Pregnacare® Stretch Cream is a gentle massage cream, specially formulated to care for stretching skin during pregnancy.
Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body where the skin has been stretched. They occur when the lower layer of the skin containing collagen and elastin, which give our skin its elasticity, becomes damaged by a rapid weight loss or weight gain, such as in pregnancy. The purple appearance of the stretch mark on the skin is caused by the small blood vessels beneath the surface, which become more visible with stretching.
Pregnacare® Stretch Cream’s unique formula contains vitamins C and E and botanical extracts such as natural extract of Calendula and Evening Primrose Oil, which together gently protect, nourish and moisturise stretching skin.
Pregnacare® Stretch Cream is safe and effective during the months of pregnancy and may be continued to be applied after giving birth, to help the contracting skin to stay supple.
In UK trials with pregnant women, 73% of the women reported that their skin was suppler after just two weeks of applying Pregnacare® Stretch Cream.
