WFP-Large+Box+Front.jpg

Reports of foot infections from pedicures continue increase, and publications like “Death by Pedicure” by Robert Spalding are gaining attention.  Dr. Ming Su, a chemist, was approached by one of the largest nail care products suppliers to discuss the ongoing crisis.

The two collaborated to create a simple solution for all pedicure customers that would sanitize the water and the massage jets, without causing irritation to customers’ feet.  

The solution needed be approved by US regulatory bodies.  After years of research and testing, they succeeded!

Worry Free Pedi is the only patented, EPA registered product consumers can conveniently carry with them for protection from contagious infections during any pedicure.

 

Why You Should CARE About Basin Sanitation

Before Your Pedicure

  1. Prior clients transmit communicable diseases into water, including basin and jets

    • 75% of nail salons do not follow state hygiene guidelines for foot baths.

    • 55 MILLION people in the US have toenail fungus in at least one toe

  2. Paying customers are seldom turned away!

    • Pedicurists are not properly trained medically to turn away customers with “gross feet”

    • Pedicures are sought out as solutions to improve appearance of toenails with fungus for cosmetic reasons

  3. Injured feet, traumatized toenails, or cracked heels from others can transmit disease

During Your Pedicure

  1. Micro-cuts can occur during procedure that can provide means of transmission of infection

  2. Many Spa Tools are NOT PROPERLY disinfected using EPA protocol

  3. Pumice stones and other exfoliating tools are porous and can not be properly sterilized

  4. Transmissions of diseases including:

    • Bacteria: Staph infections, MRSA

    • Athletes foot fungus

    • Warts

    • Toenail Fungus

    • HIV

    • Hepatitis B

  5. The use of plastic liners does not address germs in the basin, drain, and jets.

  6. Pre-existing medical conditions like Diabetes, immunocompromised, or older clients have significantly higher risks of having toenail fungus and some infections

After Your Pedicure

  1. Painful infections can OCCUR IN DAYS

  2. Fungal Infections can last a life time

  3. Seeing a physician, podiatrist or dermatologist becomes necessary, time consuming, and costly

    • Few medical solutions and limited efficacy exist for toenail fungus

    • Topical solutions have limited effectiveness if used early

    • Oral Medications risk drug interactions and adverse effects on the kidneys and liver

  4. Dangerous medical conditions can occur if client is taking medications like blood thinners to boil clotting

  5. Medical pedicures by advanced or medically trained specialists will be required for future pedicures increasing costs over time
