01 — HEAL
100% EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL - 180ML
The use of coconut oil on incision area is a natural remedy to help your skin heal and recover.
Regularly massaging your scar after it heals not only reduces it's appearance but it stimulates the skin and encourages blood flow, which creates cellular growth and gradually fades scars. Given the high content of Vitamin E found in Coconut oil, we have sought to source the finest Organic Virgin Coconut oil for our product. We have deliberately selected a very high grade cold-centrifuged process; which eliminates the heating element to it's refinement, guaranteeing that the healing oil indeed is100% raw. This method of production ensures the end product retains all of the oils' natural healing properties and antioxidants (which have proven to be antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal). Regular nourishment with this premium oil will aid the overall healing process.
Using a generous amount of the oil, massage your scar using your index and middle finger in a circular motion for 5 -10 minutes before bedtime. Leave residue oil on skin overnight to penetrate the scar and aid healing. Gradually as the scar becomes more healed to touch, increase the pressure with the aim to soften the scar tissue surrounding the incision and disperse it ( to make it less rigid).
02 — REPAIR
MEDICAL GRADE SILICONE STRIPS
8 X STRIPS - 4 MONTHS SUPPLY
Silicone strips restore and strengthen connective tissue to flatten and soften the scar.
Introducing Silicone into your scar recovery treatment is considered an optimal therapy, that is recommended by both dermatologists and plastic surgeons alike for the most superior aesthetic outcome. With this in mind we have sought to develop scar Repair Strips suitable for the long Cesarean incisions using this advocate.
Research has suggested that silicone can restore skin and strengthen connective tissue. It can also soften and flatten scars as well as reduce scar pain.
Place strip directly over the clean incision area. Each repair strip can be worn for 15 days. Remove before bathing or showering and reapply immediately. Repair strips can be washed with non perfumed soap and warm water for the duration of the 15 day wear. We recommend using repair strips for a minimum of 4 months; but optionally up to 12 months for further continued aesthetic healing.

04 — REST
100% SILK MASK
We all know that sleep is a crucial step in giving our bodies time to rest and heal.A silk eye-mask is proven to improve the quality of your sleep.
It is no secret that this is something that new mothers don't have the luxury of, we need to try and ensure that the precious time that we do get is of a good quality. Therefore in an effort to ensure that the sleep we do manage to get is of an optimal standard, we found that studies have indicated that sleep aided with an eye mask induces improved sleep, and provides an effective way to have a better night's sleep without taking medication. Studies have proven that using Eye masks results in more REM (Rapid Eye Movement) time, shorter REM latency, less arousal and elevated melatonin levels. Concluding that eye masks promote sleep and hormone balance in healthy subjects. And what new mother doesn't want the latter?
Our silk eye mask can be used if creams have been applied.
