Bio‑Oil researches and develops specialist skincare products, using oil to achieve superior product performance. In 1987 Bio‑Oil pioneered using oil to help improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. At the time almost every product on the shelf was either a cream or a lotion, and the product was met with much scepticism. Today the product is the world’s leading scar and stretch mark product. In 2010 Bio‑Oil set up a specialist laboratory dedicated to researching how oil could be used to treat other skin concerns. In 2018 it launched an oil-based formulation for the treatment of dry skin. In Q3 2020 a natural version of Bio‑Oil’s original scar and stretch mark product will be launched. Most of the laboratory’s development work over the past decade will come on stream in 2021. Bio‑Oil focuses exclusively on research and development, with the selling and distribution of its products licensed to leading skincare companies around the world.

Oil has the remarkable ability to improve the skin. How and why, is not completely understood as the benefits of oil are mostly known only through folklore. Bio‑Oil Skincare Oil was one of the first products to submit an oil to clinical trials and prove that it could improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. It was the success of these trials that prompted doctors and pharmacists around the world to begin recommending the product. Today Bio‑Oil Skincare Oil is the world’s leading scar and stretch mark product with over 400 skincare awards to its name. Bio‑Oil is currently working on a natural version of Bio‑Oil Skincare Oil. The product is in clinical trials and is expected to launch in Q3 2020.
