For over 50 years, the FDA has approved the use of tolnaftate for the treatment and prevention of athlete’s foot and ringworm. Tolnaftate is used in well over 70 products worldwide. These tolnaftate products, found at the pharmacy and sold online are suspensions of tolnaftate. Formula 3® is different, it is not a suspension.
The tolnaftate in Formula 3® is in-solution. Formula 3® was the first product available to patients utilizing Tetra’s patented technology which uses natural jojoba oil as the vehicle. Simply put, Tetra’s process makes it impossible to separate the tolnaftate from the jojoba oil. So, when the jojoba oil is quickly absorbed by the skin, the tolnaftate is delivered directly to the infected area right along with it!
