Does Virgin Coconut Oil can help reduce Stretch Marks?

Has anyone tried using virgin coconut oil instead of using cocoa butter to prevent stretch marks? Just curious. Does it really helps in reducing those red itchy marks? Thanks

I have used coconut oil that my mom has made from scratch & yes it really works! I live on an island so it is really easy for us to access the "virgin coconut oil". I used to have HUGE stretch marks on my stomach but after applying the coconut oil every night befor I lie in bed, they have reduced dramatically. I won't lie and say that it will completely remove them, because I am not at that stage yet. But I can truthfully say that it has shrunk my stretch marks! They are no longer huge, they are really thin that you can barely notice them anymore.

Thanks all for the response. Sorry I've been busy these past few days. Anyway, Im using cocoa lotion plus virgin coconut oil now... i'm still observing the effects. I noticed that the redness and itchiness are gone. I just hope in time (let's say few weeks) these marks would shrunk or go away for good. Thanks all. I'll try to update again =P Godbless

Yes Virgin Coconut oil can help reduce Stretch Marks. I had tested it on my own marks and they worked. It gives a lot of benefits aside from this. It can help cure skin diseases and It gives a very good effect on the hair. Its definitely the best oil Ive ever tried.

Well, I reguarally used baby oil on my body to prevent stetch marks, so I can believe that any oil will work. The best oil I have found to work is Vitamin E oil. Although it is very exspensive for just a small bottle, it really works. It only works if you are trying to prevent strech marks. It will not do anything for any strech marks you may have already though. I am not sure on anything that can get rid of strech marks if you already have them.

Virgin cocunut oil is great for the skin, not only for preventing stretch marks but also for the general well being of the skin also.. It is a great moisturiser, and I like its aroma also.. Yes, there is another great counterpart - olive oil.. Both these things can do wonders to your skin.

Hi there, I think any kind of oil helps with stretch marks and scars, evidence shows that "Bio Oil" really helps with scars and stretch marks...

I never heard of it but I will have to try it. I'm up for anything to reduce the stretch marks.
