Ultra-Pure Oils Health and Safety InFormation
Ultra-Pure Oils products are safe and non-toxic when used for their intended purpose - oiling a musical instrument. The US and Europe recognize all light oils sold to consumers as an aspiration risk, so they do not allow a "non-toxic" statement on the bottle. All brands of valve oils (and all other light hydrocarbon oils, whether petroleum or synthetic) require a safety warning statement and child-resistant packaging.
Synthetic oils and greases are considered safer than standard petroleum products since there are no strong odors which can cause irritation and discomfort. They are safe when in contact with food, so if a little oil or grease is on your fingers, there is no risk eating your sandwich! They are also non-flammable, non-combustible, and biodegradable.
