Ingredients: Curaderm BEC5 cream (20g) contains the active ingredient Solasodine Glycosides (BEC) . It also contains Salicylic Acid and Urea at relatively high concentrations that assist BEC. Salicylic Acid and Urea may irritate the skin in some individuals. Solasodine glycosides (BEC), 0.005%; Salicylic acid, 10%; Urea 5%
Presentation and Pack: Cream, 20mL (lasts approximately 2-3 months)
Never allow cream to dry out
In most cases, redness and swelling will be observed. Tingling, or some pain may be experienced for 15 to 30 minutes or longer after each application. When the swelling in the affected area subsides, applications should be discontinued. The redness will disappear gradually. This procedure should be continued in most cases for 7 to 70 days, depending on the size and type of affected skin areas and on the individual’s sensitivity. On occasions it may prove necessary to exceed this period. If in doubt, it is better to use Curaderm for a longer period than not long enough in order to avoid a recurrence. Use until the affected area has regrown with normal tissue.
Note: BEC5 should not be used on melanomas, moles, or highly pigmented lesions.
Limitation of Treatment Area: The total area of skin where Curaderm BEC5 can be applied to at any one time should not exceed 25 sq.cm (approx. 5 x 5 cm). For larger areas should be applied a section at a time.
Tolerance: Curaderm BEC5 is well-tolerated. The healthy skin surrounding the area may occasionally become reddened due to the salicylic acid, but soon resumes its normal color on cessation of application of Curaderm. Some pain may be experienced due to the salicylic acid content.
Contraindications: Do not apply Curaderm BEC5 to melanomas, moles, or highly pigmented lesions. If you are unsure of the nature of the area affected, consult your health professional. The effects of Curaderm BEC5 on pregnancy have not been assessed, therefore Curaderm BEC5 should not be used during pregnancy, nor where pregnancy cannot be excluded. It is likewise contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to eggplant, Curaderm BEC5 or any of its ingredients.
Adverse Reactions: the most frequently encountered local reactions have been itching, pain, and burning at the site of the application.
Caution: Adverse Reactions -- Excessive pain, swelling, redness or purulent drainage (pus), fever and any other concerns should be reported to your doctor or healthcare professional
Curaderm Bec5 was featured on the DR. Oz show and was also the topic of the book "The Eggplant Cure" by Dr. Bill Cham. It is manufactured on the pristine island of Vanuatu, in the South Pacific near Australia.
Physicians' Comments about Curaderm Bec5 cream:
"Curaderm BEC5 can get rid of the lesion with no evidence of scarring and in the rare instances in which the lesion returns a simple reapplication of the cream will solve the problem. " - Dr. David G. Williams, FRCPath
"In my experience, Curaderm BEC5 was effective when used as directed and was most useful on the face where an excellent cosmetic result usually occurred. This was particularly true around the nose and mouth where cosmetic surgery would be most obvious." - Dr. Roy Goodman

What is Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)?
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a very common form of skin cancer. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, BCC is the most frequently occurring form of skin cancer, with an estimated 2.8 millioncases diagnosed in the United States every year.
What does Basal Cell Carcinoma look like?
BCC is an abnormal and uncontrolled lesion or growth that develops in the skin’s basal cells, which line the outermost layer of the skin (or deepest layer of the epidermis). These abnormal and uncontrolled growths can often appear as red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, open sores, or even scars. Frequently, BCCs appear as a persistent and non-healing sore that may bleed and ooze for a few weeks, heal, and then bleed and ooze again. In addition, BCCs sometime appear as non-cancerous skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis. Therefore, if you have any suspicious lesion or change in your skin’s condition, it is very important that a well-trained professional examine and correctly diagnose your skin condition or lesion.
