Clinical trials

We know that our customers love Omega Oil, but we wanted to see what scientists would make of its performance.  We asked Cutest, one of the leading skincare testing facilities in the UK, to trial the product.  

We are committed to being transparent and authentic with our customers.  Any dermatologist will tell you that some stretch marks and scars are so pronounced and long-established that no magic potion will remove them, whatever a product may claim.   Independent Clinical Research into these products is few and far between, but based on comparable trials, Omega Oil performs as well, if not better, than other non-surgical solutions for stretch marks.  

What is most significant about Omega Oil is that our clinical tests on skin elasticity and moisture levels (which help prevent stretch marks) demonstrated a vast improvement.  These tests showed that Omega Oils (which are the building blocks of every cell in our body) can be beneficial to skin topically as well as in our diet, and are the best natural solution for supporting the elasticity and hydration of the skin.   

In the future we will put Omega Oil to the test with independent research into other conditions which our customers tell us it helps them with - such as psoriasis, eczema, keratosis pilaris, scars and ageing skin.

  • Abdominal stretch marks were 6 months to 4 years formed.
  • Patients advised on application by study nurses at Cutest laboratories, UK.

Stretch Mark Prevention

Improving skin elasticity and moisture levels is the best way to prevent stretch marks.  

  • On average, Omega Oil improved skin elasticity by 45% (see chart).

  • One third of users improved their skin elasticity by more than 100%.

  • A trial by a large international stretch mark oil only recorded skin elasticity improvements in 20% of subjects during abdominal application trials.  However, 91% of our trial subjects recorded improvements in elasticity.


Skin Moisture Levels

Skin moisture levels recorded using a Corneometer demonstrated an outstanding improvement in skin hydration:

  • On average the skin's moisture levels increased by 19% after only 2 weeks of using Omega Oil. 
  • Skin hydration helps to improve the skin's barrier function thereby reducing sensitivity.
  • Hydrated skin also helps to reduce pre-mature ageing and to impart a healthy and youthful glow.
