Severe Problem Nails: Remove all nail polish. Apply the conditioner 4 times daily. (More if desired). Nail conditioner should be massaged into the entire nail, cuticle, and matrix area (the skin area behind the cuticle where new nails form). Continue to use the conditioner 4 times daily until nails are the desired strength and health.
Mild Problem Nails: Apply conditioner 2-4 times daily. (More if desired.) Follow directions above. Once nails are at the desired strength &health, follow the maintenance below.
Maintaining Healthy Nails: Apply conditioner once daily. If using nail polish be sure to rub the conditioner into the cuticles and matrix area. This will help to moisturize the cuticle & aid new nail growth.

Excellent product. Had it recommended to me and I've used it for several years now.
Pros: I believe it makes my nails feel stronger, and does keep the cuticles nice.

Rebecca (11/25/2012 1:46:29 PM)
I bite my nails and cuticles severely. When using nail conditioner I was actually able to grow some healthy nails!
Pros: easy to use, feels great on
Janie (10/19/2012 6:37:57 PM)
Nail Conditioner was suggested to me by my dermatologist for both my cuticles and finger nails. Both have improved greatly by using this product just once a day. Also works well on extremely dry patches of skin, such as elbows.
Pros: Easy and quick to use. Results in just 2 days.
Martha (10/16/2012 8:12:04 AM)
This cream saved my splitting nail and helped hydrate the others. I'll keep using it and have recommended it to others.
Rose (10/12/2012 7:02:43 PM)
I am very pleased with this nail conditioner, having had peeling nails for many years. I only used one vial, and already can see a significant change for the better. I'm re-ordering it.
Pros: Easy to use. Results are forthcoming quickly.
Cons: Instructions say to use on bare nails, unpolished. I prefer to use nail polish, but I'm still getting good results nevertheless.
Patricia Murphy (8/17/2012 9:22:42 PM)
Amazing product! My nails were splitting vertically and cracking prior to using this product. This has greatly improved. My cuticles have also improved. I am a nurse practitioner and have recommended this product to my patients
DAGMAR BABAIN (8/17/2012 1:53:18 PM)
I discovered elon many years ago in a pharmacy (which seized to exist) and found it tpo be THE BEST EVER
Pros: really effective
Cons: have to apply it to often which is annoying especially being at work and having greasy fingers
susan hayes (7/15/2012 9:19:04 AM)
Pros: my nails are in the best condition ever in my life
Jean L. Moore (6/28/2012 7:41:12 PM)
Elon is the only nail preparation that I have used
that actually promotes new
Christine Omarra (6/19/2012 2:03:50 PM)
THough I like the way the conditioner goes on and softens cuticles it isn't convenient to have to use it so frequently to see results.
Pros: Softens cuticles massages nicely into nail.
Cons: Not convenient to have to apply so often to see results. THough I used it religiously for over a month along with your vitamin supplement I only saw slight improvement and didn't like not being able to use even a nail strengthening top coat to give my nails a shine.
patricia Remmell (6/16/2012 3:58:36 PM)
Jean L. Moore (5/23/2012 11:49:43 PM)
This product was the only
nail treatment that really
helped to strength my nails
Pros: It is easy to apply.
Cons: I have no "cons" for this
Deirdre Honick (4/30/2012 3:43:31 PM)
Recommended by my dermatologist. Medication I take is very hard on nails. Keeping them moisturized helps. Lower results rating due to inability of any product to overcome effects of medication
Pros: Rich cream, not too greasy, easy to use
Donna Elton (3/6/2012 8:22:20 AM)
This product is absolutely amazing. Everytime I order I get two and give one to a friend who falls in love with it as well!
Pros: Is not greasy and doesn't get on anything-I keep one in my car and one on my table while watching TV. I just put a tiny dab on each nail and sit and massage at traffic lights or commercials-use 4 times a day and nails & cuticles become healthy before your eyes. After one month I noticed ridges healing and even had nails to paint for my son's wedding!
Cons: Absolutely none! Love this product!
kacie (3/3/2012 10:25:21 AM)
Works within 2 weeks of use, but you have to keep using it until your nails grow out. I notice a gigantic difference when I start and stop use. Very great product!
Pros: Works quickly, cheap, effective.
Cons: Smells weird.
Sharon Fischer (2/19/2012 2:17:16 PM)
I have been using Elon Nail Conditioner for about 6 years now. While my nails are not perfect, they are so very very much better than before. I faithfully use Elon every night before bed.
Patricia Remmell (1/28/2012 5:04:41 PM)
Nancy (1/7/2012 7:29:37 PM)
This cream is great for dry, cracked cuticles and daily use is essential for keeping them looking healthy.
Mary Johnson (12/18/2011 9:34:19 PM)
I love this stuff for my fingernails!
Pros: goes on with ease
Cons: not a large enough tube
Kris Braslawsce (10/31/2011 8:11:47 AM)
This product works! My nails were thin, peeled & cracked easily before I used this product. I had tried several nail products before I found Elon. Absolutely recommend!
penell (10/18/2011 4:31:00 PM)
It works to strengthen my nails because without it they are like Mica. Elon doesn't create nails as hard as iron but in my case anything is better than nothing.
Pros: Only a few minutes after applying to fingers the cream part dissappears and your hands feel good, NOT STICKY !! like other products.
Cons: Doesn't make nails as strong as I'd like but a big help.
sford (10/13/2011 1:54:34 PM)
It's been working great up until LAST WEEK! I was travelling and my nails started breaking and systematially have continued breaking each day. I hope it's a result of travel? i'm not sure. the peeling has stopped for the most part, but i am a bit concerned about the mass exodus of my long strong nails!

