Calumet Specialty Products Partners today announced the launch of its new Hybrid Petrolatum blends


Incorporate higher percentages of renewable resources while maintaining beneficial properties

Calumet Penreco LLC (a wholly owned subsidiary of Calumet Specialty Products Partners L.P.) is a leading refiner and processor of specialty hydrocarbon products including Mineral Oil USP, Light Mineral Oil NF, White Petrolatums USP and Hydrocarbon gels. In its quest to showcase the versatility of Petrolatum and to meet global need for natural products, Calumet today announced the launch of its new hybrid Petrolatum products. These four (4) new hybrid Petrolatums combine Snow White Petrolatum USP with one of the following 4 natural oils: Macadamia Nut Oil, Avocado Oil, Safflower Oil, and Olive Oil.

These new hybrid Petrolatums allow formulators to incorporate higher percentages of renewable resources while maintaining the beneficial properties of the Snow White Petroleum. The key attributes of these innovative new hybrid blends include moisturization and skin barrier protection and repair. Their rich feel and added smoothness make these blends especially suitable for skin care formulations. Potential applications include: Skin care, Lip care, Sun Care, Hair Care, Ointments, Bar Soaps and Bath Products.

“We recognized that consumers ask for products that are natural or naturally derived but above all are effective and overall efficacy appears to be an issue with natural products. It is well documented that the moisturization that petrolatum brings to the table is unsurpassed by any (natural or otherwise) product. Now with the new Calumet Penreco Hybrid Petrolatum blends, customers can have the best of both worlds – a natural product that offers the best moisturization properties”, Rich Callahan, Global Sales manager for Calumet Specialty Products Partners LP, explained. “And we are very confident that our new products will live up to the expectations of consumers as well as formulators”, he added.

Combining Petrolatum with natural ingredients like macadamia nut oil is the natural step to creating the best possible skin care products that still promote the most sought after product requirement: moisturization! These exciting new hybrid petrolatum blends are just another example of how Calumet Penreco continues to be on the leading edge!
