  • Cocoa butter, but it didn't help a whole lot.

  • My mother swears by all natural 100% cocoa butter in the stick. She didn't tell me till after I ask and it was too late, she said she thought I knew, lol. However, I have used pure Shea butter with a little but of luck. I thought I had all the stretch marks I was ever going to get since I've been pregnant so many times. No, I've had a few new ones come up with this pregnancy and the Shea butter has made it less severe. They are under my breasts, TMI, sorry, so I'm not really that worried about them so I've not used the Shea butter as often as I would if it were my belly.
