Mothers who 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.

How does Joli Mere work? Well, let's first take a look at what actually causes stretch marks, as well as what can prevent them.

Human skin 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 visible.

There are 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.

Of course, 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.

Collagen 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. Collagen 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.

Elastin also 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.

Antioxidants 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.

Joli Mere 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:

1) 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 and hydration.
4) Defend the skin by supplying it with antioxidants so that free radicals can be fought off.

Our products are engineered to enhance your skin's health with the highest-quality ingredients available. After some very extensive and intensive research and development, we have formulated THE PERFECT PRODUCT to help you in the fight against stretch marks. We use pure, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, which are all FDA-approved, and we stand behind our product. Our specially-formulated prenatal supplement program works as a complete system for maximum defense of your skin's health and appearance, and it's a much less expensive and safer alternative to lasers or deep-peel treatments that never really work, anyway, to eliminate stretch marks. Once you have stretch marks, they're there for life, and your best hope is to try to reduce their appearance as much as possible, but they'll never go away. Isn't it better to prevent them from happening in the first place?

Below is 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.

  • Vitamin 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.

  • Vitamin 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 marks.

  • Vitamin 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.

  • Vitamin 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.

  • Thiamin - 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.

  • Riboflavin - 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.

  • Niacin - 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 turnover.

  • Vitamin B6 - 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.

  • Folic 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.

  • Vitamin 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.

  • Calcium - 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 - Iron is essential for healthy skin, nails, and hair growth. It helps to carry oxygen to human blood cells.

  • Zinc - 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.

  • Bilberry 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 - 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 - Zeaxanthin is a molecule associated with lutein. When taken together with lutein, zeaxanthin increases skin hydration and elasticity.

  • Rose 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.

  • Biotin - 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.

  • Organic 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 - 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 immune system.

  • Hyaluronic acid -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 - 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.

  • Collagen 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.
