Question: Question from anisha

What's the hype with mineral oil? Should I avoid this like the plague? People are raving about organic products but I got a terrible reaction by using these so-called natural products. Please advise?

Answer

Thank you for your question. To be perfectly honest this debate has been raging for quite some time. There are in fact many mineral based products and oils that are of benefit to the skin. Just look at our sunblocks for example, some of the very best sun blocks on the market are as good as they are because of their mineral-based ingredients. Make no mistake there are certainly some that are NOT suitable for the skin and you would in any event, not find these in the more reputable product lines. This is why it is so important to get good, solid advice from a skin care professional before purchasing your skin products.
