The Holistic Mom: Spotlight on Basq

Stretch marks are almost inevitable in motherhood, but help is here! I recently got to try Basq Intensive Stretch Mark Butter and it is heads and tails above anything I’ve used before.

The Basq line is committed to clean beauty and the product is free from parabens, phthalates, mineral oils, sulfates, and artificial colors, as well as never tested on animals. I am always thrilled to see a company with these values.

The stretch mark butter feels and smells luxurious (but no chemical fragrance!). I am using it twice daily as recommended and really enjoy how smooth it is. It absorbs quickly and is not greasy at all!

It is made with biopeptides to support firmness and elasticity in skin, as well as a blend of plant extracts to promote collagen renewal, and Algisium-C an algae extract which smoothed and improves the appearance of stretch marks.
