Is Silicea Balsam safe to use externally during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

A friend recommended I use Silicea Balsam to prevent stretch marks during my pregnancy, but I want to make sure it is safe to use. I will only be applying it externally (not doing internal dosing even though you can use it internally as well). There is not a lot of info out there on the safety of this product during pregnancy or breastfeeding, so any help would be great.

I would ask the doctor. A lot of those stretch mark creams contain chemicals that can absorb into the skin and go into the blood stream, may not be harmful to you but may not be so great for the kid.
