What is Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream?

In today’s review we will look at Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream. Ringworm is caused by various types of fungus which are similar to those that cause athlete’s foot. That is why ringworm can be treated by the same product that treats athlete’s foot. Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream is an odorless cream which is clinically proven to treat althlete’s foot, or in this case ringworm, and also prevent it from recurring if used daily.

Ingredients & How It Works

  • Tolnaftate
  • Ceteth-20
  • Cetostearyl alcohol
  • Chlorocresol
  • Mineral oil
  • Propylene glycol
  • Purified water

  • White petrolatum

The only active ingredient found in Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream is 1% Tolnaftate which contains anti-fungal properties. A combination of all the ingredients is claimed to be used for the effective relief of itching, cracking, and burning. 25% concentrated Undecylenic Acid is lacking from the ingredient list and may cause ineffectiveness of Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream.

Daily Serving

The manufacturer recommends washing the affected area and drying it thoroughly. Apply a thin layer of Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream twice a day, preferably morning and evening. Continue this process for 4 weeks. It is important to take note that if the symptoms disappear it does not necessarily mean you have been cured as the fungus might have not been killed yet and can cause a new outbreak. If there is no improvement after 4 weeks or if irritation occurs, stop the use of Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream and consult a healthcare professional. Intended for external use only.

Our Review Summary of Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream

There are a few positive aspects about Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream. There is clear information about how to use the product and it can be purchased online as well as in retail stores. There are however also a few negative aspects about this product. It does not contain an important anti-fungal agent, Undecylenic Acid. This could indicate that the product may be ineffective. Another concern is that there is no evidence of a money-back guarantee for Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream. With no guarantee, customers are unable to return a product if it does not show results. This puts the risk on the customer which may lead them to purchasing a product from a manufacturer who offers a guarantee. Due to these negative aspects, we are unable to recommend Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Cream.
