Bio-Oil is much loved for it’s incredible moisturising properties and the product is basically everyone’s go-to for fighting stretch marks. But now, in a rather exciting move, comes the next generation in the treatment of dry skin Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel. The brand has added it’s first new product to the Bio-Oil range in 30 years! Specifically designed to combat dehydrated skin, the new Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is here to take hydration to a whole new level .
The New Bio Oil Gel
A pink, jelly-like oil-gel hybrid that’s served up in a tub that’s not dissimilar to those aqueous cream tubs sold in our local pharmacies, the new launch is set to tackle the needs of dry skin.
The occlusive gel’s texture, though, is it’s biggest selling point; jelly moisturiser formulations are a trend we’ve already seen on the rise, hailed for their lightweight and fast-absorbing properties – exactly what you need if you’re struggling with the often sore condition of dry skin on the body like I do, especially on my legs!
The Science Behind it…
According to Cosmetic Scientist, John Knowlton, “The unique design of Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel means that almost every ingredient in the formulation is “active”, unlike conventional creams and lotions which have high percentages of “inactive” water. The combination of Bio-Oil® Skincare Oil ingredients, Shea Butter and Lanolin form an occlusive layer on the surface of the skin, replacing the barrier properties of lost natural skin lipids, whilst the combination of Urea, Lactic Acid and Sodium Lactate actually draws moisture back into the skin, from the surrounding environment”.
The Dry Skin Gel is odd, initially, with a stickiness to it that feels counter-intuitive; with dry skin conditions you want something that spreads easily to reduce discomfort. However, once you apply even the smallest amount the sticky gel transforms into an oil which melts immediately into the skin, leaving a light fresh scent behind and not even a hint of a greasy finish.
The high level of actives means you need only a pinch to cover a large area, and the ease with which it spreads means you’ll use far less than you would of your usual dry skin cream.
Economical and effective, we predict it’ll be a household name in no time.#DrySkinGel #BioOilSA
