Organic Stretch Mark Cream
£6.00 – £30.00
Our super emollient Stretch Mark Cream is packed with omega-rich oils and macerated plant extracts to help prevent and heal stretch marks. It contains no essential oils so can be used during pregnancy (after the first 3 months). This amazing pot of cream can also help scars to heal after operations and soothe with the irritation associated other skin conditions such as cracked nipples, shingles and blisters. This product is rich but rubs in easily, leaving no greasy residue. A little goes a long way, so it should last a while!
What causes stretch marks and how can I minimise them?
Stretch marks are caused when your skin changes quickly, for example when pregnant, during a growth spurt or after rapid weight gain or loss. Additionally, using corticosteroid creams can result in thinner skin which is more prone to stretching. Of course, no-one can totally prevent stretch marks, but regular massage 2-3 times a day may help to minimise them. Minimising stretch marks and healing scars is all about keeping the skin elastic with the correct moisturisers. Our Organic Stretch Mark Cream is therefore packed with omega rich oils and five powerful macerated plant extracts. These help prevent and heal stretch mark and scar tissue. It contains no essential oils, so can be used during pregnancy (after the first three months).
Why is Stretch Mark cream so good at helping the skin to heal?
Stretch Mark Cream contains tamanu oil, known for its effectiveness in many skin problems including being non irritant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Tamanu’s benefits are supported by research conducted in the Pacific Islands, Asia, and Europe. More recently, research from Japan and Canada has illuminated the science behind tamanu oil’s success. For example, Japanese researchers at Meijo University found that several isolated chemical compounds in tamanu inhibit skin tumor production. Tamanu oil contains three essential classes of lipids: neutral, glyco, and phospholipids. Additionally, the oil contains three unique compounds: calophyllic acid, an anti-inflammatory called calophyllolid and an antibiotic called lactone. Along with coumarins, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, these ingredients are the source of the oil’s remarkable healing power.
Extracts of calendula, chamomile, rose geranium, chickweed, and nettle work in perfect harmony to aid healing, and together with the power of tamanu, will give you amazing results. Chamomile soothes redness and irritation, calendula soothes, reduces pain and inflammation. Chickweed rejuvenates and has a cooling and drying effect on wounds and skin eruptions. Nettle is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial so as well as calming and soothing the skin, it also reduces free radical damage and helps kill off bacteria and fungi. What a powerful range of ingredients! We believe a cream is better than an oil, as creams add moisture as well as elasticity, and hence help with firming and toning too. Healthy young skin is 50% fat and 50% water, so we replicate this in our cream using a combination of beautiful organic fats like cocoa and shea butters, rosehip, soya and sunflower oils.
