Bio Oil is recommended for the following treatments:
Spots of the skin
Scars are an integral part of the healing process and are the result of an overproduction of collagen at the site of the wound. Scars undergo numerous changes as they mature, but they are permanent by nature. Bio-Oil is formulated to contribute to improve the appearance of scars, but it will never eliminate them.
Bio-Oil should be applied in a circular motion into the scar, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. In the fresh scars, Bio-Oil should be applied only when the wound has healed, and should not be used on lacerated skin. The results will vary from one person to another.
The formulation of Bio-Oil is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. Contains the innovative component PurCellin Oil™, which changes the overall consistency of the formulation and transformed into a light oil and not greasy. This ensures that all the benefits of vitamins and plant extracts are absorbed through the skin.
Bio-Oil has undergone safety assessments in accordance with the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on cosmetic products. The toxicological profile, chemical structure, level of inclusion and total level of daily exposure of each component used has been assessed and deemed safe for use (even in pregnant women).
Study on scars, 2010:
The study center
Institute proDERM for dermatological research applied, Hamburg, Germany.
To evaluate the efficacy of Bio-Oil to improve the appearance of scars.
Participants: 36 women of different ethnicities. Age of participants: 18 years to 65 years. The age of the scars: the newly formed 3 years. Location of scars: abdomen, leg, arm, neck, knee, torso, upper part of the body.
Randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled. The participants had scars matching or a scar large enough to apply a different treatment to each half of the scar and to allow a comparison intraindividual. The product was applied twice a day for 8 weeks and there was no massage on the treated area. The implementation was carried out under supervision at regular intervals. The evaluations were performed at 0, 2, 4 and 8 weeks. We studied different parameters of the scars that are defined in the assessment scale of the scar by patient and observer, Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale (POSAS).
Bio-Oil is efficacious in improving the appearance of the scars. A statistically significant result in just 2 weeks (day 15) was evident in 66% of the participants. After 8 weeks (day 57), 92% of subjects noted an improvement, to the point of almost the triple of what you improved in 2 weeks. A continuous improvement in the scoring of the scale PONDS throughout the study.
Bio Oil has received several awards and has been awarded in various countries.
