Important Note: Mineral oil is registered as an OTC skin protectant drug with the FDA (Category I; allowed concentration 50-100%). This means that if you want to sell a finished product containing mineral oil and you make a skin protectant claim (incl. minor cuts, scrapes, burns, chapped skin and lips, poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, and insect bites), mineral oil must then be listed under 'Active Ingredients' on the label. Also, your facility and your product must be registered with the FDA and you must operate under cGMP guidelines. However, if no skin protectant drug claims are made on the label, mineral oil is not considered an OTC drug and no registration is needed.
