Extra Virgin Raw Coconut Oil is VERY good for stretch marks. I just started using it about two weeks ago and t's the best topical I've ever tried for my stretch marks. I also would recommend taking at least one or two tablespoons daily for even better results. Also, go out and purchase the roughest exfoliating tool that you can find and just go to town on the stretch marks until they are REALLY red and painful because in my experiance you need to do more than just apply oil. You need to assist your body by helping to physically remove the marks. Remember: no pain, no gain. And patience is key. The best tip I can give is to just get into a routine and don't stare at your marks everyday to see improvement because the change is too gradual to see and it will get you down. I had really deep stretch marks, they were horrible, but they are drastically improved. It's unreal how much better they look! I won't lie though, they aren't 100% gone but they are getting to that goal. You just have to keep at it. It has taken me over a year so far. I am not stopping until they're gone. This is war! :)

I'm so sorry for not replying sooner, I was in the middle of the toughest semester ever. Anyway, I noticed improvements in the first three days. Then I had such high expectations for the treatment that I stopped noticing that it was actually working because I thought that all of the marks should be gone in two weeks. However, by the end of the first month, I realised that some had been completely removed and my faith was renewed. I continued to apply it only at night (it can be a little uncomfortable to sleep in though), and in about three months, maybe before, they were all gone. Hope I'm not too late with my response.

You CAN'T go wrong with coconut oil. It just makes the stretch marks vanish. And I mean any mark!! I'm really psyched about this. I still can't believe that I have perfect skin. Wear it in the morning when you go for a walk or run and it will work together with the sun to give you a weird (in a good way) caramel color. Especially if you're black. I live on an island so we're always in bikini season and I always feel comfortable baring my tushy on the sand. Use it and you won't regret it. Sorry if I came over as over-excited. That's how good it is.

I read this about 2 months ago and started using it on my stretch marks which are 9 years old from having my son, on my belly and they are white... I saw a remarkable difference... I rub in cold pressed coconut oil once or twice a day, always after I shower... I heard it can take months but I see a major difference so I am keeping with it... I am also taking the coconut oil internally for other things and also using it on my face, my crows feet are GONE... I am 33

If you have stretch marks, do not fear, you can get rid of them! I gained a lot of weight this year, and I have been using Mederma for months. I did see some improvement, but I couldn't see Mederma ultimately erasing all of my stretch marks. I have been using raw, hard-pressed coconut oil on my skin daily for two weeks now and my newest stretch marks are already gone. My slightly older stretch marks are rapidly improving.

Raw, hard-pressed coconut oil is anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and can be used for makeup removal or for cooking. This stuff is amazing!!! It even aids in anti-aging as it is loaded with antioxidants. It needs to be the raw, hard-pressed oil though. I found some at rms beauty online ($18/bottle) but I'm sure it can be found for cheaper. It will feel really oily at first, but as your skin gets used to it, it will soak into your skin really quickly. You will not be disappointed!

I was considered on the worst end of the scale when it came to measuring my stretchmarks. they were horrible, but i have found that rubbin extra virgin coconut oil on them once a day (you dont even have to be religous about it) cures them almost 100 per cent in nine months, i would recommend this to anyone and everyone.
