This review is for a product called Hongo Cura Anti-fungal from HC Max. The maker’s of this product claim to offer a treatment for the uncomfortable symptoms that are often associated with a fungal infection that causes athlete’s foot. These symptoms include burning, itching, redness, and swelling of the toes and feet.
- Zinc undecenoate 20%
- Undecylenic acid 5%
- White Petroleum
At first, this seemed like an excellent formulation of ingredients. However, further research seems to indicate that there are a few issues with the formula. Products that treat fungal infections should contain a concentration of at least 25%.

Conclusion of Our Hongo Cura Anti-fungal Review
In concluding our review of this product, we found several positive aspects. This cream contains some key ingredients that have been proven effective in treating athlete’s foot. The instructions and warning are clearly explained on the product website. However, we do have some concerns about Hongo Cura. There is no assurance from the manufacturer that this cream is free from GMO ingredients, or that it is made in an FDA certified facility. We were also disappointed to see that the manufacturer does not offer any guarantee or a return policy so if you buy this product you are taking a risk. At $14.99 for a 1oz tube of cream, this is a costly product to buy and made more expensive because there are no bulk purchase discounts or new customer incentives offered by the manufacturer. Finally, we were rather concerned about the lack of customer reviews available for this product. When we checked, there were only 13 reviews on Amazon. For all these aforementioned reasons we are recommending that you look for an alternative product and skip this one. We suggest that you seek out an athlete’s foot product that comes with a solid guarantee and return policy with a wide body of positive reviews and one that is priced well with some good value bulk buying discounts.
