For over 50 years, the FDA has approved the use of tolnaftate for the treatment of athlete’s foot and ringworm. Tolnaftate is the active ingredient in Formula 3® Antifungal.The treatment is effective as a result of Tetra’s invention of oil-soluble tolnaftate. Formula 3® was the first product available to patients utilizing this formulation which includes
natural jojoba oil. The jojoba oil is quickly absorbed by the skin, which delivers the tolnaftate directly to the infected area.Because jojoba is virtually identical to sebum — the oil people’s skin produces naturally– the tolnaftate in Formula 3® Antifungal quickly and effectively penetrates the skin, speeding healing to the infected areas.In fact, Formula 3® Antifungal is so effective, that it’s received the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Approval.For best results, we recommend you apply fast-acting, quick-absorbing Formula 3® Antifungal after showering, when the skin has the greatest capacity for absorption. (See instructions below). Typically, your bottle of Formula 3® Antifungal will last between three and six months, making it an exceptional value.
Although Formula 3® Antifungal was developed to assist in healing, it may not be for everyone. Because tolnaftate has a pregnancy rating of Category C, you should consult your physician before using if you are pregnant. What’s more, the natural oils in Formula 3® Antifungal condition the skin and do not contain essential oils, so there is typically no allergic reaction to the formula. However, some with hypersensitive skin may experience redness and/or itching. If this occurs, stop treatment and contact your physician.
Formula 3® is Approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association.
