Product Description

Size: 200 ml

Product Description

Bio-Oil is trusted by millions of people across the world for scars, stretch marks, ageing skin, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone. A unique blend of natural plant oils and vitamins, Bio-Oil is a multiple use product that has been clinically proven(1) to help with scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing skin and dehydrated skin.

How can Bio-Oil help you?

Scars and stretch marks are very common, in fact, on average each person has three scars(2) and half of women have stretch marks(3). 89% of pharmacists(4) recommend Bio-Oil for scar management, so whether you have an old or new scar, Bio-Oil can help reduce the appearance when used correctly.

How does Bio-Oil work?

Bio-Oil Formulation

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) is more commonly referred to as marigold, which has been used for centuries as a natural antioxidant and has the ability to 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 a 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

How to apply Bio-Oil

How to apply

Bio-Oil can be used on the face and body and is suitable for all skin types. To gain the best results, it should be applied to the affected area:

  • Twice daily
  • Massaging in a circular motion, until fully absorbed
  • For a recommended minimum period of 3 months

Bio-Oil can be used alongside other skincare products as part of your daily skincare routine, but it should not be mixed with other products before application.

When using Bio-Oil as part of an overall grooming routine:

  • Apply it to cleansed skin
  • Allow it to be adsorbed for 2-3 minutes before applying other products
  • Use Bio-Oil in conjunction with an effective sunscreen, as Bio-Oil does not contain a sun protection factor


What's your skin complaint?

Scars: If you have visible scarring and feel it affects your self-confidence, as over a third(5) of women do, Bio-Oil's unique formulation helps to improve the appearance of scars. It can be used on new (once wound has healed) and old scars such as surgery, accidents, burns, insect bites, scratches and chickenpox.

Stretch Marks: Bio-Oil can be used during pregnancy to help keep skin moisturised and reduce the possibility of stretch marks forming, whilst also helping to improve the appearance of stretch marks gained during periods of rapid weight gain or loss.

Uneven Skin Tone: Bio-Oil can also be used for uneven skin tone, caused by hormonal fluctuations, skin lighteners or excessive sun exposure.

Ageing Skin: Bio-Oil helps smooth and moisturise ageing, sagging and wrinkled skin on both the face and body. Alongside the ingredient, PurCellin Oil, Bio-Oil also includes Vitamin A, which helps improve the skin's elasticity, texture and tone and Vitamin E, which increases the moisture content of the epidermis, making the skin softer, smoother and more supple. Another key ingredient is Chamomile Oil, which has a calming and soothing effect and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin.

Dehydrated Skin: Bio-Oil helps replenish the skin's natural oils, stripped away by factors such as extreme weather, water with high chemical content, frequent bathing and the drying effects of central heating and air-conditioning. Try massaging into dry patches such as nail cuticles, dry elbows and heels for targeted relief. Bio-Oil is enriched with Vitamin E to protect against dehydration and Vitamin A to keep skin supple and smooth. Bio-Oil skincare expert Kirsty Mawhinney says, 'You can use Bio-Oil all over your body, including on the face, to provide daily protection and to perfect your skin.

Bio Oil was recommended to me by a relative who had several major surgeries in a short period and was using it to minimize scarring. She was so pleased with it and found it worked really well in this area. She had also been putting it on her face and had discovered it had an effect on her skin tone. I was sceptical but as I am unwilling to buy expensive creams etc. I thought I would listen to her and give it a go.

I am 60 and menopausal and as a result my skin is beginning to thin and to line a little. The colour is also becoming rather uneven and the combination of all these was making me look ( and feel) my age. It took a few weeks of consistant use, but I have found that my skin is so much softer to the touch. The colour has evened out considerably and the lines are definitely much less obvious. I know it has worked because I cannot tell you how many compliments I am receiving on an almost dailly basis from people looking at me quizzically and then asking me what I have been doing, as I appear to be getting younger. I was approached by a perfect stranger the other day in the supermarket, who asked me what type of make up I was wearing as I had a lovely glow - I wasn't wearing any and was able to direct her to the Bio Oil shelf!

Don't give up if you don't see a difference after only a couple of weeks; the smalll amount of effort it takes to apply it a couple of times a day (e.g. before your morning routine and after cleansing in the evening) for a couple of months will pay dividends you will be delighted with. When it becomes an automatic part of your dailly routine, you can sit back and enjoy the compliments.

I bought mine originally from the high street and then a much larger size(125ml)bottle from Amazon, as it was a lot cheaper than retail.

Good blemish remover, but don't find it moisturises enough for me although this could be my very dry skin. Use Aqueaous cream to moisturise and Bio Oil for blemishes etc.

I bought this to help with scarring on my leg. It has really helped, and I've only been using it 3 weeks. Also been using it on my face at night to help with my wrinkles. However that would require a miracle

My favourite skin product and I've been using it for years. It won't make scars, dark spots or stretch marks disappear but the longer you use Bio Oil the more the skin improves and problem areas are less noticeable. I use the oil on rough skin on my knees and elbows, the heels of my feet to avoid cracked skin (do it before you go to bed and remember to wear socks), and the sun damaged skin on my upper chest, we weren't 'sun aware' back in the day!. Where the oil has had an unexpected but beneficial effect is my fingernails and cuticles. My nails are no longer brittle and grow without splitting. Now that's a real bonus. Bio Oil isn't a miracle cure but it's a great moisturising product with many benefits to skin. You only need a small amount. A 200 ml bottle lasts for months which makes the product good value for money.

very good! it works! (however do not forget to rub the oil with your hands first to make the oil warm and then pat it into your skin; because if you use it directly to your skin, your skin will become very greasy and the oil will not work. )

My sister introduced me to Bio-Oil when she gave me a bottle at Christmas.

I always give claims on health and beauty products a healthy dose of scepticism, but I decided to try the peach coloured liquid a try. Well it could hurt to try it.

It is interesting to note that it claims to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging and dehydrated skin. Unlike many such skin treatments it does not claim to make the scars or skin damage disappear.

Always check for an allergic reaction by applying a small amount to an area of hidden skin for a couple of days to ensure that you don't have a reaction. After all you don't want to apply it to your face and neck and end up looking like you have the lead role in the local AmDram production of the The Hunchback of Notre Dame or the Elephant Man.

I don't find the smell of the oil to be unpleasant, in fact the smell reminds me of Dove soap, but it is probably a coincidence. It recommends that you apply the oil twice a day for at least 3 months before assessing the effects.

I have found that you only need a small amount of oil as it goes a long way. You apply the oil by using a circular motion of the finger tips.

It is incredibly tempting to look at the small amount (a drop or 2) and think it'll never cover the area, but please don't use more than a spot or two at a time, the massaging will spread it.

6 weeks after bilateral knee replacements my surgeon was not pleased to see that my body had produced keloid scars. My scars were very prominent, dark coloured and unsightly and my surgeon suggested I try Bio-oil on them to try to reduce them. I followed the instructions and used Bio-oil twice a day and after 3 months the scars were very much smoother. Now I have been using Bio-oil for 6 months the scars are completely flat and fading in colour and I have reduced my usage to once a day. One of the secrets of using Bio-oil appears to be massaging the product into the skin very well. To deal with 2 fairly large keloid scars I have used 2 x 200ml bottles of Bio-oil over 6 months and am about to purchase a third one - thankfully the Amazon price is considerably lower than the High Street!
