Health Products - Bio Oil
So what about Bio-Oil?
It is a product promoted as “the product for scarring”, but when
we look at the ingredients its hard to see why anyone would ever want to put this on
What's in it?
Like Johnson's Baby Oil, the Bio-Oil base is
mineral oil, a bi-product of petroleum
and an not designed for use on our skin as mineral oil acts as a layer that’s difficult to absorb,
it clogs the pores which slows the skins' ability to eliminate toxins. This is
such a problem as our skin is one of our biggest illuminative organs in our body
and if our skin is clogged up with all of this mineral oil (like what is found in the bio-oil), how is our skin supposed to do its job ?
Its almost like putting glad wrap on our skin, preventing things from penetrating through it but also prevents it from being able to breath properly.
Mineral oil is dangerous if swallowed or inhaled and if its not good to eat, we
should not be putting it on our skin.
Sure any oil will soften skin for a while, but in the long term most experts
agree that it may cause more long term harm with prolonged use.
