How should it be applied?
It is recommended that you massage it into your skin (body or face) in a circular motion until it has been absorbed fully. Apply it twice per day for at least 12 weeks to see noticeable results. Never apply it to broken skin or open wounds. Only apply to scars once the surface has healed fully.
How does it work?
The ingredients include many vitamins and natural plant oils (which have been used for many years to improve skin condition). These ingredients you will find in many skin care oils and lotions, so what makes this product unique and so effective? PurCellin oil. This makes the other ingredients (the plant oils and vitamins) more easily absorbed by the body.
How long can I keep it on the shelf?
Store it in normal condition and it will not expire within thirty months.
Will it improve dry skin?
Yes. Apply it twice daily and Bio Oil will supplement your skin’s natural oils which may have been lost through the effects of air conditioning and central heating, weather conditions, bathing, contact with chemicals infused water.

Can I buy it as a cream?
No. The only form that it comes in is as an oil. Creams allow oxygen to reduce the strength of the contained vitamins over time. Oil is a much better form of storage long term so the effect of apply it will be powerful whenever you need to use it.

The appearance of all types of existing stretch marks can be improved with this product. It will be more effective on newer stretch marks but the appearance of older ones will also be reduced with prolonged use.
