There are two forms of stretch marks: striae rubrae and striae albae. Striae rubrae are considered the early form, which are often red, sometimes slightly raised and don’t recur. Over time these stretch marks lighten and develop a pale, wrinkled appearance known as striae albae, which also don’t recur but are permanent.

Striae rubrae respond better to treatment, so it is recommended to treat stretch marks when they first appear.

Stretch marks (striae) are indented streaks on the body that typically appear on the stomach, breasts, hips or bottom. They occur when the dermis (the thickest layer of skin) has to stretch quickly due to rapid weight gain or a growth spurt.

They're very common in pregnant women, especially during the last trimester, but they can occur anytime the skin becomes overstretched, such as rapid growth spurts during puberty or when bodybuilding.

While stretch marks are permanent, there are clinically proven ways to reduce their appearance, both via topicals and devices.Discover the most effective treatments here.

Our products are rooted in science. We only create products using ingredients and treatments that have been clinically proven to treat stretch marks in medical journals. And we ensure any hero ingredients are used at the doses used in the clinical trials.

We’re extremely confident that our products will make an impact on stretch marks which is why we provide a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Redefining Stretch Mark Cream

Our innovative formula tackles stretch marks in two ways:

1) Instant results: Over a ten-minute period, it will plump and smooth the appearance of stretch marks, which is why you may also feel a heating sensation when first applied. This is designed to give you immediate confidence, but it is a short-term effect as opposed to being a permanent solution.

2) Long-term results: Our formula is powered by TECA™ for its stretch mark minimising properties. In an independent study of 40 postpartum women with stretch marks, a TECA™ formulation reduced the length of stretch marks by 26%, compared to 3%, and the width by 40%, compared to 6% after three months. It was also twice as effective at reducing the intensity of colour of the stretch marks compared to the placebo during this period.

While this was a three-month study, results can also be seen much quicker. Some users have reported a permanent reduction in the appearance of their stretch marks in as little as 2-4 weeks; however, we recommend a minimum 12-week treatment – in line with the clinical trial – to maximise results.

Microneedling device

Several studies have proved the effectiveness of microneedling in the treatment of stretch marks, especially over other modalities. Microneedling studies referred to throughout our website were based on 3 sessions using a 1.5mm microneedling tool/dermaroller at 4-week intervals.

Therefore, you can expect to see results from our microneedling tool following three sessions at 4-week intervals, if not sooner.

Absolutely! 90 days is the minimum period we recommend using our products for, but you can continue using the products for as long as you like, especially if you are continuing to see improvements. You may also choose to keep using our Redefining Stretch Mark Cream on an ad hoc basis when you would like to enjoy its instant plumping and smoothing benefits.

We haven't used any ingredients which are classified as unsafe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, such as tretinoin or hydroquinone. And our Co-founder, Meg used our products throughout her second pregnancy.

However, it's always best to seek advice from your doctor or health care practitioner.
