Possible Side Effects

No possible side effects are listed, and the product is safe for use during pregnancy. The inclusion of natural, organic ingredients makes the risk of irritation very minimal, though the inclusion of cetearyl alcohol does mean there is a small risk of irritation.

The Gaia Belly Butter does not come with any sort of product guarantee. The company also does not permit returns unless the item received by the customer was incorrect, and even then the return costs for shipping must be covered by the consumer. The product website does not contain any reviews, and the customer feedback on third-party sites is minimal and mixed. Some customers loved the product and stated it was very effective and moisturizing, while others stated they did not see any results. The lack of a guarantee and limited positive feedback is cause to doubt the effectiveness of the product.


The Gaia Belly Butter does contain a wide variety of certified organic ingredients, providing assurance that the product is safe and natural. Several customers have provided feedback stating they were satisfied with the effectiveness of the product, and that it provided adequate moisture and helped prevent the formation of stretch marks. Other reviews were not as positive, stating that there were no results from using the product. The manufacturer does not offer any sort of product guarantee, and does not allow for returns if the product is ineffective. The product is also substantially more expensive than other stretch mark creams on the market, making it seem like a less than ideal option when searching for a stretch mark cream.
