The following is a review of Aftum, a series of products designed to relieve pain and speed up the healing process of mouth ulcers and canker sores. The manufacturer claims that this Hyaluronic Acid-based product range provides immediate relief. The goal of these products is to promote muscle reparation and healing, prevent inflammation, and reduce scarring. This review will analyze the factors contributing to the products abilities to deliver these claims and determine whether you should consider purchasing it.
This product range includes an Oral Gel, Spray, Mouthwash, and Film with varying concentrations of the main active ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is known for its many skin health benefits. It is a clinically proven ingredient for alleviating wounds, burns, and skin ulcers. It does not contain harmful chemicals and therefore is not known to have any negative side effects. The different forms of application are used to coat the ulcers in a protective film that prevent bacteria from promoting infection. The use of Hyaluronic Acid in these products may work to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed up the healing process. While it is positive to find these ingredients in the formulas, it alone cannot form as a total-care remedy for canker sores. Canker sores are largely attributed to a Vitamin B12 deficiency. There are several competitor products that contain sufficient doses of Vitamin B12 to provide superior relief. Vitamin B12 should be considered when searching for an optimal canker sore preventing formula.
The manufacturer’s website does not provide dosage instructions on how to use these products for best results. The product packaging would need to be assessed as each will require a different application method. Each application method supplies a different quantity of the main active ingredient. The most potent product in the range provides 600mg of Hyaluronic Acid. This is a sufficient amount, however, the lack of Vitamin B12 renders this dosage less effective than alternative products on the market.
These products cannot be purchased through the manufacturer’s website. They are available from third-party sites such as Amazon. The Aftum Oral Gel can be found here for $19.76 and Aftaspray retails here for $20. As the manufacturer has not provided dosage instructions, we cannot clearly determine the lifespan of each product. This means that you may need to frequently purchase them for improved results. This could become a costly endeavor.
The manufacturer has not clearly stipulated a money-back guarantee to support product purchases. This is very concerning as it suggests that they are skeptical of its ability to perform as intended. Guarantees depend on the third-party sites where the product is purchased and these will vary. Amazon offers a guarantee on unopened products but this does not allow customers to test efficacy. There are insufficient customer reviews for us to accurately ascertain whether or not this product lives up to claims.
Aftum & Aftaspray Review – Conclusion
This product contains an optimal dosage of its key active ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid. This may prove beneficial in preventing canker sores. However, the product lacks Vitamin B12 which is a highly effective ingredient common to competing products. The lack of guarantee does not bode well for the efficacy of this product. Finally, insufficient reviews mean that we cannot gauge the assured effectiveness of this product. There are more reliable options on the market and we recommend looking into them.
