The price seems to change quite often on Amazon but any price under £10 is good.

How good is this for stretch marks in reality?
#5
does it really work?
#6

Not if they are from over-eating (_;)

Have used on very visible neck scars and it worked a treat in 4-6 weeks.
#7

#8
I recommend this product, I've been using it for years :)

Not good at all. Firstly, its biologically impossible to stretch skin and prevent stretch marks by using moisturising oil.
How anybody thinks bio oil can stimulate the production of collagen/elastin is beyond me. I dare say a Nobel price in medicine awaits someone who can.
Secondly roughly 50-55% of women dont develop stetch marks during pregnancy. These are the women who may use bio oil, think it works, then rave about it on ill-informed forums like HUKD

I use bio oil as a moisturiser and find it's really lovely, very easily absorbed, smells nice and very moisturising.
#12
Defo use this if you're pregnant, use it 3 times daily before you start to put on any baby weight and you'll not get any stretch marks, at least I didn't.
#13
niiice, does this stuff work on spot scarring?
#14
Any reduction in the appearance of a scar when using this stuff is mainly down to the massaging, which breaks up the scar tissue. Whether thats of interest to anyone i don't know!
#15
I was told by a dermatologist that it's best to wet the skin before using oil and massage in. Applying oil to dry skin will keep it dry abeit oily. A healthy diet is more important.

correct
so why spend ten quid on bio oil?
Baby oil is just as effective and costs one tenth of the price. This is a marketing con and there is a surprising number of gullible people around here

After an assault I was left with a permanent facial scar. This has worked wonders and reduced the visibility of it massively.

Do you have any experience or facts to back this up?, or do we treat this comment as spurious drivel not relevent to the main body of discussion.

I do speak from experience and it does if used correctly make the skin more supple, as a result less likely to to cause any form of stretch mark.

Do you work for bio oil. He doesn't need to back it up, it's common sense and I'm sure you will find any dermatologist will 'back this up for you'! Like another poster said, it's playing on people being desperate and gullible enough to believe their drivel. Any type of oil will keep the skin supple and possibly aid in reducing them, so buy some johnsons at the pound shop and save yourself a fortune.

Thousands of women have used this during pregnancy and thousands still got stretchmarks I can assure you.

Is it any good to moisture a hair?

i do suffer from stretch marks but used this and the cocoa butter moisturiser and never got a single stretch mark during either of my pregnancies. even if its just the massage and a moisturiser that did the trick it doesnt matter.if bio oil makes you feel better and encourages you to apply regually then job done and worth the money

lol not just me; but every science-literate person who can see though snake oil products like this.
Bio Oil once made a TV advert making the usual outlandish cliams about scars etc, fortunately you have to adhere to certain standards when you make such claims in advertising.
Predictably, the advertsing standards authority hauled them over the coals:

The ads must not appear again in their current form. We told Union-Swiss to remove the direct claim "Bio-Oil helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone" from future ads and also told them to avoid making implied claims along those lines.

"The expert said, while the study seemed to be well performed - a mix of minor and surgical scars were treated - it suffered from not being double blinded and there was no control for a placebo effect. Although Union-Swiss believed a single-blinded trial was sufficient to support the claim, the expert maintained that a double-blind trial controlled for some of the potential pitfalls that could arise with single or non-blinded trials and was therefore a more robust methodology. He said the mean results appeared to have been skewed by a few subjects recording relatively large changes. The majority of scars showed no change or worsening after 12 weeks. The expert concluded that the evidence was not sufficient to support a breakthrough claim. "

"While we noted the study results showed a trend towards a slight effect, we understood that those results were obtained by way of a self-assessment study. We noted, however, the study was single blinded and there was no control for a placebo effect. In view of that, we considered that the study was insufficiently robust to support the claim and concluded that it could mislead. "

"The expert said the magnitude of change recorded was small and the number of subjects demonstrating no change at all was high; the 'best' result was from the self-assessment analysis which was not a reliable indicator in a single-blinded trial. He concluded that the evidence was not sufficiently robust to support the claim. "
