I have heard from some moms that Sunflower Oil is one good product to help lighten or rid those stretch marks.  Sun flower oil is rich in Vitamins A, D and E and fatty acids, it’s good for the skin as it clearer skin tone and clears blemishes or problem skin.  So, i guess it’s a very good choice to lighten those marks as well.  Blend them with almond, jojoba and chamomile, rosehip seed (which is good for scarring or darken skin)  and you get a better result.
