Mink oil comes from a thick fatty layer lying just under the skin of minks. It's light gold in color with a slight, musky, fragrance.
Mink oil has superior absorption and nurturing properties, more than any other oil on the market today! It penetrates skin deeply and quickly without clogging pores. It has no sticky, greasy or oily residue. Its high ratio of unsaturated triglycerides enables superior spreading capabilities. It lubricates skin, trapping moisture from the lower cell layers. It re-hydrates skin, with a light barrier, preventing evaporation of moisture throughout a day.
It contains a special ratio of glycerides, not available in any
other oils on the market. These glycerides allow superior softness,
smoothness and moisture retaining properties. Researchers know
that the refined oil of minks is very similar to human body oils. It's a valuable, natural, supplement in commercial and homemade skin care products.
It’s best known for its ability to preserve leather and waterproof, but it's used other ways. It's in several medicinal and cosmetic products. Cosmetics stay fresher for a longer period of time than cosmetics made with other oils. Some products include: soaps, lotions, creams and shampoos. Find it in pet shampoos, too! It benefits people and pets!

SOAP MAKING INFORMATION
When making homemade soap, the bars are silky smooth. It's best to only use it up to 1.5% of your total oils in your soap making recipes. You can use more but it will decrease the lather in your bar. You can use it up to a 5% ratio, but no more.
Add Coconut oil and Palm
oils for nice, bubbly, lather. Use it with Castor oil to counteract
some of its effects. Look for 100% pure oil. It can be
expensive! You may want to purchase it in bulk to cut costs. Add an essential oil of choice.
SHELF LIFE & STORING: It last approximately 5
years, unopened and 2 years, when opened. Store in cool, dry, location.
