The Stretch Mark Vanishing Act
Stretch marks are often, along with cellulite, the bane of a woman’s existence. Any woman will tell you that stretch marks and cellulite are pretty much up there with the things we hate the most about our skin. If we find something that actually does something about stretch marks, you can bet that we will shout it from the roof tops!

 Apothederm® Stretch Mark Cream promises to do something about stretch marks. I was skeptical. I have heard that many creams promise to get rid of stretch marks but with little success. Apothederm® Stretch Mark Cream reinforces the skin’s fundamental support structures and helps to visibly repair existing stretch marks. It is formulated with a patented SmartPeptide® technology that helps build up collagen and reduces the appearance of red and silver stretch marks, all while smoothing your skin’s texture.
This cream evens skin tone, protects skin to prevent future stretch marks from forming, leaves skin soft and moisturized and it supports and firms skin.  Most of all, the Apothederm® Stretch Mark Cream is effective for old and new stretch marks. Results can be visible in as little as 2 weeks, and they will continue to improve over time. Visible results in as little as 2 weeks with continued improvement over time.

This cream has great ingredients in it that make it effective. A blend of 4 emollients, shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and highly moisturizing meadowfoam seed oil  to make a fast-absorbing lotion. Add the patented heptapeptide-7, resveratrol, licorice extract, brightening amino acids, algae extract, sodium hyaluronate and other advanced ingredients that work to fade the appearance of stretch marks and nourish the skin. Heptapeptide-7 is a  is a bioactive SmartPeptide® that boosts collagen and helps support tissue. It is made of 7 naturally occurring amino acids that are commonly found in the skin and is modeled on the natural defensed found in our own body’s repair system. Using this helps our body repair itself. Shea butter is a great emollient and it moisturizes and protects against dehydration. Meadowfoam seed oil is also a wonderful emollient and contains a naturally occuring tocopheryl (Vitamin E) and protects against moisture loss. Olive fruit oil and cocoa seed butter hydrate and soften the skin. Sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) is a super humectant, drawing 1,000 its own weight in water into the skin and maintaining hydration in the skin. Resveratrol  is an anti-oxidant a licorice root is an anti-irritant that helps reduce discoloration in the skin.

I did notice that my stretch marks have been reduced in size and discoloration. I would show a photograph but honestly I am very shy about the area they are in (my stomach from childbirth). I have horrible ones that have come from giving birth to two children and just having any sort of decrease in their size and color makes me happy. They didn’t go away but I do not expect miracles. I do think that I would say there is a 30% decrease in discoloration and size.

  1. This sounds pretty promising! I don't really have any stretch marks yet, only a couple on the insides of my thighs, but I'll definitely be bearing this in mind when it comes to having children :)

  2. Would you say that it works better than competing brands in your opinion or about the same?
