Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is the world’s leading scar and stretch mark product. By harnessing the power of science and nature Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Its potent formulation combines four plant extracts, two powerful vitamins and the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, to create a light and non-greasy dry oil that is easily absorbed into the skin. Bio-Oil Skincare Oil boosts elasticity and helps skin stretch by keeping it hydrated and supple, and promotes skin regeneration by supporting and restoring damaged skin.

Burn scars
Minor scars caused by bites, grazes or acne
Pregnancy stretch marks

Stretch marks caused by rapid weight gain / loss

Application for scars
Massage Bio-Oil Skincare Oil into the scar until fully absorbed. Apply twice daily to help keep the scar hydrated and to soften the scar tissue.

Perfect for all scarring


I used this during my second pregnancy and my stretchmarks were reduced more than after my first. My eldest fell and had really bad scrapes along the side of his face, applied it three times a day and there is NO scarring left over. My husband had a cut on his nose and it healed perfectly using this miracle product.

To prevent Stretch Marks during Pregnancy

Onthatile Sanyane

I started using Bio-Oil as soon as I learned that I was pregnant. I never developed stretch marks during my pregnancy as expected, I believe it is because my skin was always moisturised and protected at all times through using the oil. I applied it once in the morning and evening after taking a bath.

I stopped using it after giving birth because I reached my goal which was the only thing I was worried of. At this point in time I do have stretch marks but they resulted from my fluctuating weight gain and loss, but they are not that bad so it’s nothing to worry about.

Worth the hype!

There is not a single woman in S.A that does not have some experience with this product. Whether it be for stretch marks, dry skin, pigmentation and more. It is a Proudly South African product that is a staple in most women’s beauty cabinets. This is your first go to product once you find out you are pregnant. I sometimes mix the oil with my body lotion when I am feeling especially dry and use it all over. I have also added it to baths in the past along with some lavender drops for luxurious relaxation time. I love the product however, I do wish that they would bring out a pump dispenser bottle. When my hands are oily, I don’t like screwing the cap back on and off as it just gets it everywhere. Other than that, it is a top notch product.

Short term fix

Sunny Norwie

When I started getting stretch marks at first I bought this thinking it would change the appearance.
It did. But only if you applied it every day, I used it after the fact so it lightened them but didn’t prevent them.
When I stopped using it the scars just reappeared.
The price for me is high and the quantity isn’t a lot for daily use. I like that it is non-greasy and absorbs quickly but this was a letdown.

For a short term fix this worked but in the long term it’s just a cover up.

Goodbye Marks. Hello Great Skin!!!


Okay, so let me start by saying I’m a skeptic. In order to crack a nod from me, a product needs to really be something legendary, and I can honestly say this is one of them. I started using Bio-Oil to help reduce the effect of marks and I was amazed the visible results in such a short turnaround time (it was under a week) This product is so versatile that you can use it for a variety of applications. Whether it be a treatment for marks, prevention of scarring from scratches (those with kids will relate) or even an alternative for body lotion (yes ladies..try and apply some over your legs for a silky look)…I would recommend this product to both male and female alike.

i have dry skin and winters in jhb doesn’t help. I was a faithful user of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter and used to receive compliments on my skin all the time. About 5 years ago I stopped using it because the smell interfered with my perfume. So I’ve been in search of something to replace it and it looks like I found it. I had been using it for a couple of weeks and a woman I worked with commented on my arms. She said “Your skin just looks so soft I want to touch your arms”. When I told her what I had been using she said she would go pick some up. But ever since then, I use it every night before I go to bed. I can’t wait to see my skin at the end of the year
