)-- Pregnancy is a special time during a woman's life when most women become aware of all of the harmful environmental toxins they come in contact with on a daily basis. Some environmental exposures, for example, the air we breathe, is not under our control. However, many women become more attentive to their environment and the effects it has on the new life they are creating and they discover that there are numerous environmental exposures that are under their control. For instance, many women decide to nourish their body with only organic food during pregnancy to decrease the amount of toxins, chemicals and hormones their baby is exposed to during the critical stages of development.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It protects, hydrates, and eliminates toxins. All elements that come in contact with your skin are absorbed into your body. During pregnancy, a woman's body is changing on a daily basis. Many women apply lotions and oils to their expanding abdomen, breasts and thighs with the hopes of preventing stretch marks. Recent studies suggest that 85-90% of pregnant women will develop stretch marks. Stretch marks, or striae graviae, can appear on skin which has been over-stretched. Stretch marks occur in the middle layer (dermis) of the skin. This elastic layer is fortified with fibers known as collagen and elastins that allow the skin to stretch and snap back into shape. Elasticity can break down over time as this layer is continuously stretched and the skin tries to reinforce itself by increasing the amount of collagen. This process results in stretch marks that appear as purple or red marks that gradually fade to gray or white scars.
Chemical free, organic, green products will nourish the layers of the skin and will not harm the developing baby. Olive's Organic Botanicals has developed a 100% organic Botanical Belly Serum rich with vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, especially omegas 3 and 6. The Botanical Belly Serum contains organic hemp seed oil, organic avocado oil, organic pomegranate oil organic extra virgin olive oil, organic jojoba oil, and organic rosehip oil.
