Stretch mark removal?

I'm looking for a stretch mark cream that isn't as expensive as Mederma. Is the off-brand stuff just as good? Is there something much cheaper I can use? Will cocoa butter work on stretch marks that are already there, or is it just to prevent future stretch marks?

I really appreciate the help. Thanks ladies!

  • I used three different stretch mark creams/lotions (wish I could remember the names) while I was pregnant and after I had my baby and they're still there. I tried using the Cocoa Butter with Vitamin E and nothing worked. My stretch marks are still there, but they are slowly fading away.

  • I used Palmer's cocoa butter after I got them. They never completely dissappear, but they should fade considerably.

  • I don't think anything will work but have heard good things about Palmers.
