Stretch Mark Treatment - Ingredients in Detail
The best way to remove stretch marks is to prevent them before they appear.
According to the Mayo Clinic, stretch marks are defined as a literal stretching of the skin. When skin is overstretched, the production of collagen is interrupted. Men and women require collagen for keeping skin firm, however, skin will tear without collagen. That forms a scar, which is known as a stretch mark. The Mayo Clinic asserts stretch marks can be caused by pregnancy, weight gain, medication use, hormonal fluctuations, or adrenal gland diseases. Stretch marks can occur in both men and women, although women are more prone to get them than men. A person may also be at risk for stretch marks if there is a family history of stretch marks or if there is frequent use of corticosteroid medications.
Detailed looked at the ingredients to remove stretch marks:
Hyaluronic acid for stretch marks
Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant (moisture-binding substance). Found naturally in the body, 50% of this material is found in the skin. Many people use hyaluronic acid to heal wounds or moisturize the skin. In the body, hyaluronic acid is really a type of connective tissue called ground substance. This substance cushions and separates the connective tissue cells allowing connective tissue to have durable abilities. When an individual is young, large amounts of hyaluronic acid keeps skin pliable and smooth. However, the amount of hyaluronic acid will decrease as a person ages. This is why it is important to maintain the integrity of the skin by applying hyaluronic acid regularly to keep skin from sagging.
Coconut oil for stretch marks
Coconut oil is obtained from the kernel of a mature coconut. Coconut oil boasts many different anti-aging benefits for the skin. It contains a large quantity of antioxidants that prevent everything from premature aging to degenerative diseases. Coconut oil also aids in the prevention of sagging skin as well. One of the useful benefits of coconut oil is in ridding the skin of stretch marks.
- Due to the moisturizing qualities of coconut oil to both the dermis and the epidermis, stretch marks are diminished after regular use.
- The skin is able to become more elastic while promoting the dermis to produce more collagen.
- Coconut oil is also an anti-inflammatory which allows stretch marks to fade at a faster rate.
- High in scar-healing vitamin E, coconut oil stamps out stretch marks.
Vitamin B5 for stretch marks
Stretch marks will diminish if vitamin B5 is included in a daily diet. The highest sources of vitamin b5 or pantothenic acid can be found in mushrooms, cheese, and oily fish. You can also intake this vitamin through your skin care products, and there is a high concentration of Vitamin B5 included in our stretch mark treatment.
- DL-Panthenol is a pro-vitamin (a substance that may be converted by the body to a vitamin).
- This pro-vitamin is very effective at repairing skin damage like stretch marks.
- Some sources of DL-Panthenol are cod-liver oil, egg yolks, carrots, and green vegetables.
Matrixyl 3000 works by stimulating the natural elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid in human skin cells. Matrixyl 3000 is best known for its ability to boost collagen production. Collagen is made up of two long strands of amino acids. When these amino acids are broken down they form smaller chains called peptides. The peptides signal to the collagen that more collagen is needed and also stimulates the collagen that has been broken down. Matrixyl 3000 manages skin at the cellular level, thereby enabling skin to refill lost collagen and returning a healthy appearance to stomach, buttocks, and thighs.
