This was from the site:

"...As a teenager I suffered from acne, which left me with terrible crater-like scars all over my face and back. For years I had to endure the embarrassment - nothing that I tried helped and no amount of make-up could conceal them. Then about a year ago (I am now 27) I heard about Bio-Oil from my sister who had used it on an op scar. She was raving about it but I was reluctant to use an oil on my face, because my skin is still prone to breakouts. Well…it's a year later, and I am a different person. Some of the smaller scars have gone completely, while the more severe ones have faded significantly. The texture and condition of my skin is just generally so much better. I was so surprised to find that it is amazingly gentle, light and not at all greasy."

Seems on the website it helps with keloids, not indents.

In the final report summary, I saw this

A 4-week user-trial to test the effectiveness of Bio-Oil for scars was conducted in the United Kingdom by Ayton-Moon Consultancy. Scar ages ranged from a few months to 10 years, with improvements being recorded throughout. Each of the 3 scar types (raised, flat and depressed) responded equally favourably to Bio-Oil.

it claims to help depressed scars too. Wondering if it is true..

Haha...Not till I run out of my other stuff... O:)

Actually it is not sold in the US and that map isn't very helpful either.

I found it here, I tend to save all this information in different categories. This is just going into my skin products folder. It s not in my buy folder yet. O:)


I have various skin information folders too. biggrin.gif

Yeah i'm sure they would sell it anywhere in Australia! But there is a pharmacy website in the thread that someone posted that ships this product world wide i think?

I got this letter from Bio-oil about where to get the products if you are in the States:

Dear Misty,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and for your interest
in Bio-Oil.

As you probably know, Bio-Oil is a South African product that is being
rolled out internationally, starting with the English-speaking
countries. It was launched in the UK in April, Australia in October and
New Zealand in December. We hope to launch Bio-Oil in the USA and Canada
within 18 months, and will keep you posted on our website as to any
developments in this regard.

Regrettably, we do not have a mail order service. However, I am aware of
two online pharmacies based in the UK, www.westons.com and
www.garden.co.uk, that apparently sell Bio-Oil. I hope that they will be
able to offer you a positive response.


Yours sincerely
Claire Thring
