Liquidum Paraffinum

Liquidum Paraffinum is an exotic sounding way to say Mineral Oil,
a Petroleum by-product which coats the skin like plastic, clogging the pores.

Interferes with skin's ability to eliminate toxins, promoting acne and other disorders, slows down skin function and cell development; resulting in premature aging. It's used in many products (baby oil is often 100% mineral oil).

Any mineral oil derivative can be contaminated with cancer causing PAH's (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons).
Manufacturers use petrolatum because it is unbelievably cheap.
