“WaxVac” is Wacked, But It’s FDA approved!

Posted in Ear Candle Company Reviews at 7:59 pm by Administrator

So, I saw an infomercial the other night on the “WaxVac”.   According to their commercial and website the WaxVac  “draws dirt particles and moisture out of your ears”.  

Why do they call it a “Wax Vac” when it doesn’t remove wax?

Here’s a link to the website so you can investigate it yourself, but BE WARNED, this product is another FDA APPROVED  mistake.

Of course the makers tout the dangers of cotton swabs and ear candles in favor of their product, but when you remember that the FDA, AMA and other ear candle antagonists have told us repeatedly that “the vacuum needed to remove ear wax would be dangerous and cause damage to the ear drum”, it leaves the potential customer in wonder how “Wax Vac” is safer than an ear candle?

Somebody is making money, paying off the FDA and will consider any lawsuits as “advertising costs”. . . .

On the flip side, there are a few websites who have already collected complaints about the company.  I’ve listed those below.  Interesting how you don’t see these kinds of complaints about cotton swabs or ear candles. . . .

Wax on, Wax off. . . you be the judge.  As for the Ear Candle Lady, I’m getting ready to treat the family to a group ear candling session for Thanksgiving!

    Since it’s FDA “approved” it’s considered safe, BUT totally ineffective unless you have a couple of drops of water in your ear, which a q-tip will absorb for less than a penny (USD) and the wax vac is around $10. It’s a gimmick AND it says on the box that it does NOT remove wax from the ear!
