Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel is a new way to treat dry skin. Traditional dry skin products such as creams, lotions and body butters are made primarily from water. Most of this water simply evaporates when coming into contact with your skin. It’s often what causes the cold sensation that you feel when applying these products. Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel is made from oil, so feels “warm” on application. In a user trial conducted on dry skin sufferers, the majority said it was better than anything they had used before for dry skin.
Compared to the untreated side, Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel showed statistically significant improvements in clinical grading of dryness, SKICON measurements and Corneometer measurements, at all time points; and in Tewameter measurements, at treatment day 14 and regression day 3. For clinical grading of dryness statistically significant improvements were evident in 82% of subjects after only two days. After two weeks 100% of subjects showed a statistically significant result, with the extent of the improvement almost triple that at day 2. Three days after treatment was stopped 93% of subjects had maintained a statistically significant improvement compared to the start of the study.
