How it Works - Scar & Stretch Mark Treatment Creams - Serica | Serica Skin Care

Discover how Serica Moisturizing Stretch Mark and Scar Formulas improve the appearance of stretch marks and scars.

With its high levels of skin-friendly behenic acid, Pracaxi oil may be the Amazon rainforest’s best-kept secret. You can now reap its rewards with Serica, a new line of skin care products that deliver dramatic results – and feel as good as they work.

Unique ingredients

  • Serica is the first commercially available skin care line that features Pracaxi oil, a highly moisturizing ingredient derived from the seed of the Pentaclethra macroloba (Pracaxi) tree found in the Amazon rainforest
  • Serica’s patented semipermeable silicone polymer network provides skin barrier protection and reduces water loss while allowing oxygenation

Elegant formulation

  • Many of the products on the market today are sticky, greasy or tacky; take a long time to dry; and/or stain clothes and furniture – all of which may prevent the continued use that leads to satisfactory results for patients
  • Serica was developed to be quick-drying and nonstaining with a silky, nongreasy feel to encourage use and increase the chances for the ingredients to create positive results
