    Default Stretch mark solutions minus the chemicals?

    I use coconut oil! I will show you the difference in my stomach from being over weight to just pregnant. They have faded sooo much

    You can still see them but they have faded heaps!

    Apologies for thread crashing but no cream or potion will prevent stretch marks as they start very deep in the skins. Also, all products contain chemicals. If you buy something that claims to be "chemical free" you've been misled.

    That is very true You either get them or you don't and it's to do with skin elasticity. However, I think you can lessen the damage to how deep they go and how red they stay with stuff like vit E

    Yeah, if you're going to get them, you're going to get them.

    If you want to feel like you're doing something to prevent them though, just use any type of moisturiser or oil you're happy with. None of them are going to work better than any other type, and time will make them fade anyway.

    I highly doubt that coconut oil from a health food store has chemicals and Vitamin E is definitely not a chemical so yeah ... oh and yes, these two things will not prevent stretch marks but they will fade them to almost non-existent. Believe me, I know
