  • Petrolatum vs AHA and BHA

    Posted by Abdullah on March 12, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    I use %5 petrolatum in my %8 AHA and %1.5 BHA lotions because it helps my eczema and i like it very much.

    I am wondering How does petrolatum effect the exfoliating effect of AHA and BHA and penetration of ingredients in skin?

    At only 5% in a waterborne emulsion product, petrolatum can only help not hurt. I like it a lot too.
