The Vaniply Ointment has two main differences from Aquaphor. The first is that Vaniply contains no lanolin alcohol and the second is that there is no petrolatum in the Vaniply Ointment. Instead of being a petrolatum (petroleum jelly) based ointment like Aquaphor, the Vaniply Ointment contains hydrogenated polydecene as its moisturizing base which is a component of mineral oil that is noncomedogenic and won’t clog pores. In addition, most users have found the hydrogenated polydecene to be much more cosmetically elegant in its application than a product containing petroleum jelly. The active ingredient for skin protection in Vaniply is dimethicone. Vaniply ointment can be used on wounds such as sutures, cuts or burns, under hand cream or alone, as a lip treatment and on cuticles. Vaniply Ointment