Causes of Basal Cell Carcinoma
BCCs are caused from exposure to ultraviolet light rays (UV) from either the sun or tanning beds. Thankfully, BCCs rarely metastasize or spread to other parts of the body and become life-threatening. Common risk factors for BCC include:
•Exposure to the sun
•Exposure to tanning beds
•Fair colored skin: People who have light-colored skin, naturally light-colored hair (blond or red), light-colored eyes (blue or green), who freckle or sunburn easily are more at risk for developing skin cancer
•History of sunburns especially during childhood; even one sunburn during childhood increases the risk for developing skin cancer as an adult
•Personal history of skin cancer
•Family history of skin cancer
This is a list of the main risk factors for developing skin cancer. There are other risk factors. Therefore, it is important that you talk to you doctor about your risk for developing skin cancer.
How do I decrease my risk for BCC?
To decrease your risk for basal cell carcinoma or other forms of skin cancers:
•Limit the amount of time you spend in the sun, especially during the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM when the sun’s ultraviolet rays are the strongest
•Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher on all exposed areas of your face and body every day, rain or shine
•Wear shirts with long sleeves, pants, and hats to protect your skin from the sun
•Avoid tanning beds
Home based healing with Curaderm BEC5
BEC5 Curaderm is a non-toxic product as it has the same active ingredients found in egg plant which is eaten every day. Therefore you do not need to worry about any side effects or adverse reactions. Actually, the products natural attributes make the product so simple to use which greatly contributes to the product's popularity.
How to use Curaderm BEC5?
Curaderm BEC5 is very simple to use. Simply place a small amount of Curaderm BEC5 onto the affected area and cover with a bandage. Repeat this process twice a day (preferably every 12 hours) until healed.
After application of Curaderm BEC5, a tingling or slight burning sensation might occur for the first 30-60 minutes. Redness or irritation at the site is a sign that the abnormal tissues are responding and the Curaderm BEC5 is working.
Initially during the healing process, the diameter of the affected area may increase significantly and ulcerations or erosions of the lesion site may occur. However, as time progresses, the diameter of the affected area will decrease. In most cases, re-growth of normal tissue occurs where the abnormal tissue was, resulting in minimal to no scar formation.
Remember, during applications of Curaderm BEC5, an affected area may appear to get worse before it gets better.
Tolerance: Curaderm BEC5 is well-tolerated. The healthy skin surrounding the area may occasionally become reddened due to the salicylic acid, but soon returns to its normal color on cessation of use. Some pain may be experienced due to the salicylic acid content, but this is only transient.
Are there any adverse side effects to using Curaderm BEC5?
There are virtually no adverse side effects with Curaderm BEC5. Some people have reported some reddening and irritation at the site of the lesion and a slight burning sensation when the cream is applied, but these symptoms are only temporary and go away.
Some people experience a stinging or slight burning sensation for 10-15 minutes after each application. This is caused by the Salicylic acid and Urea in the cream.
NOTE: If you experience severe pain, swelling, purulent drainage (pus), or fever, you should report these symptoms to your physician, surgeon, or other qualified healthcare specialist. These symptoms are unexpected and could indicate an allergic reaction, infection, or a more serious problem.
What is the active ingredient in Curaderm BEC5?
The active ingredient in BEC5 Curaderm is a pure extract called Solasodine Glycosides. These active ingredients are extracted from Solanaceous plants such as Solanum sodomaeum, the so-called Devil’s apple, Solanum aviculare (Kangaroo apple) and Solanum melongena (Egg plant or Aubergine) which are found in the Australasia region.
What to do before you use Curaderm-BEC5?
Tell your doctor or healthcare provider if you have allergies to any medicines, foods, preservatives or drugs. If you are allergic to eggplant, talk to your doctor or healthcare provider before you use Curaderm-BEC5.
How often should I use Curaderm BEC5?
Curaderm-BEC5 should be used at least twice daily but may also be used up to ten times daily. Please speak to your doctor or healthcare provider for direction in more frequent applications. It is important to always cover the affected area with a dressing such as Micropore, which is a brand of paper tape. DO NOT allow the area to which cream is applied to dry out.
How long should I perform applications of Curaderm BEC5?
You should apply the cream on the affected areas with Curaderm BEC5 twice a day until the area appears normal. When the affected area appears normal, you may discontinue use of Curaderm BEC5. When the skin appears normal, applications should be discontinued. On occasion it may be necessary to prolong regime. If in doubt, it is better to keep using the cream on the area for an extended period of time to prevent re-occurrence. It is important to ensure a regular application regime. Multiple skipped applications may result in the growth of normal skin over the top of the affected area. This can result in masking, and thus the incomplete healing.
