    Ive been using it too, and its safe as far as I know anyway!!! Its also FAB as a hair mask (takes a good shampoo or two to remove it all afterwards though!) and put a tiny blob in the bath with your normal bubble bath or whatever and it really moisturises your skin all over! :-D

    I don't see why you can't use it, it's not like you are going to eat it. It should be fine
