What is Curaderm BEC5?

Curaderm BEC5 is a topical skin cream containing solasodine glycosides (BEC). Solasodine Glycosides are found in eggplants and other plants. Curaderm is also known as Eggplant Cream or BEC5 Cream. Dr. Bill Cham developed it after the discovery of BEC's unique properties.

Curaderm cream was originally developed in Queensland Australia by Dr. Bill Cham. Bill had originally come across a farmer who used the Devils Apple on his cattle. Intrigued by what he was told, he set about to perform years of research into the unique properties of the glycoalkaloids found in eggplants. This led to the production of a non-toxic cream that has since been used worldwide.

The cream comes in a 20ml tube with a free booklet that contains useful information about the product and various case studies and reports.

Curaderm Ingredients:

  • Solasodine Glycosides (BEC) 0.005%
  • Urea 5%
  • Salicylic Acid 10%

What does Curaderm BEC5 do?

The manufacturer suggests that the BEC compounds can penetrate the target site and cause a rupturing of certain types of skin cells, enabling new healthy skin to grow in place. The process can cause a slight inflammation of the area during the process.

Curaderm BEC5 Uses

Curaderm BEC5 has been used for basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas as well as the benign tumors, such as keratoses and keratoacanthomas.

Do not attempt to purchase or use this product without appropriate medical advice and do not use it for the purposes of treating a condition, illness or disease unless otherwise instructed by your treating physician.

How to use Curaderm

Follow all information given by your health professional carefully. They may be slightly different from the information contained in this leaflet. If you do not understand the directions for use ask your health professional for help.

BEC5 is used only on external areas of the skin. Do not apply the cream to unaffected areas. Areas near the eyes or lips should be applied very carefully. Curaderm BEC5 should be used at least twice daily. In some cases you may need to use it more frequently, even up to 10 times per day. Make sure the affected area is always covered with dressing such as a micro pore or you risk the area being dried out. Apply to the area until new skin has re-grown.

Before each application

  1. Apply an antiseptic solution to cleanse the skin followed by cleaning and rinsing with running water. This is done to remove dead cells that could obstruct the penetration of Curaderm BEC5 to the affected area.
  2. Dry the area well.
  3. Apply a thick layer of Curaderm cream across the affected area
  4. Cover with a micro pore dressing and then wash your hands.

How much Curaderm to apply

Between 0.1 and 0.5g of cream may be required for each application and this is dependent on the size of the area. Curaderm application should not exceed a total of 25cm squared and if you need to apply to a larger area then this need to be done with extra care.

When to use Curaderm

When using Curaderm there will be some redness and swelling. After the application, you may feel a tingling sensation and some pain at the target site for 30 to 60 minutes. This is a normal reaction and indicates the cream is working as intended.

If you use too much cream

Wipe away any excess making sure no residual cream is left on unaffected areas.

If you experience unwanted effects

Seek your doctor's advice if you have prolonged swelling, pain or redness that is excessive or distressing. If there are any other unwanted effects or allergic reactions then discuss these with your doctor.

What ingredients does Curaderm contain?

Curaderm cream (Bec5) contains an active ingredient called Solasodine Glycosides (BEC) from egg plants as well as Salicylic Acid and Urea. Salicylic Acid (Aspirin) and Urea can cause irritation of the skin (tingling). Let your health professional know if you are allergic to Aspirin or eggplant.

What to expect when using Curaderm?

In the beginning the affected area can experience reddening and look like a wound. The area may appear worse than before you started. This is the process of the BEC removing the damaged cells, and not all are visible to the naked eye. The next stage is the healing stage where by normal skin is regrown.

How long do you use the cream for?

The typical duration of around 1 - 12 weeks. The total time taken depends on a few factors such as the size of the area, the person's age, sensitivity and the number of applications per day. Once the swelling in the area stops, and the skin looks normal, you can then stop using the cream, allowing the redness to fade. In some cases the length of application will need to be longer to ensure there is no re-occurrence. If you have doubts, then it's better to keep applying for a longer period of time, even until new skin has started to grow back.

