Srtivectin SD was formulated for stretch marks, but it was not long before women started experimenting with the cream and their crows feet, and the results were supposedly as good as Botox. There are several great ingredients in Strivectin SD that most definitely have the potential to fade lines and wrinkles. BUT, does it have enough power to fade stretch marks? Let’s look and see what the ingredients tell us.
Strivectin SD has many active ingredients that I will list below, but their main active ingredient is a proprietary ingredient called Pal-KTTKS, classified as an oligo-peptide. This particular ingredient is solely owned by Klein Becker, the company that makes Strivectin SD. Because the company has made all efforts to keep their proprietary formula, especially this particular one secret, finding any real specific information on it has been impossible. Below is what the company says about it:
“At the 2-month halfway point, the peptide solution worked nearly 1.5 times faster than retinol “in measured parameters,” and without the inflammation retinol often causes in sensitive skin”.
The remaining active ingredients are…
Urea: In small amounts urea has good water-binding and exfoliating properties for skin.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8: Is a peptide, however, it is renowned for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is actually commonly referred to as topical botox. While this particular peptide has proven effective at reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, I had trouble finding any conclusive results of it on its own treating stretch marks. Although in conjunction with the other peptides in this formula, I am quite sure it boosts its effects.
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3: Is yet another type of Peptide that has amazing potential to smooth and regenerate the surface layer of skin all while increasing skin elasticity, and tone.
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide: Is an extremely impressive ingredient! Palmitoyl Oligopeptide is a synthetic peptide, and we know that peptides are the building blocks, or foundation for the bonding of amino acids. And they are also extremely effective at repairing skin damage. Palmitoyl Oligopeptide is quickly becoming one of the most popular ingredients in anti aging skin care. The manufacturers of this particular synthetic peptide tell us that when applied to the skin it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
Retinyl Palmitate: Reduces wrinkles, pigment spots and the damage from UV rays.
Tocopheryl Acetate: The strongest form of Vitamin E. 40 times stronger and more effective at repairing skin damage.
Strivectin SD combines several different ingredients to alleviate all the problematic areas brought about by a stretch mark. Although, I have only listed a handful of ingredients in Strivectin SD, the ones I have listed are the primary active ingredients. The ingredients listed here, and the remaining ingredients in Strivectin SD, are without a doubt strong enough to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, as well as greatly reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Strivectin SD is one of the pricier products on the market; however the company is so sure of their product that they offer a money back guarantee. It is in this author’s opinion that from an ingredient stand point Strivectin SD is a potent and effective formula.
Out of all the stretch mark creams tested, the highest rated stretch mark creams is: Revitol.
