Pregnacare Cream - 100ml
To gently protect stretching skin. With soothing & protecting botanical extracts
To gently protect stretching skin
Pregnacare® Cream is a gentle massage cream, specially formulated to care for stretching skin during pregnancy.
Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body where the skin has been stretched. They occur when the lower layer of the skin containing collagen and elastin, which give our skin its elasticity, becomes damaged by a rapid weight loss or weight gain, such as in pregnancy. The purple appearance of the stretch mark on the skin is caused by the small blood vessels beneath the surface, which become more visible with stretching.
Unique caring formula
Pregnacare® Cream's unique formula contains vitamins C and E and botanical extracts such as natural extract of Calendula and Evening Primrose Oil, which together gently protect, nourish, moisturise and heal stretching skin.
Rich source of vitamins E & C
Pregnacare® Cream is a rich source of vitamins E and C. Several studies have shown that these accelerate the healing of the skin.
Safe and effective during and after pregnancy
Pregnacare® Cream is safe and effective during the months of pregnancy and may be continued to be applied after giving birth, to help the contracting skin to stay supple.
In UK trials with pregnant women, 73% of the women reported that their skin was suppler after just two weeks of applying Pregnacare® Cream.

Why has Pregnacare® Cream been developed?
During pregnancy a woman's skin stretches rapidly to accommodate her growing baby, increasing the chance of developing stretch marks, which often first appear as reddish-purple marks on areas such as the stomach, hips and breasts. Pregnacare® Cream has been specifically developed to gently protect stretching skin by providing essential ingredients to nourish, moisturise and heal.
When is Pregnacare® Cream recommended?
Pregnacare® Cream is recommended when the skin starts to stretch during the first trimester. This is because the sooner potential stretch marks are cared for - when they are red or reddish purple - the more likely you are to lessen their appearance. Once they begin to smooth and fade they become less obvious and far more difficult to treat successfully.
As the skin contracts after pregnancy it can also lose its suppleness, which is why Pregnacare® Cream should be continued to be applied after giving birth, to help contracting skin stay supple.
Can Pregnacare® Cream be used with medicines simultaneously?
As a general rule there is no reason why Pregnacare® Cream may be used along-side medications. Pregnacare® Cream is free from any drugs or hormones. For more specific advice, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.
How and when should Pregnacare® Cream be used?
Pregnacare® Cream should be gently massaged into the stomach, waist, thighs and breasts, avoiding the nipple area (this is also important as a means to prevent the cream coming into contact with your baby if you use the cream during breast feeding). Pregnacare® Cream can be used daily, during and after pregnancy.
Are there any undesired effects whist using Pregnacare® Cream?
Pregnacare® Cream has no known side effects when used as directed. Do not apply on broken skin or the nipple area. Store in a dry place below 25°C.
What are the active ingredients?
Pregnacare® Cream contains the following active ingredients: Natural plant extract of Calendula, Evening Primrose oil, Aloe Vera extract, Allantoin, Vitamin C, natural Vitamin E, Pantothenic acid as D-Panthenol, Magnesium Sulphate, Sodium Chloride, Zinc Oxide and Menthol.

How long does it take to experience any benefit?
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect mothers-to-be to experience suppler skin after just two weeks. In UK trials, 76% of pregnant women who used Pregnacare® Cream on a daily basis said they noticed suppler skin in two weeks.
Is Pregnacare® Cream recommended with any other Vitabiotics product(s) during pregnancy?
