Aside from keeping stretch marks at bay by keeping skin supple and moisturized, vitamin E can also help prepare you for vaginal birth and reduce the chances of an episiotomy. Starting around 34 weeks, perineal massages can help stretch the skin between your vagina and anus, and greatly reduce the chance of tearing during delivery. Experts recommend choosing a toxin-free massage oil with natural vitamin E, like this one, to help increase the skin's elasticity in this delicate region.
All of our products are natural and unscented so that your senses won’t be offended during pregnancy! We recommend adding in some personal fragrance or an essential oil for extra oomph (just add 2-3 drops). Just shake well before using to mix with oil accordingly.

ONLY THE BEST
More than soothing dry skin, almond oil can improve complexion and skin tone. It’s highly emollient, which means it helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss. Its natural concentration of vitamin E can also help to heal sun damage, reduce the appearance of stretch marks and fade scars. Almond oil soaks in quickly and is a powerful moisturizer, so it can be used on the face or body. You can apply it straight, or mix it with essential oils to get its benefits. Almond oil has incredible softening properties, so when it is applied to areas where stretch marks typically occur on your body, it works to soften that skin and allow for it to stretch without exacerbating the marks.
Pure shea oil contains vitamins A, E, and F. It has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and evens your skin tone. It can be used to moisturize every member of the family's skin including babies. It will leave your skin with a healthy glow with all-day hydration. It is occlusive. This means it blocks water loss from the outer layer of your skin. It has the most significant effect when applied to moist or damp skin. It is also an emollient. These are long-chain saturated fatty acids (stearic, linoleic, oleic fatty acids) which are commonly used in cosmetic formulations or topical applications. When incorporated into moisturizers, it helps to soften the skin through the filling of spaces between the skin cells. Moreover, it can act as a barrier to water loss when applied to the skin. The vitamin E component in Shea oil will fade skin scars, acne scarring, and stretch marks gradually over time and will even your skin tone. This will give you a smooth monotone complexion.
One of the qualities that make avocado oil stand out from the other oils is the level of oleic acid it contains. Oleic acid is a fatty acid that is known for its enhancement of skin permeability. Oleic acid is what helps our skin open up the gates to welcome in the nutrients and while most oils hover around 15% oleic acid composition, avocado is comprised of a whopping 63% of the fatty acid!
Because of the high levels of oleic acid, avocado oil is a well - known ‘carrier oil’. This means that you can combine avocado oil with other essential oils so that the nutrients from those oils can be delivered to the skin and be absorbed more effectively.
This pregnancy super oil helps stimulate metabolic changes in the skin. It helps accelerate cell growth and keeps the skin young looking, it boosts levels of collagen and can naturally aid cell regeneration. It is also great for helping repair the skin after sun damage and for easing the signs of premature ageing including stretch marks. Plus it’s a great natural treatment for existing scars. Expecting moms who need some extra skin support during pregnancy have found that Rosehip Oil reduces the appearance of hyper-pigmentation stretch marks and eases skin dryness and sensitivity.
Vitamin E Oil
Used commonly in sunscreens and sunburn relievers, vitamin E is proven to ease dryness and bolster skin’s UV defense. It is also said to even skin tone and soften skin. Using vitamin E will add moisture and elasticity to your skin and help you prevent or diminish stretch marks. Adding it to your skincare regimen can also help to fight pregnancy-related acne and eczema.
Be aware that vitamin E comes in natural and synthetic forms. Both natural and synthetic vitamin E may be derived from natural sources, but one is its complete, true form, while the other has been produced in a lab. Natural vitamin E contains the full range of tocopherols, which are antioxidants, but synthetic vitamin E offers only one. We strongly recommend a natural vitamin E, like the one found in our Nourish Body Oil, over synthetic for use in pregnancy.
