What exactly is a stretch mark?
A stretch mark is a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear.
Stretch marks appear on the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks or other places on the body. They're common in pregnant women, especially during the last trimester. Stretch marks aren't painful or harmful, but some people don't like the way they make their skin look.
When stretch marks first appear, they tend to be red, purple, pink, reddish-brown, or dark brown, depending on your skin color. Early stretch marks may feel slightly raised and can be itchy.
In time, the color fades and the narrow bands sink beneath your skin. If you run your finger over a mature stretch mark, you often feel a slight depression.

Benefits of coconut oil for stretch marks and how to use it
Prevention - Coconut ozonated oil is highly emollient and can help keep skin hydrated. This may make it more elastic and less prone to stretch marks. Its lauric acid content also makes it easily absorbed deep into skin’s layers, where it may have a positive effect on collagen production. Use coconut oil as a topical treatment, or try putting it in your bath to silken skin.
Healing - Coconut ozonated oil has anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce healing time for existing stretch marks. Its ability to hydrate skin deeply may also help reduce the itching associated with stretch marks.
Improves appearance - Coconut ozonated oil is sometimes used to brighten the skin. You can try massaging it directly into your stretch marks to lighten them, or mix it with lemon juice prior to using.
Ozonated castor oil benefits for skin
Ozonated castor oil is rich in monounsaturated fat, which is a type of “healthy” fat we can eat. Specifically, 90 percent of castor oil consists of a monounsaturated fat called ricinoleic acid. For the skin, this fat helps to balance out moisture while offering extra conditioning effects. This can prevent stretch marks from drying out and looking more obvious over time.
Antioxidant benefits are also possible. These help to prevent free radicals from causing skin damage.
How to use ozonated castor for stretch marks
For stretch marks, apply castor oil morning and night. Gently massage a liberal amount of this oil into your stretch marks. The primary benefit here is deep moisturization from the oil, which will soothe any itchiness and keep your stretch marks from drying out. Keeping these types of scars moisturized will make them less noticeable over time as they fade.
You can make the product more effective by massaging it into your skin, rather than just applying it on top of your scars. This will help the stretch marks heal even better.
Stretch marks are not a cause for medical concern; they’re a natural occurrence that most people experience, especially they are common in pregnancy, affecting around 8 out of 10 pregnant women. However, some people may wish to attempt to prevent them from occurring or reduce their appearance. Consistently applying ozonated oils to the skin may help reduce the occurrence of stretch marks or speed their healing. It may also help to diminish their appearance.
