Bio-Oil, the best selling specialist skincare oil has turned 30 by unveiling a rejuvenated new look inspired by a touch of minimalism and elegance to its iconic white and orange colors. The event was held at the Southern Sun Mayfair in Westlands, Nairobi and was dubbed Bio–Oil at 30 – A Story Worth Telling.
There were engaging discussions on how to handle persistent and problematic skin conditions. The panelists were Prof Stanley Khainga who is the Chairman of Kenya Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery and Dr. Joseph Kimani Wanjeri, the plastic & Reconstructive surgeon and a lecturer in the Department of Surgery of the University of Nairobi
Even with the new look, Bio-Oil, which is formulated to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone, has maintained the same groundbreaking formula and added to its range a mini travel size 25 ml bottle making it even simpler to solve all your skincare woes while on the move.
Speaking at the unveiling event held to mark Bio-Oil’s 30th anniversary, Nessy Luciana, Brand Manager at Kim Fay, Bio Oil’s sole distributor in the East Africa Region said, “Bio-Oils new-look pack is an aesthetic enhancement that we hope will resonate with our customers at a new level. We are especially excited about the tamper-proof seal at the top of the pack and the inclusion of a Kiswahili product description section on the pack.”
Bio-Oil has been formulated to maximise the skin’s elasticity and is made from vitamins A and E, calendula, lavender, rosemary and chamomile oils as well as the unique ingredient PurCellin Oil™ – a dry, non-greasy oil – which helps the ingredients to be absorbed into the skin.
Talking about Bio-Oil’s effect on skin, Cosmetic Scientist, Dr. John Knowlton says, “When Bio-Oil is put on the skin it creates a film on the surface of the skin that traps moisture into the body, ensuring that it does not escape into the environment. This makes the skin much softer, supple and plump in appearance. Bio-Oil is also easy to spread; such that with just two drops one can immediately see and feel the skin improve.”
Since it was developed in 1987 by a young German chemist Dieter Beiyer to treat his persistent dry skin condition, Bio-Oil has grown from a product sold in one country to a product available in 125 countries. 30 years later, Bio Oil is the most recommended specialist skincare product by doctors and loved by millions of customers around the world.
Bio-Oil has been proven* to help in the following ways:
- Scars: Improves the appearance of new and old scars, whether from acne, accidental burns, insect bites, scratches or chickenpox.
- Stretch marks: Helps to prevent the formation of stretch marks during periods of rapid weight gain or loss; also helps to improve the appearance of existing stretch marks.
- Dehydrated skin: Helps to replenish the skin’s natural oils, which can be stripped by environmental factors.
- Uneven skin tone: Helps to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone caused by hormonal changes, skin lighteners or excessive sun exposure.
- Ageing skin: Helps to smooth and tone aging, sagging and wrinkled skin on both face and body.
For the best results, Bio-Oil should be built into one’s daily skin care routine and applied twice daily for a minimum of three months on dry or damp skin on the face and body after bathing, showering or cleansing. Bio-Oil is absorbed quickly by the skin and doesn’t feel greasy after use.
Bio Oil displays the Skin Health Alliance dermatologically accredited mark to show that it has been independently verified by experts as a brand that believes in taking research seriously and promoting healthy skin.
