Trying a baby oil for my baby was just out of question since the last his skin reacted badly to Jhonson’s baby oil.Since then I have been using Virgin Coconut oil.But then at times you just feel like giving a change, blame it to my habit of browsing the baby product section in the hyper market. Every time I visit a Hyper market I make it a point to check the products out of curiosity.While I was answering to one of my curious window shopping urge I accidentally laid my hands on Palmer’s Cocoa Butter formula baby Oil.I was not much interested in trying a baby oil for the above mentioned reason.But this had something which caught my attention ,unlike the belief it is mineral oil free.Most of the baby oil available over the counter are mineral oil.
Once it caught my attention I wanted to be sure before Investing my money into a baby oil which was not that urgent at that moment. I didn’t want to go for a compulsive purchase.
Few other things I noticed and made me buy this product to try
It is Paraben and Phthalate free.These are the most common chemical used to increase the longitivtiy of the product.These preservatives has been researched to have adverse health effect.Although the effect of these chemicals are under research stage ,but I want to avoid paraben products at least for my baby.

The packaging is actually very commendable, they have used a pump bottle for the oil which is very user friendly.Pouring the oil from a normal oil bottle always lead to extra usage.A big thumbs up to the packaging.
It has a mild cocoa fragrance which is very soothing.
About the product
It contains canola oil which is rich in Omega 3 and 6 and also rich in vitamin E.
Feedback after usage
It has almost been a month I have been using this oil for my baby’s massage.Its a light weight oil hence is non sticky.It moisturises the baby’s skin and makes it soft.There has been no allergic reaction.
The only drawback that I find in this product is the use of perfume.If the product would have been Parfum free It would have been amazing.The frangrance is mild though.
Overall the product was a good purchase.I have been using this oil mixing it with my night cream as I have an extremely dry skin.It is actually making my skin soft and supple.The effect on my skin so far has been the best.It has definetly secured a place in my regular toiletries along with the baby’s.
