Mineral and silicone oils
Mineral oil is a commom ingredient in baby lotions, cold creams, ointments and cosmetics. It is a lightweight oil that is odourless and tasteless. It can be used on eyelashes to prevent brittleness and breaking and - in cold cream - is also used to remove cream-based make-up and temporary tattoos. They are less greasy than vegetable oils but they spread less easily onto the skin.
