Bio Oil is a blend of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil, which changes the overall formulation consistency, making it light and non-greasy, ensuring that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts are easily absorbed.

Clinical trials have shown that Bio‑Oil helps to improve the appearance of scars. For best results Bio-Oil should be applied twice daily for a minimum of three months. Massaging Bio‑Oil into the skin in a circular motion ensures it is fully absorbed.

Cosmetic research teams and Scientists have approved the remarkable effects of Bio oil on the skin. Recently Dr. John Knowlton, a cosmetic scientist noted:

“When Bio-Oil is put on the skin it creates a film on the surface of the skin that traps moisture into the body, ensuring that it does not escape into the environment. This makes the skin much softer, supple and plump in appearance.  Bio-Oil is also easy to spread; such that with just two drops one can immediately see and feel the skin improve.”

All Bio-Oil packaging is recyclable and all paper materials are certified to be in accordance with sustainable forest management practices. Bio Oil has been clinically and dermatologically tested. No harmful emissions were emitted during the manufacture of Bio Oil. Bio Oil in Kenya is available in beauty stores and supermarkets. It comes in packagings of 25ml, 60ml, 125ml and 200ml.
