Trusted by millions of people across the world, Bio-Oil has been clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of scars. With a unique blend of natural plant oils and vitamins, 89% of pharmacists recommend Bio-Oil for scar management. 

The Bio-Oil formulation combines some of the most beneficial skincare ingredients, including vitamin A and E with calendula, lavender, rosemary and chamomile oils, plus unique to Bio-Oil, PurCellin Oil, which helps to ensure they are easily absorbed deep into the skin where they can provide targeted treatment. PurCellin Oil also creates a dry oil which is non-greasy and easy to use. Vitamin A helps improve the skin's elasticity, texture and tone. Vitamin E is the most widely used antioxidant in skincare products today, increasing the moisture content of the epidermis, thereby making the skin softer, smoother and more supple. Vitamin E also assists in the maintenance of healthy-looking skin.

Calendula Oil (Calendula Officinalis), more commonly referred to as marigold, has been used for centuries as a natural antioxidant and can clarify and stimulates the growth of new skin cells. Lavender Oil is widely known for calming and soothing benefits. Rosemary Oil helps to invigorate, and it has mild antiseptic capabilities and thus eases congestion, puffiness and swelling of the skin. Chamomile Oil has a calming and soothing effect and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin.



What is it used for?

Bio Oil’s uses are broad ranging.  A unique, nourishing formula, Bio Oil can be used to help minimise the appearance of scars, uneven skin tone and stretch marks.  Bio Oil can even be used as a daily moisturiser to help rehydrate and replenish the skin’s natural oils.

Why do scars form?

When skin is damaged - either purposefully in a clinical setting, or accidentally in injury - the body works to heal over the damaged area as quickly as possible.  The body naturally puts its emphasis on speeding the recovery of the wound over perfection.  This will typically cause an overproduction of collagen in the affected area which can lead to scarring.

Can Bio Oil help reduce the appearance of scars?

Bio Oil has been clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of scars, both new and old.  Containing both Vitamin A and E, Bio Oil uses the skin’s natural healing mechanisms to promote cell regeneration in damaged skin.  Bio Oil also contains Rosemary and Lavender Oil, both of which contain antifungal and antimicrobial properties.  This helps to reduce the risk of infection, whilst also lessening inflammation to speed up the skin’s own healing process.

When can I start using Bio Oil?

Bio Oil should only be used on fully healed scars.  Never apply Bio Oil to broken skin.

How do I use it?

For the best results, Bio Oil should be massaged gently into the affected area twice daily, for a recommended period of three months.  The oil should be massaged in circular motions on the area until it’s fully absorbed into the skin.  Bio Oil can be used alongside other skincare products as part of a daily skincare routine, but should never be mixed into products before application.

How does Bio Oil work?

Bio Oil uses a combination of natural plant oils and vitamins to help nourish and improve the appearance of skin and boost cell regeneration.  Blending together ingredients such as PurCellin Oil, Vitamins A and E, Calendula, Lavender and Rosemary Oils, and Chamomile extract, Bio Oil uses the skin’s own healing mechanisms to add moisture to the skin and smooth out the appearance of scars. 

When can I expect to see results?

When using Bio Oil, cancer patients can expect to see results within 3 months if used as part of a daily routine.  But it’s important to remember that we are all unique, and skin will always heal differently according to the size of the scar, skin type etc.  For this reason, results will vary from individual to individual.
