Bio-Oil® is the world's leading scar and stretch mark product.
Scars are an integral part of the healing process and result from an overproduction of collagen at the wound site. Scars go through numerous changes as they mature, but they are permanent in nature. Bio-Oil is formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, but it can never remove them.
Bio-Oil should be massaged in a circular motion into the scar, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. On new scars, Bio-Oil should be applied only once the wound has healed, and should not be used on broken skin. Results will vary from individual to individual.
When the body expands faster than the covering skin, the skin tears, forming a scar as it heals. These scars are visible on the surface of the skin as stretch marks.
The likelihood of developing stretch marks varies according to skin type, race, age, diet and hydration of the skin. Those most prone to stretch marks include pregnant women, body builders, adolescents undergoing sudden growth spurts and individuals who experience rapid weight gain.
Stretch marks are permanent in nature, and although Bio-Oil is formulated to help improve their appearance, it can never remove them.
Bio-Oil should be massaged in a circular motion into the stretch marks, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. During pregnancy, it should be applied from the start of the second trimester to areas that are prone to stretch marks such as the abdomen, breasts, lower back, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Results will vary from individual to individual.
Uneven skin tone
Uneven skin tone occurs when there is an inconsistent production of melanin by the body. This can be triggered by external causes, such as excessive exposure to the sun or the use of poor quality skin lightening products; or internal causes, such as hormonal fluctuations related to pregnancy, menopause or the use of oral contraceptives. Bio-Oil helps improve the appearance of uneven skin tone.
Bio-Oil should be applied to the affected areas, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. Bio-Oil does not contain a sunscreen factor. If using a sunscreen apply once Bio-Oil has been fully absorbed. Results will vary from individual to individual.
Wrinkled skin commonly associated with aging is largely caused by the weakening of the collagen and elastin support system in the skin. Bio-Oil contains numerous ingredients that help to plasticize the skin, making it softer, smoother and more supple, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkled skin. Bio-Oil also moisturizes, which improves the texture, tone, and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Bio-Oil should be applied to the affected areas twice daily. Results will vary from individual to individual.
The surface of the skin has an invisible oil layer which acts as a barrier to stop moisture from escaping. In a very dry climate, this lipid layer is often unable to cope and too much moisture is drawn out of the skin. Daily bathing or showering may exacerbate this by stripping away the lipid layer due to the astringent effects of soap and water. Bio-Oil supplements the skin’s natural oil layer, helping to restore its barrier function of retaining moisture.
Bio-Oil should be applied twice daily. Results will vary from individual to individual.
The Bio-Oil formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, which changes the formulation’s overall consistency, making it light and non-greasy, ensuring that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts is easily absorbed.
Bio-Oil has undergone safety assessments in accordance with the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on Cosmetic Products. The toxicological profile, chemical structure, level of inclusion and total level of daily exposure of each ingredient used has been assessed and deemed safe for use (including for use by pregnant women).
Bio-Oil is manufactured in accordance with cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) as stipulated by the World Health Organisation. All ingredients are tested for adulteration and microbiological contamination prior to production and a sample from each batch manufactured is laboratory tested and then retained and monitored over a 5-year period.
All Bio-Oil packaging is recyclable and all paper materials are certified to be in accordance with sustainable forest management practices.
No harmful emissions, hazardous waste or wastewater is generated in the production of Bio-Oil.
