  1. Mineral Oil 4 out of 5 4 5 1

    This has “C13-16 Isoparaffin” listed under the ingredients. I’m not sure, but I read that fatty acids with carbon chain lengths 11-24 feed malassezia. Does this apply to squalane oil?

    Otherwise, this is very lightweight with an almost velvety-touch, and it didn’t sting or irritate my skin. But if you have very dry skin you might want to try something that’s more moisturising. I had to pair this with vaseline to keep my skin hydrated.

      Unfortunately, it does, Malassezia can utilize this compound to grow albeit very slowly. However, some folks say “Sugar Cane” instead of Olive Derived Squalane like this Squalane Oil Moisturizer , doesn’t give them any problems. It can also feed on mineral oil too but again, slowly.

A patch test is a method used to determine whether a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of the skin. Any individual suspected of having allergic contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis needs to patch test.

We each individually have very unique skin types and this is exactly why one person’s “Holy Grail” Skincare product can be the worst nightmare for someone else. Especially if you have extremely, sensitive reactive skin. Hence, it is super important to test products out on your skin first before plastering them all over your body especially the face only to later pay the price for neglecting this very important step of adding a new product or starting skin care routine.

Start by apply a1/2 pea size amount of product to the back of your ear
each time on clean skin, this must be done long enough so that you are able to see if any ingredient is causing irritation and or an allergic or comedogenic reaction on the skin. Application for two weeks morning and evening can be a good starting point for most people. For individuals with extremely sensitive skin types, these reactions may occur in as little as 24 hrs. You know your skin best so watch it closely as you carry out these tests. And stop if you notice, that the new product is giving you problems.
