Miranda Castro's Healing Cream for Scars is to aid the healing of recent or old scars caused by injury, disease or surgery.
This new packaging contains twice the amount of cream for only $9 more (old price was $20 for 1.7 oz). It is the same clever vacuum pump which keeps the contents free from contamination, but this pump is bigger and easier to use. This tube is transparent so you can always see how much you have left.
This cream isn't at all sticky or greasy. It is smooth, light and easily absorbed and it has a lovely, gentle smell. The homeopathic ingredients are in the lowest of potencies to make them safe and effective and compatible with constitutional homeopathy.
Miranda developed her Scars Cream for newly delivered mothers who were desperate for something to help their c-section or episiotomy scars to heal. One creative mom used it on her stretch marks and they faded almost away. Others used it on old surgical scars and theirs faded and became flatter. A few teenagers tried it on their acne scars and it helped some of them as well.
This cream is brilliantly soothing and healing for most scars - both recent and old.
Miranda Castro's Healing Cream for Scars can provide healing and relief from the following:
- Pulling, stiffness of scars from keloids/scar tissue. (Thiosinaminum and Silica)
- Lumpiness and hard tissue from keloids/scar tissue either in, around or under a scar. (Thiosinaminum)
- Soreness and redness from skin damage. (Calendula and Symphytum)
- Apply a small amount 1-3 times daily.
- Use less often once it has begun to help i.e. once the scar has started to soften and fade.
- Stop on significant improvement.
For topical use only. Do not apply to broken skin as it can cause a bit of irritation.
Do not use if seal is broken. If pregnant or breast feeding, ask a health care professional before use. Keep out of reach of children. Keep sealed, in a dark, cool place away from direct sunlight.
Aloe vera and several healing oils including Sweet Almond, Vitamin E oils, and Rosemary and Vetiver essential oils soften and soothe.
Tinctures of Calendula and Symphytum help the skin to heal and rebuild.
Homeopathic Thiosinaminum in a low potency and the cell salt Silica soften scar tissue and to further support the skin to heal.
Borax (a naturally occurring salt) is used as a preservative, and a soy-based wax bring everything together into a deliciously smooth cream.
No artificial colors. No perfumes. No petroleum products. No propylene glycol. No parabens. No lanolin. No toxic ingredients. No animal testing.
Q. What’s the difference between the Joint and the Scar Cream?
A. The scar cream is designed to act only on the skin – it does not have any ingredients for painful joints. The joint cream has a number of ingredients specifically for pain and/or swelling and/or inflammation to injured or arthritic joints and also to surrounding tissues of the joint.
Q. Can I put the Joint Cream on a Scar or vice versa?
A. You can do so without causing any harm but to get specific improvements you need to use the correct cream.
Q. Have there been any reported side effects with any of your creams?
A. I have not heard of any adverse reactions to either of my creams. The bases for both are the same and include almond oil, aloe vera, vitamin E oil. These products have been carefully chosen for their safety and gentleness but if you have a known allergy to any of these ingredients you should avoid using my creams. The aromatherapy oils are likewise super gentle and in small enough quantities they are unlikely to elicit an allergic response.
Q. What are the bases of your creams made from?
A. They are in a neutral aqueous base – one that is water soluble. This means that they are easily absorbed by your joints and/or scars. There’s a little soy-based wax to emulsify them i.e. to turn them from a liquid into a delicious cream.
There are no petrochemicals to clog up your pores. There’s no lanolin to cause allergic reactions or unpleasant stickiness. There are no perfumes to cause allergies. There are no toxic ingredients including no parabens or propylene glycol to build up or cause side effects.
Q. How are your creams preserved?
A. We have added a little borax (a naturally occurring salt) to act as a preservative. In addition the container itself is unique – a clever pump dispenser that keeps the air out thereby preserving the freshness of the creams and preventing contamination.
Q. Why do your creams contain aromatherapy oils? I thought they antidoted homeopathy.
A. Some aromatherapy oils (eucalyptus, menthol, camphor and tea tree) are 'medicinal' and have a very strong odor. In large doses these can counteract the effect of a homeopathic remedy. Small doses of most aromatherapy oils are just fine. I have chosen an oil that is super gentle, that has a proven track record with healing damaged skin tissue. From personal experience I know this oil also works fine alongside homeopathic medicines without counteracting their healing effects. There are just a few drops in each tube so no need to worry - you can just enjoy its lovely scent and be assured it is adding to the healing qualities of the cream.
Q. Can you tell me some more about the active ingredients in your cream?
A. I have chose ingredients carefully with many years of feedback from patient.
- Calendula and Symphytum tinctures help the skin to heal.
- Homeopathic Thiosinaminum and the cell salt Silicea helps to dissolve scar tissue.
Q. How long should I use the Scars Cream for? As long as you need to – you should use it for a good month. If you see noticeable improvements in that time you should continue until those improvement cease. Some tough, old scars take 2-3 months or more to heal.
Q. I have a lumpy scar that is 20 (or 30 or 40) years old. Is it worth trying the Scars Cream? Absolutely. Even old acne scars and old surgical scars are diminishing with this cream.
Q. Can I put the cream on a wound that is still healing?
A. Once the wound itself has healed over you can apply the Scars Cream. Don’t put it on an open wound as it can irritate it.
Q. Can using the cream help to prevent scarring?
A. No it cannot. You’ll need to consult a homeopathic practitioner for constitutional treatment if your body has a tendency to heal poorly and/or to form keloids after injury or surgery.
Q. Can your Scars Cream help with my teenage daughter’s stretch marks on her legs and hips?
A. Many people have found it to be helpful for stretch marks including pregnant and newly delivered women, teenagers and people of any age who have had sudden weight gains and developed stretch marks as a result.
Q. What about acne scars?
A. If there are lumps from scar tissue then yes it can help.
Q. How many 'squirts' are there in each tube?
A. There are approximately 120 full 'squirts' in each tube - enough for many months use.

