Hi Spoiled Mamas! I hope you've all had a wonderful week now that the little ones are back in school and Fall is quickly approaching. (Can you believe Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Lattes are already here again?!)
It's been an exciting week at The Spoiled Mama. Namely, we've been featured in Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine's Buyer's Guide -- wahoo! In case you have been too busy making sure the kids aren't attacking one another, P&N is a FABULOUS parenting publication that can be found almost everywhere. The Buyer's Guide featured The Spoiled Mama's Tummy Butter for stretch marks, our solution to the more stubborn stretch marks from pregnancy and rapid weight gain or loss.
You ask: "What makes your golden belly butter the stuff of legend?" Why a whole lot of organic ingredients and a drop (or two) of unicorn tears. But don't take our word for it - just read The Spoiled Mama Reviews!
How does a cute name like Tummy Butter kick some serious stretch mark butt? Like Jackie Chan, we’re gonna break it down for you.
The Spoiled Mama’s Tummy Butter for stretch marks begins with a base of cocoa butter and shea butter, two renowned moisturizers chock full of vitamins essential to healthy skin. After, we infuse 11 cold-pressed oils that include vitamin E oil, organic Rosehip, Tamanu & Sea Buckthorn. Each oil is selected for its protective, hydrating and restorative quality. Finally, it’s scented with a burst of citrus to create a delectable chocolate-orange smell.
To prevent and fade stretch marks during your pregnancy, massage Tummy Butter on your bump at least once a day. As your body continues to grow, you may need to reapply more often. Make sure you hit all those stretch-mark-prone areas, including your breasts, thighs, and bottom. Our 8 oz Tummy Butter for pregnancy stretch marks gives Mamas the most value, while it's baby sister -- the 4 oz belly butter -- is perfect for wee bumps and convenient travel. For maximum stretch mark prevention, pair our belly butter with a pregnancy oil and stretch mark sugar scrub for a great pregnancy gift basket set.
TIP: If you take a look at the ingredients for our Tummy Butter (made from cocoa & shea butter) stretch mark treatment lotion, Rehab hormonal acne serum, and pregnancy stretch mark oil, you'll find vitamin E oil is an important ingredient in these organic formulas.
That's because while vitamin E is helpful for the proper functioning of our body's organs, it also has amazing topical applications that benefit pregnancy skin, hair, and nails.
Can vitamin E oil for stretch marks during pregnancy help? Can it help fade stretch marks I already have?
According to P. Kim Phillips, doctor of dermatology at the Mayo Clinic, early application of vitamin E oil is the best way to avoid stretch marks from pregnancy scarring.
Stretch marks occur during pregnancy when the skin is stretched so rapidly that the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, actually tears. Aside from weight changes, dry, itchy skin and poor hydration also increase the likelihood of stretch marks appearing during and after pregnancy.
Continue with Tummy Butter for stretch marks after delivery, where it’ll help avoid stretch marks, prevent postpartum stretch marks, fade new stretch marks and help minimize the appearance of C-section scars.
