Bio Oil has been clinically proven to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing and dehydrated skin. In addition, Bio Oil formulation combines some of the most beneficial skincare ingredients, including vitamin A and E with Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary and Chamomile oils. In addition, it also contains PurCellin Oil which is plus unique to Bio-Oil. This helps to ensure they are easily-absorbed deep into the skin where they can provide targeted treatment. In addition, PurCellin Oil also creates a dry oil which is non-greasy and easy to use.
Scars are an integral part of the healing process and result from an overproduction of collagen at the wound site. The scars go through a number of changes as they mature, but they are permanent in nature. Bio-Oil is formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, unfortunately 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.
The Bio-Oil formulation contains a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the ingredient PurCellin Oil™, that changes the overall consistency of the oil. This makes 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).
