Indications/Uses
Help prevent and treat dry skin conditions.
Dosage/Direction for Use
When applying a traditional dry skin product, a large quantity needs to be used as the majority of these products, being predominantly water, evaporate when coming into contact with skin. Since Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is an oil, substantially less product needs to be used to cover the same body area. Apply a small amount to dry skin as required. In the case of persistent dry skin, apply daily. Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel was specifically formulated as a dry skin treatment for the body, however it may also be used on the face. 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 an on-going basis.

Adverse Reactions
Causes of adverse reactions: While Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel has a safe toxicological profile and meets international regulations in this respect, as with all cosmetic products, there exists a risk that Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel users may encounter an adverse reaction when using the product. In the rare case of an adverse reaction to Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel it is most likely to have been caused by one of the following factors.
Allergens: Regulations require that consumers be alerted to the presence of allergens in personal care products. Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel contains four of these allergens, which are naturally present in the plant oils, and also in the fragrance.
Hormonal changes: Changes in the skin's condition are influenced by the hormonal activity in our bodies. For this reason, people frequently experience changes in their skin condition during puberty, pregnancy and menopause, when there are significant hormonal changes taking place. Hormonal changes can cause the skin to react unpredictably to certain products.
Typical symptoms of an adverse reaction: Symptoms of an adverse skin reaction can include rashes, swelling and inflammation, which would typically occur in the area to which the product was applied. These reactions may be accompanied by itchiness and slight discomfort. In most cases, adverse reactions will subside within two to three days after use of the product has been discontinued. Until it has returned to its original condition, the skin may appear dry and flaky as the reaction subsides.
Drug Interactions
Use in conjunction with a Skincare Routine: For maximum absorption, Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel should be applied to cleansed skin after showering. If applying a moisturiser, sun protection lotion or other face cream, only do so once Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel has been completely absorbed into the skin. For all over body use, apply Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel after showering or bathing. Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel's results will vary from individual to individual.
