About us

Proudly South African, Bio-Oil Skincare Oil was created by Dieter Beier, a German chemist who researched for many years to develop a skincare product that could help relieve his persistently dry skin condition. Beier’s breakthrough formulation with Bio-Oil Skincare Oil was a revolutionary product that extracted vitamins from plants, suspending them in an oil base and keeping the potency of the ingredients, without the use of preservatives.

In 1987, Beier launched Bio-Oil Skincare Oil in South Africa and amassed a loyal following who shared openly that it was not just a product to treat dry skin. Testimonials poured in describing how Bio-Oil Skincare Oil successfully helped with stretch marks, scars and uneven skin tone.

13 years later, Beier sold his business to the Letschert brothers who saw the immense potential in this ground breaking product. They ensured that the product’s strong testimonials flowed through to the audience of skincare products worldwide.

And the demand for Bio-Oil Skincare Oil skyrocketed.

Within five years Bio-Oil Skincare Oil was the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in South Africa. Today, it is available in over 125 countries across five continents. Bio-Oil Skincare Oil has won over 349 skincare awards and has become the top-selling scar and stretch mark product in 25 countries.

After 30 years in the skincare industry, Bio-Oil launched its greatly anticipated new product, Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel. This is another revolutionary skin product that replaces the water usually found in cream formulations with oil, making the product 100% active.
