Most women who have gone through the rigors of pregnancy have a permanent reminder - stretch marks. These marks appear as red or dark horizontal threads along the skin, and can become permanent. Stretch marks do not occur if the dermis is well supported. Stretch marks are the result of the skin stretching beyond the dermis' ability to support it. All OG mama products are created to enhance the skin's resilience to the big stretch while respecting the need for absolute purity of everything applied to a pregnant body.
Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter are rich emollient moisturizers for stretching skin. Trillium's classic skin loving trio of botanicals, Calendula, Chamomile, and Lavender soothe and nourish the skin. A touch of organic beeswax adds humectants that help lock in the hydration. This smooth creamy butter is designed to support the resilience of stretching skin, in effort to prevenmt stretch marks before they begin.
It is well established that synthetic cosmetic substances applied to the outer skin of a pregnant woman can enter the bloodstream if the molecular size is small enough. These substances pass the placenta into the cord blood, and ultimately flow into baby. Many cosmetic chemicals are known to impact the endocrine system, the hormonal system and some are even carcinogeous. We, as mothers on a mission, recognize the vital importance it is to protect baby from such foreign dangerous substances during the crucial developmental stages that babies move through in gestation. We support every mother's right to keep her body clean inside and out. We have crafted these products using only the most impeccably chosen certified organic inputs. Not only are they certified organic, they are all ingredients that have been established to be safe and healthy for both mama and baby during this crucial developmental time.
OG mama Belly Butter is crafted from rich Butters, Oils and Botanicals. The Fair Trade, Organic Shea Butter and Organic Cocoa Butters smooth over the skin bringing emollients rich in Oleic acid, anti-inflammatory properties, and peace of mind knowing African mothers were fairly compensated for thier work so that they can support thier own children. Organic Olive oil, an excellent moisturizing emollient, is slowly infused with Trillium's classic Trio of skin loving herbs Calendula, Chamomile and Lavender. The blend is further enhanced with stress reducing Organic Bulgarian Lavnder essential oil. Finally, we added a healthy dose of a very potent Spanish Vitamin E Oil. Rich in both tocopherols and tocotrienols, this oil, derrived exclusively from Sunflowers, brings the final wave of deep dermal support that is required to prevent stretch marks from forming in the first place.
This soft, rich butter is crafted without adding any water, so that no preservatives ( such as parabens or phenoxyethanol) are required. That is important no only becasue of the potential hazards that these substances cause when absorbed, but also because braod spectrum anti micorbiol preservatives are no freind to your skin. Your skin is your outermost layer of protection against the bacterial bonanza which is the world we live in. Our skin comes into contact with bacteria constantly. Some of the bacteria is friendly, and literally lives on the surface of our skin in a beenficial symbiotic relationship. A good biological anology to this is the probiotic bacteria which live in our digestive tract. Those friendly bacteria take up space on the surface of our skin, which is one of the positive defensive functions of them. Once we introduce a broad spectrum anti microbial preservative to our skin, those friendly microbes are killed, of course, they do not erradicate all of the bacteria, just the weakest. This leaves our skin vulnerable, occupied now by only the strongest, most aggressive microbes and bacteria, and many of which are not friendly. Now there is more room for them to expand, and take over. Those preservatives have just created the environment for skin irritation, dermatis, and eczema. Our products are designed to support the skin through pregnancy, not disrupt the skin's balance.
