Not worth looking into for me, because it sounds like "designer mineral oil" or something. Just doesn't sit well w/ me when there are so many other great oils available for use. I had a book about cosmetic and food grade ingredients, and mineral oil is petroleum derived. Period. If it's European petroleum, it's still petroleum. Yucky, and NOT for me. Having said that, I still give the company kuddos for integrity on other levels (except price point).
