This is Cosmetic grade Mineral Oil which mustn't be confused with industrial grade mineral oil for which there are known potential health risks from prolonged exposure. One of the key advantages it has over vegetable oils is its consistency from batch to batch, it will not change whereas plant oils can change dramatically depending upon climate, plant health, harvesting and storage. Its unique feel and properties have enabled it to be used in a wide variety of cosmetics and personal care products, from bath oils, hair care products, to skin care cosmetics where it provides many benefits including moisturizing and skin softening. Mineral oil is a popular preservative for wooden chopping boards, salad bowls and utensils. Rubbing a small amount of mineral oil into a wooden kitchen item periodically, will impede absorption of food liquids, and thereby food odors and ease cleaning.

  • Awesome
    Very happy with the product. Fast shipping was great. I would however recommend that a liquid item should of had some bubble rap or other cushioning material in the courier bag. Otherwise im a happy customer. Thank you.
