I try: Dr. LeWinn’s impressive Bio-Care Oil


I’m mad for oils – I could go on for days about my favourites, the whys and wherefores – and always love hearing about a new, petrochemical-free one that promises results. In this instance that would be Dr. LeWinn’s Bio-Care Oil, which is damn impressive thus far.
Formulated with what the highly respected skincare company call ‘Bio-Sensi’ Complex, it’s a specialist, intense treatment oil that “replenishes, regenerates and delivers deep nourishment to the skin”.
The key ingredient in this clever ‘Bio-Sensi’ Complex is Echium Oil, cold pressed from the seeds of the Echium Plantagineum. This highly unique oil contains all the essential fatty acids (EFA’s), along with significant levels of one particular Omega-3, known as Stearidonic Acid. This fatty acid promotes skin regeneration along with the formation of collagen and elastin - the structural elements responsible for keeping the skin plump, firm and supported. Echium Oil is one of nature’s very few sources of this wonder ingredient, and also has the tremendous advantage of being derived from a naturally renewable plant source.
Other skin-loving ingredients in this magic formula include Tea (Camellia) Oil, for its rejuvenating and moisturising properties; Calendula Oil for its soothing, healing and anti-microbial benefits; Olive Oil, to provide a vitamin and antioxidant boost; and Coconut Oil for its excellent skin softening and smoothing effects.
And just as important in my opinion: Dr. LeWinn’s Bio-Care Oil contains absolutely NO parabens, paraffins, lanolin, dyes, fragrances, synthetic or petrochemical ingredients that can cause irritation, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin or pregnant, or pretty much anyone who cares about what goes in that which they put on their skin.
A great multitasker – like many quality oils of note – you can slap this goodie on pretty much whatever ails you, including stretch marks, scars and damaged skin, or skin dehydrated by the sun. It also reportedly offers much-needed moisture relief to dry skin conditions, including Eczema and Psoriasis, and I love it rubbed into my legs after shaving for a soothing, sassy gleam.
