Liquid petroleum, or mineral oil, is a key component of many ingredients in conventional cosmetics. Even though petroleum is found in nature, it is not allowed in natural personal care products.

Why?

Mineral oil is not derived from a living source. The material has been dead for tens of thousands of years. It cannot nourish the skin like extracts from a freshly harvested plant. Mineral oil also has a composition totally different from our skin’s natural composition. It leaves our skin greasy and suffocated.

The good news is that mineral oil is not necessary. It just takes that extra bit of more time and care to make the product from fresh natural ingredients.
