Flexitol Foot Care Products Receive American Podiatric Medical Association Seal Of Approval
Boca Raton, FL (March 1st, 2010) – Eulactol USA Inc. announced today that 4 of its Flexitol branded products, Heel Balm, Anti-Fungal Liquid, Diabetic Foot Balm and Medicated Foot Cream have been awarded the prestigious American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Approval.
Flexitol products were awarded the well respected seal for foot care products that assist in the management of foot conditions such as dry, cracked heels, fungus and athlete’s foot. Flexitol Heel Balm, Diabetic Foot Balm and Medicated Foot Cream are suitable for ongoing maintenance and also for diabetic foot care; because they not only treat the condition, but also provide excellent hydration properties which help restore moisture back to the affected area. This is achieved by the presence of Urea in different concentrations, a substance that penetrates the skin easily and improves the degree of hydration by increasing the water uptake from the dermis level of the skin and enhances the stratum corneum water-binding capacity. (Loden 1996, Loden et al 2001, Jennings et al 1998). In addition, the Urea is combined with a concentrated emollient base to provide optimal moisturization and hydration.
Anti-Fungal Liquid is a maximum strength topical formula for the treatment of fungus and contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to soothe, moisturize and condition the skin.
Founded in 1912, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) is the leading resource for foot and ankle health information. It currently represents the majority of the 15,000 podiatrists in the USA and has 53 state component locations. All practicing APMA members are licensed by the state in which they practice podiatric medicine. For more information visit www.apma.org
The APMA Seal of Approval Program recognizes leading products that are considered beneficial to foot health and of significant value when used in a consistently applied program of daily foot care and regular professional treatment. The seal is awarded only after the Committee on Podiatric Seals, a standing committee of the APMA scientifically evaluates and determines whether the product allows normal foot function and promotes quality foot health.
