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.

The Mater Body Balm for pregnancy is a light, non-greasy cream that left my skin feeling nourished. I have sensitive skin and this cream didn't cause any irritation. Because it is light, it was ideal for use in the hot Queensland weather - highly recommended!

I love Maters Body Balm for Pregnancy, the smell is divine and it soothes my dry skin on my body after having my daughter. I received a sample pack from maters online after many ladies on my parenting forum said how great their products were, they were correct.
