Does this belly butter only work for the tummy or can you use it on the buttocks?
It can be applied to all stretch mark-prone areas (tummy, hips, breasts, thighs, anywhere you feel like you’re growing) in the afternoon, evening, or both. The Tummy Butter and Bump Gloss are recommended to be used together, plus each contains oils proven to help aid in stretch mark prevention and fading of scars.
I'd like to purchase the trio as a gift for my pregnant wife, but she isn't particularly fond of certain smells. Is the scent of this really potent?
This is a great question! The Indulge Body Polish smells like peppermint vanilla, Tummy Butter has a 'chocolate orange' scent, and Bump Gloss is lightly scented with calming lavender.

Is this product safe to use while pregnant?
All of our products are made specifically for pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding moms. You can trust all of our ingredients have been carefully selected just for you during this wonderful time. Tummy Butter is one of our best sellers for expectant mamas and is perfectly safe to use! We always suggest that you check the ingredients of a cream or oil and discuss its safety with your obstetrician before using it. If you have any further concerns, please feel free to take or email our ingredient list to your OB to discuss further.
I’ve used the belly gloss, but wondering if I also need the belly butter and scrub. What does the stretch mark combo do?
Tummy Butter and Bump Gloss are recommended to be used together because each product contains oils proven to help aid in stretch mark prevention and fading of scars. Tummy Butter in particular, works wonders for itchiness. And the scrub locks in moisture along with the duo of oil and butter.
What's the difference between tummy butter and oil? Which one is better?
We may be biased but both products are great at what they do. They can be used separately but are also great together. The Tummy Butter is a cream that comes in a jar. The Bump Gloss is an oil that comes in a bottle. To help prevent stretch marks, we recommend Tummy Butter & Bump Gloss stretch mark oil. Tummy Butter can be applied to all stretch mark-prone areas (tummy, hips, breasts, thighs, anywhere you feel like you’re growing) in the afternoon, evening, or both.
Tummy Butter and Bump Gloss are recommended to be used together (bundle & save), plus each contains oils proven to help aid in stretch mark prevention and fading of scars. Keep in mind your application process will depend on what fits in your schedule. If you do start feeling like you have an itchy tummy apply the belly butter or if your skin starts to feel dry later in the day, apply the butter or oil.
We recommend using the Bump Gloss oil in the morning (to all areas mentioned above if needed) while still wet in the shower (be careful it can make the shower floor slippery). Since it is an oil - a little goes a long way but you want to make sure that while massaging any oil or butter in you do so gently but keep in mind that the 'massaging' is what will bring blood flow to the surface, and this will also help aid in stretch mark prevention.
If you are early in your pregnancy, you may not require a lot of either product. As you grow, you will need to apply the butter and/or oil at least 2x's daily to prevent the appearance of stretch marks. Most of our clients (depending if singletons or multiples you are carrying) usually purchase a small amount in the beginning stages and a larger amount later, and this can last throughout your entire pregnancy.
Does this work after pregnancy?
Yes! Our Tummy Butter and ReModel stretch mark serum have shown great results for existing and postpartum stretch marks and scars. Every mama is different - many factors are involved. It can depend if yours are still red or purple, if have they been exposed to the sun, etc. Please keep in mind that stretch marks are permanent scars and will never completely go away, but they can fade into almost invisible silvery lines. Again, each individual is different and we encourage you to try samples if you are unsure how your skin may react. Please also feel free to read our reviews here: https://www.thespoiledmama.com/pages/reviews.
Does this belly cream work on African American skin as well? I noticed your Tummy Butter description says red stretch marks.
Absolutely, our products are made for all Mamas! Our influencer, Ebbie Drayton (@naturallyehhalo on Instagram), loves our Tummy Butter, and is stretch mark free! Take a look at her glowing belly in her recent post here: http://bit.ly/2GL8EiR
Why are these pregnancy products so expensive? I get they have organic ingredients and are safe for pregnancy.
We understand that our product prices range in the high end. We ONLY use only the finest ingredients we can source. Each product contains oils that are proven to help heal your skin. For example, our Tummy Butter and Bump Gloss each contain significant amounts of Seabuckthorn oil known to help with growing/stretching skin. This oil alone is over $1,000 for a gallon. Another favored oil in our products is Tamanu oil. This oil is cold-pressed to make a greenish-yellow oil. It takes 100 kilograms of tamanu fruit, which one tree produces annually, to yield just 5 kilograms of cold-pressed oil!
These are only 2 of the cold-pressed oils we use in our products. We also practice responsible manufacturing, source ingredients ONLY from sustainable farmers, and use recyclable packaging.
Even our shipping peanuts are made from biodegradable potato starch, so we can help ensure a brighter future for future generations. In addition, our proprietary pregnancy skincare products are WITHOUT harsh preservatives, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, and other icky toxins. I hope this helps explain why our products may cost more than Palmers Cocoa Butter or another stretch mark treatment on the market. It is similar to why organic veggies and fruit cost more or why a bottle of wine can cost more than another.
Are your pregnancy products gluten-free?
Tummy Butter and Indulge Body Polish do not contain any gluten products; however, they are manufactured in the same facility that manufactures products that do contain gluten. Please print the ingredients list from the product page to take or fax to your healthcare provider to see if this would be safe.
Can this be used on my breast? I’m 7 months pregnant, and stretch marks are on my breasts. They are purple at the moment.
Our products are made specifically for pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding moms. You can trust that our ingredients have been carefully selected for you during this beautiful time.
It is safe to use wherever you are growing; however, we recommend *not* placing it directly on your nipples before breastfeeding.
Would the tummy butter and stretch mark oil work well for overweight people with stretch marks that are not pregnant?
Although our products are made with Mamas in mind, anyone who'd love to use toxin-free skincare can use our products. Please remember that it works best for new (reddish/purplish) stretch marks. Feel free to check out Remodel Serum. Some Mamas use both after pregnancy for maximum stretch mark fading results.
Can this be used for something like weight loss or is it just for pregnancy? I’m on a major weight loss journey and have over 100 lbs to lose, and am already seeing stretch marks. Wondering if this will help my shrinking body or it is only for growing bodies.
Awesome question! Although our products are marketed towards pregnant women, anyone who loves toxin-free skincare can use our products. Many moms use our products postpartum as their bodies are shrinking. We hope you give us a try, and congrats on your weight loss journey!
Is this product safe for use on the breast while breastfeeding?
It is safe to use on your breasts during pregnancy, and once your baby is born, it is safe for you and your baby while breastfeeding. We recommend not to place it on your nipples prior to breastfeeding. You can use it everywhere else and can place it on your nipples after breastfeeding to help with cracked or bleeding nipples. However, if you notice that while breastfeeding that your nipples become dry and cracked, we recommend our 100% Organic Nipstick, which is a salve that melts on contact and also doubles as an excellent diaper rash ointment. All ingredients are safe for ingestion and lanolin-free, so it does not need to be washed off before nursing.
