DermaTek is a new skin cream that promises to alleviate the appearance of moles and fix your skin tag problem. Find out everything you need to know about Dermatek today in our review.
What is DermaTek?
Dermatek is a skin cream that claims to keep your skin clean and clear. It doesn’t just remove moles: it also makes your skin more luminous while clearing up your complexion and removing skin tags from your body.
The skin cream was recently launched online through DermatekSkin.com. It’s marketed online by a San Diego-based company. That company claims to use all natural ingredients in their formula – including proven skincare compounds like tea tree oil, aloe vera, and others.
DermaTek aims to solve a specific problem in the skincare industry: moles are a common problem for many men and women. However, the only effective way to “treat” moles is to go through invasive surgery, where doctors physically excise the mole from your body.
Unlike invasive mole removal surgery, DermaTek promises to be a pain-free, non-surgical way to get rid of unwanted moles.
The skin cream is specifically designed to treat moles. However, the company is careful to remind you to have all suspicious moles checked out by a doctor. In fact, you receive a pop-up reminder on every page of the website – so clearly, the company takes moles seriously.
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at Dermatek’s ingredients and how they work to naturally alleviate skin problems – including moles and skin tags.
How Does DermaTek Work?
The makers of DermaTek are open and honest about the ingredients inside their formula. All ingredients are listed online and on the DermaTek packaging.
Key active ingredients include jojoba seed oil, sesame seed oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and lavender oil, all of which are popular skincare compounds. Typically, we see one or two of these oils inside a formula, so it’s nice to see that Dermatek has blended all of the oils together.
DermaTek also contains homeopathic ingredients. It contains Thuja Occidentalis 6X HPUS, which is a heavily diluted water mixture that comes from a type of cedar tree. The “HPUS” after the ingredient name means that the component is officially recognized by the American Homeopathic Pharmacopeia.
Meanwhile, inactive ingredients in DermaTek include sunflower oil, tree leaf oil, and soybean oil.
Overall, the ingredients in DermaTek are proven skin soothing oils rich with antioxidants, fatty acids, and other proven skincare compounds. When applied topically, they should soothe inflamed skin, encourage the growth of new skin cells, and clear up your complexion.
These are all good things. However, there’s one problem with Dermatek: the makers of the formula don’t provide any evidence that these ingredients can actually clear up moles or reduce their appearance. The formula specifically advertises itself for mole and skin tag removal.
Dermatek separates its ingredients into different subcategories, including each of the following:
- Cream Ingredients: Water, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, carbomer, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, Tea tree oil, Lavender oil, Sodium hyaluronate, Glyceryl stearate, Peg-100 stearate, Phenoxyethanol
- Oil Ingredients: Thuja Occidentalist 6X HPUS
- Inactive Ingredients: Helianthus annus (sunflower) oil, Melaleuca alternifolia (tree leaf) oil, glycine soja (soybean) oil, SD-Alcohol 40B, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, BHT
DermaTek is available exclusively online through DermatekSkin.com. The manufacturer claims to sell the skin cream at 75% off the “regular retail price”, although we couldn’t find any evidence that Dermatek has ever been sold for more than $39.95 per bottle. In any case, here’s how pricing breaks down:
-1 Bottle of Cream (Unlisted Volume): $39.95
There are no bulk discounts available. You pay $39.95 per bottle with every order, whether you’re ordering 1 bottle at a time or 10 bottles at a time.
The manufacturer does not list the amount of cream in the bottle anywhere on the packaging or on the official website – which is odd when you’re being asked to pay $40 for a small jar of skin cream. We don’t know the volume of the cream, nor do we know how long you can expect the cream to last.
Who Makes DermaTek?
DermaTek is sold online by a company named Deleon Ads, LLC. That company is based in San Diego at the following address:
9450 Mira Mesa Blvd #C204
San Diego, CA 92126
According to California corporate registration listings, Deleon Ads, LLC was incorporated on December 23, 2014 using LegalZoom.com. There’s very little other information available about the company online.
A quick Google Search for the address listed above will show you that it’s simply a UPS Store.
Obviously, a UPS Store doesn’t manufacture skin cream, and Deleon Ads, LLC cannot manufacture skin cream in their UPS Store mailbox. Given all this information, we have no idea where DermaTek is manufactured or by which company – which is worrying when you’re being asked to rub a lotion topically onto your skin.
The company does provide one contact number: you can get in touch with the company’s customer service by email at 1-866-359-5372.
Should You Buy DermaTek?
DermaTek makes big promises about its effectiveness. It claims to be a superior way to remove skin tags and moles from your body.
Unfortunately, DermaTek leaves us with more questions than answers. Where is the skin cream manufactured? Who makes the skin cream? Where do the ingredients come from? How much skin cream do you get in each $40 bottle of Dermatek? Which studies have proven that Dermatek removes moles? How does Dermatek cure skin tag problems?
The makers of DermaTek don’t answer any of these questions. It’s nice to see that they’re transparent about the ingredients inside the formula – which include essential oils and a homeopathic dilution – but aside from that, Dermatek doesn’t give us many good reasons to purchase their skin cream. At the very least, we need some scientific evidence showing DermaTek works as advertised before we can recommend it.
