One of the skin problems faced by women today is stretch marks, which is fairly common during and after pregnancy. With the passing of time, the purple-colored marks left on the skin will lighten but may never completely go away. As such, the best thing to do is to take steps to prevent the formation of stretchmarks. There are many creams on the market to prevent stretch marks, but the effectiveness of the cream will depend largely upon the ingredients it contains. If you want to use only the best pregnancy cream for stretch marks prevention, then understand what these important and effective ingredients are:

Vitamin E - A good substance that helps fight stretch marks is Vitamin E, also called tocopherol. It has the ability to make the skin more elastic. Because your skin has become more elastic, it can stretch without forming stretch marks which usually comes as a result of the tearing of skin tissue. Using the natural ingredient, Vitamin E, helps improve the overall appearance of the skin without needing to use artificial means.

Vitamin D (from sun or supplement) - Vitamin D, another natural ingredient is important to many functions of the body, including that of promoting skin health. There are times that the skin needs to repair itself and this cannot be possible without the nourishment provided by this vitamin. Studies have also shown that with the intake of Vitamin D, stretch marks are prevented and existing stretch marks appear to lighten up.

Aloe Vera - Aloe Vera is the liquid, or juice, that comes from the leaves of the aloe plant. This plant is truly amazing. It can serve as an alternative medicine by soothing the redness and inflammation of the skin. This ability also applies to stretchmarks, and the use of Aloe Vera during pregnancy can reduce the appearance of stretchmarks you already have as well as prevent new ones from developing.

Shea Butter - Shea Butter is the whitish or yellowish fatty extract from the Shea tree, grown in Africa. It is one of the best possible moisturizers for the skin and can promote and improve elasticity, preventing the damage that causes stretch marks.

From the edible fat of the cocoa bean comes the cocoa butter, otherwise known as theobroma oil. The common uses of cocoa butter include the production of chocolate and other food products. One of the recommended stretch mark creams during pregnancy uses the sweetly-scented cocoa butter as its main ingredient. Stretchmarks are prevented and the skin remains supple and moist with the use of this emollient.

Grapefruit (citrus) Extract - The Grapefruit Seed Extract is taken from the seeds, pulp and white membranes of grapefruit. Another name for this extract is citrus seed extract. During pregnancy, having a dose of grapefruit seed extract helps in promoting a healthy, stretch marks free skin, thanks to its antioxidant properties.

Squalene Oil - Squalene oil is commonly derived from shark liver or from a variety of plant sources including olives, amaranth, and more. It serves as a good moisturizer because it can easily penetrate the skin in addition to its being non-greasy. When looking for the best stretch mark creams during pregnancy, you're sure to have found a good product when it contains squalene in it.
