Mineral Oils - Do I want petrol on my face?

  • Mineral Oil comes from crude oil (petroleum), used in industry as a metal cutting fluid. 
  • It can suffocate the skin by forming an oily film on its surface.  
  • A healthy skin needs to take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide.  Mineral oil interferes with this process and also hinders the transpiration of waster product in the form of perspiration thus impeding certain essential functions of the skin.


Mineral oils cause petrochemical hypersensitivity.  This allergic reaction can become quite serious.  Serious carcinogens are commonly found in mineral oil.  Companies wanting to reduce their production costs on skincare products claim that it appears to form a good skin barrier against moisture loss.  The truth is its “cheap and nasty”.

Mineral oil is commonly added to a variety of beauty products including moisturizing creams and lotions as well as make-up and hair products.  It’s a popular cosmetic additive because it has no odor, and it feels good on the skin.  Despite this, mineral oil is the subject of serious concerns regarding potential toxicity and the potential for it to clog pores, increasing the risk of breakouts and acne.

When petroleum is distilled to produce gasoline, mineral oil emerges as a by-product.  With such an origin, it isn’t surprising that there’s a concern about the toxicity of this oil since petroleum products contain benzene, one of the most potent human cancer-causing agents.

Amongst the other side effects already mentioned the consistent use of products with mineral oil may also result in the development of allergies.  Many of us do not know the fact that most baby lotions are nothing but mineral oil in different forms that are modified with fragrance.

The known danger of Mineral Oil

After the innovation of fractional distillation, many different by products were derived from petroleum.  Though these by products were inflammable and had a high calorific value, they were virtually useless, until manufacturers started using them in cosmetics and home appliances.  One of the biggest draw backs of using mineral oil as a cosmetic is that it is a foreign application or an alien coating on the human skin.  Mineral oil is harmful to the skin because it tends to form a thin layer on the skin, which resembles a layer of plastic.

Take your skin to re-hab - go for vegetable oils in skincare, hair care, body care and baby care.

 Once ones skin becomes addicted to mineral oils then one usually experiences withdrawal symptoms - an extremely dry taut skin, a reddened skin or a skin with a slight rash- at least for a week or so until it regains its equilibrium.

 Alternative Skincare and Make-up

Dr Baumann Bionome skincare and make-up creates perfectly safe care for the whole family.  They use no mineral oil only vegetable oils such as Shea Butter, Macadamia, Evening Primrose, Jojoba Oil, and Sesame oil - Mineral oils whether in Make-up or skincare must be avoided especially when one has healthy alternatives.

 Your responsibility to yourself, your family and your friends.

Enjoy skincare and make-up devoid of all mineral oils.

Think Pink, think Healthy for you and your family, and PLEASE LET YOUR SKIN BREATHE!



  • Treating very dry skin is not as easy as just applying a very rich cream.  This type of skin needs care inside and out.  From inside, eating fresh oily fish, like salmon, nuts and seeds with a high oil content and supplements like omega 3, 6 & 9  will nourish and supply the skin cells with essential nutrients to produce a healthy skin.
  • Treating the skin from outside:
  • Cleanse the skin twice, morning and evening, with the Dr Baumann Cleansing Milk.  
  • Apply a Liposome of choice, morning and evening, onto a cleansed skin to transport active substances deeper into the skin.
  • Apply 4 drops of Vitamin A Ampoule at night, to regenerate skin cells.
  • Apply 4 drops of Vitamin E Ampoule in the morning to nourish the skin.
  • Apply the Intensive cream for Very dry skin morning and evening.  This has a high oil content to soothe and replenish oil in the skin.

Ideal for use after being in the sun or sun bed or for prematurely aged, sun-damaged skin.

APPLICATION TIPS: Dehydrated skin

  • It is a myth that the moisture in a moisturizer sinks into the skin like liquid into a sponge.  Mostly, the water evaporates within seconds of application.  What a moisturizer does in reality is sit on the skin surface, and prevent water loss by improving the skin’s barrier function.  To hydrate the skin deep down in the Basal layer, Liposomes are needed to transport essential nutrients and moisture to hydrate and treat the entire skin.
  • Here is how:
  • Cleanse the skin twice, morning and evening, first using the Dr Baumann Cleansing Milk, followed by the SkinIdent Facial Cleanser.  These two cleansers work in harmony to Cleanse the skin of dirt, make-up and pollution, without the drying effect.
  • Apply a Liposome of choice to transport moisture and nutrients deeper into the skin.
  • Apply 4 drops of the Humidity/Moisture Ampoule, morning and evening, to hydrate the skin.  This ampoule may be applied quite close to the eye area to diminish fine lines.
  • Apply the Essential Care Cream, specific to your skin type onto the skin, morning and evening for a highly moisturizing effect.

APPLICATION TIPS: Even Dry Skin needs Deep Cleansing

  • Stress on a dry skin, causes even more dryness.  Alternately dryness leads to fine lines and premature aging.  Although a small amount of oil is still produced, most of the time it cannot reach the surface of the skin to lubricate, due to dehydration.  Unfortunately it causes white heads and blackheads to form.
  • Here is how to treat it:
  • Cleanse the skin twice, morning and evening, with a Dr Baumann Cleanser of choice.
  • Apply the Cream Mask for Dry Skin every day, for 5-10 min.  Rinse and follow with a Liposome, and Ampoule of choice.  The Cream Mask not only deep cleanses, but also hydrates and nourish.  The Kaolin especially leaves a porcelain finish on the skin, ideal for make-up application.
  • Apply the Sensitive Normal and Dry Skin Cream, morning and evening.  This cream is filled with Vitamin A, E, Provitamin B5 and Jojoba oil to effectively lubricate and nourish a dry skin.
