Bio Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for aging and dehydrated skin. Bio Oil has won 77 skincare awards and has become the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 11 countries since its global rollout began in 2002.
Originally developed by Union Swiss in 1987, the Bio Oil formulation was the brainchild of scientist Dieter Beier, the owner of Union Swiss at the time. His experience developing skincare products in the 70’s and 80’s was that oil worked best as a base for skincare products, especially those that included vitamins and plant extracts. Creams and lotions, which have water as their main ingredient, did not seem to have the same efficacy. Following his instinct, he launched Bio Oil onto the market as a “skin tonic”.
