I’ve been given the opportunity to try out a brand new skin care line and product. The line is named Apothederm and the product is a stretch mark cream. This is my first post letting you know I just used it for the first time – to tell you about the company and the product – and I will follow-up weekly with results of my usage.
I must say for first of all that the tube is significant in size. Most high-end products of this kind are tiny little tubes that you would demolish in a very short amount of time. 5.7oz tube here.
Here is some information from the website.

Here’s Why It’s So Effective
Our Stretch Mark Cream optimally blends four natural emollients: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and highly moisturizing meadowfoam seed oil for a silky, fast-absorbing formulation. Adding power-packed action are patented heptapeptide-7, resveratrol, licorice extract, brightening amino acids, algae extract, sodium hyaluronate and other advanced ingredients that work to fade the appearance of stretch marks and nourish the skin.
Heptapeptide-7 is a bioactive SmartPeptide™ that boosts collagen and helps support tissue and consists of seven naturally occurring amino acids that are commonly found in the skin. This peptide sequence is modeled on natural sequences found as part of the body’s own defend and repair system. The use of Heptapeptide-7 on the skin is similar to the body’s own short bioactive peptides present in the skin and in the same manner, Heptapeptide-7 performs its function and then is broken down into amino acids which are naturally present throughout the body.
