So, what is mink oil?

Mink oil is a versatile ingredient used in various industries, including cosmetics, leather care, and lubrication. It is extracted from the fat of minks, small carnivorous mammals that are farmed for their luxurious fur. Mink oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, making it an excellent emollient for skin and hair. Its moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties make it a popular ingredient in lotions, creams, and hair care products. Mink oil is also used to condition leather, providing a soft and supple texture. Its lubricating properties make it a popular choice for industrial machinery and firearms. Despite its controversial sourcing, mink oil remains a valuable ingredient for many applications.
