Is mineral oil beneficial?

Mineral oil is a petroleum derivative and is often found in cosmetic products and laxatives. There are over 70 hidden names for mineral oil!

Mineral oil should be avoided because it depletes fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E, and K. Even when applied to the skin, mineral oil still has the potential to deplete fat-soluble vitamins.

Vitamin A is important for the health of the skin as well as your body’s internal membranes. Applying a product to the skin that depletes vitamin A can cause acne and other skin ailments.

Vitamin D is important for your bones, vitamin K1 is important for blood clotting, and vitamin K2 is important for calcium transportation. Vitamin E is important for sex hormones, heart health, and many other important bodily functions.
