Bio-Oil® is a specialist skincare product that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Its advanced
formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, also makes it highly effective for numerous other skin concerns, including aging skin and dehydrated skin.
* Vitamin A
Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate on the label) helps improve the skin’s elasticity, texture and tone.
* Vitamin E
The most widely used antioxidant in skincare products today, Vitamin E increases the moisture content of the epidermis, making the skin softer, smoother and more supple. Vitamin E also assists in the proliferation and maintenance of healthy skin.
* Calendula oil
Calendula Officinalis, more commonly referred to as marigold, has been used for centuries as a natural antioxidant and has the ability to clarify and condition the skin, while providing soothing and calming benefits for sensitive skin types.
* Lavender oil
Lavender oil is well known for its skin conditioning properties, and is also effective in calming and soothing the skin.
* Rosemary oil
Rosemary oil helps to invigorate and condition the skin, and has calming and soothing properties.
* Chamomile oil
Chamomile has a calming and soothing effect and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin. It also helps to condition and clarify the skin, assisting to maintain its natural health.
PurCellin Oil™ acts as a delivery system for Bio-Oil’s other ingredients, dramatically improving its application and spreadability, and allowing for targeted absorption into the skin.
Bio-Oil is Preservative Free
Bio-Oil contains no preservatives. Microbes (bacteria, fungi and moulds) require the presence of water (or water vapour) and, in most cases, oxygen, to survive and proliferate.
Bio-Oil is anhydrous (no water present) making preservatives unnecessary as it is very difficult, if not impossible, for microbes to develop in this environment.
To help reduce the appearance of both new and old scars, massage regularly with Bio Oil. Apply to the scar 2 to 3 times daily, massaging gently with the fingertips in a circular motion. Do not use on broken skin.
To help reduce the possibility of stretch marks forming during periods of rapid change, massage Bio Oil regularly into the areas most susceptible to stretch marks.
During pregnancy massage abdomen, hips, breasts and upper thighs once or twice daily from the early months of pregnancy. For abdominal massage, apply Bio Oil all over you abdomen. Using gentle fingertip pressure, massage upwards towards your navel then outwards over your hips. Continue for 5 minutes. Then, working downwards from your navel, gently massage sideways and upwards. Abdominal massage, combined with antenatal and postnatal exercises, will be of great benefit in toning your muscles after delivery.
Uneven Skin Tone
To help achieve even skin tone, apply Bio oil twice daily to pigmentation marks, massaging with the fingertips in a circular motion.
Regular Bio Oil massage treatment helps smooth and tone sagging and wrinkled skin by promoting the skin's elasticity.
The skin's natural protective oil layer is constantly being stripped away by extreme weather, frequent hand-washing, bathing and showering and the drying effects of central heating or air conditioning. Bio Oil is especially effective in maintaining the skin's delicate moisture balance. Apply Bio Oil after bathing, showering, suntanning or swimming. Massage gently into skin, paying particular attention to dry or chapped areas.
