Baby Oil Gel - "For external use only."

This may be a ridiculous question, but nonetheless I'm asking it.

To conquer irritated skin after shaving, I have found that baby oil gel is downright phenomenal and doesn't sting like after shave does. However, baby oil gel says on the label for external use only.

Now, I understand it's not like I'm drinking the stuff, but with shaving, say you get a nick or a cut or something. Would it be crucial to avoid using it at that point? Or is it something that's really just so people don't drink the bottle and sue when they get sick?

I just don't want something crazy where my brain cell count suddenly depletes after I use this stuff for a week after shaving everyday.

You're kidding right? They put that on there so people don't use it internally; like drinking it or in body cavities.

Haha I know, but it's still something I wanted to make sure about.

New question. Menthol cigs are worse than regular cigs. Right? What about menthol in a hand cream?
