When Kim Kardashian and Meghan Markle swear by the same body oil to fade stretch marks and scars, you know it must be good. Bio-Oil’s Skincare Oil has been around for nearly 35 years, and celebrities and shoppers alike use it to moisturize and even out their skin tone. The product’s only downside is that it’s not made with entirely natural ingredients — until now.
Recently, the brand completely reformulated its classic skin care product with 100 percent natural plant oils and extracts. “A lot of the plant oils have antioxidants in them and anti-inflammatory benefits,” Dr. Anna Karp, dermatologist and Bio-Oil partner told InStyle. Some of those natural oils include jojoba seed oil to moisturize your skin, soybean oil with vitamin E to fade pigmentation, rosehip oil with vitamins A and E to reduce inflammation, and chamomile oil to even out your skin tone.

You can put the Skincare Oil on scars and stretch marks all over your body, but Dr. Karp also recommends using it on your cuticles and in your hair for added hydration. “It just has that light finish, so you don’t feel greasy at all,” she said.
Tons of Amazon shoppers have seen impressive results once they added this oil into their skin care rotations. “The Bio-Oil Skincare Oil is the single addition to my morning and evening skincare routine that has gotten rid of my flaky patches,” one wrote. “It doesn’t cause any type of breakout, it feels lightweight on the skin, and absorbs quickly. My skin is feeling much softer, smoother, less dull, and I’ve noticed that dark spots and old blemish scars are starting to slowly fade.”
Another shopper wrote, “This natural formula seems to be working just as [well] as the original, which I’ve used since high school, sans mineral oil, perfume, dyes, or petroleum additives! I use it on scars, dry patches, cuticles, added to face cream, and on acne spots that are no longer active to fade the dark spot and prevent scarring. A staple in my beauty cabinet.”
Whether you have super sensitive skin or simply prefer to use all natural products, the new Bio-Oil Skincare Oil natural formula is about to become a mainstay in your routine for soft, even, and dark spot-free skin. Shop more sizes of the product on Amazon below.
