Conclusion of Our TriDerma Scar Block Review
The pluses to this cream are its ingredients and relatively cheap price when compared with competitor brands. Shipping is free if you spend over $10. It is free from: fragrance, parabens, cortisone, steroids, animal cruelty, sulfates, mineral oil, petrolatum, and phthalates. There is a 30 day return policy on this product. However, there were a number of disappointing aspects to this product. Currently, the product is out of stock and unavailable for purchase from the company website. In terms of ingredients, Scar Block contains several chemical ingredients which is somewhat concerning andmay make this cream more allergenic for some users. The product lacks methylsulfonylmethane which can be beneficial in treating skin issues. The 30 day return policy is too short and doesn’t allow you to return an opened container of cream. There are no incentives for new customers nor discounts for bulk purchases. In regard to dosage instructions, we are concerned that the manufacturer recommends that you try to use this cream as soon as possible following injury or surgery. We feel that this should be done with caution and only under the supervision of a physician. For all these reasons we suggest that you look elsewhere for a scar tissue cream. You should ideally look for one with a longer guarantee, that has bulk buying discounts, and a more natural list of ingredients.
