When it comes to terrifying toenails, Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste is just what the doctor ordered. Paul Kinsinger, MD of Washington, Illinois is the mastermind behind Dr. Paul’s Piggy Paste, a product that revolutionizes the age-old problem of unsightly toenails caused by toenail fungus.
The Illinois native developed the idea for Piggy Paste to meet demands from patients who came to him with questions regarding embarrassing and unsightly toenails. “I knew from medical school that you could soak your toenails in white vinegar and water to improve the appearance of toenails affected by toenail fungus” Kinsinger said. “But guess what? Most people won’t do that. It’s messy and it’s time consuming. Even though TV’s famous Dr. Oz has proclaimed the virtues of daily 20-minute soaks in vinegar (acetic acid) and water for toenail fungus, most people just don’t have the time and patience to do this,” says Kinsinger.
Kinsinger took it upon himself to develop a more efficient alternative to this home remedy. With the goal of developing a cosmetic product that improved toenail appearance, Kinsinger worked with a local compounding pharmacist. They put together a product that contains acetic acid (vinegar) and thymol in an easy-to-use gel. With once-a-day applications of Piggy Paste, people could cut time and cleanup from the traditional vinegar toenail regimen – a huge advantage for today’s busy world.
After seeing successful results in improving the toenail appearance due to toenail fungus in his own practice, Kinsinger decided to sell Piggy Paste to local stores in the Peoria area in early 2010.
Dr. Paul went on to sell his Piggy Paste in national retailers like Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Target , and others. Unfortunately Dr. Paul passed away in 2016 after battling health issues for over a year. Piggy Paste disappeared from the shelves soon after.
In June of 2018 however, we discovered Piggy Paste in a liquidation store. We tried the product and it worked great! After researching the product, we discovered that it was no longer being produced. So after an exhaustive search, we located Dr. Pauls family, and struck a deal to buy the company.
Now we are three friends on a mission to bring Piggy Paste back to the public, and to honor the legacy that Dr. Paul began so many years ago. We do hope that you will give Piggy Paste a try.
