take pride in their appearance have long sought to prevent and remove
stretch marks on their stomach, breasts, thighs, hips, and many other
parts of their body. Now, with Joli Mere, you CAN help to prevent stretch
marks with our superiorly-developed formulation of vitamin supplements.
Not only is our formulation extremely effective, but it's the only one
of its kind.
It is estimated that under normal conditions, as many as 90% of women
will develop stretch marks during their pregnancy. However, in a double-blind
research study, our results were extremely promising. 158 pregnant women
from the ages of 22-40 participated in the study. The median age was 33.
The women were all in their first trimester of pregnancy, and they came
from varied socioeconomic levels and ethnic backgrounds. Half of the women
were given Joli Mere vitamin supplements every day, while the other half
were given a placebo (which included "standard" prenatal vitamin
ingredients, but included none of the supplements that promote the health
of the skin). When the two test groups were compared after they had given
birth to their babies (unfortunately, nine of the women were unable to
carry their pregnancies to full term), the results were nothing short
of astounding - only 22% of the mothers who had taken Joli Mere supplements
ended up getting stretch marks! Comparatively, the placebo group had an
83% incidence of stretch marks! The results speak for themselves.
Joli Mere work? Well, let's first take a look at what actually causes
stretch marks, as well as what can prevent them.
is made up of three layers: the epidermis (outer layer), the dermis (middle
layer) and the sub-cutaneous layer (inner layer). Stretch marks are essentially
scars that appear in the dermis due to the rupture of collagen fibers.
When the dermis is stretched beyond its limit, the skin becomes less elastic,
and small connective fibers in the dermis are torn. These tears then extend
to the epidermis, and the result is that the stretch marks are then clearly
two components of stretch mark formation. The first component is an insuffiency
of collagen and elastin in the skin. This insuffiency is usually caused
by hormonal changes. The second component is the stretching of skin, which
occurs with pregnancy, weight gain, muscle growth, etc. When these two
components occur in unison, the skin's lack of collagen and elastin causes
the dermis to tear. So, when the skin is stretched to its limit, dermal
tissue fibers break down, and stretch marks occur.
the key is to address these two components in a proactive way. While not
much can be done about the stretching of skin due to pregnancy, the stretching
can be minimized by regulating the abount of weight that a woman gains
during her pregnancy. The larger she gets, the more her skin will stretch.
The second component, however, which is the skin's lack of collagen and
elastin, can indeed be addressed, and it is addressed by Joli Mere.
and elastin are proteins found in the skin and other tissues of the body.
Elastin helps keep the skin firm and tight but flexible, allowing it to
snap back into place when it is pulled. Collagen is a fibrous protein
that supports many body tissues such as skin, tendons, and cartilage.
and elastin work hand-in-hand to support the body's tissues - collagen
gives body tissues firmness and strength, while elastin gives the body
tissues flexibility. In order to produce collagen and elastin, your body
requires amino acids.
tends to have more elasticity when the body is well hydrated, so it's
very important to nourish your skin's elastin with supplements that promote
and maintain your skin's moisture and hydration. Lipids promote hydration.
They are oily components within the skin, and they're critical to the
appearance of healthy skin.
are nutrients and enzymes that help to protect and repair the body's breakdown
of collagen and elastin. Free radicals are the culprits that attack collagen
and elastin, causing aging and tissue damage. Antioxidants travel throughout
the body in search of free radicals, attacking them and preventing them
from causing any destruction or imbalance to collagen and elastin. Therefore,
it's clearly very important to introduce antioxidants into your body.
offers an innovative four-fold approach in the fight against stretch marks.
It's what makes our product so unique, and so effective. It's all very
clear: in order to give your skin the best defense against stretch marks,
it's necessary to:
Supply the skin with collagen and elastin
2) Supply the skin with supplements that promote the skin's own production
of collagen and elastin, such as amino acids
3) Supply the skin with supplements that maintain the skin's moisture
4) Defend the skin by supplying it with antioxidants so that free radicals
can be fought off.

a complete list of our ingredients and their functions. The ingredients
include all of the components of a standard prenatal vitamin supplement,
as well as additional supplements that optimize the skin's health in order
to defend it against stretch marks.
A -Vitamin A helps form and maintain healthy skin, teeth, skeletal
and soft tissue, and mucus membranes. It promotes growth and repair
of body tissues and cell formation. Joli Mere's vitamin A is derived
from beta carotene, which is an antioxidant.
C - It supports skin, bones, and connective tissue. Not only is
it an antioxidant, but it also regulates sebaceous glands to keep skin
from drying out. Vitamin C is instrumental in the prevention of stretch
D3 - Vitamin D3 is a type of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your body
absorb calcium, which your bones need to grow. Vitamin D promotes healthy
eyes, skin, and teeth.
E - Vitamin E is another antioxidant. It also helps to develop muscles
and tissues, which prevents wrinkles and premature aging of the skin.
It helps to keep skin hydrated, and it addresses age spots, falling
hair, and dandruff. It improves circulation and healing of scars. Research
has shown that large doses of vitamin E double healthy cell reproduction,
which slows the aging process and forestalls premature wrinkling of
the skin. Vitamin E is the major lipid-soluble antioxidant in the cell
antioxidant defence system.
- Also known as Vitamin B1, thiamin helps the body's cells convert carbohydrates
into energy. Thiamin is also essential for the functioning of the heart,
muscles, and nervous system.
- Also known as vitamin B2, riboflavin is useful for addressing the
following: increasing energy levels, boosting immune system function,
maintaining healthy hair, skin, mucous membranes, and nails, slowing
aging, boosting athletic performance, promoting healthy reproductive
function, healing canker sores, ulcers, and burns, and combating memory
loss, liver disease, and sickle cell anemia.
