Many pregnant women find themselves developing stretch marks near the end of their pregnancy. Along with the physical stretching of their skin, many hormonal factors likely play a role in the creation of stretch marks. One of the most ways of treating these discolored grooves is the use of cocoa butter. There are other, less comfortable treatments that offer results as well. They are, however, much more expensive in comparison.These treatments include but are not limited to: Laser therapy, Tretinoin creams, and Microdermabrasion. Think it best to know more about cocoa butter treatments before trying one of these invasive procedures?
So, the question is, Will Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Tummy Butter smooth and remove the discolored lines and grooves on your stomach, thighs, arms, and chest?

The first negative note we discovered about this product was the fact that it does not offer any customer testimonials on its main website. Any and all information to be gathered from real users of this product could only be found review sites, and places like Amazon. Also, there is no money back guarantee protecting its customer. If you see no results or otherwise experience negative side effects, you're simply out of pocket. Lastly, but certainly not least, this product has had no scientific or clinical studies performed on it.

Regarding our experience with Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion, we couldn't help but feel like this product was trying to reproduce everything we've seen before. And while we're confident some people might see results, there is a lot to be weary of when considering a purchase of this product. While the price is nice at $6.99 for a 4.4oz container, we never the less did not like the fact that there was no money back guarantee should we not see results. One of the few saving graces of Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion is that its happy to share its ingredients front and center on its main website. However, showcasing ingredients that have not been clinically or scientifically tested and proven to reduce the appearance of stretch marks is very detrimental, and ultimately costs Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion a recommendation. Save your money for something proven to work for the same price.
