Statistical information varies, but some sources claim that the percentage of women who develop stretch marks during their pregnancy is as high as 90%. Ninety percent?! That's nine out of ten women!
Let's face it - most people wouldn't disagree that stretch marks are unattractive. Many mothers claim that they're indifferent about the fact that they already have them, or even proudly proclaim that they've earned them as a "badge of honor." While we have a great deal of respect for their positive outlook, we know it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to find a woman who, if given the choice, would choose to have her stomach look as if it had been attacked by a wild animal. But now, with Joli Mere, you do have a choice.
Forget about the lotions, oils, creams, and other gimmicky topical products. They simply don't work, and that's because they're not able to penetrate deeply enough - into the dermal layer of your skin. The dermal layer is the layer that regulates elasticity. It's just below the epidermis, which is the top layer of your skin. When the dermal layer tears, stretch marks occur. When the dermal layer is stretched too tautly, it breaks down (essentially, it scars), and the resulting stretch marks are initially red or purple in color. While the redness will go away over time, the stretch marks will always remain. They look just like scars (they are scars), and there's no way to remove them.
We have developed Joli Mere as a formula to prevent stretch marks from the inside! Our PROVEN formula of ingredients targets the dermal layer of your skin, and it nourishes and supports the dermis by supplying it with collagen, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and a host of other supplements that will give your skin the best possible defense strategy in the fight against stretch marks. Of course, all of our supplements are safe for ingestion during pregnancy, and FDA-approved.
As previously mentioned, stretch marks are essentially tears in the dermis, which is the middle layer of the skin. The dermis becomes more susceptible to tearing when there is an insuffiency of collagen and elastin in the skin, and when an individual's skin is stretched due to pregnancy, growth spurts, muscle growth, or weight gain, stretch marks then occur. Joli Mere aims to guard against stretch marks by 1) supplementing the skin with enough collagen and elastin, 2) promoting the skin's production of new collagen and elastin, 3) hydrating the skin, and 4) protecting the body's existing collagen and elastin reserves, and preventing them from breaking down.
Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful experiences that a woman can have during her lifetime. It's also a time during women's lives when they experience a great deal of anxiety about what their body will look like after their baby is born. We at Joli Mere believe that all mothers are entitled to be as beautiful on the outside as they feel on the inside, and we want to help ensure that you come out of your pregnancy as unscathed as possible!
"Joli Mere" means "cute mother" in French!