- Also known as vitamin B3, niacin offers a host of health benefits,
but as far as it relates to skin, it improves its elasticity because
it enhances skin's barrier function, helps to erase discolorations,
and revives skin's healthy tone and texture. It repairs damaged DNA,
helps skin retain moisture, is anti-inflammatory, and promotes cell
- Vitamin B6 helps the body to fight diseases, maintain normal nerve
function, make hemoglobin, break down proteins, and keep blood sugar
within a normal range. It also maintains the condition of your skin
because it addresses dry skin by nourishing and maintaining the skin's
moisture levels, thereby increasing skin's elasticity.
acid - Folic acid is a B vitamin. Taken before and during early
pregnancy, it may help to reduce the baby's risk of developing neural
tube defects, which are birth defects of the brain and spine. Folic
acid is derived from leafy green vegetables, and it helps to strengthen
hair, skin, and nails, and it is essential for the body's production
of amino acids.
B12 - Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the normal functioning of
the brain and nervous system. It is vital for DNA and RNA synthesis
and cell reproduction. Our hair, skin, and nails require an adequate
supply of Vitamin B12. Deficiency can lead to dry skin, wrinkles, acne,
brittle hair and nails, and skin problems such as dermatitis.
- The benefits of calcium are important for cell renewal, lipid barrier
function, and antioxidant protection. Everyone knows that calcium is
important for bone and tooth health (for both you and for your baby),
and when there is a calcium deficiency, your body will "steal" calcium
from your bones and teeth in order to promote optimal development of
the fetus. However, you may not have known that calcium is also important
in the function of cell turnover, and in the regulation of the skin's
protective lipid barrier. Calcium promotes well-hydrated skin, which
is a key factor in the prevention of stretch marks.
- Iron is essential for healthy skin, nails, and hair growth. It helps
to carry oxygen to human blood cells.
- Zinc aids in the formation of collagen. By itself, this helps prevent
wrinkles, dry skin, and stretch marks, and it also promotes blemish
healing. However, without enough zinc, a Vitamin A deficiency can occur
even if a person's Vitamin A intake is adequate. Therefore, it's important
to take a zinc supplement in order to reap the benefits of Vitamin A.
extract - Bilberry can help enhance the look, feel, and overall
beauty of your skin. It has been found to contain resveratrol and quercetin,
which are great anti-aging agents. It also contains antioxidant properties,
and is enriched with vitamins B, C and E, which are nutrients known
to help nourish the skin. Bilberry extract's skin benefits go further
beyond those of most other antioxidants, however - it helps to efficiently
deliver oxygen-rich blood to the various blood layers in the skin. The
skin can thus receive adequate nutrition, and is able to maintain its
suppleness and elasticity. The oil-moisture balance is maintained, as
well. Therefore, bilberry extract has two beneficial functions: it increases
hydration and also acts as an antioxidant.
- Lutein promotes skin hydration and elasticity, and it helps to decrease
skin lipid degradation. Furthermore, it provides a barrier function
that slows the loss of moisture from the skin. It contains antioxidants,
which prevent damage to your skin. Therefore, like bilberry extract,
lutein has two functions: it increases the hydration, elasticity, and
superficial lipids of the skin, and it is also an antioxidant.
- Zeaxanthin is a molecule associated with lutein. When taken together
with lutein, zeaxanthin increases skin hydration and elasticity.
Hips - The actual fruit of the rose plant, rose hips are one of
the richest sources of vitamin C. Rose hips act as a natural astringent,
and they have the ability to regenerate new skin cells. They help to
hydrate the skin, thereby keeping it moisturized. Rose hips also contain
a high level of antioxidants.
- This B vitamin helps to keep skin well-hydrated from the inside. Stretch
marks and other dermatological afflictions are often caused by dehydration
of the skin, but biotin stimulates the skin's cell renewal process.
Because B vitamins work in synergy, biotin is more effective in combination
with other B vitamins.
Flaxseed Oil - Flaxseed oil contains high levels of omega 3 and
omega 6 essential fatty acids. Each cell membrane (in effect, the skin
of each cell) is composed partly of essential fats. Your skin is comprised
of countless cells, so the fatty acid content of your cell membranes
is, therefore, vital to your cells' health. Not only do the essential
fats keep cell membranes smooth and soft, but also they help the membranes
to do a better job of controlling what goes in and out of the cells.
Without enough fats in the cell membranes, they are not able to retain
water, and they lose their plumpness. So, for optimal skin health, it's
important to include essential fatty acids in your diet.
- L-Proline, a non-essential amino acid, is, along with vitamin C, a
precursor of collagen. It is necessary for the production of collagen
and cartilage. L-Proline also helps to support and maintain a healthy
-Hyaluronic acid is a polymer. It is produced by fibroblast skin cells,
which decrease as a person ages. This jelly-like complex transports
essential nutrients from the bloodstream, via the capillaries in your
skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts and holds water, which is what plumps
your skin so that it remains moisturized and hydrated. This boosts skin's
elasticity and enhances collagen synthesis.
- Sodium is an important electrolyte, and is essential for fluid regulation
of the human body. Sodium and water balance are very interdependent
upon each other. Sodium pumps water into the body's cells, and it regulates
the amount of extra cellular fluid in the body.
Types 1 & 3
- Type I Collagen is found throughout the body in various areas, including
skin, tendons, blood vessels, ligaments, and organs. It is also the
main component of bone. It is the most abundant form of collagen in
the human body. Type III Collagen is part of the composition of reticulate
fibre, often found next to Type I Collagen in the skin, intestines,
artery walls, and uterus.
