Bya~have you ever used olive butter?
I used olive oil on some stretch marks on my tummy at one point - it is WONDERFUL. I have sensitive, oily skin, and I got no breakouts, my skin felt very smooth and soft, and the marks faded in three weeks to almost invisible. (I think that may have also been the rubbing it on though, stimulating the bloodflow)

I applied a handful or so once a day of straight olive oil (bought from a healthfood shop, for cooking in!), and massaged it on/in for about fifteen-twenty minutes.
I would still be surface oily after this, but I'd just wear a bra and low skirt, and allow the oil to soak into my skin. I noticed an improvement after about 6 days.  Smiley

I'm sorry, I don't remember the brand! Sad
It was a few years ago now.
