I really did not know what mink oil is because I could not imagine them using an actual mink for this type of oil. I just thought it was some name for a type of essential oil. Boy was I wrong I am really disgusted/ disappointed by what it really is.

I found out that they put mink oil in some hair products :noidea: YUCK lol

is there something else to use on shears ? is there something else that comes from a plant I can use instead ?

You are using mink oil on your shears?
heck NO! every time I am at a dog show the shear vendors come up and harass my sister and I about their shears. Then they go on to say we need to buy mink oil between the joints of the shear ....

I don't understand what its used for.

I use it as a coat spray, and use an Oster lubricant for my shears, clippers etc...
I must say I am feeling a little silly and awful cause I didn't know it was made from mink fat :eek: When this can is empty I won't be buying another one. Don't really like the stuff too much anyhoo, it is a little too oily for my liking. I like the seabreeze oil from PP.

The only thing I have ever used it for was a coat spray. I use mineral oil to oil my clipper blades and shears.

Yup, it's made from the fat under the skin of the mink. It's been used for ages to treat leather - shoes, belts, saddles and so on... but worst of all, they put it in a LOT of cosmetic/skin care products. EEEeeeewwwwww! :thumpdown:
Pretty sad!
