SUNWHITE® is a high quality petrolatum that is refined using hydrogenation reaction technology. Since impurities that are contained in small quantities in petrolatum such as unsaturated compounds and compounds containing aromatic rings are virtually completely removed, it is virtually unaffected by absorption of ultraviolet light, and is widely used as a base ingredient for cosmetics and an ointment base for pharmaceuticals.
