If you start using coco butter on your tummy early?

If you start using coco butter before your tummy starts to really show, will it keep you from getting stretch? Or just reduce how many you get? Or is it a waste of time? And what about you mix coco butter with Shea butter? ((You don't have to answer every question, I just had a lot lol))

  • Whether you get stretch marks or not really only has to do with genetics and the elasticity of your skin. Lotion will not keep you from getting them but it will keep your skin from itching when it stretches.

  • It's just a simple saying. Yes it is natural, yes I did enjoy it, but yes I did get stretch marks as a result from being pregnant.

  • I've used it religiously before I really showed and NO stretch marks after four pregnancies. but maybe I'm just lucky that way.