I’ve seen some swelling and water retention around the area . Is this normal?
Normally this is a reaction to the antiseptic you are using and not the Curaderm-BEC5 cream. We would recommend that you use Hibiclens or an equivalent. It remains important to cleanse the area with antiseptic each time, before you reapply the cream.
I have read on other websites that sometimes the contents separate at higher than 77F.
Please note that Curaderm BEC5 can be stable for several weeks at temperatures higher than 25C, although it is difficult to be precise about ‘damage’ caused primarily through separation at very high temperatures.
The patient will soon know if the cream is damaged once it is applied to a cancerous lesion, because a reaction should be seen within a couple of days. If there is no reaction whatsoever, then either (a) there are no cancer cells present on the spot of application or (b) the cream has become damaged.
However, in the many years we have sold many thousands of Curaderm BEC5 cream we now of only two cases of heat damage, so this possibility is very rare.
After opening the product, the cream was liquid. Does this affect the effectiveness of the product? Is the product permanently damaged as a result of high temperatures, or will it be fine after cooling it down in the refrigerator?
The Curaderm-BEC5 tube is not damaged but separated due to high temperatures.
It can be reconstituted back to its normal paste like form again and is still 100% effective!
To reconstitute your tube of Curaderm BEC5 back to its normal formulation, please follow the following 4 steps listed below:
Step 1: Place the tube of Curaderm BEC5 in a small pot of very hot water that is 140-158 degrees Fahrenheit (60-70 degrees Celsius) for approximately 5 minutes.
Step 2: Remove the tube of Curaderm BEC5 and shake it vigorously by hand. You will be able to hear the liquid when shaking the tube like it is water. Continues to shake until you stop hearing the aqueous solution shaking inside.
Step 3: Place the tube of Curaderm BEC5 into the freezer for 15 minutes.
Step 4: Then store the tube of Curaderm BEC5 in the refrigerator for use. The purpose of placing the Curaderm BEC5 into a pot of very hot water that is 140-158°F (60-70°C) is to fully separate all the ingredients completely before blending them back together into its normal formulation. Following these 4 steps will ensure that the ingredients in your tube of Curaderm BEC5 will be blended back together and the product will work 100% effectively as new. This should also return the CuradermBEC5 to a creamy consistency.
I planning on working outside or participating in water activities. What precautions should I take?
It is extremely important that, after you have applied Curaderm BEC5 to the area, that you cover the affected area with an occlusive dressing. The manufacturer recommends using micropore paper tape as an occlusive dressing. Micropore paper tape is necessary to prevent the affected area from drying out and forming a scab. Water are a great form of exercise, but it is extremely important that you do not get the dressing wet. If the dressing accidentally becomes wet or if it becomes detached before the next scheduled dosing, you should reapply new cream and a new dressing. Remember, it is extremely important that the affected area be covered with an occlusive dressing at all times during the application period. In addition, the manufacturer recommends that you avoid sun exposure to the affected area. If you planning on working outside, we would recommend you put on a wide brimmed hat to avoid exposing your face to the sun. In addition, we would recommend you wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen on all areas of your face, neck, and other parts of your body that may be exposed to the sun.
When is it OK to use skin lotions or creams like Tamanu oil on the affected area?
You should not use creams or lotions on the area you are applying Curaderm BEC5 to. Once you are no longer using Curaderm BEC5, you can use creams or lotions.
Suggestion for application of 3M™ Micropore™ Surgical Tape.
• Tape should be applied without tension to clean, dry skin.
• A clipper may be used to remove hair, if necessary.
• To protect at-risk skin, 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film may be applied and when thoroughly dry, tape may be applied over it.
• In general, do not encircle a limb completely with tape. • If distention is anticipated, use a tape that stretches or a self-adherent wrap to secure the dressing or tubing
A. General taping
Apply the tape without tension, gently but firmly stroking the surface to maximize adhesion. Tape should extend at least one-half inch beyond the dressing. Tape should not be pulled or stretched when applied. If swelling does occur, loosen and re-fasten or replace tape to relieve the tension.
