What is GAIA Belly Butter?
GAIA Belly Butter is formulated with key ingredients that aim to help with skin elasticity during your pregnancy. Using a blend of pure essential oils, including mandarin, tangerine, and frankincense, this product works to smooth lines and minimize scars. GAIA Belly Butter not only works to improve the overall appearance of the skin, but also simultaneously fade any existing stretch marks. Once your belly begins to expand, begin to gently massage this product into your baby bump to leave your skin glowing.
GAIA Belly Butter (150ml) contains the following ingredients:
- Certified Organic Wheat Germ Oil
- Certified Organic Shea Butter
- Pure Cocoa Butter
- Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
- Certified Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Extract
- Natural Vitamin E
This product also includes the following essential oils for added scent: mandarin, tangerine, and frankincense.
This product should be used twice daily during pregnancy, and for 12 weeks after giving birth. Simply massage the Belly Butter into your baby bump as soon as your belly begins to expand. GAIA Belly Butter can also be used on thighs, breasts, or anywhere that requires extra toning.
Each tube of GAIA Belly Butter is priced at $33.90 (Singapore currency), which converts to about $23.99 U.S dollars. Shipping within the country of Singapore is $8.00, but when we changed the shipping to an address within the U.S., there were no carriers available for shipping. We thoroughly researched the product and found that it is available on other websites as well, mostly outside of the U.S.
Possible Side Effects
The manufacturer does not list any side effects of using this product. As with any other product, if you experience skin irritation or a reaction, you should stop using the product and contact your healthcare provider.
GAIA products are pure, natural, and organic. The products are free from artificial fragrances, petrochemicals and mineral oils, lanolin and phthalates, soaps, sulfates and other drying agents in cleansers, paraben preservatives and propylene glycol, and other ingredients that may irritate the skin. While the manufacturer states that customer satisfaction is their top priority, they do not easily issue returns, exchanges, or refunds. The following are exceptions: you receive an item you did not order, the product is faulty at delivery, and the product is unopened.
The Bottom Line
GAIA Belly Butter is an all-natural cream that works to replenish your skin during pregnancy, minimizing any stretch marks and improving the overall appearance of your skin. The manufacturer’s products are free from chemicals, preservatives, and ingredients that may irritate the skin. While GAIA Belly Butter seems like a great cream to use during pregnancy, it is difficult to purchase the product outside of Singapore. We extensively searched for the product on other websites, but very few sold the product, and the majority were located outside of the U.S. The manufacturer does offer product reviews for customers to read before purchasing, but there is no money-back guarantee. The return process is not very easy and under most circumstances, refunds are not available. Based on the lack of availability or the ease in making returns, we would recommend exploring other cream options.
