Bio Oil Review - Does Bio Oil work? - Bio Oil for Scars

Bio oil is a way of moisturising the skin with the added vitamins and other natural ingredients, preserving their potency. Oil is oxygen-free and provides a good environment for the storage of vitamins but is thick and greasy. Cream, on the other hand is non-greasy and is readily absorbed by the skin but contains oxygen. Formulating Bio-Oil has the best of both worlds where it is readily absorbed by the skin with plenty of oxygen trapped in the cream also the vitamins and natural ingredients from the oil.
Bio oil contains both vitamin A and E with both being essential to the body. One of Vitamin A’s functions in the body is for the retina of the eye. Vitamin A is absolutely necessary for both low-light and color vision a deficiency in Vitamin A can cause blindness which is seen in high occurrence in third world countries thus why ‘golden rice’ was invented. Vitamin E is important for the protection of cell membranes from free radicals which can cause damage to the cell membrane. Free radicals are a major factor in the development of cancers in humans. Your skin can be exposed to free radicals from things such as sunlight, radiation, sun beds etc. Not only is Bio-Oil a moisturiser but the vitamins that are added into the formula are of great importance and can help the body in more ways than thought by customers who buy the product.
The non-greasy oil in the Bio Oil comes from Purcellin Oil which is a laboratory recreation of the preen gland oil of ducks. During ‘preening’ a duck will secrete oil from it’s preen gland and distribute it over its entire body. This Oil creates a thin, non-greasy layer on the surface of the feathers without which water would not pearl off and the bird would struggle to swim. This Oil is seen used in the natural world and is successful, so why wouldn’t it be successful with our skin. The criticism of many people who buy the product is that it is to oily, although product recommends that you use less of the Oil then you would of a normal cream. If you put the same amount of Bio Oil that you would normally when using any other oils or creams then your skin may feel oily.
Bio Oil has a lovely smell which comes from the natural ingredients put into Bio Oil. Different flower’s oils are added such as calendula oil, lavender oil and rosemary oil. Not only is this a great smelling Oil but it will keep your skin Moisturised and supplied with plenty of natural ingredients and vitamins.
There are stories all over the internet stating ‘Does Bio Oil work’ ‘Bio Oil for Scar’ ‘Does Bio Oil help scars’ and the answer is YES! When clinical trials are done to prove that it works and significant results are shown, it’s is factual proof that it works. The point I’m trying to get across here is that there is factual proof that Bio Oil will help scars and not only is there clinical trials but there are people write reviews who have used the product and say it works! Below is a table of a 12-week clinical assessment to test the application of Bio-Oil on scars.

You can go to the doctors and pay a fortune to buy creams that supposedly work in removal of scars but they never work and cost too much money! Here you have Bio-Oil that has been proven it works not only by clinical trials but also from the people buying the product.

This Bio Oil will work on scars although on stretch marks it does not have the same significance and therefore if you have a few scars that you want to make lighter that will go away over time buy Bio Oil but for stretch marks this isn’t the right product. I wanted to write this article just to clear some air on the issue of Bio Oil as I think it is given too much criticism even though there is proof from both clinical trials and from the customers who buy Bio Oil.

Over 80% of the people surveyed said Bio Oil significantly healed their scars.

Bio Oil is available from a cheap price of £9.49 for a 200ml bottle if you are living in the Uk or for $8.63 in the USA.

If you find my Hub interesting don't hesitate in leaving a comment, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you

Great article! I'd considered Bio Oil once before, because I have a couple of rather large scars on my legs but I had doubts so I didn't purchase it. I think I will buy some soon, especially with summer just around the corner.

Interesting article, Ive just had surgery 5 wks ago on my nose for skin cancer, its healing well but a bit lumpy and seriously considering Bio Oil to reduce the scarring also for the scar left on my neck where the scin graft was taken so I'll try it on both as soon as my consultant gives me the all clear.
