Bio-Oil - Specialist Skincare Oil


Every woman knows the beauty of pregnancy when she becomes pregnant but there is also fear of stretch marks and other scars that comes along with the birth of her baby. Men or women who have lost a lot of weight worry about stretch marks. Well, you need not worry because there is Bio-Oil which helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, aging skin, dehydrated skin and uneven skin tone. Bio-Oil is a multipurpose specialist skincare product that has won 223 skincare awards for its effectiveness.



Recently, Bio-Oil Malaysia celebrated Mothers’ Day in May with their campaign titled #sheisremarkable. This is an offshoot of Bio-Oil’s year-long 2018 campaign #iamremarkable, which celebrates the milestones in a woman’s life, especially the most meaningful events, like having a baby, and having the experience of becoming a mother enrich the relationship with one’s own mother.

The celebration was kicked off with a video entitled Remarkable Love, showcasing the unique bond between Yasmin Hani and her mother. It revolves around when she just gave birth who has just given birth. In her musings, she flashes back to the time when she was pregnant and her relationship with her own mother.



This campaign is followed with a Facebook contest, where fans of Bio-Oil post snapshots with their mothers. Eleven pairs of Bio-Oil products are up for grabs in conjunction with Bio-Oil’s 11 th year anniversary in Malaysia.

Bio-Oil is also running a contest until the end of June whereby with purchase of Bio-Oil 60ml, you can stand a chance to win a studio photoshoot and makeover session of you and your loved ones. Our journey is an ever changing one and thus Bio-Oil encourages everyone out there, regardless what stage they’re at, to capture the moment and savour the memories.

#sheisremarkable is not only about celebrating oneself as a woman, but to highlight the support received from meaningful relationships with others. Not only can Bio-Oil assist a woman in looking and feeling her best, but it amplifies the joy in being able to share this with others.

“Mother’s love is true love – the purest form of love there is. It is protective and self-sacrificing and wants the best for her daughter. Conversely, a daughter’s love for her mother is irreplaceable. Even though the bond may be complex and fraught with difficulties, at the end of the day there is no other love like the love between a mother and daughter. Pregnancy and giving birth helps to seal the bond between a grown up daughter and her mother, as she is finally in a position to empathise with what her mother went through in carrying and giving birth to her and caring for her. Bio-Oil is an ideal oil to salve and seal that bond, because it can be used to prevent and treat stretch marks, as well as to treat ageing lines,” says Ms. Low Hooi Wan, Business Unit Manager of Bio-Oil Malaysia. “It is truly a product that can be passed down from generations to generations.”

Themepaktu Dinosaur Kingdom


When I was young, I loved going to theme parks and enjoyed playing outdoors. There were no digital devices like smartphones or tablets then. However, children these days are always playing games or watching Youtube videos. You will be surprised that even toddlers know how to manoeuvre their way through smartphones or tablets. Digital devices are good for learning, communicating, searching for information and others but spending too much time on digital devices is not healthy. Usually I like to bring my children outdoors to play and learn.
