I've heard that 'Bio Oil' is a good moisturiser for flaky, dry and sore skin. Does anyone have any experience with this product?

My girlfriend used it for a while, thought it was ok, but nothing miraculous. She resorted in going back to more readily available, less branded oils like almond oil etc. along with aromatherapy oils.

I tried Bio Oil and I came out in a rash.

My consultant suggested olive oil to soften my scar tissue following surgery and I'm really pleased with the result. Bio oil is way expensive for what it is, there are more natural options which do a better job in my opinion.

I have tried Bio Oil for stretchmarks and I found that it does work, although you have to keep using it for a long time. It moisturises nicely, too.

I'd also heard claims about stretch marks but it was in connection with surgical scarring I was most interested...

Hi mac,

You could try Bio Oil for the scarring but you'd need to use it over a long period of time to really notice the difference.

I'm too impatient for long-term trialling.

Bio Oil has a misleading name. It contains parabens & various other chemical undesirables. You'd be better off with a much safer & purer product such as Vitamin E oil or other plant-based natural product. If your skin is dry & flaky then you should be also taking fish oils or Omega 3,6 & 9 since the problem needs addressing internally, not just externally by topical application.

All products are chemicals of one sort or another - even plant extracts.

I'm not persuaded that oils etc. taken internally would necessarily deal with my query, that of reducing surgical scar noticeability. Topically all moisturising products essentially penetrate no more than skin-deep so application of any that is easily absorbed to that depth should result in superficial improvement of skin that's dry or slightly flaky.

There may be good health reasons for some supplement oils but I remain to be convinced that a good skin is a likely outcome.

I also used bio oil and I got rash ;/. I thought it was all natural and later I found out about all chemicals that are in this product so I stopped using it. Instead, I searched for some REALLY natural oils and I found some on organic beauty blogs. I was skeptical at first and I was afraid of using oils, but eventually I decided to give it a try and I bought Argan Oil from Virginic ().
Have you ever heard of it? It seems to be a new natural brand, but so far I can recommend it with all my heart. This oil is fantastic and what I really like is the fact that it really has no chemicals inside. No chemicals = no rash AND happy skin 🙂
