Karin Brückner has been practicing as a podiatrist in Cape Town for over 25 years. She sees patients from all walks of life such as athletes, retirees, diabetics, children and anyone needing foot care. She treats all foot conditions and symptoms related to the foot and ankle, from ingrown toenails, warts and nail infections to foot injuries which may require orthosis (arch supports) or other interventions. As a therapist dealing with foot infections daily, Karin Brückner realised that fungal and bacterial infections often return – even after successful treatment with creams or drugs. Bacteria or fungi cling to shoes, socks, underwear and clothing, sports and gym kit, yoga mats, towels, floor mats and linen. Bacteria and fungi even survive long washes in hot water with detergents.
As a result, Karin, together with leading scientists, developed FungiSolve, a concentrated and economical laundry solution that decontaminates any materials, even in cold water. In SABS tests, FungiSolve has been shown to be a potent decontaminator. Scientific tests show that FungiSolve will not damage cloth, dye colour or stitching of expensive sports shoes and clothes. Fungisolve has been proven to eliminate viruses and is now widely used by podiatrists, dermatologists, and beauty therapists throughout South Africa and overseas.
