Mineral oil is basically a derivative of petroleum products which is then refined to its usable form. It is essentially a naturally occurring oil. Mineral oil provides least protection to the engine components and is the most coarse and least viscous of all oil types, which is why it is recommended in the break in period because the coarse oil acts like a sand-paper and polishes the metal components of the engine.
On the other hand, synthetic oil is mineral oil which goes through an extensive treatment and is made significantly superior to mineral oil. This oil has high viscosity and high temperature resistance and offers the highest level of protection to the engine components.
