Vita-Vein is an all-new spider vein relief vanishing lotion that claims to noticeably improve the appearance of unsightly spider veins, without messy cover-ups or painful surgery, in “no time at all.”
In order to accomplish this, Vita-Vein is claimed to be specially formulated with professional grade, clinically proven ingredients that moisturize your skin, including grape seed extract, olive oil, marine extracts, vitamin E, antioxidants, and Chlorellagen DP. In fact, Vita-Vein’s manufacturer claims that its ingredients are so effective that “75% of those studied saw the recognized benefits.”
But does this necessarily mean that Vita-Vein will work for you, even if other topical treatments have failed to address your spider veins in the past? Consider the following:
Are Vita-Vein’s Ingredients Effective?
In short, there is insufficient clinical evidence available showing that olive oil, vitamin E, or Chlorellagen DP (a proprietary form of chlorella) can reduce the appearance of spider veins in any way. There is some evidence showing that grape seed extract can help treat psoriasis, although there is nothing noted for spider veins.
Regardless, we’re not informed how much of each of these ingredients Vita-Vein contains, or whether or not this is enough to provide any benefits at all.
Other Spider Vein Creams
Speaking of ingredients, by far the most common topical, over-the-counter treatment for spider and varicose veins is vitamin K cream. In fact, these creams are so prevalent that you’ll almost certainly be able to find a bottle at your local pharmacy, often for less than Vita-Vein, especially considering its high, non-refundable S&H charges (more about this in a moment).
Interestingly, vitamin K isn’t listed as an ingredient in Vita-Vein.
Customers Aren’t Happy with Vita-Vein’s Manufacturer
Vita-Vein was a very new product at the time of our research and didn’t have any online customer reviews available.
Among more than 320 HighYa reader reviews for these products, they have an average rating of 1.5 stars, with common complaints citing failure to work as advertised, poor quality, and difficult customer service experiences.
Furthermore, Telebrands had an F rating with the Better Business Bureau based on more than 1,2000 closed complaints as of 5/12/15. In fact, due to the State of NJ’s actions against the company, as well as the length of time they take to respond to customer complaints, the BBB actually revoked Telebrands’s accreditation in 2014.
Considering all of this, we believe that you could reasonably expect to experience the same with Vita-Vein.
Vita-Vein Pricing & Refund Policy
One bottle of Vita-Vein is priced at $19.99 plus $7.99 S&H, although the product’s website indicates you can purchase a second bottle for an additional $7.99 S&H. However, we weren’t presented with this option when attempting to check out.
Vita-Vein comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. This means that if you purchase the BOGO offer and decide to return Vita-Vein, you could lose more in S&H charges than you’ll receive as a refund.
With this said, if you’d like to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 855-668-1655.
Can Vita-Vein Reduce the Appearance of Your Spider Veins?
Considering that we’re not informed about all the ingredients contained in the cream (or the amounts), the fact that similar (or essentially identical) creams can almost certainly be found at your neighborhood pharmacy, as well as the high, non-refundable S&H charges, we might recommend searching for local options before placing your Vita-Vein order.