How long does Curaderm cream last?

It can last up to 5 years if kept in the right conditions, i.e. the fridge door.

What temperature can it be stored in?

Its best kept under 25 degrees Celcius and to extend the shelf life, it can be stored in the fridge.

Curaderm Can Help Save Your Skin!
Information provided with the product is correct. You need to be patient and follow instructions. After applying the cream, do not neglect covering it with tape, as instructed. This is not an optional will make a difference in the result. Get the blue tape for sensitive skin. The cheaper kinds are too sticky and leave a residue on the skin. You will notice results quite quickly, but a complete cure of large areas will take time. Many weeks. But it works. It will deal with actinic keratoses and other conditions, both less serious and more serious. It is costly, but it will work where the cheaper ones will not. I recommend BEC5 Curaderm and will continue to use it as long as I need it, and have suggested it to others as well.

I've been using this cream for over 2 years as I have a large BCC on my neck that I've had for over 30 years. Hence it is also quite deep. It has created quite a large crater like depression, but it has also searched out more spots near it and has reduced the BCC by over half. I was recommended to a plastic surgeon who wanted to have it removed. This involved a skin graft, and possible damage to the nerve which would leave me with a dropped shoulder, tightening of the neck, and scarring in a number of places. Curaderm is a much better option, and still now continues to find and cure more small spots nearby.  An awesome product!

Recommended by a Friend and It Works!
I purchased this cream on the recommendation of a friend who used it to treat a basal skin cancer. I am near the end of treating a basal on my nose and so far so good.  It hasn't even been 3 weeks and already the area where the cancer existed is beginning to heal over.  I did a lot of research  before buying this cream.  My experience follows the same path that has been described by many other users except that it has worked much quicker for me.  Only 3 weeks instead of 8.

great service
i ordered BEC5 Curaderm product..i rang customer service 2 weeks later as the parcel still hadn't arrived..we dicovered that the first parcel had a typo in the address and the Post office seemed to have lost it.  I asked customer service to send me a second parcel..and if the first parcel arrived I'd return it to them..they were most considerate throughout this process and even paid for my postage for returning second parcel. I have been very happy with the service they provided.

This product has been a life-saver
This product has been a life-saver.  I have had 4 squamous cell cancers removed with surgery and skin grafts.  They started as itchy red spots.
I did not know at the time how these cancers start.  Since then I have developed other itchy patches on my legs and have used Curaderm to treat them.  This treatment has worked really well for me and is far superior to the Efudix which was previously medically prescribed and which made me ill.  Curaderm does create redness and itchiness as it heals but leaves lovely clean skin afterwards.

Doctors should know about this cream which would prevent further suffering by patients like me.  I just wish I had known about it sooner.

Works exactly as claimed

For skin cancers this product works brilliantly. Doesn't affect normal skin only skin that has a cancerous or precancerous growth.

If you've always wondered about that unusual area of the skin that feels wrong or highly pigmented mole... this is a simple way to find out if it's got a problem or not. If it doesn't react after a few applications it's probably not a problem.

It's relatively inexpensive and despite the tube being quite small... there's enough in there to treat quite a large area repeatedly. It's unlikely that you'll need more than one tube of Curaderm unless you're using a lot of it... or have an unusually large number of spots you need to treat.

Keep treating the area for a while after it has appeared to heal... as sometimes people stop a bit too soon.

This treatment has quite a lot of research demonstrating efficacy. Bill Cham has also written a book. If you want a detailed summary of the work read the book. The book includes a list of publications... which is very handy... as otherwise it can be quite hard to find them.

This approach is specific to skin cancers. Bill says there is no reason why it wouldn't work on internal cancers... but you would need a different delivery method... which he hasn't developed.

Do expect the area being treated to first break down... then heal up. Healing is minus scarring in most cases... so it's much gentler than most alternatives.

Very happy with this product. Wish more products worked this well.
