Uses of Bio-Oil

What is Bio-Oil?

Bio-Oil is a specialist skincare product widely known for reducing the appearance of stretch marks. This unique formula contains a ‘breakthrough’ ingredient called PurCellin Oil combined with Vitamin A, E and a mixture of few essential oils – Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary and Chamomile. Each ingredient brings a healing property to the body.
