WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NAFTALAN AND OIL, AND WHAT ARE ITS HEALING PROPERTIES?

Naftalan oil, which we apply at Naftalan, is produced by distillation of naphthene oil. It is oil with a high specific weight, and is included among “heavy” oils. It contains little light fractions such as gasoline or kerosene, but contains a high percentage of naphthene hydrocarbons, among them steranes, compounds whose structure is similar to steroid hormones and provitamin D. The healing properties of naftalan are attributed precisely to steranes.
