Mater Body Balm for pregnancy helps soften and replenish your skin through the stress and stretching of pregnancy. This soothing balm is an ideal moisturising treatment specially formulated to promote softness and elasticity and help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
As your body changes and baby grows throughout your pregnancy your skin stretches to accommodate these changes. During this time your skin can often become tight and dry resulting in a loss of elasticity which impacts its ability to cope with stretching.
Mater Body Balm for pregnancy is designed to nourish and hydrate your skin to promote softness and elasticity and help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Regular massage with our balm will deeply moisturise your skin restoring suppleness and locking in nutrients to effectively remedy visible dryness and discolouration.
Directions for use
Gently massage Mater Body Balm for pregnancy into your skin as often as required, focusing on areas prone to dryness and stretching. For best results use throughout your pregnancy and following the birth of your baby until your body returns to its pre-pregnancy weight. This balm is also suitable as an all over intensive moisturising treatment.
Mater Body Balm for pregnancy is available now through our online store and our retail partners.
Dermatological testing has proven Mater Body Balm for pregnancy is a non-irritant formulation that is suitable for sensitive skin.
How was it tested?
Mater’s product development team enlisted an independent organisation to undertake a dermatological evaluation of the Mater Body Balm for pregnancy. The organisation recruited 50 volunteer panel members 27 of which were self-described as having sensitive skin.
The test method selected was a patch test; a widely accepted method that requires repeated application of the product directly onto the panel member’s skin over a defined period of time. Panel members were regularly monitored during the evaluation to monitor and measure any reactions to the product.
Over the course of the evaluation there were no adverse reactions of any kind noted. This result supports that the Mater Body Balm for pregnancy is a non-irritant formula that is suitable for sensitive skin.

I have used this balm throughout my pregnancy and it has been amazing for my stretched, dry, tight skin! It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised for the whole day. I love that this product is made from 95% naturally derived ingredients and is gentle on my sensitive skin. It is a fantastic product and a great price, and delivers everything it promises and more. I will continue to use this lovely balm after I give birth, as it is the perfect all over moisturiser :)

I liked the feeling of lightness when I rubbed the Body Balm onto my growing tummy. The balm was absorbed very quickly and it left my skin feeling soft. I also loved the smell - very mild and pleasant. Since pregnancy I've been put off by many smells, even some nice ones, but I can't handle them if they are too strong. This Balm is just perfect.

I am a fan of Mater products, currently using their nappies for my toddler. I decided to give mater body balm ago when I fell pregnant with my second child. I had major complications during my first pregnancy, as a result I had to have surgery. I have 15-20 cm vertical scar on my belly and was worry about the itch and stretching from Bub growing on me so I used mater body balm the day I found out I am pregnant. I love and will continue to use it, even after birth because I love the texture and feel of the balm, it doesn't have an over the top scent like other moisturiser (which at times made me feel sick). I love this balm as it locks in moisture and extremely affordable. Finally I love the fact that I'm supporting my local hospital where my kids are and will be born.

I would and have highly recommend this product to other mummies. It is so easy to spread and soaks in so quickly, I hated to slimy feeling after using other products. The scent is subtle and fresh. By far my favourite product at the moment. I will continue to use it after baby is born.

The pregnancy balm is a lovely fast acting, soothing moisturiser to use on your skin before and after the birth of you child. The charming fragrance of the balm makes applying the product two-three times daily a calming experience.
Tara from Dalby
I received a sample of this and fell in love with it. My skin is so soft and silky and the smell is light and refreshing, meaning that I can tolerate the smell while pregnant. Not often do I go out of my way to get a product because it is so good, but this is one of them. The delivery was fast and easy. I will be recommending this to everyone, I love it!!!
Nicole from banks
A lovely, light but freshly fragrance balm that I used both while pregnant and post pregnancy. I use it as an all over moisturizer and it has helped reduce the appearance of my stretch marks and is quickly absorbed without leaving a greasy residue. I recommend to all my friends during and after pregnancy.
Leah from Hillcrest
The product was easily absorbed with neutral scent and even better when 95%of it's ingredients are naturaliy derived.
