Frequently Asked Questions


Stretch Renew Stretch Mark Cream and Serum

How does Stretch Renew work?
Stretch Renew works by putting the elastic fibers, called elastin and collagen, back into the skin using a 2 step process of a cream and a serum. Through the amazing discovery of Emu Oil, we can now carry these proteins through the skin's layers where they can help repair damaged skin.

Other ingredients, such as rosehip and black willow bark, have also been added, creating a making the product even more effective. In addition, we have also removed the de-ionized water (using Aloe Vera Juice instead) and have enhanced the formula further by adding Vitamin E, Vitamin A, avocado oil, green tree oil and Vitamin B.

Is this a miracle product?
No. The "bad" news is that - there is no such thing as a "miracle" product. The "good" news is that Stretch Renew can help to reduce and repair stretch marks when used as directed.

You can expect to see an improvement in your stretch marks or scars in 60 to 120 days (or sooner). Our product is guaranteed to provide results and is backed up with a 120 day money back guarantee.

Does it work on all skin types?
Stretch Renew stretch mark treatment can be used successfully on all skin types and ages. The younger the skin, the more elastic the skin is, therefore the skin's response is usually quicker because it needs less elastin proteins to repair the skin.

Will it prevent stretch marks?
As the skin stretches, Stretch Renew will help thicken the skin and keep the skin more elastic. This in turn will help the skin become stronger and more elastic which will help it stretch more without damage.

Why does this stretch mark cream and serum work better than others?
Stretch Renew is not just a moisturizer, it is a skin repair cream. We use Emu Oil as a transport vehicle  to help put collagen and elastin (which help hold the skin together) back into the skin. Putting these important ingredients deep into the layers help repair the damaged skin.

How long before I can see results?
Using our stretch mark treatment twice daily, allow 60 to 120 days to see improvement. Although people with younger skin may see results much sooner.

Severely Damaged Skin: Depending on the severity and age of the marks, more time may be required to see substantial results. However, there should be some indication of overall improvement within 90 to 120 days even in regards to severely damaged skin. The longer it is used, the better the results.

General Guidelines for Improvement:
3 to 4 Weeks - for mild or minor marks
6 to 8 Weeks - for noticeable results for medium and darker marks
12 to 16 Weeks - for significant repair of severely damaged skin

My skin is very sensitive. Is this product hypoallergenic?
Our stretch mark product is all natural, is non-comodogenic (meaning it won't clog pores), non-irritating and bacteriostatic (does not promote bacterial growth). Both the cream and the serum are very effective but gentle.

How often do I use it?

For best results, we recommend that Stretch Renew be applied twice daily: morning and evening on clean, exfoliated skin.

How much do I use?
Our stretch mark product is highly concentrated so a small amount goes a long way. More is not necessarily better. The brochure included with each order will explain specifically the amount to use.

Why is this stretch mark product more expensive than others?
Stretch Renew is not just a moisturizer, it also repairs skin.

Any formula is only as good as the ingredients it contains, the percentage of each key ingredient it contains and the way in which the ingredients are delicately and precisely combined together.

Our stretch mark product isn't diluted with unnecessary fillers or water making it highly concentrated. In fact, there's no water added to our formula at all -- so a little goes a long way. We use pure Aloe Vera instead of water. You use about half the amount as you would with some other creams on the market.

Some of our Key Ingredients Include: Emu Oil, Aloe Vera Juice, Vitamin E, Avocado Oil, Rosehip, Black Willow Bark, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B.

See below for our full list of ingredients contained in both the Stretch Renew cream and serum.

What Are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are tiny tears in the dermis that occur when the skin is stretched excessively. They can vary in color from a light pink to a dark purple. This tearing process breaks down elastin and collagen fibers which causes scarring. Over a very long period of time, usually years, stretch marks can fade in color, but the scars remain.

Our Stretch Renew product penetrates through the epidermis (the top skin layer) down into the dermis (the second layer) where the ingredients go to work repairing the damaged area from the inside - - - out.

What Causes Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are caused when the skin is stretched to the point of breaking down, similar to elastic losing it's elasticity. Losing collagen and elastin in the skin causes stretch marks, loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles. When there is a breakdown or loss of elastin and collagen fibers or excessive stretching in the skin, the mark actually shows through to the epidermis (top layer of skin).

There are several different factors that contribute to the formation of stretch marks.

  • Heredity - Some skin is genetically prone to stretch marks
  • Skin Type - Dryer Skin has less elasticity than Oily Skin
  • Weight - rapid gain or loss
  • Pregnancy - the weight gain associated with pregnancy
  • Bodybuilding or strenuous exercise

Although some people are more susceptible to stretch marks, anyone can get them including men. In addition, the non-occurrence of stretch marks during one pregnancy does not necessarily mean stretch marks will not occur in another.

General Directions:

For Stretch Marks:  A two step process: First Step: Cleanse and apply by massaging cream on affected areas. Second Step: follow immediately  with serum, massaging in over the top of the cream.  Once  morning and once in the evening until desired results are achieved.    

For Burns and Scars:  A two step process: First Step: Cleanse and apply by massaging cream on affected areas. Second Step: follow immediately  with serum, massaging in over the top of the cream.  Once  morning and once in the evening until desired results are achieved.    

About the Stretch Renew Cream and Serum:

Stretch Renew is very effective in helping to repair the skin which is why it is guaranteed to work. 

Of course, this is
not some "miracle cream or serum" that will completely remove old marks after just two weeks nor is it merely a "skin - softening" cream and serum. It does actually penetrate to the deepest part of the skin to help stimulate new growth and repair from the inside - out.

The cream
and serum is very, concentrated so only a small amount is needed per application.  Typically, the amount the size of a raisin will cover an area about the size of a woman’s hand. 

1 ounce jar of Serum and the 2 ounce jar of the Cream lasts approximately 60 days depending on the areas covered.

The more areas treated at one time - the less time each jar will last of course.  We recommend that you select a small area that bothers you the most and apply the cream for 60 to 120 days to that one specific area. That way, the cream will last a little longer and you will have “treated skin” versus “untreated skin” to compare. Then after you see that it has started working, you could apply the cream to the remaining marks.

Severely Damaged Skin: Depending on the severity and age of the marks, more time may be required to see substantial results. However, there should be some indication of overall improvement within 90 to 120 days even in regards to severely damaged skin. The longer the cream is used, the better the results. Some marks are so bad and old that they can never be fully and completely repaired but certainly reduced enough over an appropriate time frame that most customers have been truly pleased with the outcome.


Key Ingredients

Stretch Renew contains very high amounts of Emu Oil, Aloe Vera Juice, Rose distillate, Avocado Oil and Jojoba Oil - which make up the first five ingredients in our formula. These five ingredients along with other selected "key" ingredients listed below are perfectly balanced in our product to help treat old stretch marks and help prevent new ones from forming.

Why Is Our Formula Different?
Simply put... it's the key ingredients and how much of these ingredients our product actually contains along with our success record and guarantee.

By law, products must list their ingredients from the "first" being the most in concentration to the "last" being the least.

If you compare our ingredients to any other product on the market, you will see that ours is quite different. Most others contain water as their very first ingredient, which means water is their main ingredient.

No Water Added!
Our formula isn't diluted with water (or any other fillers) making it highly concentrated. In fact, there's no water added to our formula at all -- so a little goes a long way. We use pure Aloe Vera instead of water. You use about half the amount as you would with some other products on the market.

Our cream and serum are created using all natural, high-quality, pharmaceutical grade ingredients designed to address skin repair problems from the inside - out. Yet, they are very gentle and highly concentrated helping to produce incredible results safely and quickly.
