How is paraffinum perliquidum made?

Paraffinum liquidum is obtained from white mineral oil, also known as petroleum. The production process begins with the careful selection of high-quality crude oil, which then undergoes a series of purification and refining processes. These processes remove impurities and unwanted substances, resulting in the pure, colorless, and odorless liquid known as Paraffin 249. While the production process of Paraffin 248 and Paraffin 249 shares many similarities, there are subtle differences in the refining parameters and resulting properties of the mineral oils.
