To those who have told me that cocoa butter helps removes stretch marks: How long will it take and what brand?

I've been told by several different people that putting cocoa butter or lotion on you stretch marks helps to make the appearance less noticable or barely visible. I've been putting generous amounts of this stuff on for several months and barely any results! Am I using the right brand and how long does it take for it to show results?

  1. nothing gets rid of stretch marks. cocoa butter supposedly helps PREVENT them but once you have them you can’t get rid of them. they’re caused by a decrease in elasticity of the skin. basically, they’re scars. they will fade over time, but they won’t ever go away. losing weight will help conceal them. there are (costly) laser treatments that can help diminish the appearance as well. avon makes a stretch mark smoother that i thought worked very well for mine. i bought 2 tubes and didn’t need the 2nd.
