1) Use Consistently
Lather with Tinea Versicolor Soap at least twice daily for 4-10 days. *Depending on the outbreak's severity, it may take longer to see improvement.
2) Soak In The Suds
Allow the sulfur soap to sit on the skin for a few minutes before rinsing it with water. After drying off, we recommend applying our Tinea Versicolor Lotion for large areas and our Tinea Versicolor Treatment Liquid for the more difficult spots.
3) Soak Up The Sunlight
After the outbreak is cleared, your skin will still have discoloration. Be sure to get in the sun and soak up some rays to return the coloration to your skin!

Tinea versicolor fungus can be found on healthy, normal skin. The tinea fungus will only become a problem when the fungus begins to overgrow.
Several factors can trigger the growth, including hot/humid weather, oily skin, hormonal changes that you might be going through (e.g., puberty, pregnancy, menopause), and a weakened immune system (e.g., autoimmune disorder, cold/flu, lack of sleep, anxiety, new prescription or non-prescription drugs, etc.)
Tinea versicolor fungus is likely to come back after treatment, unfortunately.
Thankfully, you can quickly treat the tinea in the early stages with Naturasil and help keep the infection contained when it does come up.
Tinea versicolor is not contagious; you can not pass this along to friends or loved ones.
Naturasil products harness the power of sulfur and combine the soothing nature of lavender to kill the fungus that covers your skin gently. Once the fungus is eliminated, your skin needs to get back into UV Rays (the Sun) to allow the damaged skin to begin to rebuild melanin.
Melanin is a complex protein that makes your skin, hair, and eyes the color they are. Once the melanin protein is produced by your skin cells, the natural color will return.
Results may vary, but generally, results are seen in 7-10 days.
Please Remember: Tinea Versicolor is known to reoccur. To reduce the chances of reoccurring, you may continue using Naturasil Tinea Versicolor Medicated Soap or Tinea Versicolor Lotion once or twice weekly.
All products should be stored in a cool place out of direct sunlight, like a cupboard or closet.
When stored correctly, the concentrated liquid has a 3-year shelf life. Our medicated soaps hold a two-year shelf life when stored appropriately, and our medicated lotion has a one-year shelf life (after it has been opened).
Depending on the area you are treating and the number of times these products are used to treat your tinea will depend on how long the product will last.
