What is Hongo Cura Anti-Fungal Ointment?
This is a review on Hongo Cura, a brand that offers relief from the burning itch of athlete’s foot with 2 types of deliveries: an ointment and a spray. The ointment is claimed to offer soothing and long-lasting relief, while the spray provides a convenient application that is both easy and mess-free. The following information will examine the ingredients, dosage, pricing, and guarantee; giving customers complete product information so that you can make an informed decision.
- Cream: 5% undecylenic acid, 20% zinc undecylenate
- Spray: 25% undecylenic acid
Both Hongo Cura products include undecylenic acid, a popular ingredient used to decrease and eliminate fungus growth, supporting the relief of athlete’s foot infections while preventing reinfection in the future. The market standard concentration for this ingredient is 25%, leaving the ointment severely lacking in the effective concentration of this fungus-fighting ingredient. Furthermore, zinc undecylenate is known to primarily relieve the symptoms of athlete’s foot – such as itching and burning – and not for targeting the fungal infection itself. This makes the cream application unlikely to be as effective as completing products the market. The spay version has the required amount of undecylenic acid but appears to be lacking ingredients that will nourish the skin and thus promote faster recovery. There is no mention if this product is all-natural, or if it’s manufacture abided to strict GMP quality guidelines.
To use this product for athlete’s foot, begin by cleaning and drying the affected area thoroughly. If using the cream, apply a thin layer of ointment onto the affected area: or if using the spray, spray the affected area as much as needed. These applications should be done both in the morning and evening every day for 4 weeks. This is quite an extensive period, which may be influenced by the lack of key active and nourishing ingredients; other products on the market have been known to be more efficient, acting over a shorter amount of time. There is no mention if these products can or should be used together. It is advised that customers consult a physician if there is no improvement after 4 weeks of use, or if irritation occurs. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult a doctor before use.
What is the Cost?
These Hongo Cura athlete’s foot products can be purchased from third-party sites. For a 28g tube or a 60mg spray bottle – customers can expect to pay the same price: $14.99. There is no indication of package deals or discounts available. While these products may be relatively affordable, there is no indication of how long each product will last when it is used according to the manufacturer’s instructions. These cumulated costs may become expensive over time with underwhelming results.
There is no manufacturer’s guarantee available on the product page, which is concerning as it suggests even the manufacturer is not confident in the products efficacy and ability to fulfill its claims. There are also limited product reviews which prevent us from further commenting on the effectiveness of this product.
Our Final Review of Hongo Cura Anti-Fungal Ointment & Spray
Hongo Cura Anti-fungal ointment and spray offer various benefits to the customer, with product formulas that have key ingredients known for relieving fungal infections as well as the associated symptoms of athlete’s foot. However, both products seem to be lacking ingredients that would ensure optimal efficacy; such as the correct dosage of undecylenic acid in the cream and no inclusion of skin-nourishing ingredients in the spray. Furthermore, there is no GMP certification to ensure quality manufacture. There is also no manufacturer guarantee and limited customer reviews which does not provide us with much confidence in the efficacy of this product. In saying so, we do not recommend these products as worthy of your purchase.
