Safe To Use Baby Oil: "Baby oil" is commonly applied to babies' skin. It does not moisturize however due to it's poor absorption by the skin. Beyond this, it can be used as massage oil on infant skin. Classical baby oils are safe when used as directed. As with any product, carefully read the label, avoid dyes & fragrances, avoid phthalates & parabens. See your doctor for any abnormal skin condition your infant may have
