Rated 5 out of 5 by scientist1 from the type of mineral oil its using -A Great product It uses the Pure Mineral oil -It is a great emollient and moisturizer working mainly by occlusivity. Occlusivity is one of the basic mechanisms of how moisturizers work and it means that mineral oil sits on top of the skin and hinders so-called trans-epidermal water loss, i.e water evaporating out of your skin. When compared to heavy-duty plant oil, extra virgin coconut oil, the two of them were equally efficient and safe as moisturizers in treating xerosis, a skin condition connected to very dry skin. The other thing that mineral oil is really good at is being non-irritating to the skin. The chemical composition of plant oils is more complex with many more possible allergens or irritating components, while mineral oil is simple, pure and sensitivity to it is extremely rare. If you check out the classic French pharmacy brands and their moisturizers for the most sensitive, allergy prone skin, they usually contain mineral oil. This is no coincidence.

Rated 1 out of 5 by valentine from Mineral Oil ? Given its cult status, I was surprised to see that this contains 2 chemicals which are to be avoided. The second largest ingredient is petroleum (paraffinum liquidum or mineral oil) which is derived from oil - the same oil from which petrol is made. The other is propylene glycol - another potential skin irritant and something which dries out the skin over time. I will stick to my usual brand. Escentual really need to start including ingredients on their product lists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SilviaM from Great cream I use this cream as the only step after washing my face and before makeup and I think it does a great job! My skin is combination with very oily T zone. Although this cream fells thick and it moisturises enough not to use a serum or an hydrated primer, I don't feel that it makes the T zone oilier. Great to apply makeup after and to hydrate the skin!
