Bliss Skin is a homeopathic skin tag removal serum. The brand claims that it’s a safer alternative to “expensive invasive procedures” for skin tag removal.

But does Bliss Skin Tag Remover contain research-backed ingredients for removing skin tags, or are these just marketing claims? Does the product contain any questionable additive ingredients that may cause side effects? Are homeopathic remedies a scam? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of Bliss Skin Tag Remover?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we analyze the ingredients in Bliss Skin Tag Remover based on medical studies to give our take on whether the product is likely to be effective, or if it’s a waste of money.

We’ll share our concerns about the effectiveness of homeopathic remedies, and feature a real, unsponsored Bliss Skin Tag Remover user review.

Ingredient Analysis

Bliss Skin Tag Remover ingredients

The ingredients in Bliss Skin Tag Remover are shown above.

It’s worth noting that the company forgot to input their own name in the distribution section, where it just says the generic “Company Name.” This is a sign of a low-quality brand with poor quality controls in our opinion.

There are two active ingredients: Sanguinaria canadensis (more commonly known as bloodroot), and Zincum muriaticum.

We cannot identify a single clinical trial showing bloodroot to be effective for the treatment of skin tags, and a medical review published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences found that chemical compounds in bloodroot “have been associated with clinical toxicities ranging from mouthwash induced leukoplakia to cancer salve necrosis and treatment failure.”

Bliss fails to cite any research on their product page proving this ingredient to be effective.

Zincum muriaticum appears to be a homeopathic treatment. We cannot find any medical research showing it to be effective for skin tags, nor does the brand cite any on their product page.

The inactive ingredients in this formulation are relatively safe and non-toxic, which is a good sign.

It’s worth noting that this skin tag remover has the exact same formulation as Amarose, another skin tag removal brand that we reviewed on Illuminate Health.

This, combined with the generic “Company Name” on the label, suggests to us that a low-quality homeopathic distributor is selling the same formulation to different brands like Bliss, and the brands just re-name and re-purpose it.

But are homeopathic remedies a scam? We’ll share our thoughts in the next section.

Is Homeopathy a Scam?

Bliss Skin Tag Remover is a homeopathic remedy, and this can be determined by the way the active ingredients are labeled.

Consumers should be aware that a number followed by an “X” denotes a homeopathic remedy, which uses a different (and unscientific) potency determination.

As discussed in our Brillia reviews article on another homeopathic remedy, brands selling homeopathic products claim that by diluting the original material many times over, it actually becomes more potent, which has never been proven in clinical research and is illogical.

A meta-study published in the Medical Journal of Australia analyzed data from tens of clinical trials on homeopathy. The study authors concluded that homeopathy has not been proven effective for any health condition: 

"The findings of currently available Cochrane reviews of studies of homeopathy do not show that homeopathic medicines have effects beyond placebo." 

A YouTube video on the “Reactions” channel has over 450,000 views, is produced by the American Chemical Society, and investigates in an engaging and animated way what the tenets of homeopathy are and whether or not they are proven to work:

Questionable Claims on Bliss Website

There are a number of questionable and unscientific health claims on the Bliss website.

One version of the product page claims that Bliss Skin Tag Remover is certified organic, as shown below:

Bliss Skin Tag Remover questionable health claim 1

However, the main product page does not show any organic certification on the product label, nor have we ever come across a homeopathic supplement that is USDA certified organic.

The brand also claims that their product is “safe for the skin” as shown below:

Bliss Skin Tag Removal questionable health claim 2

But no proof is provided of this claim, and we don’t understand how the brand could ensure the safety of the product if it hasn’t been clinically tested.

We can’t identify any clinical trials on Bliss Skin Tag Remover, nor does the brand cite any on their website. It’s a sign of a low-quality brand to make assurances of safety for a product that has never been clinically tested, because clinical trials are the only way to prove safety of a proprietary formula.

The brand also claims that their product works on more dermatologic concerns than just skin tags, including moles and warts, as shown below:

Bliss Skin Tag Removal questionable health claim 3

However, again, absolutely zero proof is provided of this claim.

We recommend that consumers be extremely cautious purchasing health products from brands that make specific health claims without providing proof of those claims.

Are Skin Tag Removal Products Dangerous?

A dermatologist and popular skincare influencer named “Dr Dray” reviews an FDA warning about products claiming to remove skin tags and moles:

Unsponsored Bliss Skin Tag Remover User Review

A TikTok creator named “marycorrick” has a video with a live product demo of the Bliss Skin Tag Remover, along with her thoughts on whether or not the product has been effective after 15 days of use:

@marycorrick The serum I used did not for me. So I will be returning it regardless if I get my money back or not. I just don't want to keep things or clutter my place. Thanks for viewing and seeing my results. #SkinTag #blissskin #moleremoval #mole #skintagremoval ♬ original sound - marycorrick

Was Bliss Skin Tag Remover on Shark Tank?

Consumers are often confused about whether or not Bliss Skin Tag Remover was on Shark Tank, because low-quality media publishers like Outlook India use the words “Shark Tank” as part of a clickbait title for reviews involving this brand:

Outlook India Bliss Skin Tag Remover Shark Tank scam

Bliss has never been featured on Shark Tank, and we recommend that consumers avoid media publishers claiming the brand has been, because it’s a cheap and misleading way to drive clicks.

Media publishers do this because adding the phrase “Shark Tank” adds legitimacy to a brand by suggesting it was featured on the major television program.

Conclusion

We are unable to identify any evidence suggesting that Bliss Skin Tag Remover is effective for removing skin tags.

The brand provides no relevant evidence, and the active ingredients in this formulation do not appear to be clinically proven to remove skin tags.

One of the active ingredients in Bliss Skin Tag Remover, bloodroot, was shown to have toxic effects when applied topically in some clinical studies.

This product is a homeopathic remedy, and the discipline of homeopathy has been thoroughly disproven in medical studies. We do not consider homeopathy likely to be effective for any health effect, given that its core tenet (that diluting a substance makes it more potent) is entirely illogical.

There are a number of questionable and uncited health claims on the Bliss website, which is a sign of a low-quality brand.

The only customer review we could locate for this product was negative, and the customer claimed that the product didn’t have any effect on their skin tags.
