In vitro Analysis of Antifungal Activity of a Phytocomplex Fungifree™ against Dermatophytes and Yeasts
In this work, we introduce Fungifree™, a phytocomplex obtained from a blend of essential oils, endowed with remarkable antifungal activity. Dermatophytoses are mycoses caused by a group of fungi known as dermatophytes. Trichophyton genus accounts for about 70% of all dermatophyte infections and is the largest agent responsible for superficial dermatomycoses. In relation to yeasts, the fungus of the normal skin known as Malassezia furfur is the etiological agent of pityriasis versicolor and Candida albicans were studied.
