Naphthalan, natural mineral oil, is a natural therapeutic agent. Natural therapeutic agents have been used since the ancient times for preservation of health and preventing diseases, as well as treating existing illnesses and injuries. Naphthalan, which we use in Naftalan, is acquired through distillation of naphthenic oil. This is a heavy weight oil and falls into the group of the so-called heavy oils. It contains some light fractions, like petrol and kerosene, but also contains a high percentage of naphthenic hydrocarbons, like steranes, compounds that are similar to steroid hormones and provitame D. Sterane is the one responsible for therapeutic action of naphthalan. There are only two known deposits of naphthenic oil in the world: in Azerbaijan and in Ivanić-Grad.
