Bio‑Oil & acne

Acne is a skin disease characterized by areas of inflammation caused by blocked pores. Acne occurs when sebum (natural skin oil), which normally drains to the skin’s surface, gets blocked and bacteria begin to grow around the blockage. Bio‑Oil has been independently tested and found to be a non-comedogenic product, which means that it can be used without concern about further breakouts.

Acne is, however, a complex condition that requires tailored treatment to correctly control and manage.

Bio Oil & other skin conditions

Skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and heat rash are often characterized by skin that is low in natural oils and prone to dehydration. This causes it to become tight, dry and scaly and can lead to cracking, itchiness and flaking. To compound the problem, everyday skincare products contain soap, harsh detergents and alcohol that further strip the skin of its natural oils and cause it to become unbalanced. In some cases Bio‑Oil can offer relief from the associated symptoms (dryness, redness, itchiness) of the skin condition, but it cannot offer a cure.

Bio‑Oil’s formulation lubricates, soothes and conditions the affected area, providing relief from the tightness and itchiness, as well as improving the texture and appearance of the skin. Bio‑Oil also helps to prevent further moisture loss and protects the skin against irritants.
