Specification of white oil

White oil is too much refined mineral oil, extremely pure, stable, colorless, odorless, non-toxic. These attributes make it perfect for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and chemical processing.

It is not white at all, but crystal clear. White oil can be produced from a variety of feed stocks, depending on the process used. These starting materials include conventional base stocks for the older acid treatment process. Both processes produce colorless, odorless, tasteless oils where all components that might have any detrimental effects on their end usage, such as aromatics, sulphur or other impurities, have essentially been removed, resulting in a pure and thermally stable product. 

This oil is thin and clear White oil is refined and is clean of impurities.

White oil cosmetic grade is used in formulations for aging, delicate or barrier damaged skin, as the skin needs a protective barrier against certain environmental conditions and/or skin conditions.


Application of white oil in cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries

It is generally used in the production of cream and lotion formulations, baby oil, sun tan lotions, sun protection creams, makeup products, makeup removers, depilatories, and bath oils. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used in the production of laxatives, ointment and pomade formulations, and gelatin capsules. In the veterinary drug industry, it is used for producing animal vaccines. White mineral oil does not stay long in human body is removes from the body as it does not contain any chemically active group. White mineral oil used in the cosmetics and drug industry has to be pharma grade and should not contain any hazardous substances on human health. Because the product used gets into human body directly or indirectly.

white oil Uses in the food industry

White mineral oil is widely used in food industry. Particularly in the production of lubricating oils used in food and drink producers. If the lubricating oil used in food production plants is in contact with the food product, greases, hydraulic system oils, gear oils and compressor oils produced from white mineral oil is preferred in orderto minimize potential health risks. Such lubricating oils have to be suitable for contact with food and must not contain any hazardous substances on human health.

white oil in Plastics industry

It is used for thermoplastic rubber production, PVC production, and polystyrene manufacturing. In addition to these uses, glossing products, polishes, wood products, cleaning products, lamp oil, glues, and toys. The number and variety of such products will likely increase in the near future with ever-advancing technology and our growing needs., story of white mineral oil starts in a well as crude petroleum and ends in a giant industrial plant as catalyzer lubricants, or on the skin of a person who needs protection from the sun, or in the hands of a child as a toy.

suitable Packing for white oil 

Packing is normally is new steel drums, Iso tank, flexi tanks. Each 20 foot container takes 80-98 drummed white oil, if loaded in 2 rows it will be 80 drums and if one row of vertical added, it will be 98 drums.
