100% Natural. Decrease and prevent unsightly stretch marks with powerful, nutritive oils that penetrate beneath the skin's surface to help skin stretch as you grow. Mama's Gold Stretch Mark Prevention & Treatment Oil is not your typical stretch mark oil made from cheap, inferior oils that do little to improve the skin's condition. Nay, Shea Terra Organics' famous treatment oil, featured in such magazines as Fit Pregnancy, is made from the best nutritive oils designed to penetrate beneath skin's surface where it is needed. Shea Terra Organics' founder, mother to 12 children, formulated this exotic blend with over a decade of experience in African herbs and oils. Pregnant women are more prone to brittle skin as their babies acquire nutrients from their mothers. If you have ever found a rubber band that has become dry and brittle, then you will know that once stretched the rubber band becomes cracked. In contrast, a rubber band that is relatively new and flexible, can be stretched again and again and go back to their original shape without damage. The skin works in a similar manner. The problem with most stretch mark oils, however, is that the inexpensive oils they use to make maximum profit do little to benefit the cellular structure of the skin and mostly remain on the skin's suface without penetration. Tammie formulated Mama's Gold utilizing several of her most nutrient oils that nourish cells as they penetrate below the surface to help skin stretch. While there is no absolute prevention for stretch marks, the level of the skin's elasticity can be markedly improved with the right ingredients. There is also no way of completely getting rid of stretch marks, but their appearance can be drastically improved with proper topical nutrition from ingredients that actually penetrate the skin's surface unlike cocoa butter and coconut oil which do not.
