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 This ensures that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts is easily absorbed. Scars:Scars are an integral part of the healing process and result from an over-production 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. Stretch marks: 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. Uneven skin tone: It 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. Aging Skin: 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. Dehydrated skin: 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.
