Possible Side Effects
The oil is only meant for topical, external use. It should not be used on skin that is broken and they suggest that skin irritation is a possible side effect, though it is rare. In such an event, use of this product should be discontinued and a licensed doctor should be immediately consulted. It is advised to keep this product away from children.
This stretch mark removal treatment costs $38.50 on the manufacturer’s website for 100ml bottle. There are not bulk purchasing orders available.
The manufacturer does provide a guarantee on their website but only on products that are defective due to manufacturing defects, within 30 days from the date of purchase. Fulfillment mistakes that they make resulting in the shipment of an incorrect product will also be accepted for return within 30 days from the date of purchase. However, the manufacturer does not offer a satisfaction money back guarantee. In other words, used and/or opened products cannot be returned. This raises concerns about the quality and effectiveness of this product. We did find several testimonials on the company’s website and they are all positive, which is to be expected.
This seems to be a reasonably good product for stretch mark removal. It does not contain harmful additives like mineral oils, sulfates, petrochemicals, ureas, synthetic fragrances, etc. The formulation is intensely concentrated and cheap mineral oils are not used as fillers as they are in several other mainstream products. They suggest that the ingredients are pure and tested, by research, however, we did not find clinical studies to back up all of their ingredients. They say that it is good for pregnant women as it does not contain any toxic chemicals and that it reduces itching in the belly, and improves both skin texture and skin elasticity. The company has mentioned that the results may vary from individual to individual and do not back up the many claims made with a money back guarantee, which is a big negative for us. If they are so confident, why not offer a money back guarantee? The manufacturer has not mentioned GMP certification and or that it is FDA recognized, this raises a few concerns about the product quality and manufacturing process.
