Athletol - Does It Work?-Review

What is Athletol?

The fungal misery of athlete’s foot, the itching and burning and cracked skin, is unfortunately a common condition Athletol is a topical solution applied directly to the affected area to help relieve and, according to the manufacturer, even reduce the likelihood of recurrence of athlete’s foot It is said to quickly reduce the symptoms noted above as well as root out the fungus by infiltrating deep into the skin layers It is also claimed to rehydrate the skin and to provide important vitamins that will help the skin repair more quickly The formulation is based on ingredients that have been shown, over years of research, to be effective in combating athlete’s foot. 

It sounds like a product worth taking into consideration, so we subjected it to our review process, the details and results of which we present below.

Ingredients & How It Works

  • Undecylenic Acid (25% USP)
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Aloe Barbadensis
  • Juglans Nigra
  • Propolis
  • Essential Oil Blend
  • Tocopheryl Acetate
  • Menthol
  • Camphor
  • Eugenia Caryophyllus
  • Lavender Oil
  • Manuka Oil

The “go to” ingredient in Athletol is Undecylenic acid. This is a pretty common approach as this fatty acid inhibits the growth of fungal infections like athlete’s foot and jock itch. What differentiates Athletol is its other ingredients. Its Essential Oil Blend, a proprietary combination of oils, along with its Manuka Oil, is included for its antifungal properties. Juglans Nigra, Propolis, and Lavender Oil are antibacterials; the first two of these also help heal skin conditions while Propolis, in addition, reduces inflammation. Menthol and Eugenia Caryophyllus bring analgesic effects to the equation. The latter of these and Tea Tree Oil also act as antiseptics. Tocopheryl Acetate is, of course, Vitamin E but in a form that is said to be readily absorbed.

Daily Serving 

The usage instructions are to apply with the supplied applicator brush between two and four times per day. Note that if you experience a rash after starting to use, you should discontinue it.

The Cost 

Athletol is available for purchase from the website of the manufacturer. Each bottle contains 0.5 ounces or 15 ml. Individual bottles cost $49.95. If you buy a pair of bottles the price of each is reduced notably to $34.95. The “Intermediate Package” consists of four bottles at $27.95 each while six-pack comes in at $23.30 per unit.


Money-back guarantees, to our way of thinking, separate the contenders from the pretenders. Contenders believe in their product and in their customers’ right to good customer policies and provide a strong return/refund policy. Pretenders don’t. Athletol falls solidly within the contenders category with its 60-day money back guarantee which covers both used and unused product.

Our Review Summary of Athletol

There is no scarcity of athlete’s foot treatments on the market. Many, like Athletol, use Undecylenic Acid as the cornerstone of their formula. But Athletol takes it a step further with its addition of natural components to help relieve the symptoms and prevent the infection from coming back. Add to that the strong money-back guarantee and you have a product worth trying.
