For many, the term "mineral oil" does not represent much concrete: at best, a guarantee of quality (minerals, nature) or neutral and non-impacting ingredients. The reality, however, is quite different. Immersion in the country of oils where one discovers the hidden face of certain words and the dark side of a part of the universe of cosmetics!
Stable, stainless, odorless, colorless, mineral oils are highly prized by the cosmetic industry. Less expensive than their vegetable cousins, are these oils all to please? Mineral oils are synthetic materials obtained by the distillation and refining of fossil fuels (crude oil, coal and certain shales). Products derived from petroleum that are applied conscientiously to our skin, being persuaded to do good. In an article of 29/09/17, UFC Que Choisir warns: "Mineral oils (Mosh) can lead to inflammatory reactions, and even worse, they can be Moah, hydrocarbons of aromatic mineral oils which are carcinogens.The toxicity of Mosh and Moah has already been revealed by the European Food Safety Agency in 2012. The organization warned of the Mosh and Moah's concern in food products. Derived from petrochemicals, mineral oils are not biodegradable. Pollutants, their impact on the environment is proven. Moreover, these inert oils do not have curative skin interests and have no nutritional quality (neither vitamin nor antioxidant). Not really glamorous and green mineral oils!
