Baby Oil sounds so Nice! But what Is Mineral OIl?
Mineral Oil is a by-product of Petroleum - a Group 1 carcinogen according to the WHO. Petroleum is a natural fossil fuel that forms when a lot of random, decomposing organisms are exposed to intense heat and pressure. It is refined into a variety of products including gasoline, kerosene, plastic and the rest is sold as....you guessed it...”Mineral Oil”!
Mineral oil has no real benefit or mineral content. It creates an air-tight surface on skin that prevents exposure to oxygen and nutrients.
It can also trap dirt, dead skin cells and bacteria. It is also NOT biodegradable or sustainable.
