    You contracted yourself by saying the sizes of the jars and tubes differently:

    The original aquaphor ointment does not contain glycerin, which acts as a lubricant, panthenol, which is a moisturizer, and bisabolol, which is naturally scented with floral flavors, and has skin irritation reducing properties as well. This regular aquaphor ointment also comes in a different jar from the baby aquaphor. While the baby ointment comes in a jar of 14 oz and tubes of 3 oz, the regular ointment comes in a jar of 3.5 oz and 1.75 oz tubes.

    then in the summary it says:

    Baby aquaphor is packaged in 3.5 oz jars and 1.75 oz tubes, while regular aquaphor comes in 14 oz jars and 3 oz tubes.

    I just looked at the ingredients/label information in both the regular and baby, and there’s no difference between the two at all, other than one says baby and the other doesn’t. I looked at the 14 oz. jars…

      Aquaphor Healing Ointment, Advanced Therapy:

      “Active ingredients: Petrolatum (41%)……Skin protectant (ointment)”

      “Inactive ingredients: Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Panthenol, Glycerin, Bisabolol”

      That is, there is no difference in ingredients between regular and baby Aquaphor.

    I was really looking for the answer to this question.. but after reading above I’m wondering if you have any other reasons why they are different since your article is incorrect. They both have glycerin and bisabolol and they are both “petroleum based”not just the baby aquaphor. The only difference I see is the packaging sizes available and the word Baby only being on one. All ingredients are the same including the active ingredient (petrolatum 41%).

    All I know is that it is fantastic for after tattoo care .. especially for color tattoos. I’ve been using aquaphor since 2006. It’s not sticky unless you use too much. My tattoo artist says that if it’s sticky then you put too much (on new tattoo)
    You put a little and rub it gently around the tattoo and it absorbs. I use it for my dry, chapped hands .. especially in the Winter.
