Embracing Change with Confidence: Palmer's Stretch Mark Range

In the journey of life, our bodies often go through significant changes - pregnancy, puberty, weight fluctuations, and muscle building, to name a few. These milestones, while enriching, can leave their marks, quite literally, in the form of stretch marks.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula for Stretch Marks range is a testament to the brand’s commitment to providing solutions that cater to the natural changes our bodies endure. Stretch marks (Striae distensae), are a common part of life's journey, affecting countless individuals across various stages. Whether it’s the glow of pregnancy, the transitions of puberty, the results of weight changes, or the gains from muscle building, Palmer’s offers specialised skincare support to navigate these changes with confidence and care.

At the heart of Palmer’s Stretch Mark range is a blend of potent, natural ingredients, including Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Collagen, Elastin, Vitamin E, Argan Oil, Centella Asiatica, and Lutein. This powerful combination works synergistically to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, while also providing relief from itching and discomfort. Significantly, the absence of Retinol (Vitamin A) makes the range safe for use during all stages of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Dr. Liz Dawes-Higgs, a leading Australian Dermatologist, sheds light on the science of stretch marks. “Stretch marks appear as a result of rapid stretching and expansion of dermal tissue. These marks are a visible indication of the skin’s response to increased tension, where the underlying collagen and elastin fibres undergo dramatic stress, leading to the formation of these distinct linear patterns,” she explains.

“Scientifically-backed skincare ingredients may assist across this complex process, in order to provide deep lasting moisturisation, aid in reducing the appearance of stretch marks and also provide relief from skin discomfort during stretching. A number of ingredients that may be beneficial are found within the Palmer's Stretch Mark range,” said Dr Dawes-Higgs.

A user study of women aged 18-49 revealed that over 98% reported improvements in skin elasticity, reduction in the appearance, size, and severity of stretch marks, and improved skin texture and tone, all within as little as four weeks of consistent use.*

Palmer's Stretch Mark Lotion, a hero product within the range, has received recent awards from Beauty Heaven, Prevention Australia, and Bounty Parents, as well as consistently receiving high consumer ratings as seen on Amazon with an average 4.6 stars from over 45,000 reviews, affirming its reliability and relevance. For under $20, this product has availability across more than 2300+ stores nationally, as well as through the Palmer’s Australia website.
