This is the best seller, TriLASTIN-SR® stretch mark cream. This amazing cream actually reduces the appearance of deeply furrowed stretch mark tissue as well as the characteristic discoloration associated with stretch mark scarring. Trilastin SR targets the source of stretch marks using collagen-rich microspheres, a virtual patch of marine collagen and a custom mix of bioactive ingredients with advanced delivery systems.
Many women (and men!) suffer from stretch marks and it can be really difficult trying to find a product that genuinely works. So keep reading because I have been through this myself and can offer some advice.
This review is based on my own experience with using TriLastin to improve the look and feel of my skin. I decided to create this page to help answer some questions that I had when I was searching for a stretch mark cream – and I hope that it will help you as well.
What to Look for When Buying a Stretch Mark Cream
When buying a stretch mark cream, there are several questions that will probably come to mind, such as;
- What are the ingredients?
- What can I expect by using it?
- Will it work on old stretch marks/discoloration/general scars/surgical scars/different skin types?
- How do I apply it?
- How long will a tube last?
- How long until I see results?
- Does it come with a guarantee?
- Where can I buy it?
If you just buy the first cream you see based on price alone then you are quite likely wasting both your time and money. So stick with me here as I will be explaining each of these in relation to TriLastin SR stretch mark cream by EC Research Corporation.
So What Are The Actual Ingredients?
TriLastin is described as containing a unique structural protein complex of high-potency elastin, collagen and soy protein. The actual ingrediant list as listed on the packaging is;
Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Peg-3 Benzyl, Ether Myristate, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric, Triglyceride, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Butylene Glycol, Octyldodecanol, Beeswax, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin Laureth-7, Behenyl Alcohol, Glyceryl, Stearate Citrate, Sodium Dicocoylethylenediamine, Peg-15 Sulfate, Zea Mays (Corn) Kernel Extract, Xanthan Gum, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Propylparaben, Azelaic Acid, Pueraria Lobata, Root Extract, Algin, Sodium Citrate, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Atelocollagen, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Polyglyceryl 3 Methylglucose Distearate, Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi Leaf Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Chlorella Vulgaris Extract, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Ethylparaben, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Dimethicone, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Disodium Edta, Bht, Tocopheryl Acetate, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Retinyl Palmitate, Ubiquinone, Palmitic Acid, Thioctic Acid, Beta Carotene, Phytonadione, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract.

Not bad hey? To see some more before and after photos from people who have used this product click here.
OK, But Will It Help My Skin?
Yes. TriLastin works on old stretch marks, discoloured skin and even scars from surgery and general accidents.
How Should I Apply It?
For good results you will need to apply TriLastin 2 to 3 times each day. Make sure your skin is clean and dry and simply apply a small blob about the size of a 10 cent piece. Rub or massage this in to the desired area until it is completely absorbed. This should only take a minute.
How Long Will A Tube Actually Last?
Obviously this will depend on how much you actually use each day, however most people find that a tube will last somewhere between 1 and 2 months. Personally I found it was approximately 6 weeks.
A common mistake is to use more than you really need at the beginning as you are super keen to get it working – so resist the urge, it will work just as good with the normal amount!
Results! How Long Until My Skin Looks Better?
Ah, the most asked question. This will obviously depend on how bad your stretch marks are but most users will see noticeable improvement within 3 to 4 weeks. Obviously things such as smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol or sun exposure can slow the healing process so make sure you give your body the best chance to repair itself.
Is It Guaranteed To Work?
Yes it is! Some other stretch mark creams have no guarantee at all but Trilastin comes with a 60 day money back guarantee. This gives you 2 months to use it and see for yourself that it works – and if you’re not happy with your results at that point, just send it back for a full refund. How good is that?
So, How Can I Get Some?
Although a few online stores like Amazon sell it and some brick and mortar stores now carry TriLastin, I recommend you buy it through the official website as it is quick and easy to do and simpler if you want to claim the money back guarantee. Also there are often discounts available such as free shipping making it the cheapest option available.
