Product's Label Information

Ingredients from packaging:

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Sweet Almond), Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ) Oil (Wheat), Perfume (Fragrance), Borage (Borago Officinalis) Seed Oil, Rosa Moschata (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Limonene, Linalool, Citronellol, Citral, Benzyl Benzoate, Evernea Furfuracea (Treemoss) Extract (Treemoss), Benzyl Salicylate, Farnesol, Geraniol

Directions from packaging:

Apply liberally and gently, from above boobs to below bottom - front, back and sides. This process of rub-rub-rubbing will become a magic ritual over the coming months - it's a lovely way to pamper yourself! Please use with joy once a day in the early months and later you may want to use is morning and evening. For mega-tummies (does it feel like twins?) try layering Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Oil first and Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter second. With this dynamic duo in place, stretch marks wouldn't dare! We also recommend you use Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Oil for at least four months after birth. It will help you regain your skin tone as your tummy shrinks away.

Warnings from packaging:

Avoid eyes. For external use only.
