Let’s be clear: there is nothing wrong with stretch marks, but if you’re trying to prevent them during pregnancy… using shea butter might help.
The reason stretch marks happen is because the body grows and the skin isn’t able to keep up. Keeping your skin moisturized will help to prevent stretch marks from forming.
Shea butter, when unrefined, unbleached and raw, is full of antioxidants, phytosterols, essential fatty acids, and vitamins A & E. Shea butter helps to regenerate skin cells by protecting and strengthening collagen.
Here’s your reminder that whatever your skin looks like: it is beautiful. If you are looking to reduce the chance of forming stretch marks from pregnancy, using shea butter might help - but in no way is it necessary.
