What is Bio Oil and what is it used for/benefits?
Bio oil is a skin treatment oil targeted to improve and reduce the appearance of scars and stretchmarks.
There are numerous benefits for using bio oil, such as:
Alleviation of stretch marks - helping the skin for women during pregnancy and during periods to escalate the elasticity of skin and lessen the formation of stretch marks.
Dry Skin - If you experience having dry skin in certain areas of your body, this helps by hydrating those dry areas and improves the texture for a smooth feel.
Scarring - Bio Oil also targets any new or old scars and supports the skin with a nourishing dose of Vitamin A, giving the skin the resilience needed to replenish scar tissues on your body and to decrease the appearance of these scars.
Ageing skin - Aids in smoothing and toning ageing or wrinkled skin and can be used on the face and body.
Uneven skin tone - Assists in the appearance of any blemishes or any hyper pigmentation marks caused by sun exposure, skin lighteners and hormonal changes.
Who can use bio oil?

Bio-Oil is safe to use during pregnancy, due to the low levels of vitamin A that is included in the product. However, healthcare experts recommend not to use more than 110ml a day if you are expecting.
