Why is StretchOff™ So Effective?

Doctor Formulation

StretchOff™ is a breakthrough proprietary supplement that effectively combines the most powerful and extensively researched ingredients, giving you a unique and effective treatment to combat stretch marks. Every single ingredient in StretchOff™ was hand-picked by a team of medical doctors and scientific researchers, based on clinical data and designed to help fade and prevent stretch marks more effectively than any other stretch mark treatment available.

StretchOff™ contains ingredients that meet the strength and purity standards of the USP/NF (United States Pharmacopeia–National Formulary). Each ingredient was carefully researched and included based on clinical data. No other product comes close to in terms of quality and purity of ingredients.

Recommended Usage: Apply StretchOff™ repair gel three or four times during the day and StretchOff™ skin rejuvenation cream in the morning and again in the evening, before bed.

1. Dimethicone
2. Cyclomethicone (And) Dimethiconol
3. Cyclopentasiloxane (And) Dimethicone/Vinyl

(Cyclomethicone (And) Dimethiconol is a proprietary blend of both Cyclomethicone and Dimethiconol Silicone)

StretchOff™ 100% Pure Medical Grade Silicone Gel uses a proprietary blend of three different types of 100% medical grade silicone*, the same as those highly used by doctors and plastic surgeons. Numerous studies have proven that silicone is the most important and effective ingredient used in the treatment of scars. StretchOff™ repair gel creates a flexible protective barrier over the stretchmark, helping retain moisture internally allowing the scar to heal quicker.

StretchOff™ repair gel is a completely invisible product that helps reduce the redness and raised appearance that comes from new stretch marks. The gel is applied 2-3 times a day. It forms a deal on the surface of the skin, trapping moisture inside, rejuvenating the inner skin cells, promoting internal healing of the epidermis. The rejuvenating cream is used morning and evening, and works alongside the gel by providing nutrients and vitamins to the dermis layer of the skin, thus rejuvenating the skin cells and reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

*Two dimethiconol blends were developed, known by their CTFA designation (i) Dimethicone (and) Dimethiconol; (ii) Cyclomethicone (and) Dimethiconol. There are a variety of Dimethicone Crosspolymer gels depending on carriers for any specific purpose. The most popular Dimethicone Crosspolymer goes with this INCI "Cyclopentasiloxane (and) Dimethicone Crosspolymer"

    Aloe Barbadensis(Aloe Vera) described as a "wonder plant, contains 75 potentially active constituents including vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Its many purported health benefits include antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant functions.

    Many studies, as early as 1935, have demonstrated the positive effects of aloe vera on skin conditions, burns and scars. In 1959, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of aloe vera ointment as an over-the-counter medication for healing burns on the skin. It has been shown that aloe vera gel has the highest potential as a transdermal drug penetration enhancer across human skin, reducing healing time by up to 9 days.

  • Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) are the richest source of linoleic acid available. Linoleic acid is a fatty acid that cannot be synthesized by the human body and is required for ensuring the integrity of plasma membranes and for growth, reproduction, skin maintenance, and general body functioning. It has occlusive properties, meaning that it acts as a protective barrier to prevent water from leaving your skin. It works with your skin to soften dryness, smooth roughness and soothe skin problems. The use of safflower oil for dry skin is advised as it is said to help maintain elasticity in the skin and is said to be especially beneficial for sensitive skin.

    One study, using pracaxi oil, also high in linoleic fatty acids, found considerable improvements in wound healing and scar attributes and is a potentially useful option in the treatment of surgical, traumatic, or burn wounds and scars.

  • Helianthus Annuus (Sun Flower) Seed Oil retains moisture and prevents the skin from drying out. It is extremely powerful at keeping away bacteria and contains a rich mixture of vitamins and other natural substances that have a healthy effect on your skin and its pores. It is very high in antioxidants, particularly the antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, which prevent free radicals from damaging your skin.

    The vitamin E in the sunflower oil, acts as moisturizer, by helping the body cells retain water inside them, promoting elasticity and softness.

  • Allium Cepa (Onion) Bulb Extract is an active ingredient that has been used for generations to help heal scars. Onion extract has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and can help with the formation of skin collagen. Quercetin is an active bioflavonoid found within onion extracts which is believed to have anti-histamine effects on the skin and can help to reduce inflammation.

    One study found onion extract, heparin and allantoin gel to be effective, safe and simple to apply for the prevention of scarring in patients undergoing laser removal of tattoos. The researchers found that the topical gel preparation reduced the risk of scarring significantly, from 23.5% to 11.5%.

    Important clinical trials have shown that onion extract can significantly improved scar softness, redness, texture, and general appearance

  • Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) is one of nature's super-ingredients with multiple benefits for overall health as well as specific benefits for skin. It's an anti-oxidant and helps boost collagen production. It is considered to prevent or reduce scars, stretch marks and heal burned skin and is the most effective form of Vitamin E for damaged skin.

  • Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil) has been shown to provide long lasting moisture and 24-hour skin hydration protection. Jojoba has anti-inflammatory properties, helping to tame redness of new stretch marks and keep skin calm and comfortable. Its anti-microbial qualities provide an added wound-healing benefit acting as a natural preservative. Because of its unique composition, jojoba is extremely moisturizing, yet balancing, meaning it won't leave skin feeling greasy, and is easily absorbed into the skin, helping reduce the appearance of stretch marks and promote smooth skin and increased elasticity.

  • Allantoin is a natural, soothing anti-irritant and skin protector, providing structural support to cells and increasing the water content of the extracellular matrix which provides structural support to skin cells. Allantoin increases the smoothness of the skin; promotes cell replication; and promotes the healing of wounds, burns, and scars. Allantoin acts as a keratinolytic. Keratinolytics soften keratin, a tough, inflexible protein found in the outer layer of the skin called the epidermis. By softening keratin, allantoin allows skin to hold onto water better. This makes it moister, softer and better hydrated. Keratinolytics also dissolve the material that holds skin cells together. This enables the outermost layer of skin cells to shed or slough off more easily, creating a smoother skin surface. Allantoin not only reduces skin irritation, it also moisturizers and improves the texture and elasticity of the skin.

  • Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is vital for overall skin health and optimal scar healing, as it regulates healthy collagen formation to improve skin hydration, balances skin tone, decreases inflammation and redness as a powerful anti-oxidant and prevents further skin damage. The vitamin C boosts the collagen, which helps the skin regain some of its lost elasticity so that the stretch marks actually narrow in size and become less visible. Especially beneficial for early stage stretch marks, vitamin C helps encourage the growth of new skin.

  • Helichrysum Stoechas (Immortelle) Extract is rich in flavonoids and acetophenones, and contains antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to help heal stretch marks. The first well-known benefit of helichrysum is its wound-healing properties documented to reduce swelling, disinfect and promote healing through tissue regeneration. Helichrysum also helps to fade scars, heal stretch marks, and reduce the appearance of surgical scars and skin blemishes. It's one of the few essential oils that contain “diketones," which help reduce scar tissue and stimulate the growth of new skin tissue. In fact, a study published in 2001 found that helichrysum oil was exceptionally high in tissue-regenerating diketones that help stimulate regrowth.
