Bio‑Oil helps to improve the appearance of new or old scars, whether from surgery, accidents, burns, scratches or conditions such as acne or chickenpox. Its unique formulation combines Vitamins A and E which work with the skin to promote cell regeneration. Vitamin E also increases the moisture content of the skin, improving the overall texture and tone of the scar and surrounding skin.
Bio-Oil’s mixture of plant extracts and oils help to reduce inflammation and condition the skin. Lavender and Rosemary oils also act as a mild antiseptic assisting in effective healing of the injured skin. Breakthrough ingredient, PurCellin Oil™, allows for easy absorption of Bio-Oil making the skin soft and smooth.
Bio‑Oil is safe to use on a scar once the skin's surface is fully healed. It should not be applied to broken skin. Younger scars will experience more significant improvement, although studies undertaken by MEDUNSA and proDERM have shown that older scars also benefit from regular use of Bio‑Oil.
Bio‑Oil is supported by doctors, pharmacists and physiotherapists alike in the treatment of scars. Not only does Bio-Oil improve the appearance of the healing skin, it also successfully maintains the elasticity of the scar tissue on joints and other high-mobility areas.
Clinical trials have shown that Bio‑Oil helps to improve the appearance of scars. For best results Bio-Oil should be applied twice daily for a minimum of three months. Apply Bio‑Oil by massaging into the skin in a circular motion until fully absorbed.
