Palmer's and pregnancy: The Cocoa Butter Formula for stretch marks

Because of cocoa butter's ability to condition and nourish the skin, it has become a well-known ingredient that is effective for reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks. It's all thanks to cocoa butter's moisturising properties to keep the skin hydrated, soft and smooth.

About stretch marks

As your body grows during pregnancy, your skin stretches to accommodate the baby growing inside and unfortunately that can result in stretch marks. Stretch marks are formed when the body goes through a spurt of growth that is faster on the inside than on the outside. This causes the collagen fibres deep within the skin to stretch and tear, resulting in scar tissue or stretch marks.

Stretch marks are narrow, streak-like lines that can develop on the surface of the skin. They are also sometimes known as stria or striae.

Although there is no way to cure stretch marks completely, you can do a number of things to improve their appearance.
