argan oil, and all of our baby blends, use only the finest, natural and organic ingredients which are free from additives, preservatives and artificial perfumes to:
- moisturise & protect baby from dryness - be gentle & soothing to baby - provide vitamin e from a natural source - allow natural parent-baby bonding through baby massage
most importantly, we do not use mineral oil or other petroleum derivatives, as do other baby oils. the base oil for all of our baby products is argan oil.
many people are unaware that most baby oils (including the most popular brands) are made from petroleum derivatives. they call it mineral oil so as not to sound too alarming.
what does that mean? well, do a quick search on the internet and you will find many dangers and harmful effects of using mineral oil, so why is it used in baby oils? answer: it is dirt cheap.
here are 5 of the real dangers of using these types of baby oil:
1. mineral oils cannot be metabolised and accumulates in the body's fat. 2. mineral oils have been linked to cancer 3. mineral oils block pores and prevent the skin from breathing 4. mineral oils have no beneficial properties that will nourish the skin 5. mineral oils have been linked to hormone imbalance
but just don't take our word for it, just do a little research by searching the internet.
it was when we discovered these facts that we decided to develop our own baby oil range. in fact, many of us here at argan have children and we were horrified to find out what we had been putting on our babies was potentially harmful. so our laboratory got to work and we have recently launched our natural, organic and safe alternative to mineral oil based baby oils.
