This is a detailed review of the product Mum-To-Be Stretch Mark Oil, by the manufacturer Sanctuary Spa. The manufacturer, Sanctuary Spa, claims that this oil is able to prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
This stretch mark oil consists of the following ingredients:
- Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil
- Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil
- Rosa rubiginosa seed oil (rosehip)
- Perfume (fragrance)
- Dipropylene glycol
- Tocopheryl acetate
- Triticum vulgare (wheat-germ oil)
- Borago officinalis (borage) oil
- Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil
- Calophyllum tacamahaca (tamanu) oil
No side-effects are mentioned by the manufacturer; however, the formula contains some allergic items, such as nuts and wheat, therefore one must study the ingredients for any possible allergy to any of these. It would then be best to avoid the product.
Also, this product doesn’t contain clinically proven ingredients for fading stretch marks, such as medical grade silicone, Aloe Vera, Onion extract, Emu oil, lavender, safflower, or vitamin C.
It is recommended by the manufacturer that the oil be massaged into clean skin, ideally after a bath or shower. This is because wet skin is able to absorb the oil better. The manufacturer does not state a minimal daily application; the consumer must make this decision.
A 150 ml bottle of Mum-To-Be Stretch Mark Oil is available online on the manufacturer’s website. The company offers no discount for a bulk purchase. This product is sold in the United Kingdom and is only exported to France, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, and the United Arab Emirates. Therefore, you cannot purchase it directly from the manufacturer if ordering it from the United States. The product is also available to purchase on third-party sites such as Amazon, at $29.95 per bottle, excluding the shipping fee of $19.80.
The product may be returned within two weeks of purchase for a full refund. As part of the return policy you will need to provide your name, order number, the product, and a reason for returning the item. You will then be refunded within 30 days. It is unclear whether only unopened items may be returned.
Mum-To-Be Stretch Mark Oil Review ─ Conclusion
This product, Mum-To-Be Stretch Mark Oil, aimed at preventing and reducing the appearance of stretch marks, seems useful. Side effects are negligible; and the formula contains a substantial amount of the best ingredients for resolving stretch marks. On the downside, the company does not offer discounts on bulk purchases. This United Kingdom-produced product lacks a clear guarantee and a free trial option meaning that money may be wasted on an ineffective product.
