As frustrating a condition as these fungal infections can be, there is now a viable natural remedy. Recent studies have indicated that Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus Oil, --both active ingredients in Defense Soap-- have incredible antifungal and antibacterial properties.
"Several prestigious medical institutions have acknowledged that these natural ingredients are important antifungal and antiviral agents -- Sloan-Kettering and The Mayo Clinic -- just to name two," says Guy Sako, owner of Defense Soap -- a major supplier of natural skin hygiene products to Amateur Wrestling and the Mixed Martial Arts communities.
The Tea Tree Oil in Defense Soap™ contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that is known to be responsible for most of tea tree oil's antimicrobial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil has been thought to kill the skin-dwelling bacteria and fungus that are involved in causing athlete's foot and jock itch.
Defense Soap added Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil to its products because of its anti-inflammatory and analgesic qualities as a topically applied ingredient. Eucalyptus oil is used in many personal hygiene products but especially for its antimicrobial properties in soaps. Eucalyptus oil is recognized by The Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS), which is the official compendium for Homeopathic Drugs in the U.S. HPUS is recognized and monitored by the FDA
Along with the more serious skin diseases such as MRSA, Staph, and Ringworm, Tinea Pedis - (athlete's foot) and Tinea Cruris (jock itch) thrive in locker rooms and among personal items such as towels, and clothing. The professional athlete -- and now general consumers-- are discovering that by protecting themselves against these skin diseases with natural products, like Defense Soap, they're inadvertently causing Jock itch and Athletes Foot to disappear.
The implications for athletes and consumers alike are staggering. According to reports published by Pharmalicensing.com US consumers spent over 2 billion dollars on anti-infectives last year. A large portion of that going to Antifungals such as Jock-Itch Products, Vaginal Yeast Infection Products, Athlete's Foot Products.
Imagine the immense savings consumers could reap on these treatments simply changing their soap.
