Vaseline, the most famous petroleum jelly brand out there gets it’s name from the German word “wasser” which means water, and the Greek word “oleon” which means oil. The wonder balm had been around for over 140 years. Robert Chesebrough is the genius behind this remarkable skin healing product. He was a British chemist who sold illumination oil for a living. Robert was only 22 years old when he first traveled to a small Pennsylvania town where petroleum had been recently found. There he saw oilmen treat their cuts and burns by smearing the natural by-product of the oil from the drill. From that he was inspired to invent an effective remedy for healing skin dilemmas and Vaseline was born. It wasn’t all that easy though, it still took him almost 10 years to perfect.
