Is thorough scrubbing with soap a safeguard against ringworm?
Unfortunately, the answer is no.
Harmful fungal organisms causing infections such as ringworm, jock itch, and athletes foot are becoming more and more of a health problem. These infections change the ecology of the skin. They can disrupt the delicate balance of the skin flora. When that happens, spreading the infection follows.
That’s why we created the Defense Antifungal Medicated Bar. It’s the first soap, for combat athletes, which directly circumvents the hazards and problems associated with mat grime and skin funk that can contribute to getting fungal infections. Defense Antifungal Medicated Bar contains 1% Tolnaftate, an FDA approved antifungal agent, plus the highest concentrations of naturopathic essential oils that's is technically possible to put in a bar of soap without degrading the quality. Moreover, though Defense Soap is not intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, treatment, or prevention of skin diseases — these essential oils have been clinically proven to have skin healing properties.
Defense Soap is a proven product and is endorsed for its extraordinary benefits by significant figures in combat sports. Defense Soap is used around the world by the world's best combat athletes.
Making Defense Soap an everyday part of your training regimen is the smartest way to stay clean — after you compete or train.
