Bio Oil Reviews | Bio Oil Ingredients
Here are some Bio Oil Reviews we found online. Do you want to put Bio Oil on your skin? What are Bio Oil ingredients?
As you can imagine, I get a number of people coming into the shop asking me specifically about Bio Oil as there is just so much advertising out there about it. It really is a product promoted as “The Product for scarring”. Now I don’t necessarily have a problem with Bio Oil itself, but when I look at the ingredients I find it hard to see why we would ever want to put this on our body !
The first ingredient in it is “Mineral Oil”, a byproduct of petroleum. I have a book called the "Cosmetic Ingredient Glossary" that defines mineral oil as “A heavy film-forming oil and a clear liquid mixture of hydrocarbons and a byproduct of petroleum." It is unsuitable for lotions or shampoos, as mineral oil coats our skin.
Mineral Oil acts as a layer that’s difficult to absorb & can clog the pores, which slows the skin's ability to eliminate toxins.This is such a problem, as our skin is one of our biggest eliminative organs in the body.
I was determined to suffer through the suggested four months even though the scent made me absolutely nauseous. And after several days, I noticed the awful reaction on my belly where I had rubbed the oil in. Awful. Then, I read the ingredients in detail: Mineral oil? Soy? Essential oils? It was a sensitive skin sufferer's nightmare! Serves me right for not checking the ingredients prior to use, but I'm sure glad I didn't try it on my face!
Write me and let me know how you use CapriClear....
