Traditionally, cocoa butter has been used for stretch mark treatments. Cocoa butter is not only cheap but also very effective in treating the stretch marks. Owing to its high efficiency in treating the stretch marks, it is universally used. Moreover, cocoa butter being a natural ingredient has no side effects at all. Being natural makes it all the more popular. The main ingredient is the butter agent which has maximum absorbing capacity with in the cells and tissues.

All these along with the stretch marks make the skin very rough and unappealing. There are various grades of cocoa butter. Many companies also manufacture this product. But, according to my view, it is better to purchase them from a renowned company only. The price difference will not be much but when you buy from a renowned company, the ingredient quality can be fine and guaranteed. In fact, a better company is one that can give a money back guarantee for some extended period.
Cocoa butter acts by regenerating the cells that has been damaged by serious extensions. Though by nature skin has the innate capacity to extend to some extent, undue extension due to pregnancy or over weight can damage the skin and cause to breakage. This leads to the formation of scars over the skin. Cocoa butter acts by penetrating deeply into the tissues, technically speaking, it penetrates in to the dermal layer of the skin which is the second layer to epidermis. Epidermis is the outer skin layer which can be seen visually. Now the cocoa butter applied, penetrates from the epidermis in to the dermis where the actual damage to the skin has occurred. It starts to repair the damaged tissues from dermis to the epidermis. Thus after some period of application, good results can be seen visually.
Fortunately, the discolouration that occurs due to the formation of the stretch marks is also markedly reduced by the application of cocoa butter. These can be the main reasons for using cocoa butter as a universal anti stretch mark product.

In addition to cocoa butter which is famous for treating the stretch marks, another effective products acts along to help to get rid of the stretch marks is Emu oil. Emu oil can be used to treat stretches in addition to other oils like the olive oil and coconut oil. These oils are rich in 3 omega and 6 omega fatty acids which are required for a healthy skin. These are the building blocks of the epidermal and the dermal layer. When these fatty acids also called as the essential fatty acids are absorbed by the skin tissues a visible results can be seen with few weeks after the application.
