Famous for being the No. 1 stretch mark and scar remedy, Bio-Oil actually has more benefits than that. The possibilities are endless to use this oil.
Let’s examine the product closely, shall we.
What is Bio-Oil: It is a specialist skin care oil which contains the ingredients of PurCellin Oil, vitamin A, vitamin E, natural plant oils: lavender, calendula, rosemary oil and chamomile. This rare blend of essential, natural plant oils and vitamins has been clinically proven to combat signs of aging, reduce stretch marks and scars.

I am using Bio-Oil for some scars on my feet – I am one of those people who are prone to have keloid after even a mosquito bite! Although it will take sometimes to see actual real results, I like the fact that the Bio-Oil is not sticky and absorb rather quickly on the skin. It says on their product guidelines that it will take approximately 3 months to see real results and results are varied depending on the scar type and the person.
Also, I found Bio-Oil to be a very effective hydrating agent for my dry toes. It really softens my dry toes and absorb on the cuticles rapidly.
