Is baby oil safe to use daily?

I use it for my body moisturiser and read about this...

The outer skin cells take some of their oxygen directly from the air. The high level of mineral oil in baby oil will block this uptake of oxygen to the skin.

Hello......just read this post. Is there any other commonly used ingredients (in product formulation) that block the uptake of oxygen to the skin besides mineral oil?

Thanks for your time,

Yes, and this is a serious problem.

The is why we recommend with Emu Oil, which is similar to human skin oil, or Squalane, which is in the skin.

Both of these oils have been found in studies to improve skin health.

Thank you Dr.! I'm an avid label reader and enjoy educating myself. Does your book give specific examples of which ingredients to watch out for?

Not really since there are so many.

What I try to do is use ingredients similar to what is in the skin.

In the past, we worked on the effects of various ingredients on skin rejuvenation. This is the basis of our skin cream ingredients.
