Marketed specifically toward middle aged women, Caracol Cream promises you will be able to “make all of your friends jealous of your flawless skin.” They market themselves as a miracle cream using a main ingredient derived from the Chilean mountain snail. They also use natural allantoin, natural collagen, natural elastins, glycolic acid, anti-biotic peptides, vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. They offer a 14 day trial to those who “qualify.”
The Caracol Cream website posts numerous customer testimonials with pictures included. They manufacturers also claim to have received the “American anti-aging association gold aware” in 2007. They use collagen, which is essential for a legitimate wrinkle cream anymore. They also use elastins and allantoin, which have been proven to minimize the effects of aging. Vitamins A, C, and E have all been known for their antioxidant properties and ability to moisturize, work as anti-inflammatories, and otherwise provide benefits to the skin.
The main ingredient commercialized by Caracol Cream is the Chilean mountain snail extract. There are not only no studies to confirm or contradict the claims made by Caracol, there are no scientists who care to so much as speculate as to any uses associated with Chilean mountain snail extract. Second, they offer a “free 14 day trial” to those who “qualify.” Just incase you were wondering, everybody qualifies. And while they claim it is a limited time offer, it’s not. Just about every company marketing a worthless product does 2 things: first they fail to provide a real and full ingredients list for observation, and second they offer a “free trial offer.” Caracol Cream follows these 2 rules as if they were scripture. A “free trial offer” is usually offered on a product maybe worth $5-10. They make you think that their product is so great they can afford to offer it for free. However if you read the fine print, they automatically sign you up for an often expensive and difficult to cancel autoship program that you may or may not actually be aware of. When the product does not work, they have already sent you a 1-3 month supply of their product and charged your card an exorbant amount they claim is “discounted.” The bottom line is if their product actually worked, they wouldn’t have to trick you, and whether you pay for it this month or next, you will be paying for that “free trial.” They do not offer a full ingredients list which makes me wonder if they actually use the ingredients they claim or if the cream is nothing more than fillers. It also make me wonder if they do use the ingredients they claim, but in such small quantities as to be of no significance. They don’t even attempt to post any clinical trials, studies, or other evidence to back up their claims.
Caracol Cream claims to use a number of ingredients that have been proven to work. However, they do not provide an ingredient list, clinical trials or other studies, or any other information to prove they actually use any of those ingredients at all, let alone in large enough quantities to be effective. Not just any ingredient, but the main ingredient they push is obsolete in that no scientists have studied, let alone even speculated about its use in minimizing or diminishing wrinkles. They further diminish any credibility they may have had a chance at by advertising a “free trial offer.” As such, Caracol Cream is no miracle, it is a scam.
