Okay so i always look at ingredients when im buying something but for some stupid reason IGNORED what was on my "Dabur Amla oil" because i figured so many people have used it and had pretty good success with it so it shouldnt be "TOO" bad, well, i googled the 2 questionable ingredients today in my oil which are  t-butyl hydroquinone, and paraffinum liquidum (we all know that parraffinum AKA petrolem is bad! but i had never heard of the other one).  Safe to say after what i read i will stick to my all natural stuff like i had been doing, and as of now im just out of $3.99 i used it once and it felt moisturized last night but DRYYY this morning, ...im not saying everyone should stop using it i just wanted to inform in case someone didnt know.

You'd have to cover your entire body in Amla oil day and night for several decades for any of that stuff to actually happen.

i just wrote it to inform,thats why i said "I" am not using it anymore because im very health conscious but i dont expect everyone to give it up, if you like it then thats all that matters...i also dont use hormonal Birth control because of it being dangerous but i know most women aren't going to ditch those chemicals either...i just found this Interesting.

ETA: typo

It seems like everything can lead to cancer these days...I work at a sub shop and a guy informed me that he didn't want lettuce b/c it can cause cancer Wacko  Thanks for the info
I use Amla in my prepoo every other week so I don't think it'll do much harm
