Using Bio Oil after rolling?
« on: August 06, 2011, 01:54:24 PM »
Is it ok to use bio oil after needling and if so, is there is it likely to have any beneficial effect (this product is one that is supposed to be good for stretch marks)?

Using Bio Oil after rolling?

I went to their site and they do not give the percentages of their ingredients - the only relevant piece of info is how much vit. A it contains..

It contains twelve different fragrances however, and that makes me sceptical that this is a serious product instead of an expensive gimmick.

Their website does not mention why the product would be good for stretchmarks, neither do they have any scientific backup that their product works.

Their claims are unverifyable, as they do not allow you to read the actual "research" done on that product. That's a strong sign that they do not want you to read it.

Why would a company pay many tens of thousands of dollars for a clinical trial, claim it was positive but not show you the test results as a downloadable PDF for example?

In fact, if we have to believe them, they've done many clinical trials all around the world, which should have cost them at least a hundred thousand dollars. And they have nothing to show for it - not one downloadable test report.

Clinical trials are extremely expensive. We paid 2500 dollars for a simple safety and purity test of our Lufenuron (and made it available for download). Clinical trials cost a small fortune, as it involves doctors following up on patients, in clinics, over many weeks or months.

Unless it contains a comparable percentage of vit. A as vit. A ointments such as Infadolan, I'd say it's useless or even harmful. The ingredient list lists a dozen unneccessary chemicals (fragrances) of which nobody knows how they will influence the collagen induction process.

The fact that a company puts so many nice smells into their product shows that they are not interested in its pharmacological properties but much more in its sales potential to the gullible mass market.

In addition to that, they're clearly engaging in deceptive marketing practices, with obvious sponsored "awards" for the "best stretchmark product".

Their "research" section shows nothing but fake research, using "research institutes" that lend credibility to their claims for a fee. The same with their agressive paid forum spamming and article writing by freelancers.

You *never* should buy something that is agressively and expensively marketed, because such marketing is so expensive that there is no money left for high concentrations of active ingredients.

You should also *never* buy anything that has a very long list of ingredients that are of no use, such as a dozen different fragrances. That is a clear sign that something's fishy.

There are many thousands of products around that all cost nearly nothing to make and are marketed by an army of spammers and affiliates. Don't fall for them. There isn't a single magazine in the world that awards a price for the best "anti-stretchmark product" without charging a lot of money for such an "award". That's how those publications make their money. The same with "reviews". You get a review when you pay. And the "review" will always be positive.

Stay with simple but proven products that come from a real pharmacy or real pharmaceutical company. Stay with products that are used in hospitals. The simplest is usually the best.

Use products that are mentioned in medical research papers - not that "won prizes" in magazines.
