It depends what oil is used. A lot of times, Vitamin E oil is Vitamin E + Mineral Oil.

Potential Health Effects of Mineral Oil

----------------------------------

Inhalation:

Causes irritation to the respiratory tract. Symptoms may include coughing, shortness of breath. Inhalation of mist or vapor may produce aspiration pneumonia.

Ingestion:

Material is a cathartic and can cause serious diarrhea. Nausea and vomiting may also occur and possibly abdominal cramping. Aspiration of mineral oil into the lungs can cause chemical pneumonia.

Skin Contact:

Prolonged contact may cause irritation; occasionally dermatitis due to hypersensitivity occurs.

Eye Contact:

Mists or fumes can irritate the eyes. Can cause discomfort similar to motor oil.

Chronic Exposure:

Prolonged or repeated skin exposure may cause dermatitis. Highly refined mineral oils are not classified as human carcinogens. However, related forms (untreated and mildly-treated oils) are listed as human carcinogens by both NTP and IARC.

Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions:

Persons with pre-existing skin disorders or impaired respiratory function may be more susceptible to the effects of the substance.
