clinically proven ingredients
Darutoside is a powerful ingredient proven in clinical testing to combat and repair stretch marks by regenerating collagen & elastin fibers. These are the fibers that keep the skin matrix strong and elastic. As the skin stretches, these fibers expand but when pushed too far they can break. Stretch mark prevention comes from strengthening these fibers so they can stretch more and bounce back instead of snapping. Stretch Mark repair comes from fueling new fibers. As the skin heals, new Collagen & Elastin fibers help smooth and strengthen the skin making damage less obvious.
