Bio Oil has been hailed as a wonder skin treatment. For those of you that are not already aware it is a healing skin care that greatly improves the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tones. Already Bio Oil has won a staggering 85 skincare awards and as a result has quickly become the number one selling scar and stretch mark product, and is now marketed in 11 countries. Bio Oil is rich in many natural ingredients including vitamins A and E, Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil, and Chamomile Oil. Bio Oil is a vegan product and is suitable for individuals with sensitive skin, it is extremely beneficial for anyone that has ageing skin, dehydrated skin, pregnancy stretch marks, and scars.
Despite all of the hype there still seems to be some controversy about just how effective bio oil really is. The cosmetics and personal care industry is one that turns over billions every year, and it is important to remember that a lot of activity is focused on sales and marketing, and the ultimate objective of this is to further business. In some cases it might be true that this means providing the consumer with an effective product that meets a genuine need, but making a profit is always the motivation. Furthermore it is important to remember that a products reputation can exceed it, and sometimes a product will become successful simply because people like it, creating a word of mouth reputation.
As mentioned there are a range of applications for bio oil, and one of the key applications that have been marketed is to help relieve stretch marks. Stretch marks can be quite severe but it is actually quite surprising just how much the body can do alone. The regenerative process is actually relatively effective and by optimising the body for this some significant effects can be achieved. For instance keeping the skin well moisturised around the affected area will help to encourage blood flow avoiding any further stress and encouraging the healing process. Between the moisture and massaging Bio oil could certainly aid the regenerative process.
To conclude it is most likely that Bio Oil simply aids the bodily processes that will happen anyway, helping the body’s natural repair mechanisms to work faster; the general approach of regularly applying moisturiser to the skin is always going to beneficial. However this being said Bio oil has been praised as an effective deterrent for the aging of skin, which is a natural bodily process too.
