Apothederm announced their nomination today for best stretch mark cream in the 2011 SheKnows Parenting Awards. According to SheKnows, the coveted award recognizes outstanding products in the parenting and pregnancy industry based on functionality, quality and convenience. Winners will be announced October 25, 2011, on SheKnows.com.
Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream provides an effective, clinical proven solution for weakened tissue and stressed skin due to growth spurts, rapid weight gain and post-pregnancy stretching. Inspired by nature and powered by science, the cream optimally blends four natural emollients: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and highly moisturizing meadowfoam seed oil for a silky, fast-absorbing formulation. These emollients are blended with the power-packed action of their exclusive, patented heptapeptide-7 along with resveratrol, licorice extract, brightening amino acids, algae extract and other advanced ingredients that work to fade the appearance of stretch marks, nourish skin, even skin tone, improve skin texture and smoothness and protect skin to help prevent future stretch marks.
