Q: I've read that you can use mineral oil on skin. Is there any reason you wouldn't be able to apply this to your skin?

    submitted byCocoView - 3 months ago
  • A: If this mineral oil is a lubricant laxative with a 0.01% tocopheral (or "vitamin E"), meant for ingesting, doesn't this then qualify as "food grade" & thus, CAN be safe to use as cutting board oil??

    submitted byEBToy - 1 month ago

Q: Is this food grade mineral oil?

submitted by Serious Camper - 1 year ago
  • A: It's not "meant" doesn't mean it can't be used to safely to oil a wood cutting board. Tocopherals (0.01%) is nothing more than vitamin E. This isn't meat or mold or promotes bacteria growth, right?

This was recommended by my son's specialist to help soften bowel movements. It has been really helpful. This one in particular is more affordable compared to other drug store prices. I always purchase this with milk of magnesia since he takes them together.

The cap was loose and had leaked by the time I arrived home; I picked this item up curbside, but I have also received moldy onions at curbside as well as milk expiring in one day--Target seems to pawn off lesser quality items on curbside pickup the same way Fresh Thyme holds back items behind the rimmed checkout.

Great for Removing Eye Make up

5 out of 5 stars
pixiedust - 10 months ago
I realize not everyone can use this product on their skin, but it's a great eye make up remover for me. Mineral oil is in many dedicated eye make remover products. Most of those products come in 2 or 4 oz bottles at over double the cost of a bottle of mineral oil. It lubricates the skin while removing even the toughest mascara. I still follow up by washing my face with a gentle facial cleanser, so it's not on my face long.

Rancid after only 2 months

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
G - 1 year ago
Bought this mineral oil back in February this year for both digestive use and to condition my bamboo board & utensils. Everyone on the internet said that mineral oil doesn't go rancid, but the second time I tried consuming this oil, it tasted absolutely disgusting like I was consuming stale oil. I don't know how. The expiration date is still 2 years away and I was keeping it in the cabinet the whole time. I haven't even used much of the bottle & I already have to throw it away. Kind of a waste of money.

I make cutting boards and mineral oil is the best to keep the cutting board fresh, so the wood won’t dry out. Target has the best price for this item.

I liked that it doesn’t make your stomach, and it works. It’s not an instant since it costs your stomach before. It’s worth the cost to try it.

I bought this to restore my wooden cutting boards since they were looking dry and sad. With that being said… I did not try to use the oil as a laxative. I looked at many retailers online and this is by far the most affordable deal. My cutting boards look amazing and happy to have some moisture.
