Stretch Mark Experiment Before & After results

Before & After results you have to see to believe!!

Palmer's tested our highly rated Stretch Mark Lotion against a popular competitor, (who had nice packaging but no clinical claims), to see which had better results.

The study was conducted with 46 real women over 6 weeks in a completely blind test, and each woman received their products in an unbranded jar labelled 'PRODUCT A' and 'PRODUCT B', so there was no bias on the brand or packaging.

The results identified that a resounding 8/10 participants preferred the 184 year old brand Palmer's (worth a quarter of the price to its pricier alternative).

Alexandra – QLD

“I was surprised (always the sceptic!) and very pleased that after 6 weeks of daily use, 6+ months postpartum, the appearance of my pregnancy stretch marks had improved so significantly to the point that I had to go looking for them. The cream also left my skin feeling hydrated all day which was a lovely bonus. I will definitely be telling my pregnant friends!”

"I began this experience with little hope, but by the end, I was pleasantly surprised. After four weeks of daily application, I noticed a significant improvement in my skin. Additionally, the product's consistency and delightful scent made me feel like I was pampering myself every time I used it."

“I was really surprised by the results. I’ve struggled to find a product that has worked for my darker complexion. I’ve tried bio oil and other stretch mark specific products that didn’t give me results. This product improved my stretch marks in appearance and smoothness by also smelling great and feeling good on my skin. Would absolutely recommend. “
