid paraffin

Liquid paraffin, also called mineral oil, is an odorless, colorless and transparent oil obtained by distilling and refining the lubricating oil fraction of petroleum. It is chemically stable, non-volatile and water-insoluble at room temperature, does not oxidize under normal usage conditions, and does not discolor over time. It is biologically stable, does not allow skin disease-causing bacteria to propagate, and has excellent hygienic characteristics.

Since highly refined Sonneborn LLC's liquid paraffin is harmless to the human body and has very low skin irritation, it has been used as the main ingredient in baby oil for many years. In addition to such safety and stable physical properties, it is easy to formulate with other materials, therefore it is widely used not only in cosmetics but also in pharmacopeia products and quasi-drugs such as the base material for patch medicines.

In the cosmetics and personal care industries, Sonneborn LLC's liquid paraffin is widely used as a blending base and additive for various products due to its excellent permeability, good spreadability, and ease of emulsification. increase. Here, we introduce typical applications and grades.
