A Review of the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil

Sara Kettler

With the growth of the skincare and beauty industry, people have been introduced to a myriad of beauty and skincare products.

Thus, if a beauty product seems to get a cult-like following, it is either because of enticing packaging, interesting adverts, or the efficacy of the skincare product. For the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil, it is the last option. 

Many people have been stuck on the body oil after the first use and this has caused the product to get to our radar. In this article, we will examine the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil, touching on its unique features, its ingredients, and how to get the best out of the oil.  

The Bio-Oil Skincare Oil

The first thing that comes to mind upon seeing the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil box is simplicity. The box contains only the oil bottle which has a screw lid that guards a small spout through which the oil comes out. You need not squeeze the bottle to get the oil, all you need to do is tilt the bottle a bit and the oil comes running unto your palm.

The smell of the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is as simple as its packaging. It has a herbal-floral aroma that seems so distinguishable and distinct. You cannot miss it. The oil also comes in different sizes. Therefore, if you wish to try out a smaller bottle before going for the largest size, there is an ideal bottle size for you.

As with any beauty product, the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is a function of its ingredients. The ingredients dictate the functions and efficacy of the oil.

The first and most important ingredient used in the manufacture of Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is Purcellin oil. Also known as Cetearyl ethyl hexanoate, Purcellin oil is lab-made fatty alcohol. It works just the way the natural oil produced in the human body does, and this includes the protection of the skin, like these natural oils, do. 

The next ingredient is mineral oil. While there has been a lot of concern about the safety of mineral oils and their use on human skin, cosmetic grade mineral oil is certified safe. And this is the type of mineral oil used in the production of Bio-Oil Skincare Oil.

The function of the mineral oil is to serve as an emollient in the moisturizing function of the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil.

The Bio-Oil Skincare Oil also contains tocopheryl acetate, a type of Vitamin E. its function is to moisturize and protect the skin.

The same goes for another type of Vitamin A found in the oil, retinyl palmitate. This type of vitamin A protects the skin by stimulating the production of collagen.

Finally, there are other myriads of botanical and natural oils such as lavender, sunflower, calendula, and rosemary. The Bio-Oil Skincare Oil also contains fragrance to provide an enticing aroma for users.  

Unique Features of the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil

Now that we have a list of the ingredients contained in the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil, let’s examine some of the unique features and functionalities of the oil. They include;

Works for Stretch Marks

One of the major selling points for Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is the claim that it removes scars and stretch marks. But how true is this claim? Looking at the set of ingredients present in the oil, it is clear that the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil can hydrate, soothe, and strengthen the skin.

While all of these functions have nothing to do with the removal of stretch marks, it does help the appearance of the skin, and by extension, the scars and stretch marks.

Therefore, there is no substantial evidence to show that the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil removes stretch marks and scars, we can only confirm that it helps with the appearance of the scars and stretch marks, so much that you won’t have to worry about them.  

Lighter than Most Oils

One of the issues that most people have with the use of oils as beauty or skincare products is their stickiness. Most oils are heavy, thick and as a result, leave a sticky residue after use.

However, the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is exempt from this feature as the oil itself is light and runs easily. This means that you can use the oil without having to worry about sticky residues.

For instance, it works perfectly as a cuticle oil. You can use the oil to hydrate your nails or the skin around them. By squeezing a drop or two, you can hydrate your nails when they feel too dry.

The oil also works well for a soaking bath. By adding a few drops of the oil into your bath, you will enjoy a chilling and relaxing bath soak, all thanks to the sunflower seed oil and the lavender present in the oil.

It is almost impossible to come across a beauty or skincare product that doesn’t have a side effect. There are no reported side effects from users of the oil. The oil has been in the market for a while and there has hardly been any report of a side effect to the use of the oil.

However, if a user is allergic to any of the ingredients used to make the Bio-Oil Skincare Oil, there could be an adverse reaction on the skin. In such cases, it is advisable to stop using the oil until the opinion of a professional dermatologist has been sought.
