Tinea versicolor (pityriasis versicolor) is a common skin infection caused by the yeast infection (Pityrosporum ovale).The yeat interferes with the normal tanning of the skin. This results in small areas that are lighter than surrounding skin. This yeast is normally found on the human skin and only becomes troublesome under certain circumstances, such as a warm and humid environment. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates.
• Oval or irregularly-shaped spots of 1/4 to 1 inch in diameter, often merging together to form a larger patch
• Occasional fine scaling of the skin producing a very superficial ash-like scale
• Pale, dark tan, or pink in color, with a reddish undertone that can darken when the patient is overheated, such as in a hot shower or during/after exercise
• Itching that can worsen with sweating or overheating
"After trying many products to treat my Tinea Versicolor infection I found Saprox to work the best" Andrea, Cleaveland, OH
Areas commonly infected by tinea versicolor
SAPROX is 100% natural clay that contains sulphur and other minerals, humic acids, essential oils and other organic substances that are a product of very slow decomposition of herbs and aquatic plants without presence of oxygen over thousands of years. This natural process preserves beneficial elements within the clay. The combination of all elements play an important part of SAPROX's complex effect.
Saprox's significant healing effect is inhibiting and preventing growth of fungus and yeast.
The anaerobic condition where Saprox exists prevents parasites, fungus and most bacteria from invading the mud deeming it safe to use on skin without open sores. Do not apply Saprox to an open bleeding skin wound.

• Tinea versicolor
• Tinea cruris (Jock itch)
• Tinea pedis (Athlete's Foot)
• Tinea corporis (Ringworm)
• Tinea capitis (Ringworm of the scalp)
• Tinea unguium (Toenail fungus) - mild
• Persistant foot odor
• ...and many other fungus type
Action: anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Contains minerals, humic acids, rich in organic sulphur. 100% natural, no additives.
PROPER APPLICATION OF SAPROX
Wash and dry application area thoroughly. Shake Saprox container well. Apply to affected area and beyond 100% additional to ensure effectiveness and prevent re-infection. This means if affected area is 1 inch in size, apply enough for 2 inches (exceptions noted below). The application should be an even green layer. Allow Saprox to completely dry which is about 15 minutes. Once dry, wash Saprox off in shower, sink or use a damp washcloth.
Exceptions: If fungus affects more than one toe or toenail, apply to all toes top and bottom to ensure proper treatment.
If fungus affects only one toe or toenail, apply to nail and surrounding skin.
If fungus affects the body of the foot, apply Saprox to entire foot top and bottom as the foot is a prime environment for fungus.
If application area is sensitive such as the face or groin, one may apply moisturizer afterwards. It is recommended not to apply moisturizer if not necessary; however, if skin becomes sensitive, then moisturizer must be used following each application. Applying a standard moisturizer may aggravate the condition so use Torf Facial Moisturizer as it is the proper skin pH, contains humic acids and does not encourage fungal growth.

Tinea versicolor: If Saprox dries too quickly, one may rewet the surface with a spray bottle. This allows the sulfur to penetrate more effectively for longer duration. Ideally have someone apply Saprox and rewet it for you to ensure proper coverage if on back or shoulders. Rewetting the Saprox once should be enough. Then allow to dry and wash off. Tinea barbae: It is best to shave prior to application to ensure proper coverage of Saprox on affected areas. Treatment time will be less and outcome effective. If beard is left intact, then fungus may re-infect as complete coverage of affected area may not be possible. If shaving is not an option, pour necessary amount of Saprox to cover treatment area into a small bowl and dilute with a bit of water for a less muddy consistency. Use hands or put on large cloth and apply Saprox fully. Allow Saprox to dry and then shower off well as Saprox will adhere to the beard. Tinea pedis: If only one toe is affected, simply apply a small amount on directly on the affected area. Let dry and then wash off. If more than one toe is affected, apply to all toes to prevent cross-contamination. Purchase 100% cotton socks and spray shoes with 1 part bleach to 10 parts water. Wash white socks with bleach. Tinea cruris: If one is overweight and skin sweaty all day, it may be best to leave Saprox on all day. Purchase 100% cotton boxers for better breathability.
A research abstract describing how sulphur in Saprox works:
Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, Sunnybrook And Women's College Health Science Center, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sulfur has antifungal, antibacterial, and keratolytic activity. In the past, its use was widespread in dermatological disorders such as acne vulgaris, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, dandruff, pityriasis versicolor, scabies, and warts. Adverse events associated with topically applied sulfur are rare and mainly involve mild application site reactions. Sulfur, used alone or in combination with agents such as sodium sulfacetamide or salicylic acid, has demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of many dermatological conditions.
