This review examines Lotrimin AF Deodorant Powder. We look at the ingredients, dosage, guarantee as well as the price to see whether or not this product lives up to its manufacturer’s claims. This deodorizing spray claims to treat the pesky symptoms which those suffering from ringworm, jock itch and athlete’s foot undergo, such as scaling, burning, itching and cracking feet. The product is available in three variations such as a cream, an applicable liquid, a spray and deodorizing spray, and in this review, we focus on the deodorizing spray.
Miconazole Nitrate is utilized for its antifungal properties. It kills the fungus and stops further infection, however, at a concentration of only 2% we wonder just how effective this product might be. Most leading brands have made use of Undecylenic Acid at a concentration of no less than 25% as it has been clinically proven to kill fungal infections.
Other active ingredients could have been added to this formulation in order to strengthen the blend such as Tea tree oil, Manuka Oil, and Camphor Oil.
- SD Alcohol 40-B (8% v/v)
- Stearalkonium Hectorite
We are concerned that sensitive skins might be vulnerable to the inactive ingredients, such as the SD alcohol or the fragrance which has been added.
This product is only intended to be used externally, contact with eyes, ingestion, and inhalation should be avoided at all costs (as these incidents could lead to death). The contents of this product are flammable and should not be used near a fire, near any source of heat or while smoking and it should be stored in a place between 68° to 77°F.
Apply the spray in the morning and evening. The can should be well-shaken and then sprayed thinly onto the area (especially between the toes) after thoroughly washing and drying it. Jock-itch sufferers are to use this product daily for 2 weeks, whereas athlete’s foot and ringworm sufferers are to use daily for four weeks. A medical practitioner should be consulted if the condition persists.
The manufacturer encourages the wear of shoes which ventilate the feet, as well as not wearing the same pair of socks and shoes for longer than a full day. Children under the age of 2 should only use this product under the supervision of a medical practitioner. A medical practitioner should be informed and use is to be discontinued if any irritation is experienced.
One 4.06 oz powder spray can is available for online sale through various third-party retailers at a price of ranging between $6.44 and $11.49. The manufacturer’s website seems to be offering a discount, too.
After thorough research, no guarantee was found. This is certainly an issue of concern as most leading brands protect their customers with a 365-day 100% guarantee.
Lotrimin AF Review – Conclusion
After closely examining Lotrimin Athlete’s Foot Deodorant Powder Review Spray in our review, we think that this product introduces a smart concept of being a “spray-on” powder. We also find it to be affordable, however, by saying that, the product includes many potentially harmful inactive ingredients which enable this concept. We are also perturbed by the fact that no guarantee or returns policy is mentioned, which leads us to question if a customer is actually taking a risk when purchasing this product.
