Mineral Oil’s Darkest Secret Revealed: What Is It Really Doing to Your Skin’s Natural Defenses?

BEVERLY HILLS, CA Mineral oil is a by-product of the distillation process that turns petroleum into gasoline. It has many industrial uses, including as a cutting fluid, a lubricating oil, a coolant and as a cleaner and solvent for inks in fine art printmaking just to name a few. Mineral oil is added to many lotions and other skin care lotions because it helps to draw in moisture from the environment. While it may keep moisture in, mineral oil also prevents your skin from absorbing oxygen and naturally eliminating toxins and other waste products. Both of these functions of your skin are such vital bodily processes that their malfunction can create dry skin along with many other unhealthy conditions. When you are using lotions that contain mineral oil as one of the main moisturizing ingredients your dry skin problem is not being treated but being masked. It weakens the health of your skin barrier leading to many dry skin-related problems. The simplest test is to stop using skin care products containing mineral oil for a few days. You will most likely notice that your skin will often go through a period where it is even drier than when you first started using the conventional lotion, proving that the lotion was not good for your skin in the first place.

“Dr. Lisa Benest, a board certified dermatologist from Burbank, CA explains: “Skin needs the natural oils and moisture it produces to be healthy but with the stresses your skin is exposed to these factors are often not present. Dry skin and other skin conditions come about when the protective outer layer is stripped away and irritants and bacteria get into the skin. The reason shielding lotions are such an effective skin care treatment is that they replace the protective barrier and allow the skin to heal from within.” The solution: Skin MD Natural shielding lotion.
