About Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover
Regardless of your skin type, Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover is a topical remedy that can easily and painlessly remove annoying skin tags, without leaving behind unsightly scarring.
All you have to do is use the built-in applicator brush to apply its plant-based, 100% all-natural homeopathic formula to your skin tags. Then, after using Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover daily for 3-6 weeks, they’ll simply dry up and flake away.
Is Miracle Plus really that easy? And even if it is, should you consider it an “at-home alternative to chemical treatments”? To help you find some answers, we’ll start with the basics.
What Are Skin tags?
While modern medicine doesn’t have a solid grip on exact what causes skin tags (friction against the skin might be one factor), about 25% of the population will develop them at some point, especially after the age of 50. There also appears to be a link between diabetes and being overweight/obese.
Nonetheless, skin tags are generally harmless and look like “small, soft balloons of hanging skin.” They can match the color of surrounding skin, or they might be slightly darker. And despite the fact that they start off flat, they’ll eventually grow to “project from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk (pedunculated).”
Ultimately, this makes them more unsightly than anything else, which is probably why you’re considering Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover in the first place. But will its ingredients actually work?
Will Miracle Plus Effectively Remove Your Skin Tags?
Here’s what we’re told Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover contains:
- Thuja Occidentalis 6X (HPUS), also known as Cedar Leaf Oil
- Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil
- Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil
Tea tree oil “may be effective for treating fungal infections such as Athlete's foot” and depending on how it’s extracted, castor oil might have some antimicrobial, analgesic, antihistamine, and anti-inflammatory properties. But there isn’t enough clinical evidence showing that any of these ingredients are effective for drying up and flaking away skin tags.
Also, did you notice there aren’t any dosages listed for Miracle Plus’ ingredients? What’s up with that?
A Quick Note About Homeopathic Remedies
“Homeopathic products are made from minerals, botanical substances, and several other sources. If the original substance is soluble, one part is diluted with either nine or ninety-nine parts of distilled water and/or alcohol and shaken vigorously (succussed). One part of the diluted medicine is then further diluted, and the process is repeated until the desired concentration is reached.
Dilutions of 1 to 10 are designated by the Roman numeral X (1X = 1/10, 3X = 1/1,000, 6X = 1/1,000,000). Similarly, dilutions of 1 to 100 are designated by the Roman numeral C (1C = 1/100, 3C = 1/1,000,000, and so on). Most remedies today range from 6X to 30X, but products of 30C or more are marketed.”
How’s this relate to Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover? When it comes to the cedar leaf oil inside, by the time it arrives at your door, there’s only 1 part per million—far less than needed to provide any real world benefits.
Because of this, as well as the fact that there’s essentially zero clinical evidence showing that homeopathic treatments in general work, Quackwatch calls them “the ultimate fake.”
Will Miracle Plus Cause Any Side Effects?
According to the Miracle Plus website, you should avoid using the product near or in your eyes, as well as on moles or warts.
Regarding the ingredients specifically, “overdose of thuja can cause queasiness, vomiting, painful diarrhea, asthma, seizures, and death.”
What’s considered an overdose? “The appropriate dose of thuja depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for thuja.”
Its homeopathic status and potential side effects aside, how much will Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover cost you?
Will Miracle Plus Clear Away Your Money?
Two 0.34oz (10ml) bottles of Miracle Plus are priced at $19.99 plus free shipping.
There wasn’t any refund information listed on the Miracle Plus website, and customer service (available at 800-711-1361) was closed at the time of our research. So, we sent an email off to email@example.com in order to learn more, and we’ll be sure to update this review as soon as we hear back from someone at Snibbit Products.
Speaking of which, the company appears to be a newcomer to the ASOTV arena, and only has one other product in circulation called Fold It Fresh. Despite their newness, they had an A+ Better Business Bureau rating and no closed complaints (as of 2/3/16).
How does Miracle Plus’ price compare to the competition?
Are There Other Options Besides Miracle Plus?
Walk through the skincare section at your local pharmacy, or enter the phrase “skin tag remover” into any search engine, and you’ll quickly learn that you have dozens of options from which to choose. Not only will some of these use many of the same homeopathic ingredients as Miracle Plus, but you’ll also find products from mainstream companies that use completely different ingredients and application methods.
In general, most of the options seem to fall in the $10-$30, which puts Miracle Plus squarely in the middle.
Alright, let’s wrap everything up.
Is Miracle Plus Skin Tag Remover Any Kind Of “Miracle”?
You’re here because you want to get rid of your skin tags, which means that you need something effective. And considering the fact that Miracle Plus 1) contains unproven ingredients without clinical proof for skin tag removal, and 2) contains very small amounts of active ingredients, even if they were shown to be effective, there probably wouldn’t be enough to provide any real-world results.
Our recommendation? If you want to try out Miracle Plus’ active ingredient, you can purchase a vial of tea tree oil for as little as $2-$3 online. But if you’re looking for the most effective skin tag removal methods, we’d recommend speaking with your doctor about outpatient treatment options.
