Vaseline Sheer Infusion body lotion

Is a Solution for:
Dry Skin
February 4, 2010 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments
Not long ago, Erin did a great job of rehabilitating Vaseline, petroleum jelly and petrolatum and clearing up the legal status of petrolatum products in Europe. So when I saw a new body lotion from Vaseline called Sheer Infusion ($7.99), I was disposed to look on it kindly.

Ironically, it doesn't any petrolatum, but is does have Stratys-3. Whatever, that might be. It is, says Vaseline, "designed to work differently for unbeatable moisture....No other lotion delivers this degree of moisturization to all layers of the skin".

There's really not much to Sheer Infusuon other than a sprinkling of vitamin E and B. The rest of the ingredients are bog standard emollients such as Isopropyl Myristate, a synthetic oil used as an emollient, thickening agent, lubricant or moisturizer in beauty products that should be used with caution by people with normal to oily skin since it is comedogenic and may cause acne inflammation. There are thickeners and a couple of silicones and that's about it.

Stratys-3 is, therefore, extremely underwhelming. Still, it comes out fairly well against Vaseline for men body lotion, which Jimmy described as 'tragic".


Water, glycerin, dihydroxypopyl trimonium chloride, isopropyl myristate, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, tapioca starch, cyclopentasiloxane, PEG 100 stearate, triethyl citrate, tocopheryl acetate, panthenol, fragrance, hydroxyethal urea, sodium cetearyl sulfate, phenoxyethanol, dimethicone, crosspolymer, cetyl palmitate, disodium EDTA, methylparaben, propylparaben.
