Setavan Stretch Mark Cream claims to be able to fade existing stretch marks over a period of 2 - 4 weeks. You won't find much info on their official site, but a few more details can be found on their Amazon listing.
According to the description, this daily moisturizer has cocoa, mango & shea butter + rose, jojoba, orange & olive oil with vitamins & minerals to prevent the appearance of stretch marks. Of course, those ingredients are pretty common.
I didn't see anything that takes it beyond your standard drugstore cream, frankly. At 3-4x the cost of hitting the Walmart moisturizer aisle, you'll have to ask yourself what is there to get excited about.
The cream comes in a 120ml (~ 4oz) jar.
I'm always extra-intrigued when a company guarantees stretch mark removal with a money-back promise. You've heard me say this a lot - it is very hard to remove stretch marks after they occur.
Setavan, honestly, doesn't appear to measure up. Even though there's a list of ingredients, nothing looks particularly special.
Even worse, the official website has almost no detail to help you understand what might set their cream apart. Coupled with pretty bad Amazon customer reviews below, I'm forced to rate this one pretty low.
I'm weighing in at 2.6 stars out of 5, which is just about the Amazon average too. If you are struggling with existing stretch marks, check out my reviews of TriLASTIN-SR and Skinception Intensive Stretch Mark Therapy.
I pay a great deal of attention to Amazon reviews - but only the ones written by verified purchasers. Review "padding" on Amazon can be a REAL problem, and it's usually evident if a lot of the non-verified reviews are 5 stars and gushing about how great the product is.
As I sit down to write this Setavan stretch Mark Cream review, there are reviews by 44 verified purchasers. Only 34% of those rate the Setavan cream at 5 stars - a huge red flag for me (most great skincare product are rated twice that high).
I'll list a couple of the Amazon reviews below, but they definitely do not match up with the loaded 5 star reviews on the official site. So... buyer beware.
As I mentioned above, the official site of this cream's maker, Senvie, has nothing but 5 stars vs. the average of 2.7 stars at Amazon. It certainly looks like negative reviews are not welcome there.
The company does shine here. Their guarantee is 100% satisfaction or 100% money-back.
There's no mention of a return deadline either, so it does seem to be a blanket guarantee/return policy.
Setavan Stretch Mark Cream retails for $35 on the official site but is sometimes on sale there. The company offers free shipping.
The price on Amazon is around $20 so you can save a few bucks and get free Prime shipping there, if you're interested in giving this one a shot.
Massage thoroughly into affected areas as part of both your morning and evening routines. Begin using as soon as you see that stretch marks are beginning to form.
Is it Setavan cream safe to use while pregnant? Definitely, but remember this cream is designed to get rid of stretch marks!
Is it safe to use while nursing? Yes.
Will this be okay with my sensitive skin? Organic creams are generally fine, but stop using the cream immediately if you experience redness or rash and return it.
