>>What is mineral oil?  Are there some common trade names?

petrolatum , colorless to yellowish-white hydrocarbon mixture obtained by
fractional distillation of petroleum. In its jellylike semisolid form
(known as petroleum jelly and also by several trade names) it is used in
preparing medicinal ointments and for lubrication. As a nearly colorless,
highly refined liquid known as liquid petrolatum, liquid paraffin, or
mineral oil, it is used as a lubricant, as a laxative, and as a base for
nasal sprays.

I suspect liquid petrolatum or liquid paraffin may be the UK usage.
