Johnsons & Johnsons Baby Oil Review

Johnsons & Johnsons Baby Oil Review Summary

Johnsons & Johnsons baby oil is made up of 3 unique ingredients: mineral oil, a skin conditioner, and perfume.

Two of those ingredients, mineral oil and perfume, are not what you would say “beneficial” for the skin; but neither for the baby nor for the adults.

Mineral oil is derived from petroleum. Although after applying it you will notice that the skin is very soft, it is not recommended to use in babies, since their skin is 7 times more sensitive than the skin of an adult.

And although mineral oil is highly refined, and is said to be one hundred percent safe and good for the skin, especially dry skin, I would not use it to hydrate and repair my skin .

Why? Did you know that creams that combine mineral oil and paraffin can damage the skin barrier and increase water loss ? It is certainly highly discouraged to use.

Therefore, it is not surprising that many of the reviews and comments of users who have tried this oil are negative.

Among the negative experiences mentioned were people who had suffered a mild rash and irritation throughout the day and night.

This is also influenced by perfume, which many delicate skin types should avoid.

In addition, it is difficult not to run off your hands when applying it, and it leaves the skin slippery.

In order for it to really do its job, it must be applied to damp skin. Most moisturizers need water to work properly.

Therefore, apply the product after a bath or shower while the skin is still damp (not wet). In the case of very dry skin, you can soak the area before using the product.

Of course, it would not be a product that I would choose to hydrate my body, much less to put on my baby’s, however well known and popular it may be.


Instead, I prefer to use Nuxe’s ​​Huile Prodigieuse, which works holistically to improve texture and provide needed nourishment for the skin.

It does not have any petroleum derivatives, and is full of botanical oils that regenerate, hydrate and replenish the skin’s barrier, thus avoiding irritation and water loss problems.
