Clarus-Antifungal Solution
How is this different from Tinactin? ## Hi John, Based on my research, Tinactin and Clarus-Antifungal solution both contain 1% of the same active ingredient Tolnaftate. The only difference would be the "inactive" ingredients used. Both of these anti-fungals come in cream form but from what I can gather, only Tinactin comes in an aerosol spray and powder formulation. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Tinactin Details I hope this helps! Please post back if you have any more questions.
