Mineral oil and Petrolatum

Mineral oil and Petrolatum form a barrier on the surface of the skin. According to the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, petrolatum "prevents moisture loss, forms a protective barrier on the skin, penetrates every layer of the stratum corneum, and assists damaged skin to repair itself." They also act as emollients.
