When I asked my mom she swore my coco butter and vitamin E. When I tried them they just made the color fade but that was it. I guess it all depends on what you want it to do for you in the end.

Have you tried the cocoa butter creams?  Ummm Vit e and collagen lotions.  Also if an area itches do not scratch it bc that is where the mark will appear (dont know why so dont ask LOL). I got my marks on the top of rear end , they disappeared on their own andnow i have a few on the front of one leg.

Did you ever hear of Strivectin?  Not sure if it really works, but that is what it claims!

I had always heard cocoa butter, but when I was pregnant a girl at Bath & Body Works told me to use Shea butter instead.  Worked beautifully!!!  I was HUGE in my last month...I didn't end up with a single stretch mark!!!  Supposed to help fade existing ones too over time.  Plus, it has the most luxurious texture & smells wonderful!!

stretch marks are literally scars from your skin stretching so theres really no way to get rid of them. They're pink/purple when your skin tears and then white when it heals. Vit E and mederma scar treatment. cocoa butter works before you get them (and to help prevent getting more). hope that helps good luck.
