Vaseline started life in 1859 as a by-product of oil production. Colloquially known as ‘rod wax’ it was regarded as a nuisance, as it made the drill rigs seize up. A chemist called Robert Cheesebrough noted this phenomenon and realised that many of the oil workers were using the substance to heal minor abrasions and dry skin. This prompted him to take some home to experiment upon, and, after months of testing, he refined it into the product that is instantly recognisable as Vaseline today. His invention quickly took off, and was popularly used to relieve conditions from nappy rash to more serious skin irritations. Vaseline petroleum jelly is a fantastically versatile invention.
