Conclusion of Our Avocet Avosil Scar Care Ointment Review
There are a few things we liked about Avocet Avosil Scar Care Ointment. The dosing instructions are very clear, explaining exactly how much of this lotion to put on each scar. The warnings for this product are also explicitly laid out for customers to see.
Unfortunately, we had some real concerns with this product. The ingredient list is missing some key nutrients often used in skin care products. Next, while there are three sizes of this cream to choose from, they are all very expensive. Lastly, there is no money back guarantee for this product. For these reasons, we cannot recommend this ointment to help you get rid of your scars.
