4 Natural Alternatives To Bio Oil For Preventing Stretch Marks
Posted on October 12 2018
Pregnancy is magical time in a woman’s life.
Your body blossoms beautifully and changes in the most incredible ways to support and carry the precious life that lies within.
As your belly grows, so does your excitement as the time nears for you to meet your little one. Of course your risk for developing stretch marks increases too, as your belly starts to stretch, and they are the last thing you want to have to worry about during this life changing time!
Fortunately, we have a butter for that!
In fact, we have a blend of five beautiful rich and creamy butters along with silky coconut oil and antioxidant rich Vitamin E. Together, these luxurious ingredients work to prep, protect and heal your skin before, during and after pregnancy so you can immerse yourself in this wonderful experience without having to worry about stretch marks.
Unfortunately, many conventional formulas contain synthetic ingredients that may put your health at risk and be harmful to your baby.
That’s where we come in!
Here are 7 effective stretch mark alternatives to Bio Oil.
Ooh la la! That’s what you’ll say when you experience the creamy, dreamy texture that is cocoa butter!
Brimming in fatty acids to provide deep down moisture, this butter is a must in any stretch mark formula.
Benefits of Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is designed to pamper your skin with mineral dense richness. Our Cocoa Butter Lotion, Hand & Body Cream, and Soap feature velvety-smooth formulas infused with cocoa butter's natural moisturizing and protective properties, leaving your skin soft and radiant. These products provide an everyday escape into opulence and relaxation, enhancing your skin's healthy glow.

When we think of aloe, we think of soothing hydration and aloe butter does not disappoint!
Aloe butter is jam-packed in nutrients to soothe, hydrate and reduce inflammation and it’s a natural source of lignin, which enhances its ability to draw other ingredients into the skin.
Where do we even begin?
Coconut oil has to be the most luxurious oils around, right? It’s rich in fatty acids and antioxidants to provide moisture that doesn’t quit!
Your skin will feel silky soft and smooth and glow with healthy radiance.
Benefits of Coconut Oil for Skin Care
Coconut oil offers skin benefits like moisturization, skin barrier repair, and protection against harmful bacteria. It also contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, potentially aiding in wound healing. After sun exposure, it can help neutralize free radicals, but it should not be applied to sunburns as it can trap in heat.
The crime de la crime of butters, there’s not much shea butter can’t do!
Shea butter has high concentrations of powerful antioxidants, including Vitamin A and E to nourish, heal and protect the skin. It’s ideal during pregnancy, because it helps to keep the skin soft and pliable.
It’s so safe it can even be used on baby when he or she arrives. Massage some into their skin for a relaxing baby massage!
This exotic, silky butter not only feels like pure indulgence when applied to the skin, its high Vitamin A content helps to keep the skin barrier healthy and prevent moisture loss through the pores, something that is essential for preventing stretch marks.
Also known as “liquid gold” Argan oil is packed in anti-inflammatory and deeply hydrating omega 3, linoleic acid and and antioxidant rich Vitamin E to provide dewy hydration for a golden glow and the healthiest skin of your life!
Benefits of Argan Oil
Argan oil is a versatile beauty elixir with numerous benefits for hair and skin. Rich in hydrating fatty acids like linoleic and oleic acids, it also contains vitamin E and antioxidants that shield against damage from free radicals. For hair, argan oil tames frizz while maintaining a lightweight feel and promoting hair health. It can also protect hair from heat and styling damage, making it a natural remedy for damaged hair. Additionally, research suggests it can enhance the quality of colored or dyed hair. Argan oil hydrates and improves skin texture, offering relief for dry skin and conditions like eczema and psoriasis. However, it may not have a significant impact on issues like acne scars or stretch marks. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful for mild wounds and burns. Some studies suggest it may have anti-aging properties by enhancing skin elasticity. When choosing argan oil, opt for pure, fragrance-free varieties in dark glass bottles to maximize its benefits. It's advisable to perform a patch test before widespread use. Overall, argan oil is a valuable addition to your skincare and haircare routine, offering multiple advantages.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is an antioxidant super star and will help to neutralize free radicals that may age your skin, (yes, it’s not just your facial skin that can show signs of aging!) as well as aid in tissue repair to keep your skin healthy and stretch mark free.
If you do get a few stretch marks, then this potent antioxidant will help to fade them away!
