BioKind’s MALE-TOX® is a waxy cream in a stick applicator, formulated to cleanse, moisturize and soften the skin, improve circulation, and draw out toxins, particularly aluminum, in the male scrotum and perineum areas.
MALE-TOX® directly targets the male reproductive system with a blend of healthful botanicals applied to the skin. Natural ingredients in MALE-TOX® such as Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), Olive Leaf (Olea europaea), and Sea Kelp (Laminaria digitata) support the body in removal of toxins.* Bioactive compounds in these herbs readily form chemical bonds with positive charges; these stable compounds can then be drawn out of the skin through osmosis, or sweat. The kidneys, liver, colon, and skin, are the human body’s natural detoxifiers. Since the skin is the largest organ in the human body, it could potentially be a hugely effective ally in the detoxification process.
Laminaria is a source of iodine for thyroid support, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Laminaria along with Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), White Birch (Betula nigra), Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus, and Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), serve as natural preservatives in the MALE-TOX® formula.
Emollients in MALE-TOX® include coconut oil (Cocos nucifera) and extra virgin olive oil (Olea europaea), that soften and soothe the skin, supporting circulation, removal of dead cells, and rejuvenation of the skin and its natural eliminative channels. Beeswax (Cera flava) seals in moisture without clogging pores, and is a source of beneficial vitamin A and long-chain alcohols that support liver health. The chemical structure of Jojoba oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is very close to that of the natural sebum of human skin, making it a superior moisturizer. Castor oil (Ricinus communis) is a source of triglycerides, particularly ricinoleic acid, which support the immune system.
The polyphenol, oleuropein, present in Olive leaf (Olea europaea) extract, also has antioxidant characteristics, supporting normal cardiovascular function and normal blood sugar levels. Avocado oil is another preferred ingredient in dermatology because of its rapid absorption and deep penetration. It delivers vitamins A, B, D, and E, antioxidants, collagen-stimulating properties, plant sterols, and oleic and other fatty acids that improve skin texture and support healing.
Rosewood oil has a soft, woody scent and is believed by some to have a calming, relaxing, and slightly aphrodisiac effect on humans. The soothing creamy oils in MALE-TOX® can also help to relieve occasional itching and dryness.
