Many women the world over will probably say that if there is one concern they had about their bodies, it would be this: stretch marks. Stretch marks occur when various factors weaken skin and cause its network of elastin and collagen fibers to break due to puberty, weight fluctuations, skin stretching, or hormonal changes. This is when the lines known as stretch marks on the skin appear, in reddish-blue, pink, or translucent white. And while both men and women may be prone to stretch marks, they seem to be most common among women during pregnancy. Many lotions are out in the market, claiming to be the best product to remove signs of stretch marks, but for the most part, consumers have been dissatisfied with the results.
Now, however, there is a superior solution to stretch marks: Gly Derm Stretch Mark Cream. A product of A. Menarini, the world’s largest Italian biopharmaceutical company with a heritage of over 127 years, Gly Derm is available in all leading drug stores in the Philippines. “Gly Derm is the only cream with Tri-Derm Actives, aids in rebuilding collagen and regaining skin elasticity. It is clinically-proven to help improve the color and reduce the size of stretch marks,” A. Menarini Philippines General Manager Ninia E. Torres explains.
The product was launched in the Philippines on October 3 at the Ayala Museum in Makati. The theme of the night was French Riviera, and even the guests came in outfits inspired by the beach lifestyle. In the sea of beautiful people were a mix of socialites, media head-turners, and business leaders. Everyone enjoyed free-flowing wine and hors d’oeuvres while mingling with fellow guests, and while learning about the revolutionary French-made product.
Lexi Schulze was the host of the program, and she was joined by fellow TV personalities Cheska Garcia-Kramer and G Töngi-Walters in a lively discussion about women being affected by stretch marks, particularly after child birth. G, who now has two children, said, “Some people may think that being so concerned about lines on your skin is superficial. But I have friends who refuse to wear shorts or swimsuits because they don’t want their stretch marks to show. And how can you have fun when you’re, let’s say, on a beach trip with your kids, if you can’t just go out there and play with them because you’re worried people will see your stretch marks?” Cheska, mom of three, added, “And as a woman, you want to look good. Not just for others, but for yourself, too. You don’t want to be plagued by insecurities that will keep you from focusing on things that really matter.”
A product like Gly Derm is set to help moms plagued by stretch marks, as well as anyone else suffering from them, be more comfortable in their own skin, so to speak. Torres says, “For best results, it is recommended that Gly Derm be applied two times a day: in the morning and in the evening, particularly on moist skin after bathing. Initial surveys conducted in the Philippines show results in as early as five weeks of usage. However, continued use is advised for a more complete, long-term effect.”
The program also featured swimsuits specially-designed by Twinkle Ferraren for the occasion. Gly Derm ambassadors, all moms, modeled the stunning designs.
