White Mineral Oil BP ( Food Grade )
White Mineral Oil BP-USP IP/BP/USP refers to a pharmaceutical-grade liquid paraffin that consists of highly purified, colourless, and odourless paraffinic mineral oils. These oils are derived from superior-quality paraffinic base oils. White Oils possess excellent biological stability and are entirely devoid of pathogenic bacteria. They are also free from aromatic hydrocarbons and exhibit exceptional lubrication and insulation properties.
In veterinary medicine, mineral oil is utilised as a gentle laxative for pets and livestock, aiding in the relief of constipation by retaining water in the stool and intestines. Moreover, mineral oil is a common component in baby lotions, cold creams, ointments, and cosmetics. It finds application as a heat transfer fluid in mechanical, electrical, and industrial systems, as well as in aerobatic smoke for air shows or personal smoke oil systems. Additionally, it serves as a lubricant in the food industry and during food preparation.
Food grade mineral oil, widely employed as a preservative, is particularly popular for treating wooden cutting boards, salad bowls, and utensils. Regularly applying a small amount of mineral oil to these kitchen items impedes the absorption of food liquids, prevents the retention of food odours, and facilitates easy cleaning
