Mineral oil, a clear, odorless, and inexpensive oil distilled from crude oil, is a common ingredient in skin care products. It is sometimes referred to as Paraffinum Liquidum or Petrolatum in the ingredient list. Although it sounds really ‘crude’, several cult beauty brands such as Nivea and La Mer feature this oil prominently in their skin care formulations. And despite the origin, the mineral oil used in skin care formulations are really of refined, cosmetic grade.
Remember I mentioned about putting together a few boxes of goodies from some of the natural/organic brands and stores on Monday? Well, I have a name to these boxes and they’re called VivaBella Green Beauty Boxes! There will be five of them filled with green love to be given out in December and here’s a glimpse at the first batch of the goodies – three bottles of 200ml Jo Wood Organics Tula Cleansing Body Mousse and two bottles of 200ml Jo Wood Organics Tula Nourishing Body Cream worth over S$300 from natureLOVA.com. Lovely? Likey? More are coming!
