Bio Oil is a skin care product that is made from the gland oils of ducks. German cosmetic scientist Dieter Beier discovered that this type of oil, called PurCellin Oil, is oxygen free so it can preserve the nutrients added to it, yet it is non greasy and not as thick as a normal oil based product.
Bio Oil is preservative free and contains nourishing ingredients including; Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Chamomile Oil, and Rosemary Oil. These ingredients combine to combat a range of skin care problems including stretch marks, acne, aging skin, dehydrated skin, uneven skin color and more.
