Additional info regarding Mineral Oil:
Mineral oil is Clear, odorless oil derived from petroleum that is widely used in cosmetics. Despite mineral oil’s association with petroleum and the hype that it’s bad for or ages skin, keep in mind that petroleum is a natural ingredient derived from the earth. Once it’s purified to become mineral oil USP (cosmetics- and pharmaceutical-grade mineral oil), it has no resemblance to the original petroleum and isn’t a source of contaminants.
Why is mineral oil in cosmetics?
In cosmetics, mineral oil helps reduce water loss from a person’s skin, helping to keep skin moisturized. It is also inert, which makes it less likely to cause a skin reaction.
Is mineral oil bad for your skin?

The mineral oil in skincare products is certified as either USP (United States Pharmacopeia) or BP (British Pharmacopeia). It’s completely safe, soothing, non-sensitizing, and perfectly beneficial for the skin.
Mineral oil has no effect on the vitamin levels in your skin. In a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, cosmetic grade mineral oil was found to be non-comedogenic (meaning it doesn't clog pores, which can lead to blackheads and acne
