Stretch Marks Info

Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin, caused by tearing of the dermis, which may diminish over time, but they will not disappear completely.

They are often the result of stretching of the skin associated with both rapid weight change and growth (like during pregnancy, usually during the last trimester,) and usually on the stomach. The marks can also occur on the breasts, thighs, hips, lower back and buttocks. 

Some forms of stretch marks are believed to be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy and hormone replacement therapy. Some people who practice intense body building get stretch marks after they retire.

There are natural health remedies that may help in reducing the incidence of stretch marks as well as treating the symptoms. Massaging the affected areas with oils that contain specific ingredients (e.g. sweet almond oil - which works gently, delivers moisturising essential fatty acids that keep skin supple and protected from drying.) Pregnancy is a big job for muscles and skin, here, organic arnica flower extract may help ease tightness. Read more on how natural remedies might help reduce stretch marks after pregnancy or weight loss on our blog.

Antioxidants such as Vitamin E work to protect cells in the body from damage caused by free radicals, which are potentially damaging by-products of energy metabolism. Vitamin E helps to prevent LDL (bad) cholesterol damage from free radicals hereby protecting against cell damage may also be beneficial in treating stretch marks.

  • tamanu oil

    star

    ordered this oil and within 3 days received it. amazing service, thank you. when i went to use it the smell hit me. i am know used to it and love it. when i go out i mix it with something else so its not overpowering in smell for others. i have two dark raised sun spots so have tried this oil on them. one has just about disappeared while the other is a bit slower but is fading, so good. it hasn't cleared up the spot of scaly skin on my cheek though maybe it takes time for that. also use it for my dry skin which seems to be working. overall very happy with it.

  • Excellent product

    star

    Now on my second jar, love it ! I am in my 70s and in recent years have occasionally suffered Rosaceae on my face. Have tried other products with varying success, however after trying Cellfood Oxygen Gel I was amazed how quickly it improved the redness, tightened the pores and softened my skin as a bonus. I use it in conjunction with Cellfood Concentrate on a daily basis now and my skin feels smooth and hydrated. Like some other reviewers I found my skin felt tight on initial use but have got used to it and wouldn't be without it now to keep my skin clear.

  • Will buy a second bottle

    star

    I was on the look for a 'clean' belly oil to prevent stretch mark appearing from the pregnancy, and found this brand on healthpost. I thought to give it a go and I'm really liking it. I find it relly nourishes and hydrates my skin. The only downside for me is the container, I find it a little bit messy. Otherwise, love it and will buy a second one!
