I might be one of the last people who have discovered coconut oil but I am so glad I did. I just bought some last week after reading that it helps with stretch marks. I'm 15 weeks pregnant now and wanted to get a jump on preventing any new ones.
So far I love the way it feels and smells. I've been using it as an all around moisturizer. I think it really does add moisture but I'm not sure if it is sound anything for preventing stretch marks. I don't have any new ones and my existing ones look the same.
I'll keep you updated. I'm going to keep using it.
I also am going to try it out for some cooking too. The health benefits are much better than using a regular oil.
