Sometimes life is hard on a body. It presents twists and turns, ups and down, that come in the form of babies, extra weight gained due to stress, and even challenging growth spurts.
We’re not saying that we would necessarily do without any of these experiences, because we know that with change comes great people, lessons, and moments. But, we do sometimes wish we could limit the lines on our bodies that serve as hash marks for various milestones in life. We’re perfectly content keeping mental tally marks beyond minimal markings.
If you have a few stretch marks, as we do, that you’d like to see fade away even slightly, or if you’re anticipating a time in your life when stretch marks could turn your body into a permanent score card, you can use the following vegan stretch mark creams and oils.
The Spoiled Mama Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks
The Spoiled Mama’s Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks cream is the company’s number one best-selling product. It helps prevent scars so you can get back the skin you love after your pregnancy. This vegan stretch mark cream has a yummy orange-chocolate scent. It contains pure cocoa butter and 11 nourishing oils, including organic rosehip, tamanu, and sea buckthorn. Essential fatty acids in this vegan stretch mark cream boost collagen production and cell regeneration.
Earth Mama Body Butter
Earth Mama Body Butter is all natural, so it’s safe for pregnancy. It’s made with organic Borage oil and Neroli pure essential oil, combined with super moisturizing organic shea butter. Earth Mama Body Butter is an herb-infused formula that helps keep stretching skin itch-free and it assists in the prevention of morning sickness due to added calendula.
Erbaviva Stretch Mark Oil
Erbaviva is a trusted organic beauty company that now makes a vegan stretch mark oil. This stretch mark oil has organic body care certification and it’s formulated with only natural products that have been proven to be cruelty-free. The folks behind Erbaviva Stretch Mark Oil have years of experience with herbal medicine.
While many stretch mark creams are marketed to pregnant women, they’re really formulations that can help prevent, and smooth, stretch marks for anyone. You can use these creams, and oils, on your upper arms, breasts, bottom, thighs, and any place that might benefit from them.
