A lubricant is said to be ‘mineral’ when it is based on refined crude oil. Synthetic lubricants use bases from chemical reactions between various components.

The process for obtaining a synthetic lubricant, compared with that for obtaining a mineral oil, is more complex and therefore more costly. Nevertheless, synthetic products have superior properties such as resistance to oxidation, allowing them to be used in very severe temperature conditions and/or with a longer period between oil changes.

Semi-synthetic oils are obtained by carefully mixing a mineral base and a synthetic base. This produces, at a reasonable cost, properties that are superior to mineral oils since these oils retain the high performance characteristics of the synthetic base.
