Brief Answer:
Various brands

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Stretch marks in the abdomen occur during pregnancy due to the enlargement of the abdomen and hence the stretching and breakage of the collagen fibres in the skin.
One can apply various cream and oil to reduce the stretch marks.
Few brands are Luciara (Bayer) and Bio-oil.
She should apply it daily as per the package instructions.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
