Amarose Review: Can a Serum Remove Skin Tags?

Amarose Review: Can a Serum Remove Skin Tags?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

Amarose is a skincare brand that became popular for their skin tag remover. The brand describes itself as “all-natural skincare” for women and states that their products have an effect of “erasing lines, wrinkles, and skin blemishes.”

But does Amarose’s skin tag remover contain research-backed ingredients or is it a waste of money? Are the brand’s serums likely to have an anti-aging effect? Do Amarose products have any questionable additive ingredients? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of Amarose?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we analyze the ingredients in two of Amarose’s most popular products based on medical studies to give our take on whether or not they’re likely to be effective: Skin Tag Remover Serum and Boosting Moisturizer.

We’ll feature real, unsponsored Amarose customer reviews.

Skin Tag Remover Serum Review

Amarose Skin Tag Remover Serum ingredients

The ingredients in Amarose Skin Tag Remover serum are shown above.

Sanguinaria canadensis is the botanical name for the bloodroot flower. We cannot find any clinical evidence that this ingredient removes skin tags, nor does Amarose cite any. A medical review published in the International Journal of Dermatology suggests that using bloodroot topically may be dangerous.

Zincum muriaticum appears to be a homeopathic treatment. We cannot determine what this ingredient is but it’s referred to by several homeopathic websites. As we discussed in our review of another homeopathic treatment called Brillia, we have not come across any clinical evidence that homeopathy is effective.

Tea tree oil may be effective in treating acne and other dermatological conditions when properly diluted, according to a 2006 medical review, but we can’t find any evidence that it removes or reduces the appearance of skin tags.

Sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate are preservatives.

We have not come across any clinical evidence suggesting that Amarose Skin Tag Remover Serum is likely to remove skin tags. We consider this product a waste of money.

But is the moisturizer better-formulated? We’ll review in the next section.

Boosting Moisturizer Review

The ingredients in Amarose Boosting Moisturizer are: vitamin C, retinol, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, vitamin E and caffeine. We chose to not share an image for the ingredients because they take up the whole screen as Amarose publishes ingredient descriptions for each one.

This formulation contains a number of effective ingredients.

Retinol was shown in a 2019 medical review to both reduce the appearance of wrinkles and hydrate the skin.

Niacinamide is clinically shown to protect skin from UV rays and restore the skin barrier as we documented in our JLo Beauty reviews article.

Caffeine was shown in a clinical trial published in the British Journal of Dermatology to reduce skin roughness and damage when applied topically.

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most well-studied anti-aging ingredients. It was shown in a meta-study published in the Nutrients journal to improve skin hydration and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Based on the active ingredients, we believe that Amarose Boosting Moisturizer is likely to improve skin hydration.

Our concern about this product is that it’s unclear if the listed ingredients are the full set of ingredients. These ingredients are presented more like an “Ingredient Highlight” section on the Amarose website than a full list of ingredients as was shown for the other product.

All of these ingredients are active ingredients and there are no filler or preservative ingredients listed, which adds to our suspicion, because most skincare formulations contain some inactive ingredients. We hope that Amarose clarifies this on their website in the near future. 

If this is truly the full list of ingredients in this product we would recommend this product, but the lack of clarity on potential inactive ingredients prevents us from doing so.

Are Skin Tag Removal Products Dangerous?

A dermatologist named Dr Dray published a YouTube video with over 100,000 views that warns users about the risks of skin tag removal products:

Real, Unsponsored Amarose User Reviews

A TikTok user named Tonika claims that she experienced no results from the Amarose Skin Tag Remover:

Was Amarose Featured on Shark Tank?

There’s a misconception that Amarose was featured on Mark Cuban’s popular business pitch show Shark Tank because of a scam run by some websites and YouTube influencers suggesting such.

As you can see in the screenshot below, a media site called “Outlook India” uses the phrase “Shark Tank Truth” in the header of their article about Amarose, which suggests that the brand was featured on Shark Tank and adds legitimacy to the brand.

Amarose Shark Tank scam

Amarose was not featured on Shark Tank, and we recommend that readers avoid any websites or influencers claiming such as it’s a red flag of a low-quality and manipulative brand.

Stay up-to-date on our research reviews

Conclusion

We do not currently recommend either Amarose product reviewed in this article.

The Boosting Moisturizer has a highly-effective formulation and we do believe it’s likely to improve skin moisture and reduce wrinkles. This product has a far better formulation than the skin tag removal product in our opinion.

However, it’s unclear if the ingredients listed on Amarose’s website for the moisturizer are just ingredient highlights or are the full list of ingredients, because there are no inactive ingredients listed. This discrepancy leads us to avoid recommending this product until the brand clarifies.

We cannot find any clinical evidence that the ingredients in Amarose’s skin tag remover are likely to be effective for removing skin tags, and the FDA has published warnings about OTC skin tag removal cosmetic products.

Amarose was not featured on Shark Tank, although some websites claim the contrary.