"Dear Miranda, I just had to share with you my experience with your scar cream. I recently started with acupuncture. On my first visit, before we actually began, the doctor assessed my abdomen around my c-section scars and told me I would need a number of treatments to begin breaking up the scar tissue. That night I started the scar cream and when I went back 1 1/2 weeks later to have my first acupuncture session, the doctor couldn't believe how much scar tissue had been broken up by your cream! Yours truly!"
"I am writing to tell you how pleased I’ve been with the results of using your scar cream. Having grown up in southern California and having had far too much exposure to the sun by the time I was in my 20’s, I’ve been living through a series of basal cell excisions at the hands of an excellent dermatologist in Hanover, NH. While he is most skilled in removal of these sun spots from my face (primarily my forehead). I applied the cream each evening beginning ten days after the surgery (and about three days after removal of the sutures) and continued using it for about four weeks. Although I could certainly have continued to use it, I stopped simply because the fading of the scar(s) was so dramatic. Your scar cream has worked wonders as well, so I wanted to let you know and to say “many thanks!”

"I must tell you I am so pleased with the creams I recently purchased from you. The Scar cream is doing remarkably with a wide scar on my mother's arm."
b "I had a horrid scar after surgery and radiation treatments. There was so much scar tissue the skin was all puckered and tight – so much so I had lots of pain. After just 3 weeks of using the scar cream twice a day I have no more pain and the lumps and constrictions are reduced by at least 60%. The angry redness of the scar itself is fading also."
"My kids have been using your Scars Cream for their acne and it's been working great. I thought you might like to know!"

“Your Scars Cream was a miracle after my squamous carcinoma surgery. My doctor had to dig out a huge area in my neck, under my chin. He was surprised at how deep and widespread the cancer had spread underneath. I had a 6” long, deep, ugly lumpy scar that felt like rope. There was a lot of numbness and pulling from all the stitches and stretched tissues. He said was the best he could do under the circumstances. Once the stitches were out I used Castro’s Scars Cream twice daily and the soreness quickly disappeared. After a couple of weeks the lumps were half the size and after a month the scar was disappearing fast. The skin is soft and supple now and the scar barely visible. My doctor could hardly believe his eyes at my follow up appointment.”
