Heptapeptide-7 is made up of seven amino acids that bolster collagen and support tissue, which will break down naturally once their job is fulfilled. Shea Butter returns moisture to the skin. Meadowfoam Seed Oil stops the loss of moisture. Olive Fruit Oil and Cocoa Seed Butter keep the skin soft and hydrated. Sodium Hyaluronate also keeps the skin hydrated. Pichia/Resveratrol Ferment Extract and Licorice Root Extract reduce the discoloration of stretch marks. May contain derivatives of soy.


Stretch Mark Cream should be used every day in the morning and evening by rubbing it into the affected areas in a circular motion.

Possible Side Effects

No warnings are placed on the product, other than the fact it should be kept out of your eyes. Worryingly, there is a possibility of there being derivatives of the allergen soy in the ingredients although this is uncertain because the company have not explained from where some of their ingredients have been sourced. It is advised that you should not use this cream while pregnant, as it has not been tested on pregnant women so the possible reactions are not known. A health care professional should be consulted in the event of a reaction occurring and you should cease use of the product as well.


A 5.7oz tube of Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream costs $89.95. This seems a bit steep but you do not have to pay for shipping, as it is free when you place an order over $75. This only applies to the U.S., as international shipping is not available at this time. Orders placed for addresses in Washington State will have a sales tax added onto their order.


Apothederm has a returns policy that allows you to return a product within 30 days of placing an order if you are dissatisfied with the product you receive. You have to contact Customer Service for a RGA number to write on the return package. All item content must be returned including instructions or it may affect your discount. You are limited to one return per product or SKU. If the product you receive is damaged, damaged packaging or products must be returned to the company. If you want to claim a shortage, you have to contact them within five days of receiving the product. Shipping charges are not included in the refund. There are no reviews from customers. Instead, Apothederm provides an independent study of 30 people that was carried out by a dermatologist that shows a high level of success with the product. However, the sample size is too small to make an accurate judgement on its effectiveness.


This product is easy to use and seems to have produced good results judging by the study that was carried out. There is a returns policy, which means that you can feel safe trying the product out. However, if you find that the product works for you, you might decide that the price does not. The price seems excessive and for Washington State customers there is an extra charge that makes it cost even more. It would be difficult to sustain long-term use of this cream at this price. The guarantee is restrictive though as you have only a small window of opportunity to try and return the product if it is not for you. The product’s effectiveness is not fully verified both without reviews and without lots of them to see how the product worked for a broad range of people. This cream might just be too damaging to the pocket without a guarantee of its effectiveness to meet your needs.
