Benefits of Mink Oil
Healthy skin and hair with Omega 7-rich mink oil
Simple skin care is perhaps the best. The skin loses moisture every day for many reasons including the natural aging process. Mink oil is gentle to the skin and easily absorbed to restore moisture quickly. Moreover, mink oil contains the rare Omega 7 fatty acid, called “palmitoleic acid,” which is a key to cell health. With this, mink oil helps the skin retain moisture, protecting it naturally from damage caused by stress factors.
In addition, mink oil helps seal in moisture for the hair and scalp, too. Mink oil is a natural, chemical-free product that gives hair a youthful shine. Touch of Mink’s small batch products are created with the finest, natural ingredients and pure mink oil. It’s known that brittle hair is caused by many factors from weather to harsh products. Fortunately, mink oil shampoo replenishes moisture naturally with superior nurturing benefits similar to the scalp’s natural oils.

Uses for Mink Oil
Common uses for mink oil from skincare to pet shampoo
Mink oil is an all-natural moisturizer used in many personal care products. It is a key ingredient in hair and skin care and even makes hand sanitizer feel smooth and silky. It is also wonderful for pet shampoo, bringing out a beautiful coat shine.

Mink oil for hair care
Mink oil shampoo creates lustrous smooth hair with a gorgeous shine. The scalp is an area of the body that can get very dry and flaky and mink oil is best suited to repair this dryness due to its similarity to secretions from human sebaceous glands. Dry scalp may be a result of contact dermatitis caused by products applied to the scalp, including shampoos, hair sprays, and styling gels.
Over time, heat styling and harsh products can make hair dull and listless. Touch of Mink created a shampoo that is gentle and pH-balanced, and won’t leave hair limp or oily. For people who like the convenience of a 2-in-1 shampoo, Touch of Mink has a shampoo-conditioner as well.
In addition to moisturizing skin care, mink oil in hand sanitizer helps users maintain soft skin. People use hand sanitizers frequently both after washing hands or when soap and water are not available. Consequently, they tend to be very drying due to the high percentage of alcohol needed for its antiseptic properties. Luckily, mink oil makes the difference. Touch of Mink hand sanitizer moisturizes while protecting against 99.9 percent of harmful germs and bacteria. It is a “must-have” for cold and flu season and a very popular item year-round (especially for those in helping professions, such as education and medicine).
Touch of Mink products are now truly for the entire family with a special formula for pet shampoo, too. Mink oil in pet shampoo gives pets a clean and beautiful shiny coat while soothing hot spots and protecting skin on dogs, horses and other four-legged friends.
