Just Say “No” to Mineral Oil | DefenAge® New Skin

Just Say “No” to Mineral Oil

Mineral oil has been used as an ingredient in skincare for more than a century, and its cosmetic use dates back to ancient Roman times. One of the most commonly used occlusive ingredients used to prevent water from evaporating from the skin and alleviate dryness, this clear, colorless liquid may sound like a skin savior but it’s actually far from it. Why? Mineral oil is a byproduct of the process that converts petroleum to gasoline.

The impact mineral oil production has on the environment is just one issue associated with this ingredient, yet research has identified a larger concern that hits closer to home. Research from the 1980s showed that mineral oil may promote the development of skin cancer. Although this study found a connection in cases of prolonged exposure to industrial grade mineral oil (while the mineral oil in cosmetics and skincare products is USP or BP grade, which means it’s highly purified and refined), this should be enough to make anyone want to steer clear.
