Pregnancy presents unique needs, especially for expanding skin. We use butters that soothe dry, itchy skin and help prevent stretch marks. Combine those with plant-based oils that promote cell regeneration and prevent fine lines and wrinkles and you get the perfect lotion for changing skin.
We recommend using this body butter after a shower to lock in moisture as well as any time your skin feels dry. Start using it early in pregnancy to help your skin stay moisturized and smooth. Keep using it postpartum to help encourage shrinking.

This has significantly helped with my itchy growing belly. It’s pretty thick when getting out of the container but rubs on easily. My kids tell me my belly smells like chocolate after. My belly has stretched with a twin pregnancy and I use this butter as soon as I start wanting to scratch and it’s instant relief!

On the Fence. It’s difficult to use and the chocolate smell is overwhelming and just not for me. Not sure if I’ll continue to use. I think if it was softer I would be more inclined to continue trying.

This belly butter is incredible! It smells so amazing!! It has great ingredients that I feel good about putting into my growing belly. It leaves my skin feeling so hydrated and nourished! I cannot say enough good things about this! I only wish I had found it sooner in my pregnancy!

I started using this around 14 weeks pregnant, when I was just starting to have a bump. I used this a couple times a week throughout my pregnancy, and everything night from about 35 weeks on and I never got stretch marks! I love the texture and the smell and recommend it to my newly pregnant friends.

I am in the process of losing weight as an older woman, so my skin is suffering some ugly effects. I started using Soothing Belly Butter last fall and I see a difference. It is reducing old stretch marks and it is firming up some of the sagging skin struggles. It smells GREAT and works into my skin very easily without leaving a greasy feeling behind. I feel like I am caring for my body when I use this. I also used it on my elbows all winter simply to see if it could help them not get scaly and it worked wonderfully for that, too!

I am trying this for the first time, and wish I had it for my previous 2 pregnancies! I experience itchy skin really bad, especially around my chest area. I end up scratching myself to the point of scabs. I’ve been using this daily, in the AM, after a post-workout shower, and before bed. It alleviates the itch, and the smell is AMAZING! Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant or maybe not, but I always tell my husband I wish I could eat it because it smells so good. I hope it works for stretch marks, but I can’t speak to that yet as I’m early in my first trimester, but if it helps eliminate the appearance of current stretch marks, I’ll be pleasantly surprised and pleased.

I purchased this belly butter for postpartum use and it ended up being one of my most favorite products. I found it to be soothing and nourishing and honestly believe that it helped my stomach shrink during the early postpartum days. I was so excited about it that I shared with my mom, who also bought some and loved it herself! This Belly Butter would make an excellent baby shower gift for a new mom.

This stuff works so well. It was pretty thick, and somewhat difficult to spread, but I saw a visible difference, and it really helped my stretched out skin.

Feels very smooth going on. It it’s butter which was new for me so once you adjust from lotion to butter its been very enjoyable. Starting to get easier to apply the more I do it. Love the ingredients and the way it smells.

I just started using this and wish I used it with my first two pregnancies! I’m in my early weeks of the first trimester but have already begun experiencing that super itchy skin, especially on and around my breasts. I literally would scratch them like crazy, so I decided to give this a try. It’s been SO AMAZING! I apply it pretty much anytime I feel an itch coming on, and it immediately relieves the sensation. I usually apply it in the AM, when I shower after a workout, and before bed. Can I add that the cocoa butter adds the most AMAZING smell? Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant or maybe it’s because its cocoa, but I tell my husband every night I wish I could eat it because it smells so delicious. I hope to see an improvement in my existing stretch marks, but if not, I won’t be disappointed, because my main purpose was to deal with the itchiness, and that’s a 10/10.

i love this stuff! i’m only in my first trimester, so not sure at how well it will work at preventing stretch marks, but i’ve already noticed a slight difference in the stretch marks i had from my son. in the container the consistency is like hard butter, and then as soon as you start rubbing it on it basically melts into your skin. it makes my skin feel so soft without leaving a residue which i really appreciate as someone with sensory issues

I used this my entire twin pregnancy and I did not develop 1 stretch mark! Amazing!
I am so disappointed in this product upon receiving. After reading all the reviews I expected a solidified consistency, which I’m ok with, but I opened it and it’s soft with a bunch of small beaded chunks that don’t melt when applied on the skin. The smell is great, like natural cocoa butter, but I can’t get over these tiny beads that I am covered in.
Someone from our customer service team will reach out to you! It should not be like that.

I love the smell of this product (smells like Chocolate!!) and it definitely is providing me relief in this 3rd trimester, however I’m not a fan of the consistency. It’s very hard (but melts when rubbed on the skin). I find it hard to get out of the container and have to use a toothpick to mix it in order to get it out more easily. I’d love it if it came with a little tiny spoon or something to scoop a tiny bit out each time I use it.

So far so good. I’m coming up on 30 weeks pregnant and so far no stretch marks using this twice a day. Buying another jar for sure.

I wasn’t sure about the smell at first (we’re low scent and my pregnancy nose is so sensitive) but after applying it fades significantly. I love that a little goes a long way and that it absorbs into my skin so well! I haven’t noticed any new stretch marks this pregnancy (35 weeks) and I’m hoping it stays that way. As always, I love that my son can use this as well (he’s always gotta do what moms doing).

This product is amazing! I started using it in my second trimester all throughout my pregnancy. It always took the itch away and made my stomach soft and moisturized. Now that I had my baby, I use it as a body butter after I shower. Love it and the yummy chocolate smell it has!

I loved the belly butter on my pregnant belly! The lotion melts in my hands, has a soft and pleasant scent, and feels so nice. I wait a few minutes before putting a shirt on so the oil is absorbed well first.

I put this on every night after taking a shower, and it has been amazing for my growing belly. I am currently 38 weeks pregnant and have been using it for a few months now. It has helped with stretch marks and dryness and the smell is very nice.

I love this stuff!! I’m currently 7mo pregnant and have been using it since I first found out about my pregnancy. I have yet to get a single stretch mark! It also smells so amazing and feels so nice on my ever expanding belly. Thank you!!
