Pedias nowadays will not recommend to put anything on baby's skin like lotion, oil, baby powder and the likes. But during the past generations, mothers used to put oil on baby before taking bath. They will put oil on the feet, hands, chest, back and head. They believe that putting oil will prevent baby from getting colds.
As much as I want to follow pedia's instruction not to put oil, for sure grandparents will not allow it. 😅 So instead of debating with them, I just looked for a baby oil that will be safe for my baby. Annddd... I chose HUMAN NATURE BABY WONDER OIL which is 99.99% natural. Almost perfect! 👌 It promises to protect and soothes baby skin.

The product claims that Human Nature Baby Wonder Oil is made from premium grade sunflower oil and is free from mineral oil and other harmful chemicals. It has NO mineral oil, NO phathalates, NO parabens and other harmful chemicals. Why it is important that a product should not be made of mineral oil, phathalates and parabens? Let me define each chemical:
ParabensAccording to Wikipedia, Parabens are a class of widely used preservatives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. Chemically, they are a series of parahydroxybenzoates or esters of parahydroxybenzoic acid (also known as 4-hydroxybenzoic acid). Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas. The concerns about endocrine disruptors have led consumers and companies to search for paraben-free alternatives.
Mineral OilA mineral oil or paraffin oil is any of various colorless, odorless, light mixtures of higher alkanes from a mineral source, particularly a distillate of petroleum. Most often, mineral oil is a liquid by-product of refining crude oil to make gasoline and other petroleum products. This type of mineral oil is a transparent, colorless oil composed mainly of alkanes and cycloalkanes, related to petroleum jelly. It has a density of around 0.8 g/cm3. Mineral oil is a common ingredient in baby lotions, cold creams, ointments and cosmetics. One of the common concerns regarding the use of mineral oil is its presence on several lists of comedogenic substances. The World Health Organization classifies untreated or mildly treated mineral oils as Group 1 carcinogens to humans; highly refined oils are classified as Group 3, meaning they are not suspected to be carcinogenic but available information is not sufficient to classify them as harmless.

PhathalatesPhthalates or phthalate esters, are esters of phthalic acid and are mainly used as plasticizers (substances added to plastics to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability, and longevity). Much of the current research on effects of phthalate exposure has been focused on children and men's health. However, women may be at higher risk for potential adverse health effects of phthalates due to increased cosmetic use. Diethyl phthalate and dibutyl phthalate are especially ubiquitous in cosmetics and personal care products in some countries. (Source: Wikipedia)