B. When compression is needed
1. Place first section of tape without tension onto skin on one side of the dressing, gently pressing downward.
2. With one hand, secure tape on one edge of the dressing while slightly stretching next section of tape over the dressing.
3. Secure tape on opposite edge of the dressing.
4. Press remaining tape onto skin without tension. Compression should come from the multiple layers of dressing material, not from excessive tension in the tape. Skin distention under tape may result in blistering and should be relieved as soon as possible.
C. When distention is anticipated
Foam tapes generally stretch in all directions; however, non-woven soft cloth tapes, such as 3M™ Medipore™ Soft Cloth Tape, and 3M™ Medipore™ H Soft Cloth Tape have more stretch in the cross-direction and on the bias. The direction of the stretch should be considered when securing a dressing or tubing to an area that is at high risk for distention, edema, hematoma formation, or movement. Anecdotally, applying soft cloth tape parallel to the incision appears to be associated with fewer skin tension injuries than taping perpendicular to the incision.
Note: BEC5 should not be used on melanomas, moles, or highly pigmented lesions.

I'm 69 years old and have been battling basal cell carcinomas for 44 years. Every time the dermatologist cuts, burns, scrapes, freezes my damaged skin, the cancer comes back right next to where it was removed. Have done a lot of research over the last 5 years since I retired, and this is the best product I've ever used that really works. It's a long process, but it works. This is the third tube I've purchased as new damage has shown up. THIS PRODUCT WORKS!!
If anyone is hesitating on buying this based on the price, please don't. For best results, apply more than you think you should, and don't rub it in. Let the micro tape do it's job. And definitely buy the skin colored tape. It hides really well for those areas you treat on your face, neck, arms, etc.
I highly recommend CuraDerm because it works, and the carcinomas don't come back!!!
My husband used to have these bumps frozen off, but now we are using Curaderm.
I have used this product twice before with great success. Squamous cells never returned. I have two new ones in different locations.
This is my third tube of Curaderm because it works. I was raised in the Florida sun when it was good for you so my skin is paying for it now.. product came promptly with a roll of paper tape included. Will use Vita-steam again.
As today is Thanksgiving, I want to express my gratitude to Dr. Cham for developing this incredible miracle cream!!! As a nurse, I find the different stages that the BCC/SCC's go through during apoptosis to be fascinating. Being a 70's baby oil and iodine bathing beauty caused many sun-damaged areas; I've successfully treated others in the past and am now working on 4. I'd like to see some type of forum active to give advice to new users who might be freaking out once they begin to see the base of their cancerous icebergs. The trick to total eradication of non-melanoma skin cancers that have been growing for years is persistently treating them at least twice a day until they are gone!
Love the cream especially on precancerous spots.
The whole secret to getting good results is perseverance. You have to apply the cream until the cancer is 100% completely gone. If you didn't kill all of it in the area you were working on the first time around, the little spots you didn't completely eradicate will reappear later after the surrounding skin is healed and smoothed out. That's OK because then they are easier to identify due to itching and are easy to eliminate.by reapplications of the cream. You can heal very deep ugly lesions with almost no scarring.
Skin cancer, until it gets very obvious, is almost impossible to see. The skin can look 'normal' and have lots of cancer under the surface which the cream will gradually find - which will create more lesions as you continue applying the cream to obvious cancers that you can see. Thus the overall size of the lesion area can increase for that reason as the BEC5 ingredient biologically goes under the tape and contacts surrounding invisible cancer nodes.
If you've been exposed to the sun a lot by sunbathing, it's best to work on only one area such as a lower arm. Don't put the cream on an arm, and a leg, and your face, for example. You don't know in advance how much lesion area the cream is going to create in various stages of healing in each area, and you will not want to have big lesion areas developing all over your body. That's the only problem I've had in using Curaderm.
THIS PRODUCT WORKS!
This product does the job it describes, however it can take a long time of treatment.
