Evonail Update

Bottle of Evonail Nail Repair Solution

Have you been wondering why you can’t find Evonail Repair Solution in stock anywhere?

Evonail Repair used to be the go to product for chemo nails. It was recommended by doctors, nurses and cancer patients around the world in order to prevent nail damage during chemotherapy treatment.

You only have to Google Evonail to find hundreds of positive reviews of this ‘hero’ product. Evonail has been clinically proven for preventative purposes at the start of taxane based chemotherapy, to significantly reduce the incidence of onycholsis (the loosening or separation of the nail from the nail bed) in breast cancer patients. Evonail has also been shown to soothe inflammation and reduce the severity of onycholsis where it has already developed.

But unfortunately Evaux Laboratoires, the French-based manufacturer of Evonail, has gone into administration with no more stock of Evonail available.

This is obviously extremely disappointing, and we've spent months looking for alternative products to help prevent and repair chemotherapy related nail damage.

Alternative products to help look after chemotherapy damaged nails


Polybalm is a natural nail remedy and it's one of the few nail products we've found that has been clinically proven to reduce chemotherapy related nail damage.

Polybalm moisturises the skin and prevents drying, splitting and cracking of the nail during chemotherapy treatment.

FlexiNail has shown impressive results although not necessarily with cancer patients. FlexiNail repairs dry, brittle, splitting or weak, peeling nails.

For a nail product to show long term results, it needs to penetrate the nail which is made of alpha keratin and is very different in composition to skin. Most conditioning oils don't penetrate - they just sit on top of the nail, absorbing into the cuticle - but not the nail itself. FlexiNail has a unique and precise formulation enabling it to penetrate into the nail plate, stimulating healthy looking fingernail growth.
