Talking to Briefly News, Destiny said that she learned about the hack from her mother.

"I asked my mom for advice about my baby’s dry scalp and she casually asked if I had liquid paraffin when I’d never even heard of it. It’s 100% safe and it’s great for all skin types except those that have an identified allergy to it."

Watch the cute video below:

Liquid paraffin is primarily used as a pediatric laxative in medicine and is a popular treatment for constipation and encopresis. Because of its ease of titration, the drug is convenient to synthesise.

According to Gyalabs, research has shown that liquid paraffin is safe to use, and it is needless to say that it is an inexpensive skin care agent. Studies have shown that applying paraffin on the skin does not cause any adverse effects on the skin.
