Effect of acetic acid
It is of natural effectiveness due to the acetic acid. It changes the environment and creates an unfriendly acidic environment for fungal growth (pH<4). This prevents the dermatophytes from multiplying.
Due to the TransActive Penetration technology, Excilor’s solution penetrates deep into the nail, making additional filing unnecessary.
Conclusion about Excilor against nail fungus
The acetic acid in Excilor products against nail fungus creates an environment unfriendly to fungi and thus inhibits the spread of the fungus.
The effect is purely physical.
There are no known resistances, and nourishing ingredients support the nail build-up.
The treatment of nail fungus can be backed by antifungal drugs, i.e., drugs that kill the fungus.
Various preparations, such as nail polish or cream, are available for this purpose.

Directions for the use of Excilor
The affected nail should be thoroughly cleaned before treatment, and any cosmetic nail polish should be removed with a nail polish remover.
The solution is generously applied to the entire nail and the underside of the nail edge using the applicator or a pen. After that, it takes about 1-2 minutes for the product to be absorbed. After that, socks and shoes can be put on.
