Curaderm BEC5 is allegedly a cure made from the extract of eggplant (aubergine). It is allged to have been proven and there is a whole story about how the doctor who founded it was run out of Australia and New Zealand but that his research has been proven in hospitals in UK (contacted them they never did such studies) and how it is unlike normal skin cancer treatments in that it will leave less if any scarring.
I tried it for a suspect growth that would not go away as I did not dare go to the doctor. This was last year. Sure enough it did react but as I later tested it will react on any freckle, mole or any area of skin that is not 100% normal--and that means many benign skin conditions. It ate my skin deeper than I imagined and I had a gaping hole in my shoulder. I contacted them and they told me that "the cancer was deeper than it looked which is normal and keep applying it". I kept applying this and it was not closing. I contacted them yet again and they assured me that I just must have had a tough case and I should buy more so as to make sure no "cancer cells" are left and I "get it all" and heal properly.
Well I did all they said (should have googled them as I am far from alone on this issue as I found in many forums). Needless to say, though they claim you will have less if any scarring than normal cancer removal this was not the case. Firstly, I now know it was not cancer but a benign bumb. Secondly, when this finally healed some 5 months after I started treatment, I was left with a horrible scar that is much worse than any biopsy or removal of cancer or any skin growth would have left (I am actually considering a scar revision now). It is depigmented, it is very large, it is horribly unsightly and the more research I did the more I found out I am far from the only one who experienced this.
Now the same quack is selling a form of Melatonin as an anti-ageing panacea (cure-all). It is Melatonin with Zinc and Selenium. Again thsi snake-oil company who conveniently is located on a small South Pacific Island, Vanuatu, where there are no restrictions on claims or pharmaceutical exports, is again trying to pedal yet another quackery. Do not be a victim!
