Stretch marks can occur as a result of rapid weight gain whereby the skin does not have time to adjust to the speed at which you need it to stretch and so it tears causing what looks like stretch marks, for example during pregnancy or even through weight training. Scars occur due to the skin attempting to heal a wound but producing too much collagen at the site which then produces the scar effect. Bio Oil for Stretch Marks and Scars contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil which reduces the thickness of the formulation which makes Bio Oil easily absorbed and helps ensure the targeted delivery of its key ingredients: Vitamins A and E, and the natural plant oils Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary and Chamomile to affected areas.
Due to its formula Bio Oil 125ml is easily absorbed and non-greasy. It is hypoallergenic, contains no preservatives and is suitable for all skin types. It is even formulated for use on the face and body, and has a number of benefits:
Bio-Oil for stretch marks and scars helps to reduce the appearance of all scars (both new and old) by improving the condition of skin with scar tissue.
Bio-Oil helps alleviate the discomfort frequently associated with scars, such as tightness and itchiness, as well as relieving the dryness.
Bio-Oil helps keep the skin as elastic as possible, thereby helping to prevent stretch marks from developing during periods of rapid change in body size such as pregnancy, adolescence and weight loss.
Bio-Oil also helps reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks.
On uneven skin tone Bio-Oil helps to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and promote an even skin tone. Bio-Oil helps to smooth firm and nourish ageing and wrinkled skin.
On dehydrated skin Bio-Oil provides intensive lubrication, helping to relieve discomfort and improving the appearance of the affected area.
