Does your moisturizer contain any oil? Particularly mineral oil? Which moisturizer are you using?

the ingredients are

aqua, glycerin, stearic acid, glyceryl stearate SE, triethanolamine, paraffinum liquidum,paraben, phenoxyethanol, dimethicone, carbomer, methylparaben, disodium EDTA, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, isibutylparaben.

i have no idea what any of them are, could someone tell me if any of them contain oil?

paraffinum liquidum is another name for mineral oil. Either that or possibly dimethicone could be a problem. I'd get a different moisturizer if I were you.
