The Bottom Line
InstaNatural’s Stretch Mark & Scar Cream is a good product with a few excellent features and benefits. First, the product comes at an affordable price. Second, we did not find any adverse side effects that are associated with the usage of this cream. However, the product has a few missing links that can prompt a willing buyer to look for other alternatives on the market. First, the product does not have a clear return policy that can indemnify a buyer in case the product fails to work. The manufacturer only states that they welcome returns, but they don’t tell the buyer clearly how long the guarantee is valid. Second, it does not have the Good Manufacturing Practice certification so as to boost the user’s confidence in the product’s quality and safety.
