Friends, I am back here with a product review after long. If you have been following this blog, then you must be aware that I am not a frequent reviewer, however, whatever products are reviewed here are done so after thorough checks to ensure that the readers get to read an unbiased and clear review of the product.
Today I am reviewing the new Dabur Baby Massage Oil with Olive & Almond, and the samples of this product came from BlogAdda under their #FirstLove activity. My curiosity in this new massage oil was piqued because of my little nephew – and I thought it would be interesting to try this new massage oil on his and see how he reacts to the change in his massage oil. Also because this oil is from the tried and tested Dabur brand, I did not have any apprehensions about trying out a new product on a toddler.
Massage forms an essential and integral part of an infant’s health care and grooming routine and helps in the baby’s growth, so it is imperative that we use a massage oil that is not just enriched with healthy ingredients but is also devoid of harsh chemicals. On first glance, this is where Dabur Baby Oil Massage scores – the oil is parabens and paraffin free. Here’s why the tag paraben and paraffin-free matters –
- Parabens are chemical preservatives used to increase the shelf life of cosmetic products.
- Recent research says parabens may be linked to breast cancer and fertility issues.
- In some studies, skin problems such as dermatitis, and skin allergic reactions have been linked to parabens.
- Paraffin oils are petroleum by-products obtained from petroleum refining process.
- Lately, there have been studies and reports that say paraffin might be carcinogenic, and since they easily penetrate the skin, one can imagine the kind of risk it poses.
- Refined petrochemicals are generally regarded as unhealthy so it’s an unnecessary risk to regularly use therm on your skin.
Key Ingredients: Natural oils containing Sunflower, Sesame, Olive, Almond and Jojoba. Fragrance, Antioxidants – Tocopheryl Acetate and TBHQ.
TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone) is a synthetic antioxidant used as a stabilizer in oils.
It’s almost a week now that we have been using the new Dabur Baby Massage Oil on my nephew and though one can’t really comment or judge how the oil is inwardly affecting the toddler’s body, we can all vouch that he definitely looks happy and healthy, with glowing skin and cuddly muscles, touchwood. And given our faith and trust in age-old Dabur brand, I don’t see any reason to not believe in their new product.
