About SkinTek

Using a “revolutionary, all-natural formula,” SkinTek cream promises to help you quickly and easily get rid of unwanted moles, skin tags, and discoloration from the privacy of your home.

The manufacturer claims that SkinTek is so effective that it can deliver results in as little as eight hours.

We’re also told that SkinTek’s ingredients are safe to use anywhere on your body. And that their long-lasting cream doesn’t just work on moles and skin tags, but that it can also help keep your skin clean, luminous, and clear.

Bottom line: Is SkinTek worth the price? Are there other options that might deliver similar results? Let’s get you some answers by starting with the basics.

What Are Skin Tags & Moles? Are They Dangerous?

Skin tags (medically known as acrochorda) are skin growths that often appear in skin creases, making them common in areas like the neck, armpit, eyelids, and groin. They’re common enough that nearly 50% of the population will acquire a skin tag at some point.

While their raised appearance and fleshy stalk might be considered unsightly, the good news is that skin tags are generally benign (non-cancerous) and represent little cause for concern.

Moles, on the other hand, form when melanocyte cells, which give skin its pigment, clump together. While most of our moles are acquired long before adulthood, as we age and expose our skin to the sun, these moles can become darker.

It's important to keep an eye on your moles since changes in their color, shape, size, or height could represent an increased risk of melanoma, or skin cancer.

Whether you're worried about moles or skin tags, your physician can typically remove these quickly and with little-to-no pain in their office. However, if you're looking to save money and avoid a trip to the doctor, will the ingredients in SkinTek provide similar results?

Are SkinTek’s Ingredients Effective for Mole or Skin Tag Removal?

Although SkinTek’s manufacturer boasts their ingredients are “natural” and “amazing,” we’re only told about two: tea tree oil and aloe vera.

Derived from the leaves of the tea tree, tea tree oil is thought contain chemicals that kill bacteria and fungus while reducing allergic skin reactions.

As a result, WebMD lists the ingredient as “possibly effective” for addressing mild to moderate acne (sometimes as well as 5% benzoyl peroxide), addressing fungal nail infections, a relieving athlete’s foot.

However, it’s important to outline that they recommend the following concentrations:

  • 100% tea tree oil, applied twice daily for six months for nail fungus.
  • 10%-50% tea tree oil applied twice daily for one month to treat athlete’s foot.
  • 5% tea tree oil applied daily for acne

The point? There are two.

First, we’re not told what tea tree oil concentration you’ll find in SkinTek, so we can’t know if you can expect to experience any of the same.

Second, even if we could verify that SkinTek’s tea tree oil was available in the appropriate concentration, WebMD indicates that there’s insufficient clinical evidence indicating it can meaningfully address skin tags or moles.

What about SkinTek’s aloe vera? The gel (cells in the center of the leaf) and the latex (cells just underneath the leaf skin) of this cactus-like plant contain chemicals that can help improve blood circulation, reduce bacteria, and reduce irritation.

While you might think these benefits make aloe vera ideal in SkinTek’s formula, WebMD doesn’t indicate that it’s effective for addressing skin tags or moles.

What About SkinTek Side Effects?

Tea tree oil should be safe for most individuals, although WebMD indicates it can cause irritation and swelling in some instances. Also, if you suffer from acne, it can lead to drying, itching, and redness.

On the other hand, aloe vera might be able to address some of these side effects, since it can help hold moisture against the skin.

The company notes that you should “always have your moles checked by a licensed physician before taking any actions yourself.” Additionally, their disclaimer reads:

"Do not use SkinTek if you are prone to scarring or keloid scars. We do NOT guarantee that the product will NOT cause a scar or blemish. Whenever attempting to manipulate or change the dermis, one should expect that a blemish or scar may result. In most circumstances, the use of the product will result in a minor and temporary blemish that normally fades away within 90 days."

How Much Does SkinTek Cost? Are There Different Formulations?

While we’re not told about the differences in their ingredients, SkinTek apparently is available in Regular and Advanced formulas:

  • Regular – One bottle can be used on up to four moles or skin tags, with results in 7-10 days: $29.95
  • Advanced – A “stronger, faster” solution that can be used on up to 12 moles or skin tags, with results in as little as eight hours: $39.95, or two bottles for $79.95

Regardless of which formulation you choose, all SkinTek orders come with an unconditional 60-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges. In order to request one, customer service can be reached at 844-347-0748 or support@tryskintek.com.

