This review is going to take a closer look at Kelo-Cote to learn more about how this product works and to see if it is worth trying out. Kelo-Cote is a scar treatment that is made from two active ingredients that are designed to reduce the appearance of scars. The manufacturer claims that their patented, transparent and self-drying silicone gel can improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation. They also claim that Kelo-cote can diminish the appearance of hypertrophic scars and keloids which have a raised or discolored appearance and has the ability to soften and flatten raised scars and reduce the redness associated with scars.
The two active ingredients in this gel are Polysiloxanes and Silicone Dioxide. Another name for Polysiloxanes are Silicones which are a type of polymer which is made of repeating units of siloxane, a chain of alternating silicon atoms and oxygen atoms. It helps heal scars by protecting the scarred tissue from bacteria and it increases hydration of the stratum corneum.
The manufacturer does not share how much of each ingredient there is. Without knowing how much of each ingredient there is in every serving there is no way for us to know if it is enough to be effective.
The manufacturer recommends making sure that the affected area is clean and dry before applying the gel. You should then apply Kelo-Cote to the area as a thin coat and allow it to dry. Once it’s dry it can be covered with cosmetics or sunscreen. You should apply the gel twice a day and the recommended duration of treatment is 60-90 days.
If you are pregnant, nursing or have sensitive skin you should speak to your doctor before using this treatment.
You can purchase Kelo-Cote exclusively from third-party retailers. We found one tube online for $25.25. There are no discounted bulk purchasing packages or options offered but that can vary according to the third-party retailer you purchase from.
We were unable to find any mention of a manufacturer’s guarantee and it appears that they do not offer one.
Kelo-Cote Review – Conclusion
Kelo-Cote appears to be a promising treatment that can potentially help you reduce the appearance of scars. It is made from an active ingredient that has been shown to reduce the appearance of scars and it comes in an easy to apply gel. However, this product is not backed by a manufacturer’s guarantee which is concerning and risky. It means that if you purchase Kelo-Cote and find that it doesn’t work for you or you experience adverse side effects, you cannot get your money back. The lack of a manufacturer’s guarantee indicates that they are lacking confidence in their product’s ability. Furthermore, the consumer feedback we saw is leaning towards the negative. While different people can experience varied results, we found that many consumers reported that this gel does not work. They claimed that after diligently using Kelp-Cote continuously for months, they did not see any improvement in the appearance of their scars. You are better off purchasing a scar treatment that is backed by a strong manufacturer’s guarantee for consumer protection and one that has positive consumer reviews that can reassure you that the treatment can work for you.
