Just like the illustrious ‘pregnancy glow’, stretch marks seem to be an inevitable part of every pregnancy. But this doesn’t have to be the case – as long as you choose the right product and use it at the right time, you can prevent the unsightly battle scars of pregnancy from developing. Pampered Just 4 Mums Nourishing Stretch Mark Cream is a rich, nourishing emulsion, which has been specially developed to care for the sensitive skin of women – before, during, and after giving birth. Enriched with nourishing cocoa butter and super conditioning shea butter, the Just 4 Mums Stretch Mark cream is ideal for boosting moisture levels and keeping skin soft and supple, important in the prevention and treatment of stretch marks.
It is estimated that between 75% and 90% of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy. While stretch marks are not necessarily uncomfortable, the affected surrounding areas can occasionally become itchy and sensitive. This itchiness and sensitivity can be combated by keeping the skin moisturised and supple, while the action of rubbing in the cream will help improve circulation.
Cocoa butter has been around for centuries. Known as the ‘ultimate moisturizer,’ cocoa butter absorbs into the skin with ease due to its body temperature melting point. The cocoa butter creates a shield against the environment, and it has been proven to be effective in the treatment and prevention of stretch marks, as well as the alleviating of psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. It works by holding back the production of immuno globulin which is known to aggravate and accelerate the above mentioned conditions. Cocoa butter has natural antioxidants and an irresistible subdued chocolate odour.
The benefits of Shea Butter has been enjoyed for centuries. It comes from the tropics of Africa, from the nut of the Karite tree and has tremendous benefits for the skin. The women of Africa call Shea Butter, ‘women’s gold’, such is its reputation for anti-inflammatory and super moisturizing cosmetic properties. Shea butter is effective at treating pregnancy stretch marks, as well as many other skin conditions, including fading scars, eczema, rashes and acne blemishes.
The stretch mark creams also contains rosehip oil and argan oil, to help boost elasticity and promote supple, healthy skin. Rosehip oil's potent natural actives make it highly effective for scars and stretch marks and other skin concerns including dehydrated and ageing skin. Argan oil is the essential oil that everyone’s talking about! The oil extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, has been used by the Berber women of Morocco for centuries, and has been nicknamed ‘liquid gold’ by Hollywood celebrities. The plant based solution relieves the effects of patchy skin and lacklustre locks, it’s also richer in Vitamin E than olive oil and is packed full of fatty acids marking it as one of nature’s most effective moisturisers.
