Its bottle may look inconspicuous but Bio-Oil is a skincare solution that you shouldn’t overlook. After all, this product is the No. 1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 24 countries, including Singapore, and has won more than 332 skincare awards worldwide. There must be something about Bio-Oil that makes it so well-loved.

What is Bio-Oil?

You may have read reports of reality TV star Kim Kardashian-West raving about Bio-Oil, which she used to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy, or perhaps of former Spice Girl, Mel B, describing Bio-Oil as her “pregnancy tip for no stretch marks”.

While Bio-Oil is often raved about by mothers, because of its prominent success in eliminating the appearance of stretch marks, this specialist skincare oil is more than just that.

On top of stretch marks removal and prevention, it is also a solution for reducing the appearance of scars, correcting uneven skin tone, and can even be used on the face as a great moisturiser. In fact, Kim Kardashian swears by it around her eyes to prevent the formation of wrinkles!

How does Bio-Oil reduce scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone?

Now that we’ve read so much about what it does, it’s time to learn about how Bio-Oil does it. The magic in this specialist oil is in the unique breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™.

PurCellin Oil™ is the ingredient that reduces the thickness of the Bio-Oil formulation. Oils are typically shunned because of their greasy texture, but Bio-Oil’s unique formula allows it to absorb readily by skin, providing skin with a protective film that isn’t sticky nor greasy.

On top of helping the product achieve a comfortable texture, the use of PurCellin Oil™ also assists the delivery of key ingredients: Vitamins A and E, and Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary and Chamomile oils.

Together, these ingredients nourish skin’s natural oil layer, keep skin elastic, restore its natural barrier, and prevent water loss. These effects are able to deliver the results of reducing scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone.

Studies have been done to prove Bio-Oil’s efficacies

Many independent studies have been done to look into the efficacies of Bio-Oil’s formula. Here are a few of the most recent ones.

Scar removal

Trial centre: proDERM Institute for Applied Dermatological Research in Hamburg, Germany

36 female participants of different ethnicity backgrounds and ages were randomly given Bio-Oil and a placebo to apply on their scars. This is a blind test, which means none of them know what they’re actually using.

After eight weeks of assessment, and evaluated based parameters such as pigmentation, elasticity, colour, and height, the study has found that 92% of subjects showed an improvement after using Bio-Oil.

Stretch mark removal

Trial centre: proDERM Institute for Applied Dermatological Research in Hamburg, Germany

38 female participants of different ethnicity backgrounds and ages were randomly given Bio-Oil and a placebo to apply on their stretch marks. These stretch marks are caused by different factors, including post-pregnancy, weight gain, and adolescent growth spurt. It is a blind test, which means none of them know what they’re actually using.

After eight weeks of assessment, and evaluated based parameters such as pigmentation, elasticity, colour, and height, the study has found that 100% of subjects showed an improvement after using Bio-Oil.

Uneven skin tone

Trial centre: Thomas J. Stephens & Associates in Texas, USA

67 female participants of different ethnicity backgrounds and ages with clinically determined photo-damage were randomly given Bio-Oil and a placebo to apply on their skin.

After 12 weeks of assessment, the study concludes that 86% of subjects show improvement in uneven skin tone on face, and 71% sees improvement in pigmentation on face.
