Inside The Ingredients: Discover Why Finipil Reigns #1 Ingrown Hair Cream

Published by Simone on Nov 9th 2023


Finipil® antiseptic cream is well-known for its remarkable benefits, and if you haven't heard about it yet, it's time to catch up! Finipil® is an FDA-approved product that has been proven to eliminate 99.999% of bacteria on the skin. It's carefully crafted with high-quality ingredients to provide a lightweight cream that not only moisturizes but also offers protection wherever it's applied. Finipil® has cooling and soothing properties, making it particularly effective in safeguarding hair follicles against infections, making it the ideal choice after various hair removal services and treatments as it eliminates old ingrown hairs. 
But what's the secret behind Finipil®'s impressive performance? Let's delve into the science behind its formula and highlight some of the key ingredients that make Finipil® a top-notch solution for addressing ingrown hair issues and a range of other valuable applications. 

Benzethonium Chloride 

Benzethonium chloride is the crucial active ingredient used in Finipil® for its remarkable antiseptic properties. This compound plays a pivotal role as an effective defense against a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi. Its antimicrobial properties make it an essential component, particularly in wound care and first-aid creams, where preventing infection is of paramount importance. 
The mechanism of action of Benzethonium chloride involves its adhesion to the negatively charged cell walls of microorganisms. This disrupts their normal cellular processes, ultimately leading to cell death or inhibiting their growth. Consequently, it creates a sterile environment, promoting the prevention of infections and supporting the healing process. Moreover, its gentle nature is advantageous, as it is less likely to cause skin irritation when used as directed. 
The use of an antiseptic substance like Benzethonium chloride in formulas such as Finipil® is not only effective but also safe for sensitive skin and delicate areas. It serves as a reliable way to reduce the presence of germs and bacteria in freshly treated hair follicles, which is particularly important for maintaining skin health after hair removal treatments. With Finipil®, you are not just moisturizing the skin; you are disinfecting it and preventing further bacterial growth anywhere you put this product.

Finipil® is filled with other great ingredients like bisabolol and chlorhexidine gluconate 

Bisabolol is derived from chamomile and is well-tolerated by sensitive skin. It is known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties and helps reduce redness and irritation associated with hair removal. Chlorhexidine gluconate is a potent antiseptic agent with broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties. It effectively kills a wide range of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. In an antiseptic cream, it helps maintain a sterile environment, preventing infection and eliminates odor. 
If you've ever wondered why Finipil® leaves your skin feeling soothed and cooled, one of the contributing factors is the presence of menthyl lactate as an ingredient. Menthyl lactate is derived from menthol, a natural compound found in mint plants. It offers a milder and less intense cooling sensation compared to pure menthol, making it suitable for skincare applications and providing that nice refreshing feeling once Finipil is applied. In addition to the menthyl lactate, witch hazel and chamomile enhance the sensory experience with their natural anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. 

Top 5 Favorite Uses for Finipil® 

  1. Deodorant: Finipil® is an excellent sanitizer with ingredients that effectively inhibit bacteria and eliminate odors, making it my preferred deodorant choice. If you're looking to avoid aluminum-based deodorants or tired of simply masking odors instead of addressing the root cause, Finipil® is a fantastic alternative. Keep in mind that it's not an antiperspirant; however, most alternative deodorant options aren't antiperspirants either. What sets Finipil® apart is its ability to prevent potential ingrown hairs under your arms and actively eliminate odor-causing bacteria rather than just reducing it. 
  2. After Shave Cream: I personally don't wax, and shaving is often discouraged due to the likelihood of developing ingrown hairs in sensitive areas. I used to be self-conscious about my ingrown hairs and found that nothing seemed to work until I started using Finipil®. Its proven science has been effective, and I apply Finipil® to my bikini area after shaving, and I've experienced minimal issues with ingrown hairs and discomfort. 
  3. Acne Spot Treatment: When I have stubborn pimples, I apply a small amount of Finipil® to the affected area to ensure it breaks down bacteria and clears my pores. 
  4. Application After Eyebrow Threading: If you're like me and find eyebrow threading painful, you may experience redness and irritation after the treatment. Applying Finipil® immediately after threading helps soothe the skin and prevent pore clogging. 
  5. Use on Fingernails to Prevent Nail Fungus: No shame here! If you frequently wear acrylic nails for extended periods, you may be susceptible to nail fungus and damaged cuticles. The harsh chemicals can wear on your natural nails, and moisture can get trapped between your nail and the fake nails, creating an environment for bacteria to grow. To prevent this, I always allow time between nail treatments to let my nails breathe, and I apply Finipil® to eliminate any fungi and protect my cuticles and natural nail beds. 

The possibilities are endless with Finipil®!
