s THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST December 25, 1915




"VASELINE" when used in Ointments contains

more of the desired elements necessary for a universal
base than any other known substance, It has
emollient, antiseptic, healing and protective qualities
in itself, is not easily acted on by chemicals, and,
where properly protected from air and light, does not
change. Also, when incorporated with other medica-
ments, they are not injured by the action of the base.
These conditions have long been recognised by the
leading Physicians, Surgeons and Pharmacists
throughout the world. Animal and vegetable fats, on

the other hand, are subject to change, forming various
compounds, which destroy the end for which they
were intended.

The word " Vaseline " is the Registered Trade Mark of the

Chesebrough Mfg. Co. (Cons'd.)

42 Holborn Viaduct, London, E.C.

Complete Price List of all the " Vaseline" Preparations will be sent post free on application.

artificial flavour.

GHYMOL is as pleasant to eat as cream or the finest
