Curaderm BEC5 is made up of many complex ingredients that are designed to deliver the glycoalkaloids effectively.
If these ingredients separate in your Curaderm you may only be applying one part of the cream and therefore not receive the full effect of the treatment.
This is why you should shake you bottle of Curaderm when you receive it to check that it has not been exposed to high temperatures and to find out if it needs to be reconstituted. Always store your Curaderm BEC5 in the fridge.
How do I know if my Curaderm BEC5 has separated and needs reconstituting?
If you suspect your Curaderm has separated, you can confirm this by shaking the bottle. If it has been separated you will hear sloppy liquid.
When the Curaderm cream is constituted (together) it does not make a noise when you shake it, you will not hear sloppy liquid.
What if my Curaderm BEC5 has been exposed to hot temperatures?
Curaderm BEC5 can be reconstituted if you receive the product and it has separated.
This is very simple to do: -
- Place the tube in water that is at least 60 degrees celsius (140 degrees fahrenheit) – hot tap water.
- Shake the tube vigorously for 1 minute and than place it in the freezer for at least 10 minutes.
- After this time, the cream will be ready to use.
- Then store your Curaderm BEC5 in the refrigerator.
Why doesn’t Dr Bill make Curaderm BEC5 more stable in hot temperatures?
Two of the main ingredients that make Curaderm effective can not be removed to make this product more stable in hot temperatures. If they are removed Curaderm will not be as effective. Trials have been run to test this.
