I know that the cost of gasoline, natural gas, etc is going up and I think if we can conserve as much as possible, we are just better off.
Anyway, getting back to mineral oil, I would prefer just to stay away from any petroleum based products.

i have a friend who is asking me about supplements for dry skin and these oil supplements came to my mind first.
