Hi Sam-Carlos,

Joined this Forum yesterday,and this is going to be my first post.

I have done extensive research on Shea Butter,and I can tell you it prevents Stretch Marks.If they have already developed,it reduces their appearance, that at times, they are hardly discernible.

Hey,I didn't say REFINED SHEA BUTTER  o!I mean 'raw and natural'.Let me know after you have used it for 3 to 4 weeks.

Good Luck!

I USED TO HAVE THOSE STRETCH MARKS TOO, BUT I NOTICED THAT SINCE I STARTED REGULAR EXERCISE, IT HELPED A LOT

NOW THEY ARE NOT TOO VISIBLE, EXCEPT U TAKE A VERY CLOSE LOOK AT D AFFECTED AREAS, I ALSO TRIED JERGENS FIRMING CREAM

I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU

SOMEONE RECOMMENDED IT FOR ME THOUGH I MIXED WITH ONE OTHER CREAM FOR STRETCH MARK( I CANT REMEMBER THE NAME SHA) BUT I WILL FIND OUT

I have tried all the different types of creams but they do not work on my skin.

So its a good question when you find a cure please let me know.

When there is a breakdown or loss of elastin and collagen fibers or excessive stretching in the skin, the mark actually shows through to the epidermis.

From what i have heard, you can't totally get rid of them even if you surgically tighten the skin area affected you will still have the residue in the under lying skin-dermis. But there are some very good creams and lotions that can reduce (almost completely) the appearance. I tried this particular one from South-Africa it has all the natural plant oils extracts you can think of---- Shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, wheat-gem and citrus fruits etc and it actually worked. Regular exercise is also known to help.

It depends. If you recently gained weight or are pregnant, then they would appear. However, there are also some conditions that would create stretch marks even though your actual size remains the same. I'll do some research in this in about 3 hours. (After exams)

The ones you get from diseases/illness should vanish once you treat the cause. But I can't think of any treatment right now. Maybe later.
