From Vanessa, Wagga Wagga, NSW...
...."I have had three boys and it took its toll on my stomach. Deep, craggy stretchmarks around the base of my stomach became a real source of embarrassment and low self esteem. When I read in your information brochure that jojoba could help smooth stretchmarks I said to my husband "They are having us on. Nothing works on stretchmarks!" Anyway, I started to massage it onto my stomach each day. The skin certainly started to soften during the first two weeks then by the end of the third week they smoothed out. It works! They will never go away completely but now they are only noticeable because of the different tones of the skin scar tissue and not because of craggy tear marks which is what they were.
I am now using jojoba all over and have made it the basis of my everyday skin and hair treatments. I have been able to get rid of the clutter of packs and bottles from the shower and bathroom. Straight jojoba rubbed all over and added to shampoo and conditioner does what I would have usually have had a bagful of expensive treatments for and jojoba does it better. You can see the changes as you go and you know what is in it. It feels so good.
I use it on my boys before they go into the sun and after they come in after swimming, fishing or playing in the park. It seems to keep their skin moist for longer and if they do get a touch of sunburn jojoba soothes it quickly and stops the tears when they get into the bath the first time. They don't have hair or scalp problems but I rub it on their scalps and leave it in their hair anyway. It can only be good."
