Is BioCorneum plus SPF30 good?
Having that this product is often prescribed by surgeons and dermatologists, we can assume that it has a good reputation among skin care professionals.
Just like similar products, this one should be applied once the skin has healed. It is suitable for the face, neck, chest, hands, and any other area exposed to the sun.
The reviews about this product are not very impressive but the most common reason is that (as usual) people expect visible changes after the first days of application.

- Isopropyl Myristate (a common emollient, lubricant; considered generally safe)
How to apply BioCorneum plus SPF 30?

- When applied to newer scars the treatment period should be 60 to 90 days.
- When applied to older scars, the recommended minimum treatment period is 90 days.
