The element heptapeptide-7 works to increase the body’s healing system while enhancing collagen production, visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The ingredient shea butter helps to minimize dehydration while ensuring a healthy, natural moisture balance of the skin. Cocoa butter and olive oil are softening agents. Pichia or resveratrol ferment extract and glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract work to decrease irritation and discoloration. This formula, however, lacks medical-grade silicone that offers a protective layer for increased moisture retention.

Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream Review – The Bottom Line
This stretch mark product seems useful. It is backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee which reduces risk for the consumer. Dosage instructions are clear, giving the buyer a better chance of gaining optimal results. However, there are certain concerns about this product. First, the quantities of the ingredients are not declared by the manufacturer of this product. Second, no package deals with discounts are offered, which would have made this pricey product more affordable, especially in the long term. Third, even though the formula seems impressive, it lacks certain key ingredients such as medical-grade silicone. This ingredient was found in clinical studies to be effective at treating stretch marks.
