Protection from chafing?
Petroleum jelly or breathable balm?
People have long used creams containing mineral oils (e.g. petroleum jelly) to protect their skin. However, these have an occlusive effect, i.e. they seal the skin. is means that moisture can build up below.
A breathable protective balm (Linola) now presents a solution to this problem. It protects critical skin areas from irritation due to chafing, sweat or urine whilst still allowing the skin to breathe. e textile and shoe industries achieved something similar many years ago with their breathable membranes.
