No: The main oil you have to avoid is mineral oil. Most plant derived oils do not plug your pores. are absorbed and help moisturizer your skin. For this argan oil is a very good choice because of its medicinal and anti- oxidizing properties
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
