Who can benefit from Mavala Stop
Mavala Stop is made for people who are biting their nails to work as a warning when the person puts their hand to the mouth. The strong taste is perceived as horrible and this is what makes a person stop the bad habit. It can also be used on babies and children that bite their nails or suck their thumbs. For children it is advisable to user smaller amounts but also a very little bit of Mavala Stop leaves a taste that makes the nail biting impossible.
Pros and Cons
The pros of Mavala Stop are that it is very effective with a taste that is hard to handle. It is also easy to use Mavala Stop since it is clear and can sit on top of nail polish with color. Parents can safely use this product for children with good results.
The cons of Mavala Stop are the horrid taste and that you must be persistent with the treatment to truly stop the biting. If you let it wear off and push up applying a new layer the nail biting can start up again.
What People Say about Mavala Stop
“I bit my nails for 15 years and I finally got rid of the habit…” – Karen Rowell, Chicago
“It worked nicely on my 3 year old but I was a bit afraid of the terrible taste and that he would start again once we quit the treatment. We haven’t used it for 5 months now and he is still not biting.” – Charlotte Johansen, New York
“My daughter could not stop sucking her thumb and at 12 years old it was becoming a source of embarrassment. We tried Mavala and she could stop during the day. In the night I have to help her to add an extra layer to keep that thumb out of her mouth!” – Denny Ronsen, Texas
