Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel
Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel is the next generation in the treatment of dry skin. It improves on the existing dry skin technology of creams, lotions and body butters by replacing the in-active water in these formulations with oil, resulting in a product that is 100% active in treating dry skin. The formulation is delivered in a breakthrough new gel format.
Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel results will vary from individual to individual.
How long to use
Bio-Oil® Dry Skin gel is designed to both prevent and treat dry skin conditions. The product may be used as frequently as needed and on ongoing basis.
For maximum absorption, Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel should be applied to cleansed skin after showering. If applying a moisturizer, sun protection lotion or other face cream, only do so once Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel has been completely absorbed into the skin.
Gel – a new way to treat dry skin
Typically, dry skin is treated using creams, lotions and body butters. These products are known as emulsions which are made by combining oil and water using an emulsifier. The average emulsion contains around 70% water, which is inactive in treating dry skin. Therefore an opportunity existed for Bio-Oil to create a more active formula which would replace inactive water with oil. Technically it is very difficult to make a product predominately of oil and only 3% water.
The answer lay in creating a gel. Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel is made with 87% oil, 10% humectants and only 3% of water.
