The following moisturizers are ranked from best to least for preventing TWEL: Petrolatum, Lanolin, Mineral oil, Silicone derivatives, plant oils.
Petrolatum is a great ingredient, but isn't renewable which is why I look towards the use of lanolin. It's available in a "solid" form and a oil form. Which of these is more effective at preventing TWEL? I haven't been able to find much information on the subject.
I was also wondering if penetration enhancers would have any effect on petrolatum being absorbed into the skin or is it simply too big to be absorbed even with penetration enhancers?
Thank you for taking the time to answer my inquiry!
