If there’s one multi-purpose oil that always comes to my mind, it would be Bio-Oil®, of which I have used more than a few bottles over the years. I find it very useful as it can be used on face and body and it’s economical. Their smallest bottle takes me a few months to finish even with daily use.
Now Bio-Oil® is back with a brand new look. After its decade long presence in Malaysia, the popular and well loved multi-purpose oil has revealed a sleeker, contemporary look in its latest facelift. The product, is highly favoured by many for its superior efficacy and is the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in over 24 countries including Malaysia (Nielsen, 2016), UK, Australia and New Zealand. Bio-Oil® is formulated with a blend of vitamins A & E and natural plant oils – lavender, calendula, rosemary and chamomile, together with the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™ which allows the ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin, nourishing skin without leaving an oily residue.
While maintaining its design with their signature white and orange colours, the packaging now includes some brief information listed on the box to accompany each of Bio-Oil®’s many uses. As a product that rose in ranks due to amazing testimonials and a unique packaging strategy which states its many uses, the new packaging expands on the same winning concept while adopting a fresh, clean, no-nonsense look; similar to that of over the counter medications. Despite that, the brilliance of its design also manages to exude an approachable yet elegant aura.
The facelift is strictly physical, so users can be assured of the same great Bio-Oil® formulation that they have come to love and trust over the years. This award-winning formulation with humble beginnings is manufactured and distributed worldwide by Union-Swiss, headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa. It is clinically tested and proven to effectively improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone on the face and body. Apart from that, Bio-Oil® is also highly effective in tackling numerous skin concerns such as ageing and dehydrated skin.
Though high in potency and efficacy, Bio-Oil® has also been proven in various skin tests to be suitable for sensitive skin and is hypoallergenic and non-acnegenic (does not cause acne). It is also perfectly safe to be used on pregnant women to prevent pregnancy-related skin concerns such as stretch marks and pigmentation, to name a few.
This oil keeps my skin hydrated, it’s best absorbed into my skin after my bath when my skin is still moist. It gives my skin that much needed soft and supple feeling. This is one of those must-have anti-ageing skincare/bodycare products and if there is just one oil I need in my beauty stash, it would have to be Bio-Oil® as I like the texture and scent a lot. It’s not too thick and not at all sticky. Most importantly, it is able to hydrate my skin for a long time.
Bio-Oil® is currently available at all leading pharmacies and personal care stores nationwide in pack sizes of 60ml (RM 34.95), 125ml (RM 58.25) and 200ml (RM 79.45).
