Each batch is laboratory tested and monitored over a 5-year period.
    • DPESTEL/MACRO ANALYSIS Demographical: • Women are mainly prone to stretch marks. They are also notoriously hard to get rid of therefore the demand is high. • If any of the ingredients prove to be beneficial for children and/or men, then it will open up another market. • Price fluctuation will determine what demographic of women can afford it. Political: • External reviews that do not bode well for Bio-oil that pertain to their preferred clientele could lead to boycotting of the product. Environmental: • Due to the product’s oily nature might be seen a hazardous for the environment or user’s health. • Any ingredient that can be deemed harmful within the contents of the bottle at any stage will affect bio-oil’s popularity
    • Social: • Ethical issues/feminist issue: May argue against the removal of natural occurrences. Technological: • Improvements in faster and more effective stretch mark and scar removal. Economical: • Sales are in accordance with inflation as product is a luxury good. Legal: • If one of the ingredients is proved to be harmful at any point they will face major litigation action.
