I have some nasty surgical scars, and I massage it into those twice a day. They aren't less visible, but they certainly feel more supple - and despite the scars being several years old, they do tighten up and itch terribly if I stop for a couple of weeks. So it's doing something, but it may just be the oily massage that is helping, rather than Bio oil itself. But I like the smell, and it doesn't feel or smell medicinal which I like.
I've been using it on surgical scars daily for over two years and I'm very pleased with the results. The scars are far paler and softer than they used to be so I don't notice them nearly as much. I also found it was great for moisturising skin left very dry and irritated after radiotherapy.
No. It has no magic ingredients you can't get far cheaper in something else, is v careful in it's marketing not to make any claims but lots of smoke and mirrors and over 2 years scars would fade anyway.
It is a nice moisturiser but then it's an oil - so it should be!
Nurses and health care professionals have heard the ads just the same as everyone else. If you asked her why she was suggesting it and what the evidence was, I doubt she would have been able to answer.
