Any excessive form of stretching to the skin such as that which occurs during pregnancy or major weight gain can result in the formation of stretch marks. As many people know, stretch marks are dark and branchy lesions on the skin. These marks can be quite unpleasant and unaesthetic. They can occur in most areas of the body but occur most often on the stomach, thighs and buttox. PharmaClinix Stretchex is a gel that is designed to reduce the appearance of stretch marks when applied daily. This review assesses its possible effectiveness and value for money.
This product contains ingredients which have one or more of the following four actions: anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, nutrients and peptides. The main antioxidants are Caesalpinia Spinosa extract, Kigelia extract, Quillaja extract and Glaucium Flavum extract. Antioxidants remove toxic chemicals from the affected area which normally perpetuate inflammation and stretch mark formation.
Anti-inflammatories such as Phaseolus Lunatus extract, Rutin, Hibiscus-eco, Green tea extract, Pal-GQPP and Pal-GHK inhibit enzymes called cyclooxygenases. Cyclooxygenases produce inflammatory substances which promote stretch mark formation.
Spirulina Platensis, Caffeine and Carnitine, are added to remove the cellulite around stretch marks. Scientific research has shown that these substances interact with the tissue and cause breakdown of triglycerides. Triglycerides are the forms in which the body stores fat.
Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Panthenol and Calcium Pantothenate have been provided as vitamins to nourish the affected area and promote skin regeneration. Vitamins also act as antioxidants.
Lastly, two lipopeptides have been added because they increase the production of collagen and encourage generation of new skin cells. These lipopeptides are Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl-Tetrapeptide-7.
The manufacturer recommends massaging the gel into the affected areas twice a day using circular movements.

Our Conclusive Review About PharmaClinix Stretchex
The price of this product is quite reasonable and the ingredients appear to be well researched. It is quite unfortunate that this manufacturer doesn’t offer a discount for buying bulk suppliers of their product because this product is for long term use. The eventual result will be that the long-term use of the product will be more expensive and tedious.
The guarantee is also a bit too short to test the product efficiently. Stretch marks take significant time to reduce or disappear. This is quite an essential downfall considering that the manufacturer does not provide independent customer reviews about their product for potential customers to read. This means that the effectiveness of the product is not confirmed by an objective source.
Although this product seems quite good, we definitely believe there are better products out there.
