I drink a billion glasses of water a day and live in a very humid climate but regardless, I’ve always had a tendency towards dry skin. That said, I have to depend on external things like lotions and oils to keep my skin looking not dry.
A long time ago, before I knew what baby oil was made from (mineral oil from petroleumâ€”mmm sexy!â€”and synthetic phthalate-laden fragrance) I used it without a second thought but these days, I try to make more natural choices. I used to love Neutrogena’s sesame oil but again with the scentâ€”it’s just not good to rub synthetic fragrances all over your body’s largest organ as it DOES get absorbed right into your system.
But alas, there are, thankfully, other options, one of which I use faithfully every day to keep from becoming too reptilian (full disclosureâ€”I did receive a review sample of this product a while back). Nature’s Baby Organics makes an organic baby oil with nothing synthetic in it at all. It’s certified organic and comprised of olive oil, jojoba oil , tamanu oil and sunflower oil and naturally scented with mandarin orange and coconut oils. It’s thick and yummy and smells good enough to eat and believe me, if I had a baby, this is the oil I’d use on them, as opposed to that sketchy petroleum-derived stuff you’ll find in every baby products aisle in America.
