    Default Stretch mark solutions minus the chemicals?

    Any suggestions? Im a little apprehensive about rubbing products so close that are full of nasties. From what I can see all the ones in the supermarket ( bio oil, palmers ect) are all filled with nasties

    Shea butter every day after your shower. Rub it over your tummy, hips and boobs.

    Just use a moisturizer you're happy with. Nothing you rub on your skin will prevent them anyway

    Just use a good moisturiser after showers and whenever your tummy feels tight.

    Default Stretch mark solutions minus the chemicals?

    I got very itchy from my growing belly and tried lots of things including bio oil, palmers & regular moisturizer. At the suggestion of my naturopath i brought pure organic coconut oil from my healthfood store & used it every night after a shower (i put heaps on, literally lathered myself from my neck to my knees) and it made my skin so soft and I didn't get itchy at all. I had bub 10 weeks ago & have no stretch marks, they say stretch marks are genetic, my mum had HEAPS from when she had kids and I always assumed I would get them but never did :-)

    Also it's super cheap, 1 liter of pure organic Fiji coconut oil cost $25 & lasted me 6 months & you can also use it to cook with :-)

    There's not a whole lot you can do to prevent them but if you do get them good old uv seems to help them fade.

    I used to get liquid Vit E caps, prick and squeeze them and rub them on my belly and boobs. Can't get anymore natural than that

    I don't get stretch marks but this is what I did for my first c-sec scar which is now barely noticeable. Like a fine hair line.
