Baby Oil might remind one of Johnson’s Baby Oil. But the massaging of naturally procured oil on a newborn is not new to Indians. It has been done for ages by old grannies and nannies. Massaging oil on babies makes their bones and skin ready for the future, strengthening both.
Here’s an insight into why and what is Baby Oil:
- Baby oil is used for maintaining the softness of the baby’s skin (especially of premature babies). At times, it is also used by adults for their skincare and massage.
- Uses of Baby Oil:
- Moisturize skin
- Use as a massage oil
- Remove eye makeup
- Soothe cracked heels
- Substitute shaving gel
- Give flawless manicure
- Make your own baby wipes.
3. Baby oil is made with mineral oil that is a highly purified liquid derived from petroleum. It is used in cosmetics products as it is good fuel for moisturizing and hydrating skin.
4. Mineral oil is dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic. This means that it is made up of mild formulas that won’t cause an allergic skin reaction in people.

6. In any case, it is still a product. So, apply small amounts of baby oil to your elbow and leave it for 24 hours. Check for any redness, skin irritation, and itching.
7. Baby oil may irritate your eyes. Avoid using it on your eyebrows and eyelashes. Wash your hands before using this product.
8. Although Baby Oil is safe to use (mostly) on the skin, there is not yet any medical research on the benefits of baby oil for hair. It can make them shinier as it is a moisturizing product.
9. Final notes: Always check the ingredient list before buying a Baby Oil. Try to pick those that are 100% natural. Also, check for heavy scents and other possible uses/features.
The mass production of baby oils happened for the first time in 1935 by Johnson’s. “Weirdly,” and quite obviously, India has mass-consumption of the product.
