Definition: Mineral oil, as non offensive as it sounds, comes from a distillation of petroleum, yes the same one we use to fuel our cars. Keep in mind this isn’t what we are putting directly on our face, because they are purified and refined when used in skincare but still! Because mineral oil isn’t as volatile as other ingredients, it is used as an emollient in skin care products and has the power to soothe texture when applied to skin. As cheap as this ingredient sounds and is, you will find it in most of the luxury skincare products available on the market.
Mineral oil has such a bad reputation nowadays that cosmetic companies hardly dare to use it anymore.
