Onychomycosis may affect one or more toenails and/or fingernails and most often involves the great toenail or the little toenail. It can present in one or several different patterns:
Tinea unguium often results from untreated tinea pedis (feet) or tinea manuum (hand). It may follow after an injury to the nail. Candida infection of the nail plate generally results from paronychia and starts near the nail fold (the cuticle). The nail fold is then swollen and red, lifted off the nail plate. White, yellow, green or black marks may appear on the nearby nail and spread. The nail may lift off its bed and is tender if you press on it. Mould infections are usually indistinguishable from tinea unguium.
Onychonil, with it’s unique formulation, is very effective when used in combination with the oral treatment for onychomycosis. Urea present in the formulation works well to soften and gently dissolve the intercellular matrix of the nail plate, which can aid in debridement. Salicylic acid reduces the nail mass and piroctone olamine is antifungal. This combination works well to give visible results even from the early days of application and reduces the time to cure onychomycosis to it’s half and synergizes the effect of oral antifungals.
There are thousands of nail treatments (for onychomycosis) already on the market. You may even see products that contain the same active ingredients as onychonil. So what makes Onychonil’s formula so unique? Simply put; RESEARCH! In order to make use of the true power of the active ingredients, great care must be taken when making the product. Light and air can easily deteriorate substances like Salicylic acid and Piroctone olamine. Other ingredients must be carefully stored in vacuum desiccators in order to preserve their shelf life. Furthermore, the Jenpharm team takes great effort to micronize and filter all of the active ingredients and extracts for superior efficiency.
When manufacturing a skincare product, the base ingredients are just as important as the active ones. It is important to choose proper carriers to ensure that the active ingredients are absorbed deeply into the skin. It is also advised to include effective preservatives and humectants to ensure minimal skin irritation. The use of special base ingredients and high quality actives is what brings out the true effectiveness of the onychonil’s formula and sets us apart from other skincare players in the market.
