Featured Ingredients

PurCellin Oil – This specially formulated oil was inspired by the natural preen oil produced by ducks, which coats their feathers in water-proof oil and helps them swim. In this product, it aids in product absorption and distribution to ensure the nutrients reach the deep levels of skin.
Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) - Increases the thickness of skin, which aids in skin flexibility. Also helps skin retain water, which keeps it from drying out and forming new stretch marks.
Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) - One of the most well-known skincare ingredients, Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant which helps protect and repair the skin.

In-Depth Review

Bio-Oil is an American-made skin care product which has been helping people who are suffering from stretch marks, scars, and uneven skin tone for over a decade. Its vitamin-rich formula is delivered to the skin via the PurCellin Oil complex, which promises deeper penetration and more efficient nutrient distribution.

Aside from the PurCellin Oil, Bio-Oil includes ingredients like Vitamin A and Vitamin E, which serve to build, protect, and repair skin, and also includes a range of herbal and floral extracts, which serve to soothe and moisturize skin. Those who suffer from allergies and/or acne and those with sensitive skin should take heart, as this product has been designated hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and safe for those with sensitive skin.

As with any kind of product, it helps to do some thorough research prior to purchasing stretch mark cream to make sure you’re getting the most effective product for your money. A great place to start is our product comparison chart, where you can see Bio-Oil compared to its top competition.
