Stretch marks are common but they often remain a source of discomfort and anxiety for pregnant women, this can be explained in particular because they are often considered unsightly. However, there is a way to prevent them naturally and effectively with vegetable oils. By combining the benefits of several vegetable oils in a single product, as with Generous and Soothing Oil , it is possible to prevent stretch marks during your pregnancy. Combined with the benefits of our First Treatment Stretch Mark Cream , your skin will be protected from stretch marks during pregnancy.

The origin of stretch marks

Stretch marks are mainly due to hormonal variations experienced during pregnancy for the proper development of the baby. Which explains why pregnant women are more likely to appear during pregnancy. But stretch marks can also be genetic and be linked to hormones, a lack of elasticity of the skin or even appear during rapid weight loss or gain. These hormonal upheavals lead to a loss of skin quality, which in turn leads to the appearance of stretch marks. Additionally, your growing belly and rapid weight gain cause the skin to distend quickly and excessively, which damages collagen and elastin fibers. This is what causes stretch marks to appear in the form of pink, red or even purple streaks, which once healed become white stretch marks.

Areas affected by stretch marks

The areas most affected and sensitive to the appearance of stretch marks are:

  • The belly
  • Chest
  • The buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Hips

It is important to apply creams and oils for pregnancy to protect and maintain good hydration in these areas prone to stretch marks .

Why use vegetable oil?

Vegetable oils are rich in vitamins A, E, B, as well as minerals and antioxidants, which stimulate collagen production and help cell regeneration. If an oil for pregnancy is applied to prevent stretch marks, it helps reduce the risk of stretch marks appearing and reduces dry skin. In fact, the oils soften the skin to better support the stretching of the skin during pregnancy. In addition, vegetable oils help nourish the skin, thus preserving its elasticity. We recommend applying a specific pregnancy oil from the second trimester, when your skin begins to stretch due to the development of your baby.

How to choose the right oil for pregnancy?

Several criteria must be taken into account when choosing the right oil for pregnancy . In particular, it is necessary to look at whether:

  • The oil is compatible with your pregnancy and breastfeeding: not all oils are, so choose specific pregnancy oils to avoid taking any risks (essential oils are not recommended during the 1st trimester and some are also recommended for the second and the third trimester).
  • The texture of the oil is neither too sticky nor too greasy: for you to enjoy using this oil during pregnancy, it is important that you enjoy massaging yourself with it.
  • The active ingredients are interesting for the prevention of stretch marks: choose an oil generous in vegetable oils for more virtues and benefits.
  • The composition of your oil for pregnancy is certified organic: the certification guarantees a healthier composition, better for your health and that of your baby (without endocrine disruptors, without mineral oils from petrochemicals, without ingredients questionable for health.. .).
  • The scent of the oil is pleasant: a pleasant scent but without allergens (very rare, but we managed it for our Generous Soothing Oil).
