It is translucent oil formula.


1)It contains botanical extracts and is rich in vitamins which is good for skin.

2)It is hypo-allergenic which means it is suitable for sensitive skin. 

3)It basically promotes collagen production and maintains the elasticity of scar tissue.

4)It really works on stretch-marks.

5)It also works on burnt scars,accident scars,surgery scars, wound scars etc.

6)It is good moisturiser for normal and dry skin.

8)It can used on face and body.

9)It meets all safety and quality standards hence safe on pregnant women too.

10)It is available in all countries.


1) It is highly comedogenic and not suitable for oily and acne prone skin.

2)It does not work on acne-scars/blemishes.

3)It is expensive for 60ml.

4)Easy availability in India is an issue.

Directions for Use:

Take a little quantity of oil.Apply and massage on the required areas for a few minutes once or twice a day.

Final Verdict:

I got to know about Bio-oil a year back when I was searching was scar-removal options.All the reviews were positive so I bought online from and it was quite pricey.Now since it is available in India,I thought I will do a review. I bought this for healing a burnt scar on my hand which happened while making puris :( . I used it for 3-4 months and I must say I am pleasantly surprised by the results, it hardly visible now. I haven't used it for stretch-marks because Palmer's Cocoa Butter took take of that,you can check out the review here. Guys please note  its a strict no-no for oily and acne prone skin,do not apply especially on face.Overall a decent product but remember healing of any scars takes months.If you have tried silicon gels and others with no improvement,then bio-oil is a worth a shot!

My Rating:4/5
