Cyclists – and Baby Oil

This is for all you cyclists who like your shiny legs and coat them with baby oil! You know who you are! Use Grapeseed oil instead.

A Special Note on Mineral Oil *
Mineral oil is present in the vast majority of body care products because it is incredibly cheap. Mineral oil, as well as paraffin and petrolatum, are petroleum products that
coat your skin like a sheet of plastic wrap, clogging pores and creating a build -up of toxins. This skin sludge can accumulate and lead to dermatological issues. It is a fallacy that mineral oil moisturizes your skin.
In fact, it interferes with your body’s own natural moisturizing mechanism, leading to dryness and chapping. Manufacturers continue to use it because it is so inexpensive. Mineral oil can be found abundantly in most baby products. In fact, conventional baby oil is just mineral oil and fragrance.
