Apothederm™ Stretch Mark Cream Review

The best beauty advice I was given during my three pregnancies was to use a stretch mark cream twice a day. Fortunately despite having three back to back pregnancies, my stretch marks are very faint in my opinion due to “luck” and my diligent use of a good cream.

Apothederm™ Stretch Mark Cream takes the ultimate preventative to the next level by combing four natural emollients including shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and meadowfoam seed oil. In addition, the SmartPeptide formula uses the “power-packed action of the exclusive patened heptapeptide-7 along with resveratrol, licorice extract, brightening amino acides, algae extract, sodium hyaluronate and other advanced ingredients that work to fade the appearance of stretch marks and nourish the skin.”

I used this Apothederm™ Stretch Mark Cream for the recommended two week time period before looking for results on my skin in my abdominal area. I did notice that my stretch marks after 16 days looked less silver in color and more faded into my natural skin color. I do have sensitive skin due to eczema but I didn’t have any problems at all with sensitivity to this cream. The cream has a very nice rich feeling and I was surprised how quickly it absorbed into my skin. A little goes a long way too because just a bit spreads out very nicely on my skin. I was also very appreciative that it is fragrance free, paraben-free and not tested on animals.

According to the Apothederm™ website in clinical studies of 30 subjects:

  • 70% of participants had visible improvement of stretch marks in 14 days
  • 90% of participants had overall improvement after 12 weeks of continued use

So how does it work?

Key Benefits:

  • Impressive results seen in just 2 weeks & continued improvement at week 12
