Human use has less good data, but the initial small, uncontrolled studies suggest it may have some role in wound healing.

All biologically: derived cooking oils (particularly "healthy" polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oils) have the potential to "go bad." This process is called rancidity.

By contrast, most "baby oils" are a combination of mineral oil & fragrance & don't go bad. Hope this is helpful info! ...Read more
