Do You Know What's In Your Stretch Mark Cream?

If you have stretch marks that you would like to minimize or get rid of entirely, you might want to try one of the many creams and lotions that are on the market today. Creams and lotions that target stretch marks can be found in drugstores and pharmacies, and are usually over-the-counter medications. You can also get prescription strength cream or lotion from your dermatologist. This type of stretch mark cream can be effective in the process of stretch mark minimization. Some of them even claim to even remove stretch marks of all kinds, forms, and shapes.

Many people try these creams in the hope of getting rid of  stretch marks, without all the costs that come along with medical consultations and dermatologists. There are also costly fees for non-medical and medical procedures to remove stretch marks. Stretch mark creams and lotions seem like the more realistic approach to take if you are on a budget.

It is good to know what is included in these creams, so that you can choose the right one for your skin type and budget. The following ingredients are found in a variety of stretch mark lotions and creams.

  • Liposomes are fatty substances that hold the moisturizers and oils together.
  • Collagen helps the skin and tissues to heal.
  • Vitamin E is used to put the skin’s aging cells to a halt. It protects the skin and replenishes the cells, so they become stronger.
