A little goes a long way, so even on your bump it should last a while!
This amazing little pot of cream is really helpful not only for stretch marks, but also for scar healing after operations, including cancer operations. Its remarkable properties can even help with the irritation associated with shingles and blisters. This cream is rich but rubs in easily, leaving no greasy residue, and it smells nice too. A little goes a long way, so even on your bump it should last a while!
Minimising stretch marks and healing scars is all about keeping the skin elastic with the correct moisturisers, and of course plant extracts. 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 3 months).
Of course, no-one can totally prevent stretch marks if you are prone to them (some teenage boys have them after fast growing spurts). But regular massage 2-3 times a day will definitely help to minimise these, and after will help to heal the scars. 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.
- Ultra-rich so a little really does go a long way.
- Can also be used on cracked nipples and post-operative scarring.
- Contains no essential oils or perfumes, so safe for use while pregnant (after the first 3 months).
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, whilst Canadian researchers at the Université de Sherbrooke discovered that tamanu contains two chemicals called HIV transcriptase inhibitors. Tamanu oil contains 3 essential classes of lipids: neutral, glyco, and phospholipids. Additionally, the oil contains 3 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!
Gently massage into any part of the body as needed. Use as often as necessary.
