How does Barmon Stretch Mark Cream work?
Stretch marks are tears in the collagen beneath the top layer of skin. Our cream is formulated to deliver vitamin E down into the torn tissue helping the collagen to heal thus diminishing the appearance of the marks, and in most cases making them disappear altogether. Vitamin E or cocoa butter alone will not work due to the size of their molecule, they are just too big to penetrate the skin. We use lanolin, which has a very small molecule, to deliver the ingredients past the top layer of skin into the torn tissue.
Does the cream really work?
When Barmon Inc. first started selling our stretch mark cream 25 years ago, the United States Postal Service investigated the company for postal fraud, due to the nature of our claim and the belief that nothing could get rid of stretch marks. After a very brief hearing, it was determined that Barmon's Stretch Mark Cream does really work -- and we were allowed to continue selling our product. Twenty-five years later, we are still going strong. We couldn't have lasted this long unless we were doing something right. Hundreds of unsolicited letters prove that our cream really works!
How long does it take for the cream to work?
The healing process for each individual's skin is different, so there is no way to provide a specific time frame regarding the length of time that it will take for you to see results. However, we have generally found that people begin to see results after about 3 weeks of use. The level of results differs from person to person, depending on the severity of your stretch marks and your personal health habits. For instance, the effectiveness of our cream can be influenced if you smoke, drink alcohol or sunbathe. These factors are very harmful to your skin and can slow down the healing process.
Once my stretch marks are gone, will they come back?
People always wonder if they need to use the cream forever once the stretch marks are gone. The stretch mark cream helps the skin to heal, so once the stretch marks are gone, they are gone forever. However, if you have another child, new stretch marks may form.
Is Barmon's Stretch Mark Cream safe for nursing mothers?
Absolutely! We designed the cream so that mothers can use the cream on their breasts while nursing. Barmon's Stretch Mark Cream is an all natural product and will not harm your child.
Will the cream help to prevent stretch marks if I use it before I have my baby?
Yes. If you use Barmon's Stretch Mark Cream before and during your pregnancy, you will greatly reduce the chance of getting stretch marks
Can the stretch mark cream be used by men?
Absolutely! Over the years we have had many male customers, especially body builders and weight lifters. Men experience the same results as women.
Does it work on African American or Hispanic skin?
Yes, it works for all skin types. Over the years, we've been asked this question many times. Our response has always been that skin is skin and stretch marks don't seem to differ from one skin type to another.
