Smooth AF® Footcare

The only patented formula that goes beyond curing and preventing athlete’s foot.

We are focused on foot health. Smooth AF® is the only formula that goes beyond curing and preventing athlete’s foot to also clean, condition, and revitalize your feet while helping your skin heal and recover. Our unique alcohol-free towels are easy to use, yet incredibly effective. And because they contain no alcohol or parabens, just fresh scented skin-loving emollients, Smooth AF® is safe and effective to use every day.

Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) is a contagious, often reoccurring fungal infection. Various fungi can invade the skin and spread in warm, moist environments such as shoes and boots. Infections commonly begin between the toes, but the fungi can spread to the groin or underarms by touching the infected skin and other parts of the body, contaminated surfaces such as bathroom and shower floors, or materials such as bed sheets and towels.

Symptoms may include:

  • Itching
  • Cracking
  • Discomfort
  • Stinging
  • Burning
  • Inflammation
  • Scaling
  • Peeling

In the U.S., one out of every four people will suffer from athlete’s foot at some point in their life. Some podiatrists claim the number is even greater due to a group of people they refer to as “Silent Sufferers”. Silent sufferers are those who do not seek treatment or have tried various products to without success. They tend to live with the discomfort and embarrassment until their athlete’s foot worsens and they must seek medical attention. Left untreated, athlete’s foot can cause other health issues.

The human body is designed to sweat. Sweating helps cool our bodies. The average person has about 250,000 sweat glands in their feet producing nearly half a pint of sweat per day. That is almost SIX gallons of sweat every three months going into your shoes. Even more if you exercise, are going through puberty or menopause, hormonal changes, suffer from various health conditions, or a host of other issues. Problems can develop when feet sweat in a closed environment such as shoes and boots. Using foot care products with a high alcohol content can also contribute to skin drying out and trying to rehydrate itself by sweating more. Wearing clean socks, allowing your shoes to dry between uses, and keeping your feet clean, healthy, and protected daily with Smooth AF® will help you maintain proper foot health.
No. Soap and water are not enough to cure athlete’s foot. Athlete’s foot is a fungus that invades the skin and can be contagious. After washing your feet with soap and water, it is important to dry your feet thoroughly with a clean towel. However, to reduce the risk of cross-contamination we recommend washing the towel you used to dry your feet prior to letting someone else use the same towel after you used it to dry your infected feet. This will help reduce cross-contamination and the risk of spreading the fungus to other body parts or other people using the towel after drying your feet. Smooth AF® medicated wipes reduce the risk of cross-contamination and are fully compostable and biodegradable.
Too much alcohol (Ethanol) is the enemy of healthy skin. It is extremely damaging to skin—causing dryness, eroding the skin’s surface, deteriorating skin replenishment functions and affecting how skin rejuvenates itself. Any skin care product with greater than 3% alcohol breaks down the skin and prolongs the healing process. Smooth AF® contains zero alcohol and no parabens, unlike our competitors.
We eliminated the harsh chemicals, supercharged our formula with skin-loving emollients, added natural ingredients with properties that cleanse, are anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, and antibacterial and put it all into convenient, cost-effective slightly textured wipes. Smooth AF® gently soothes and heals the skin while forming a protective, non-greasy layer that quickly absorbs into the skin and leaves feet feeling and smelling fresh. Smooth AF®’s patented formula is a true scientific breakthrough. It is the first & only Total Foot Care formula that Cleans, Conditions, and Revitalizes the skin, as well as Cures & Prevents athlete’s foot using a clinically proven FDA Over-the-Counter active antifungal (Tolnaftate) drug without alcohol or parabens.
Feet are designed to sweat. Most FDA OTC antifungal foot care sprays and creams contain high levels of alcohol and other harmful chemicals that can dry out the skin. Unfortunately, they use old, outdated technology and are unable to formulate their products without these chemicals. They are re-active purchases and only used when absolutely necessary. Smooth AF® products are proactively formulated to heal the skin, to keep the skin clean, healthy, fresh, and protected everyday using only the best clinically proven FDA OTC active antifungal drug and supercharged with natural ingredients.
Rubbing a solution into the skin has a higher efficacy than spraying. By using a slightly textured wipe to massage Smooth AF®’s formula in between toes and into the skin on the bottom of the foot, efficacy is increased, and we are also able to help exfoliate infected dead skin cell particles off the skin, throw the compostable wipe away, and reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Smooth AF® wipes also eliminate the waste of overspray from a non-recyclable metal aerosol can and the greasy mess and excess application of a cream.
Absolutely! In addition to the powerful and proven antifungal drug Tolnaftate, Smooth AF®’s unique formula contains Eucalyptus and Peppermint. These are natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic ingredients whose properties help eliminate odor, cool the skin, and enhances aroma with a fresh scent. Smooth AF® keeps feet smelling and feeling fresh.
The American Podiatric Medical Association has granted their prestigious Seal of Approval to Smooth AF for its ease of use and contributions to better foot health. Smooth AF®’s patented formula and process is the only FDA OTC foot care product produced without alcohol or parabens. Smooth AF®’s formula is a true scientific breakthrough!
