Beauty Myth of the Day

Scandle Candle's Beauty Myth Countdown

Myth #11:

Mineral Oil is comedogenic.

Cosmetic-grade mineral oil is not comedogenic. The myth is based on the idea that industrial-grade mineral oil and lubricants are the same as those used in cosmetic products. Medicinal white mineral oil has met with stringent safety standards.

It is important to remember that, while water alone cannot remove sebum plugs in the follicles, an oil-based product is needed but not all oils are created equal.
