Are mineral oils bad for my skin?

No, mineral oils themselves are not harmful to skin.
Mineral oils’ poor reputation among some people comes from historical improprieties, such as in the post-WWII period, when cosmetics containing low-grade mineral oils rife with impurities were sold, and these caused skin problems.
In reality, however, the oils used in modern cosmetics are highly pure and chemically stable. They are virtually free of irritants and place very low stress on skin.
Petroleum jelly, for instance, is a mineral oil and, far from damaging skin, is actually used by dermatologists to treat atopic skin conditions.
Our cosmetics contain only mineral oils that meet stringent stability standards so you can use them with confidence.
