The thing about mineral oil is, it’s not been scientifically proven to clog pores but there are sooooo many better oils that will help prevent water loss (TEWL) so improve moisture in the skin, but also have other antioxidant qualities on the skin so why not choose those!?

We’ve only recently gotten to a place where most people aren’t freaked out when they see the word ‘oil’ associated with skincare.

For example Rosehip is rich in vitamin E and anti inflammatory, it is also fatty-acid rich, so is Macadamia Oil which is also nourishing and softens and soothes skin. Jojoba also rich in vitamins A, D and E whilst locking in moisture. (Find all these in Skinstitut’s Multi Active Oil, amazing for psoriasis and eczema or ultra dry skin
