Does anybody know where I can buy some unscented baby oil? All I could find were scented. :-(

You can get mineral oil on Amazon, and I'm sure you could find it at CVS, Walgreens, or Rite Aid.

Been there all. None sells unscented baby oil. Also mineral oil is more viscous than baby oil.

Good thinking keeping all scented products away from children.. I use Simple products for my grandchildren which are all perfume free.. Im always baffled at how some perfumed products like shampoo, lotions, wipes etc are allowed for babies in the first place...

Baby oil is just mineral oil with a fragrance added. So unscented baby oil would just be mineral oil.

You can get 16 oz of mineral oil for less then $5. But if you really want it to say BABY on the bottle, you can get 4oz of a high priced Organic baby oil for $15-$20. But they are still going to to have a smell to them.

Do you just not want synthetic fragrances or do you want an odorless oil? The Badger link posted above uses herbs, so will still have a smell to it.

Are you talking about the brand Simple? Do they have baby products? I've never seen that in stores, and none are listed on their website. It looks like they just have facial products (wipes, moisturizers, cleaners, and eye creams).

Mineral oil has different viscosity, much thicker than baby oil.

It does? I'm pretty sure that "baby oil" is just regular old mineral oil with scent added. I've bought mineral oil for various things - I never noticed it was different in visosity.
