Foot Care

Keep on walking

Feet are a vital part of the human body. It is important to look after them, both to ensure personal well-being and to keep them healthy for activities like walking or running. If foot diseases occur, they can be very unpleasant. Those caused by microorganisms are mainly fungal infections (dermatomycosis) caused by dermatophytes such as Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton rubrum or Epidermophyton floccosum. Tinea pedis, more commonly known as athlete’s foot, belongs to the most frequent fungal diseases with an incidence rate of more than 10% of the population. Due to its strong activity against dermatophytes and long-lasting antimicrobial efficacy as well as its skin-soothing activity, Triclosan is an excellent product for use in the prevention of fungal skin infections.
