In brief: Mederma, bio oil
Medermastretch mark cream will decrease the appearance of red stretch marks.
It will not do much for old or white stretch marks.

In brief: Depends on stage
With stretch marks, prevention is key.
While pregnant or experiencing hormonal changes in teen year, moisturizing three to four times a day with an emollient moisturizer like shea or cocoa butter is very beneficial. Vit. E, wheat germ oils use show improvement. Once present it's best lessen stretch marks quickly. Use of glycolic acid w/retinoids are best. Laser treatments offer great improvement.
