Q. I have cracked skin on my heels, will this help?
A. We do not recommend this for cracked skin. You should use N2S™ Salve, which was developed specifically for cracked skin and ulceration. Once this is treated, you can use Advanced Callus Reducer to improve the tone and texture of the skin.
Q. How does this help encrusted nails?
A. Thickened encrusted nails are due to a fungus. Although this product is not anti-fungal, it does help to soften the tissue and the nail bed. This is critical in helping medications penetrate. Most medications are either ointments and typically cannot penetrate this area or they are solutions with no vehicle to get them deep into the problem area. By properly treating the thickened encrusted nail bed, you can get greater efficacy from your medication.
Q. Why is this product more effective than other products in killing germs and bacteria?
A. Most antibacterial soaps contain Triclosan or Ethyl Alcohol. Triclosan is not FDA approved as an antiseptic for first aid use because it is not effective in killing germs and bacteria. N2S™ Antibacterial Cleanser contains Benzethonium Chloride, which is approved by the FDA and is the strongest antibacterial agent for a kill rate of 99.999%; Ethyl Alcohol is extremely drying and can irritate the skin and eventually cause infection. Companies do not typically tell you what bacteria are being killed.
