Weleda Pregnancy Body Oil – Banish Those Stretch Marks

I am delighted to tell you that Ulula now stocks the fantastic Weleda Pregnancy Body Oil. The oil is part of Weleda’s new pregnancy care range which has been developed in conjunction with doctors and midwives to provide comfort and skin care for mums before, during and after pregnancy. The specially formulated pregnancy body oil helps prevent and treat stretch marks during pregnancy and has recently been awarded the  ‘Must Have Belly Balm’ award by TIPS. Read the TIPS review below.

The pregnancy oil has a base of sweet almond oil, which gently works to deliver intensely moisturizing essential fatty acids that keep your skin supple and protected from drying. Because pregnancy is a big job for your muscles and skin, the organic arnica flower extract helps ease tightness and provides a layer of comforting warmth when you indulge yourself with a soothing massage using the oil. Nourishing wheat germ oil conditions and refines your skin’s texture and delivers a high quantity of vitamins A, D and E.

In summary then, regular use of the Weleda Pregnancy Body Oil visibly helps to correct the appearance of stretch marks on your pregnant belly; your thighs, bottom and breasts; and helps prevent the appearance of new ones.

Using Weleda Pregnancy Body Oil – Banish Stretch Marks

Weleda Pregnancy Body Oil can be applied two to three times daily – from the beginning of pregnancy up to three months after birth – with light, circular massage movements over the stomach, thighs, bottom and breasts.

A kneading massage is not recommended. If you are unsure of the best way to apply body oils, please consult with your midwife, nurse or doctor. Please note that oils containing Arnica should not be used on broken skin as they may cause irritation.
