Dorothy's Original Skin Oil - Ingredients Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

HELP......I have used "Nivea Original Skin Oil" most of my life and never had a problem with it.  I just read the ingredients list  and I am not sure if they are Gluten Free.  I am relative new to this and feeling kind of lost.  Can anyone help me out with this?  I have googled the different ingredients but cannot make head or tails out of what I am reading.  Here are a list of the ingredients:  Mineral Oil, Water, Lanolin, Petrolatum, Lanolin Alcohol, Glyceryl, Dilaurate, Fragrance, Sodium Borate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisoithiazolinone.  Any information on any of these ingredient would be extremely helpful.  Thanks so much!  Marlene

It looks to be gluten free, but I would worry about the last two ingredients! One in 10 are allergic to these relatively new preservatives. It is found in liquid cleaning supplies, laundry detergent shampoos, baby wipes and conditioners. I get a poison-ivy type rash! Ugh!

If you have any allergies at all, I would think twice. My reaction took a while to build up. Now, it happens fast and I suffer! I think that manufacturers have removed it from baby wipes. Not sure about make-up wipes.

Search the Internet for yourself. It can be found on legitimate sites (Pub Med, etc.).

If you like oil, coconut oil is nice. If you can eat it safely, it is fine for your skin. It absorbs in a few minutes and you will smell like the beach! Search this forum for other products others have safely used as well.

No gluten suspects there, but like cyclinglady said, there are a lot of high potential for allergy ingredients in there.  If you usually don't have any problems with personal care products, you are probably fine.  However, if you have random allergies to various products, I would use a small test spot first to see if it agrees with your skin.  For skin oil, coconut oil is great, one ingredient and glides on thin and absorbs just enough into dry skin.  I recommend that as well.

I "took the leap of faith" and have now been using Dorothy's Original Skin Oil for a little over a year. It's THE BEST MOISTURIZING LOTION I HAVE EVER USED (with the exception of Nivea Original Skin Oil). The ingredients ARE gluten free, I have not had any reactions at all, and it is the ONLY moisturizer that actually works. Because the main base is mineral oil it does NOT clogs pores and leaves my skin the softest ever - almost like a newborn baby's bottom LOL.  Really, it is a fantastic moisturizer for extremely dry skin without all the parabens and other chemicals that are in other lotions that I tried and had to throw out because of adverse reactions. I highly recommend this to anyone who struggles with the excessive dry skin that goes along with Celia Disease. It's also great for moisturizing after the sun!
