Added Information about the company behind Bio Oil:
Launched by Union-Swiss in 1987, Bio-Oil is the result of two decades of research into oil-based vitamin-enriched skincare. The research focused primarily on solving the following problem: while oils provide the optimal storage environment for vitamins and other active ingredients, they are generally thick and sticky in nature and, as such, do not absorb well. The result is that the active ingredients largely remain in the oily residue on the skin surface and do not penetrate to where they are required.
Bio-Oil successfully overcame this problem through the inclusion of the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil. PurCellin Oil dramatically improves the consistency of the mix, making the oil light and non-greasy, thereby ensuring the most effective absorption of the key beneficial ingredients.