Is This Arbitration Agreement Important?

Really quick: All SkinTek purchases are subject to an arbitration agreement. This means that, should you have a legal problem with the company, you agree to binding arbitration instead of going through the court system.

As a result, you’ll waive many of your inherent legal rights as soon as you place your order, including becoming part of a class action lawsuit.

How does this compare to the competition?

Are There Other Skin Tag & Mole Removal Creams Like SkinTek?

In four words? There are a lot. Which is something you can see for yourself by entering the phrase “skin tag remover” or “mole remover” into just about any search engine.

If you walk the aisles of your local pharmacy, you’ll almost certainly find at least a couple skin tag remover creams as well, which could help prevent an online order and paying the associated shipping.

We’ve even reviewed a couple of popular options here at HighYa, including Tag Away, Revitol, and Miracle Plus.

As mentioned above, many of these feature similar ingredients to SkinTek’s formulation and might, therefore, deliver similar results. But the biggest difference is price since much of the competition can be purchased for $10 to $20.

From a customer perspective, are they finding SkinTek’s higher price worthwhile?

Are SkinTek’s Customer Reviews Positive?

There weren’t any online customer reviews for SkinTek at the time of our research, which is no surprise since the company’s URL has only been registered since October 2016.

It appears that SkinTek is owned by Venom Advertising, LLC, based out of San Diego, CA, although almost no additional information was available about them on third-party websites.

What does this mean for you? Let’s go ahead and bring together everything we’ve discussed so far.

When It Comes to SkinTek, What Do We Really Know?

Look, it’s completely understandable if you’re self-conscious about the appearance of skin tags or moles, and that you want to avoid going to the doctor and save money at the same time.

But based on what we’ve learned here, SkinTek basically amounts to an unknown formulation of ingredients, in unknown dosages, and from a completely unknown manufacturer.

To boot, the product is too new to have garnered any customer feedback and most of the competition—using the same key ingredients—is meaningfully less expensive.

Need even more food for thought? One of the product’s websites addresses SkinTek as a cream, while another insinuates that it’s some kind of liquid drops.

Is SkinTek’s mole and skin tag removal formulation a cream or liquid drops? What ingredients does it contain? In both instances, we’re simply not told.

Should you purchase SkinTek? You earned your money, so you get to decide where to spend it. But if you gave the skin tag and mole removal cream a try, be sure to tell us about your experience in your review below!

    Does not work

    I thought I would give this product a try since I am prone to skin tags and moles. However, I have been using the product for over two weeks now on just two of my skin tags, one big and one small with no results what so ever.

    So bottom line, this product does not work.

    Plus when you sign up for their "special start-up pricing" they put you on an auto-ship program which I do not like.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Rip off

    • La Habra, CA,
    • Dec 3, 2016

    I purchased the product through a VERY confusing website process. Although I only wanted the $19.95 option, and I clearly ordered accordingly, they billed me for the 'Premium' version ($39.95). On top of that - I was also billed for the original $19.95 version.

    I actually received the Premium Cream.

    One month later - although not receiving any additional product - my debit card was AGAIN billed for $39.95.

    This company is a front for some kind of debit/credit card billing scam.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My Opinion: Scam

    I purchased the Skintek Advanced formula and used it on 6 skintags and one mole every day for a week with absolutely no changes. I was charged $39.95 twice for two small jars and then a third charge of $19.95 for something I'm not sure of because the two jars were all I received. But then the following month I was charged again for the two jars at $39.95/each. When I looked back at the site where I ordered from, I saw where it said there was a money back guarantee, but no contact information. If I had not read the article from "HighYa", I might not have ever known how to contact the company that makes Skintek. My advice: save your money and don't buy this high-priced scam product. It is worthless.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Scam

    • PA,
    • Dec 2, 2016

    This is a SCAM. I bought the 2nd option at $79.00. I've been using for 3 days. It claims it may sting a bit and could possible be removed within 8 hours. I know it's only been 3 days, however, I feel no stinging and there is absolutely no change in any of my skin tags or moles. It's just like putting regular cream on them. Also, you can't get through on the phone - I was on hold for 1 hour! I'm sure they have no intention of picking up the phone. I will keep trying to get through but I'm pretty sure I won't be receiving a refund.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
