Liquid paraffin can be classified as an occlusive emollient. Occlusive ingredients act by forming a film on the skin that acts as a water-resistant barrier. The film also helps to prevent evaporation of the skin’s natural moisture. Over time, this increases skin hydration by causing a buildup of water in the uppermost layer of skin. While all skin types can benefit from emollients like liquid paraffin, emollients are especially helpful for those who have dry, rough, and/or flaky skin. Paraffinum Liquidum is a very highly refined mineral oil used in cosmetics.
Combined with super fine granulated sugar, this specially formulated hand scrub is gentle, yet effective.
