The Natural Miracle Oil for Stretch Marks

The body goes through so much during pregnancy, making it more important than ever to take good care: mentally, emotionally and physically. 

Pregnancy is one of life’s most precious gifts and the best miracle to experience. There is so much to look forward to and every mother-to-be deserves to enjoy the best there is, during their pregnancy. 

Apart from getting regular and safe exercise, enough sleep, eating healthily and drinking enough fluids, prepare the skin for all the stretch-and-pull changes it will go through, during and after pregnancy. Rich with antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that promote new cell growth; it is no surprise that marula oil is called Africa’s miracle oil. 

Women have that special glow when they are pregnant. For this reason, it is important to give the skin what it needs to improve elasticity, which helps repair and reduce marks and scars. 


Other than regularly applying 100% natural marula oil all over the body to enhance the skin’s hydration and suppleness, and help prevent stretch marks, there are even more benefits for mothers-to-be:

  1. Pregnant & Breastfeeding Women
    Vaginal dryness is a common symptom during and after pregnancy – the main cause being reduced estrogen levels. Estrogen helps keep vaginal tissue healthy by maintaining normal lubrication, tissue elasticity and acidity. Virgin marula oil is an effective option for relieving vaginal dryness and moisturizing the skin during and after pregnancy. Marula oil helps keep chapped nipples moist while simultaneously hydrating and soothing the skin. Marula oil also clears and loosens blebs – the white milk blisters that form on the tips of the nipple which plug the ducts. 
  2. Cesarean Sections
    Cesarean sections (also known as c-sections) are known to leave scars that sometimes don’t fade away entirely. Virgin marula oil is especially effective at reducing the appearance of c-section scarring. The rich Vitamin E and mineral content promotes new cell growth ultimately repairing and reducing the appearance of scars and healing the skin. 


Marula oil is non-greasy, easily penetrates the skin and absorbs quickly. It is important to know the different skin types, as the amount applied will differ for every type. Every person’s skin is different; it is recommended to use own discretion to apply enough oil.

MOZaic’s generic guideline to applying marula oil:
  1. MOZaic Marula Oil can be applied successfully before, during all trimesters and after pregnancy.
  2. Squirt oil in hands and gently massage onto the relevant area. The necessary amount of oil will depend on the area and skin type. Apply two to three times daily. For best result, apply the oil for a minimum of 3 months.
  3. Apply MOZaic Marula Oil to areas that are prone to stretch marks, such as:  abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, legs, lower back and breasts. Also apply to already visible stretch marks and c-section scar.
  4. Marula oil can be applied after the pregnancy as a moisturiser on the face, hands and body. 


It is not only mothers who can enjoy the benefits of marula oil. Virgin marula oil can be used as an additional product to hydrate and soften babies’ delicate skin. Newborn babies’ scalp is often dry and flaky. Gently applying marula oil to a baby’s scalp can also assist to naturally moisturise the skin.
