The journey to healthy skin and confidence, starts and ends with oil.

Celebrate all the changes motherhood brings. 

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, caesarean scars, uneven skin tone and itchiness. 

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. 

The journey to confidence starts with oil.

Skin by design loves oil, so making oil part of your daily pregnancy skincare routine helps keep skin healthy and prevents future skin issues. 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.  

So what does this all mean? It means that our skin doesn’t just love oil, it needs it, every day. Only oil-based skincare can effectively improve skin health because oil nourishes, restores and protects skin, it gives skin life. 

Skincare that works.

No brand understands the relationship between skin and oil better than Bio-Oil.

Bio-Oil believes that the journey to healthy skin and confidence, starts and ends with oil. Bio-Oil’s range of oil-based skincare has been formulated for results and designed to work with the skin to deliver optimal skin health.

Trusted by mothers, and recommended by gynaecologists and midwives for more than 30 years, Bio-Oil Skincare Oil gives your skin exactly what it needs throughout your pregnancy journey so that it can stretch and recover beautifully. 

Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is the world’s leading scar and stretch mark product. It is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, making it the ideal pregnancy skincare solution. Its unique formulation contains a potent combination of 4 plant extracts, 2 vitamins and breakthrough ingredient PurCellin OilTM

And now with the introduction of Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural), Bio-Oil has harnessed the power of science and nature to match the efficacy of its original Skincare Oil – with a product made entirely from natural ingredients.

Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural) is an all-natural specialist product clinically proven to improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Its 100% natural formulation contains a powerful combination of 3 base oils, 4 specialist oils, 2 vitamin oils and 5 plant extracts.

Bio-Oil Skincare Oil and NEW Skincare Oil (Natural) are light, non-greasy and absorb easily. They help boost skin’s elasticity by keeping it supple and hydrated, and promote skin regeneration by supporting and restoring damaged skin.

For best results during pregnancy, apply Bio-Oil Skincare Oil or Bio-Oil 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 itchiness and improve uneven skin tone. For caesarean scars, massage Bio-Oil Skincare Oil or Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural) into the scar until fully absorbed. To ensure the scar matures into a thin, faded line, use Bio-Oil Skincare Oil or Bio-Oil Skincare Oil (Natural) in conjunction with MicroporeTM tape.

Bio-Oil’s range of skincare oils gives skin what it needs to be healthy and resilient so you can celebrate all the changes motherhood brings.
