Mineral oil, found in many skincare products, is another petroleum derivative that actually coats the skin and keeps it from breathing. The skin’s absorption and excretion functions are also slowed, as is the skin’s natural cellular development. Instead of being good for your skin, it causes premature aging instead. So, why use it? Unfortunately, many baby skincare products contain mineral oil.
Read your labels and look for mineral oil. Toss the bad stuff! Go clean!
