Stretch marks are the unsightly result of skin that has changed in size too quickly, such as during pregnancy, a growth spurt, weight loss or body building. The best time to treat stretch marks is when they first begin to appear. If you anticipate stretch marks, start treating your skin immediately to prevent them altogether, and encourage your growing teenagers to use this stretch mark cream daily. This cream will also help reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks.

Things You'll Need

Melt the cocoa butter in double boiler. Remove from heat.

Use the hand mixer to combine the melted cocoa butter with the almond oil. When the mixture turns a creamy color, add Vitamin E oil and essential oils.

Continue mixing on high speed until the cream takes on a slightly thick consistency. Pour the cream into the glass jar.


  • Warm up the cream slightly before you apply it to help increase blood circulation and relaxation.
    Lavender and chamomile are considered relaxing scents in aromatherapy, so use the cream before bed.
    Omit essential oils if you do not care for scented cream.
