Vaseline® Petrolatum Gauze
Vaseline® Petrolatum Gauze is a sterile, occlusive dressing consisting of fine-mesh, absorbent gauze impregnated with approximately three times its weight of white petrolatum.
• Petrolatum impregnate remains moist to minimize drying out and adherence
• Non-adherent fine mesh reduces pain and trauma during dressing changes
• Conforms to body contours to help seal air leaks and unwanted fluid loss
• Non-toxic, non-sensitizing, and non-irritating
Vaseline® Petrolatum Gauze is indicated for use on minor burns, skin donor sites, tunneling wounds, staple/suture lines, lacerations, abrasions, skin grafts, skin tears, circumcisions, umbilical bandage, and lightly exudating wounds.
