Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream Guarantee

There is no guarantee offered with Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream. With the risk of having your condition worsened by the manufacturers choice in ingredients, not offering a guarantee does not help potential customers feel driven to purchase the cream.


The Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream may help with temporary relief from hemorrhoidal symptoms, however the ingredients are not clinically proven, and can even cause increased discomfort. With the risk of worsened condition, to not offer a guarantee of any kind is not a good business move.
