In this article, we are reviewing a product called Weleda Stretch Marks Massage Oil. The maker’s of this massage oil claim that it will help to diminish the visible appearance of stretch marks, increase skin elasticity, smoothen the skin, and maintain moisture. The manufacturer claims that it is dermatologically tested.
- Evening Primrose
- Sea Buckthorn
- White Mallow
- Wild Rose
These ingredients play various roles in improving the health of your skin. For instance, one study showed that the combination of bitter almond oil and massage reduced stretch mark development in pregnant women. Evening primrose oil is rich in vitamin E. It also contains gamma linolenic acid, an Omega-6 fatty acid compound also known for helping to prevent stretch marks.
It is recommended that you massage the oil in for two to three times a day from the beginning of pregnancy up to the end of the breastfeeding period. Use light circular movements over thighs, bottom, breasts, and tummy.

Conclusion of Our Weleda Stretch Marks Massage Oil Review
Looking for the right product for your stretch marks is not something easy. Weleda Stretch Marks Massage Oil is a promising product for reducing stretch marks. All the ingredients in it are natural. It is affordable, despite that the manufacturer’s price is higher than the online retailer’s price. The good thing is that you have a choice to either buy from the manufacturer or from the retailer. Unlike many manufacturers, this is one of the manufacturers that care about your satisfaction. They offer a 30-day money-back guarantee so that you can return the product if you are unsatisfied with the results. However, a guarantee period of 60 days or more is better because it provides you with more time to determine its effectiveness. Moreover, you need to use it from the beginning of pregnancy until after breastfeeding. Therefore, 30 days is way too short. We are worried that the amount of each of the ingredients contained in the product is not indicated. Even though they are natural, taking more than needed can be dangerous, while taking less can provide no effect on your skin. This information should be disclosed for the safety and knowledge of the customer. There are no user reviews on the manufacturer’s website. For all these reasons, we suggest that you skip this product and seek one with a longer guarantee period and one that its ingredients amounts are fully disclosed, to ensure your protection.
