The individual products, developed by Mustela's parent company Expanscience Laboratories, the sixth largest pharmaceutical company in France, help women prepare their bodies for pregnancy as well as help them return to their pre-baby shape.

Common Concerns During Pregnancy

"During pregnancy, women will notice changes in their appearance that they have never before experienced," comments  Dr. Richard S. Taubman, Clinical Instructor Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Associate Attending Ob/Gyn, Long Island Jewish Hospital.

"Many expectant women may also begin to feel discomfort in various parts of their body, and almost all mothers-to-be are looking for ways to feel better and look better during their pregnancy."

Two of the major changes women experience during pregnancy are tissue distension as well as skin hypersensitivity, and nearly all (96%) expectant mothers are concerned with the way their skin looks.

Topping the list of concerns are stretch marks, which are present in 60-80% of all pregnant women; over 50% experience tender breasts and heavy, tired legs, while approximately one third of all expectant mothers have dry irritated skin. The three key ingredients found in the

Mustela 9 Months® line addresses these very conditions and concerns.

Three Natural Ingredients Create Unique Formulation

Mustela 9 Months® addresses the physical changes during pregnancy through a unique blend of three natural, specific active ingredients which help to promote the elasticity of the skin while reducing the hypersensitivity so many women experience.

Chlorophycea extract from green algae minimizes the skin's sensitivity, while Lupeol (from the lupin plant) stimulates collagen production and ensures the good quality of naturally synthesized collagen. Elastoregulator®, a soy derivative, reinforces the skin's elasticity by promoting the production of collagen and elastin. Both the Elastoregulator® and the Lupeol are patented active ingredients that are a result of Laboratoire Expanscience's expertise in lipo-chemistry.

[amazon-product text="Mustela Stretch Marks Intensive Action" type="text"]B00021D144[/amazon-product]The patented combination of Elastoregulator® and Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA) in the two Mustela 9 Months® stretch marks products represents the first time that AHA's are used in this type of products. This unique combination stimulates cellular renewal and acts on reducing the prominence of stretch marks.

Daily Hair Tip
A humectant hair product attracts moisture to the hair while an anti-humectant repels moisture. Use a humectant to combat static electricity and an anti-humectant to deal with humidity.
