SPECIALIST MOISTURIZER FOR:
  • SCARS
  • STRETCH MARKS
  • UNEVEN SKIN TONE
  • AGING SKIN
  • DEHYDRATED SKIN
BioOil® is a specialist moisturizing oil that smoothes and tones scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for aging and dehydrated skin.

The Bio-Oil® formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, which changes the formulation's overall consistency, making it light and non-greasy, ensuring that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts is easily absorbed.

It is recommended that Bio-Oil® be applied twice daily for a minimum of 3 months. It should be massaged in a circular motion until fully absorbed. During pregnancy, BioOil® should be applied from the start of the second trimester to areas that are prone to stretch marks such as the abdomen, breasts, lower back, buttocks, hips and thighs.

African Black Soap: A Natural Option for Skin, Hair, and Body Care

African Black Soap: A Natural Option for Skin, Hair, and Body Care
African Black Soap: A Natural Option for Skin, Hair, and Body Care: Main Image
African black soap is used to cleanse the face, body, and hair, and is promoted as a natural remedy to relieve scalp itchiness and irritation
African black soap appears to have been around for centuries, as a natural skin, hair, and body care product in various countries in Africa. Now it’s hitting mainstream beauty care aisles in the United States and Europe.

There is no "official" recipe for African black soap, and there are dozens of varieties that vary from soap maker to soap maker. Nevertheless, there seems to be some consensus that African black soap is made from the ashes of plants, including plantain skins, cocoa pods, palm leaves, and shea tree bark. These ingredients are sun dried; roasted; and then water, oils and fats (such as palm oil, coconut oil, shea butter, and palm kernel oil), and sometimes honey, are added. The mixture is then cured for at least two weeks.

African black soap is used to cleanse the face, body, and hair, and is promoted as a natural remedy to relieve scalp itchiness and irritation. It is said to address skin conditions ranging from acne and oily skin, to eczema, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and razor bumps. Because African black soap is made with a variety of plant ingredients, it also can have exfoliating properties when used on the body and face. While none of these claims have been validated with controlled studies, one small study suggests the soap may have good antifungal properties.

African black soap should be used with caution in terms of applying directly on broken skin or skin areas affected by infections, psoriasis, or other serious skin conditions. Some of the plant ingredients may be irritating under these conditions. Some African black soaps have added synthetic fragrances or essential oils, and these may irritate sensitive skin as well; test on a small area of your skin before using on your entire face or body. Opt for a fair trade product if you have concerns about how the soap is produced, or about how the soap producers are treated and paid for their work.

      Comments about BIO OIL BioOil®:

      You have to apply the oil twice a day for it to be effective. I don't always have time to do that, but I have been using it for months (almost done with second bottle) and I only see a slight decrease in color. The stretchmarks haven't gone away at all, they have merely lightened in color. And that's not good enough for me!
