Stretch marks are a type of scarring that can appear on the body, but are most commonly in places where fat is stored and where the skin is most likely to stretch. This most commonly happens during puberty, pregnancy and through rapid weight gain.

If you are noticing stretch marks, you’re not alone. At first, stretch marks can appear as a reddish or purple line that may appear indented and have a different texture from the surrounding skin. However you find that the deep colour of these lines will fade over time and your stretch marks will become less apparent.

The five key ingredients that you need to keep in mind when purchasing your product is:

  • Argen oil
  • Centella asiatica
  • Sweet almond oil
  • Collagen
  • Elastin

Whilst there is no way to completely prevent stretch marks, a healthy lifestyle and diet combined with specially designed products will help to slow down the stretch mark process. All of the above ingredients have been tested and proven to leave your skin beautifully soft and smooth. The key is to keep your skin well hydrated and as supple as possible which will help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
