Garra Rufa fish painlessly peel off the skin with their toothless jaws. Their oral cavity produces the enzyme ditranol, which instantly disinfects the wound and helps to heal. They alleviate and treat skin diseases such as atopic eczema, acne, skin molds and psoriasis, while providing you with a very gentle and perfect pedicure.
