It's a fact of life that as we get older, our skin produces less oil and becomes drier. We apply various forms of moisturizers to combat the dryness in a desperate attempt to restore our skin to the beauty and shine it used to have. But in this day of increasing awareness about the toxicity of chemical ingredients in skin care, what products are safe to use? Here’s some information about the harmful ingredients that may be in your skin care and the benefits of natural ingredients you could be using.

What’s the Problem With Synthetic Ingredients?

Ever wonder why your favorite fragrance-filled hand creams just don’t seem to be working? It can be worse than that – they can be bad for you, too. The FDA does not regulate the safety of all ingredients in skin care, so little is known about the possible harmful effects of many synthetic ingredients used in certain commercial skin creams and lotions.

Such ingredients are of course not going to nourish the skin. More and more, consumers are looking for skin care products that are safe to use while also nourishing to the skin. That means ingredients that are naturally occurring and beneficial to your overall health.

How is Bio-Oil® Different?

Bio-Oil® is a unique skin care oil that diminishes the appearance of various skin problems. The natural ingredients in Bio-Oil® are used to promote healing in skin, and to address issues like dry skin, scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.

Unlike many synthetic creams and lotions, Bio-Oil® is not diluted with water. It has natural plant extracts as well as vitamins suspended in an oil base. This base contains PurCellin Oil™, which aids in skin penetration, as far down as the dermis – the middle skin layer. No greasy residue is left behind as Bio-Oil® is absorbed.

Bio-Oil® uses primarily natural ingredients which benefit the skin when they are absorbed into the skin’s layers. Ingredients include calendula oil, chamomile oil, lavender oil, rosemary oil, and PurCellin Oil™, as well as vitamins A and E. Many of these natural ingredients have been used by women, men and children for centuries, without harm. In fact, these ingredients are nurturing to the body and help hydrate skin.

Benefits of Natural Ingredients in Bio-Oil®

Calendula oil treats skin cells that are damaged, sensitive and sunburned. Inflammation is diminished. Calendula oil can also fight minor skin infections and rashes as well as skin irritation.

Chamomile oil soothes the skin, decreasing inflammation. Sensitive skin benefits most from chamomile oil.

Lavender oil is a natural antiseptic that calms and soothes sensitive skin. It also provides aromatherapy benefits with a delicate fragrance, encouraging relaxation.

Rosemary oil is a mild antiseptic, which soothes, refreshes and conditions the skin.

PurCellin Oil™ makes Bio-Oil® more easily absorbed as it reduces the product’s thickness. Inspired by the preen, or oil, gland of ducks, PurCellin Oil™ softens and soothes skin.

Vitamin A enhances the skin's elasticity, texture and tone. It helps promote the creation of new collagen as well.

Vitamin E defends skin against damage from free radicals and premature aging. It increases the moisture of the epidermis, the top skin layer, contributing to greater smoothness and softness of the skin.

Bio-Oil® is appropriate for any skin type. It is also acnegenic and hypoallergenic.

Replace those chemical-filled creams and lotions with ingredients that only provide benefits for your body and well-being. To learn more about how Bio-Oil® can help nourish and refresh your skin, visit: http://bio-oilusa.com/en-us.
