Mineral Oil and why it’s ick!

We at Boozy Bunni are making a public pledge that we will never use mineral oil as an ingredient in any of our products. We feel it is an unnecessary ingredient for beauty and skin care products, as it provides NO benefit, and can actually be detrimental to your health – the only benefit it has is decreasing production costs for major companies.

Take a minute and read your skin, hair and cosmetic labels… chances are you will see mineral oil as a listed ingredient (ewww!!!)

Reasons we will never use Mineral Oil in Boozy Bunni products:

1. Mineral oil provides no nutrients whatsoever.

2. Mineral oil coats the skin like plastic wrap, disrupting the skin’s natural immune barrier and inhibiting its ability to breathe and absorb the ‘natural moisture factor’ (moisture and nutrition).

3. Mineral oil slow down cell renewal, collagen breaks down, and the connective tissue is destroyed. Normal cell development is slowed down and the skin ages prematurely when skin cells are robbed of moisture.

4. Applying it to your skin repeatedly can cause various negative hormonal effects, including ovarian dysfunction, endometriosis, miscarriages, and damage to the immune system.

5. According to the Environmental Working Group, mineral oil is derived from petroleum and may be contaminated with cancer-causing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).Sooooooooo gross!!

You will never see a Boozy Bunni product with mineral oil used as an ingredient, we PROMISE!!

Please be sure and read your product labels!!
