What is Palmer's Cocoa Butter
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Marks Lotion is an effective way to improve the skin elasticity and reduce the visibility of stretch marks. The blend of natural oils, including other ingredients, keep the skin moisturised for the next 48 hours allowing it to stretch more easily.
Stretch marks are streaks that can appear on the skin when it has to grow and stretch too quickly for the elasticity in it to allow. They are most frequently found on the stomach, hips, thighs, bottom and breast areas and are commonly found in pregnant women, appearing more so in the last trimester of the pregnancy but they can occur in men and in teenagers too. Stretch marks can be dark red, brown, pink, black, silver or purple in appearance. Once they appear, they will never disappear entirely but can sometimes fade over time.
Whilst part of the natural process of expanding skin in many cases, some sufferers will find them unsightly and would seek to improve the way they look. Others will hope to prevent their appearance from coming in the first place! This can now be achieved with the use of products such as Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Marks Lotion which will work to improve the skin's elasticity so fewer stretch marks form, and will also reduce the appearance of ones already there.
What is the difference between Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Marks Lotion and Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel / Aveeno Daily Moisturising Creamy Oil?
Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is a unique gel-to-oil formula which will nourish the skin by replenishing its natural barrier and deeply moisturising it. It is easily absorbed and creates a protective film to prevent moisture loss and rehydrate the skin to make it more supple, which should serve to prevent stretch marks from forming.
Aveeno Daily Moisturising Creamy Oil uses naturally active ingredients like Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Marks Lotion in the form of sweet almond oil and colloidal oatmeal. It moisturises as an oil and absorbs like a cream.
How effective is Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Marks Lotion?
Palmer's Cocoa Butter, Stretch Marks Lotion, has been clinically tested. It is hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved to provide treatment to the skin to prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
An 8-week trial of 102 female participants aged 18-49 showed that 98% saw improved elasticity in their skin. It is the reduced elasticity that causes it to rupture slightly, creating the stretch marks.
Lifestyle factors, genetics, diet and skin type all play a role in the forming of stretch marks, how severe they are and whether they will reduce significantly in appearance will differ from person to person. But an improvement in elasticity should assist with the severity – using this product as directed should help with this.
Skin can become more sensitive during pregnancy, so always do a patch test before using.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Marks Lotion will keep skin supple and moisturised for up to 48 hours, which will allow it to stretch more easily.
Always follow the guidelines for use.

How does Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Marks Lotion work?
Palmer's Cocoa Butter, Stretch Marks Lotion, has a unique blend of many natural ingredients to help ensure the skin is cared for.
