With so many stretch mark creams on the market choosing one product can leave you confused and frustrated. The most important thing to consider when you are looking to try a new product, especially when you are looking to invest in a some what controversial product like a stretch mark cream, are the ingredients! There are so many stretch mark creams on the market, some that work, and some that are basically lotion in a dressed up bottle. Investigating the ingredients can leave you with a better understanding of the product and how it is suppose to work.
In this review we will go over some of the ingredients of a popular stretch mark cream called Trilastin. What sets Trilastin apart from many other types of stretch mark creams is the fact that they combine natural herbal healers such as beeswax and licorice root extract, with traditional lab created ingredients. This mixture of ingredients takes the best of both worlds and combines them in an effort to reduce your stretch marks.
While going over all the ingredients in Trilastin is neither necessary, nor possible as there are 55 ingredients and the company is quite hush-hush about the specifics of their guaranteed formula, we will discuss the basics and their actions on the skin.
Trilastin’s main focus is on the production… or explosion of three essential skin components, collagen and elastin, and skin regeneration. Other stretch mark creams such as Revitol touch on increasing the production of collagen and elastin, and primarily focus on regenerating the surface layer of skin. Trilastin’s formula contains enough ingredients to focus on both, as they are equally important factors of stretch mark removal. However, this is not to say that Revitol doesn’t work it is simply a more basic formula designed to slightly fade the stretch mark, while Trilastin is entirely more complex and cutting edge.
What truly sets Trilastin apart from other products are three key ingredients:
2. Hydrolyed Collagen
3. Hydrolyzed Elastin
Trilastin, unlike other common products, actually contains the essential proteins collagen and elastin, as well as the vitamins and minerals need to promote the body to make its own. Another essential protein contained in the Trilastin formula is:
4. Hydrolyzed Soy Protein.
This is a complete protein, and when used in skin care products soy protein increases the elasticity of the skin, promotes hydration, and smoothes out lines and wrinkles. This can help to tighten the lose skin around the mark. While the Collagen and elastin work to repair the damaged skin, leaving the stretch mark almost un-noticeable.
Now, Trilastin also contains many ingredients to moisturize the skin and allow the skin to become more acceptable to changes such as stretching. This is because, not only does Trilastin claim to make your stretch mark vanish, but it also makes claims to prevent the stretch mark from ever occurring. While I agree that Trilastin has an amazing formula that is obviously going to be more effective than a lotion filled with basic vitamins. I do have to say that you can find an effective product to help prevent stretch marks at a much cheaper price. I say this for one simple reason, and that reason is that sometimes no matter what you do or how much you spend, stretch marks are going to occur, and while prevention is key, there are very effective moisturizers out there to help prevent stretch marks at a much cheaper price.
As far as reducing the appearance of the stretch mark, Trilastin has an extremely effective formula full of the skin essentials needed to reduce the appearance/ heal the damage left after the mark has occurred. The presence of the actual proteins collagen and elastin, and soy protein are the ingredients that have brought me to the conclusion that this stretch mark cream should in fact heal the skin and diminish the appearance of your stretch mark.
Out of all the stretch mark creams tested, the highest rated stretch mark creams is: Revitol.
