Bio-Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.

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.

This specialist skincare oil is recommended for
Surgical / caesarean scars
Burn scars
Minor scars caused by bites, grazes or acne
Pregnancy stretch marks
Adolescent 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. Use Bio-Oil Skincare Oil in conjunction with MicroporeTM tape for surgical or caesarean scars, to ensure the scar matures into a thin, faded line. Do not use on broken skin.

Application for stretch marks

Acne Scars


I absolutely love Bio-Oil for my face just before bed time,
I find that it works very well for acne scars or pigmentation issues.

I read in a previous review about stretch marks from growing to fast, I had the same issue and bio-oil did not help me much with the stretch marks.



Bio-Oil has helped me with pigmentation issues and acne scars.
Love using it for my face.

There are Better Scar Oils

Most people think that this is the only oil on the market that treats stretch marks and scars.
I grew very quickly as a teenager and started to develop bad stretch marks on my thighs. I used this oil twice a day without fail. It did not prevent my scars from appearing but did fade them from purple/blue to a lighter beige colour.

I was later introduced to the Environ oil when I got a second degree burn on my thigh. This oil is a combination of Vitamin A, C & E. This oil made my scar disappear completely. It is a much more effective option if you are looking to treat scars.

From the time I remember my mother was a Justine sales consultant and we always purchased the Justine tissue oil. For like three to four years now my mother is no longer a Justine sales consultant and since then we have been buying the Bio-Oil and it is equally effective and of good quality.

I was always so afraid of what my stomach would look like should I fall pregnant. I have horrible stretch marks on my lower back and upper thighs. I started using bio-oil at the very beginning of my first pregnancy. Two kids later and not a single stretch mark on my tummy. It truly is amazing. After applying the product you have to wait a bit as it can leave oil marks on your clothes. It has a pleasant smell. I have recommended it to both friends and family.

This has helped me get rid of acne scars. It did take a few months but the wait was totally worth it! I’d definitely recommend this product for anyone wanting to get rid of those acne scars. This is an amazing product ❤️
