Give your skin what it needs every step of the way.

Taking care of your skin pre- and post-pregnancy makes a huge difference to your confidence as your body starts changing. The biggest pregnancy skincare concerns are stretch marks, uneven skin tone, itchy dry skin, and caesarean scars. Discover the powerful role oil can play in preparing and protecting your skin for all these changes.

When it comes to caring for your skin during pregnancy, prevention is better than cure. A recent survey revealed; 60% of pregnant women only start treating their skin concerns in the 3rd trimester – but this is too late. Your skin starts changing from the beginning of your pregnancy, so that is the best time to start caring for it.

Oil gives skin new life.

Only oil can truly nourish, restore, and protect your skin. Because only oil goes deeper to lock in moisture to help your skin function. Oil mimics skin’s natural oils, so when oils are applied to the skin, they are easily absorbed and assist in restoring skin’s natural outer oily layer – locking essential moisture in the skin.

Says Bio-Oil research directors Justin and David Letschert “You can avoid stretch marks by applying product and allowing your skin to expand when you are pregnant. We use an oil to treat scars and stretch marks, because it’s the best medium to use, because skin loves oil. When you apply an oil to skin, your skin accepts it and all the powerful ingredients inside the product can get into the skin and do their job.”

So as you prepare to bring new life into the world, give your skin new life by making oil part of your daily skincare routine from the start of your pregnancy to help keep your skin healthy and prevent future skin issues.

Powerful formulations. Powerful results.

Bio-Oil’s range of specialist skincare oils gives skin what it needs, from bump to baby, so that you can discover hydrated, supple, and resilient skin through the power of oil, every step of your pregnancy journey.

Says Bio-Oil research director Justin Letschert: “We wanted to be the first to make a performance product in skincare from natural ingredients, and that is what we did.”

Formulated with a powerful combination of 3 base oils, 4 specialist oils, 2 vitamin oils and 5 plant extracts. Each ingredient was selected on its ability to deliver the same results as the original Skincare Oil – to be effective in treating scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.

For best results during pregnancy, apply Bio-Oil Skincare Oil or Skincare Oil (Natural) as soon as you find out that you’re pregnant. Massage into your breasts, abdomen and hips twice daily to help skin stretch, relieve itchy dry skin and improve uneven skin tone. For caesarean scars, massage one of Bio-Oil’s specialist skincare oils into the scar until fully absorbed. To ensure the scar matures into a thin, faded line, use Bio-Oil Skincare Oil or Skincare Oil (Natural) in conjunction with Micropore™ tape.
