Leveraging patented technology and the highest quality, proven ingredients, Footlogix® offers the best pedicure products for healthy feet.
We all want healthy, soft, attractive and pain-free feet. And in response, you will find the foot care market flooded with professional and consumer pedicure products that promise amazing results. However, many foot care products simply don’t deliver the required and needed results. Indeed, it can be difficult and frustrating to find a pedicure product that actually lives up to its claims and your expectations.
What makes a pedicure product effective? The best pedicure products for healthy feet have a few things in common. An effective pedicure product should deliver quality ingredients into the skin, enhance the skin’s functions, add moisture to the epidermis, and not seal the skin with occlusive oils.
How do you know if a spa or at-home pedicure product fits the bill? We can help! Whether you’re a licensed foot care professional looking for superior spa foot care products to deliver pedicures in your salon, or you’re a do-it-yourselfer maintaining your feet at home, here’s what you need to know to choose the absolute best pedicure products for healthy feet.
INGREDIENTS IN THE BEST PEDICURE PRODUCTS
Not all ingredients are created equal. As a building block of effective foot care, the ingredients used in products absolutely matter. Most mass market foot care products and treatments often contain dehydrating salts and acids, lower concentrations of active ingredients and/or aggressive ingredients that must be washed off. While these products may feel good, the results are usually short term. The best spa and at-home pedicure products use superior, professional ingredients and technology that make a big difference in the quality of a pedicure service.
The Footlogix® line is the world’s first and only pediceutical® foot care line. Footlogix® products provide transformational results by delivering highly concentrated, non-aggressive ingredients that are safe for all skin types—even for people with diabetes. The Footlogix® home care line also offers equally effective and fast-acting treatments that can be used at home.
A sample of the high-quality Ingredients found in Footlogix® formulations include:
Urea is one of the key ingredients in the majority of Footlogix® products. It is an important component of the body’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). A true humectant and a hygroscopic compound, urea has the ability to attract and retain moisture in the skin (something that most people lack, especially as we mature). Urea “unpacks” hard dry skin cells and with water binding properties, keeps the skin soft and supple; one of the reasons why the results of a single Footlogix pedicure last for weeks.
Clotrimazole is a broad-spectrum antifungal agent having both “fungistatic” (inhibiting growth of fungus) and “fungicidal” (causing elimination of the fungus) properties. It acts primarily by damaging the permeability barrier in the cell membrane of the fungus, thus leading to elimination of the fungus. Its action on the skin is both quick and effective. On the nail, continuous application until the nail has grown out, not only kills existing fungi, but also inhibits further growth of fungi while the nail grows. Clotrimazole has proven effective against tinea pedis (athlete’s foot) and trichophyton organisms that cause onychomycosis (toenail fungus). Clotrimazole is present in Footlogix® Peeling Skin Formula, Rough Skin Formula and Anti-Fungal Nail Tincture.
Ubiquinone is also known as coenzyme Q10. It is a potent antioxidant compound that helps to protect cells against aging and damage. Ubiquinone is vital for cellular energy production and skin anti-aging. Along with Urea, it is able to penetrate into the epidermis of the skin.
Spiraleen® is a unique anti-microbial concentrate exclusive to Footlogix®. It is a bioactive microalgae extract specifically designed to deliver optimal levels of cell protection, regeneration and collagen synthesis to the skin, and is also effective on the toenails. Spiraleen® works by inhibiting invasive germs with its highly efficacious anti-microbial properties resulting in a stronger skin barrier for healthy, happy feet.
Known simply as aloe, it is well-known for its wound-healing properties. In Footlogix® products, it helps soothe and calm dry, sensitive skin while reducing flaking and restoring suppleness. This ingredient is a wonderful addition to dry skin formulas for the feet.
VITAMIN E TOCOPHERYL ACETATE
Scientifically named tocopheryl acetate, vitamin E, is a well-known antioxidant and a skin strengthener. It is a soothing agent as it seals in moisture, helping to soften and hydrate the skin. As a natural skin-conditioning agent, this ingredient is great when added into cuticle conditioners and massage formulas.
SUNFLOWER SEED OIL
Sunflower seed oil is rich in linoleic acid that has excellent transcutaneous absorption. It thus helps maintain the skin barrier and decreases trans-epidermal water loss. Another great ingredient that is used in cuticle and skin conditioners, and dry skin formulas of Footlogix foot care products.
OTHER KEY INGREDIENTS
Depending on the formula, Footlogix® products contain a variety of additional key ingredients to deliver the best pedicure results. Ingredients such as avocado oil, panthenol, rosemary, sage, and essential oils are also present in Footlogix products. Each one works in a different way to help alleviate specific conditions and deliver healthy and happy feet.
THE BEST FOOT CARE FORMULATIONS
While a particular product may contain the ingredients discussed above, the combination of ingredients and how the product is formulated is also important. Even a very high-quality ingredient can be ineffective if it’s unable to penetrate the skin to target and fix common foot issues. The best foot care products are formulated with technology, such as the Footlogix® Dermal Infusion Technology, to deliver ingredients deeply into the skin without any side effects.
What is Footlogix® Dermal Infusion Technology? It is a delivery system that carries active ingredients past the Stratum Corneum into the layers of the epidermis, helping to restore the health of the skin. This technology ensures that the Footlogix® active ingredients penetrate into the layers of the epidermis and reach the targeted areas. With no greasy outer layer to occlude it, the skin is hydrated and retains its ability to function normally, resulting in healthy feet. It’s a patented, two-step technology that combines a clinically-developed balance of water and natural lipids into a complex mousse formulation to assist in the water retention function of skin. It not only aids in the delivery of highly active, premium quality ingredients into all layers of the epidermis; it also assists in forming a breathable, semi-permeable barrier on the skin’s most outer surface.
With this exclusive technology, Footlogix® pedicure products have the ability to repair the epidermis and keep it functioning naturally. It also allows the skin to be protected against irritants as well as other invaders that compromise healthy skin. The skin now has less Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) allowing it to stay naturally hydrated and healthy.
