Basq vegetarian and cruelty-free beauty products are quickly gaining a reputation among expecting and new moms. Created by two friends who are also moms, they created Basq due to a lack of products that they felt were truly safe and effective to use during pregnancy. While expectant moms experiencing skin changes, such as stretch marks, were in the forefront of their minds while creating their product, their products are also perfect for those who are losing weight, as well as who have sensitive or mature skin. Basq promises that all of their products are free of paraben, phthalate and animal testing.
Basq’s line of vegetarian and cruelty-free stretch marks products is their most popular line. Their signature Advanced Stretch Mark Butter has received praise from the likes of model Heidi Klum, actress Marcia Cross and singer Sheryl Crow. Named “Best Butter” by Pregnancy and Newborn magazine, and having received an iParenting Award for 2010, the Advanced Stretch Mark Butter has received rave reviews among many beauty review forums. Because it can take several months to see new stretch marks, they can sometimes appear after pregnancy. Therefore, Basq Advanced Stretch Mark Butter is great to use both during, and after pregnancy.
Advanced Stretch Mark Butter is also great for use after other life events that can cause stretch marks to appear, such as weight loss and growth spurts. For those who are genetically prone to stretch marks, the cream can be used twice a day for preventative measures. The stretch mark-fighting ingredients in the butter includes ingredients that have been proven to aid in preventing and healing stretch marks, such as darutoside, algisium C, essential oils, shea butter, jojoba butter, borage, rosehip and grapeseed oil.
For those who don’t have to worry about stretch marks, they also offer several other lines aimed to manage and promote beautiful skin. Their Energizing Boost line works through offering products containing tea and aromatherapy oils to energize and revitalize. For those with chronically dry skin, Basq’s Goodbye Dry line contains body lotions, body scrubs and body oils all containing omega rich oils to provide ultimate moisture to the skin.