My nails have never looked better just from the short time I've been using this conditioner!
Pros: Has my nails looking healthy and has stopped the chipping and breaking.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of
Mary Johnson (9/6/2011 3:17:17 PM)
My nails were dry and cracked, spliting in every direction.
Pros: This product in just 2 weeks makes my nails look healthier.
Cons: None so far
Denise Kraft (8/24/2011 8:46:54 PM)
I had a crack in my thumb nail for about 10 years that was obviously a flaw in my nail. I tried everything and then heard of this nail cream while at the dermatologist. For about 6 months I used it four times a day until the crack finally grew out. Now I use it morning and night without fail and my nails are beautiful!! I keep a tube at home, work and in my purse to be sure I always have one available.
Pros: Easy to use and works!!
Karen E (ext 114) (8/23/2011 11:06:00 AM)STAFF FAVORITE
- Artificial nails had damaged my natural nails leaving them weak and peeling. This product fixed everything!
Pros: Moisturized nails. Now they are stronger. They are not peeling and look great.
J Wimple (8/3/2011 12:03:05 PM)
Recommended by dermatologist for split and peeling nails. Used as directed makes a significant difference.
Pros: Ease of application.
terri (7/16/2011 10:12:22 AM)
Used to treat cracking of nail bed. Improved craking, but very sticky product.
Pros: somewhat effective in improving nail cracking.
Cons: product is very sticky. hard to wash off fingers after application. Dirt from everyday activities sticks to area applied
Carol Bloom (7/2/2011 5:37:57 PM)
After many years of putting up with weak, split and cracked nails, a new dermatologist recommended this product. My nails have grown out since I began using the product as directed, and for the first time since my youth, I have good nails again!
Pros: The product is easy to use. (I keep it at my bedside.) I would recommend it to anyone with problem nails.
Deirdre Honick (6/24/2011 12:20:29 AM)
Recommended by my dermatologist to counteract the effect of a medication prescribed for psoriasis, Elon has made a huge difference to the condition and strength of my nails.
Pros: Quick and easy to use, Elon has smoothed out ridges in my nails and strengthened them considerably.
Bonnie Hiner (6/16/2011 12:22:51 PM)
I went to my dermatologis because my nails were in such terrible shape. She recommended Elon Nail Conditioner.I have tried so many products in the past several years, and this seems to be the only one that has worked for me. It is also the most convenient to use and so much better than liquid products that have to be applied like nail polish.
Pros: The convenience. Just rub it on your nails and you are ready to go!
Judy Whaley (6/15/2011 10:55:03 AM)
I have very bad ridges and was hoping the conditioner would help. Not much change in nails at all. Will keep using.
pat remmell (5/29/2011 6:39:42 PM)
Cynthia Bagwell (5/18/2011 8:55:25 AM)
Not often do I find a product that produces results as advertised. Many years of having acrylic nails have left my natural nails thin and brittle. By using the Elon Nail Conditioner, I can have strong, thicker nails that are hard to break and no splitting. I would recomend this product to anyone that has problem nails. I've even convinced my husband to use the conditioner because even he can see improvement in his nails.
Karen (5/17/2011 3:04:14 PM)
My nails have never been as healthy as when using this product.
Virginia Lester (4/21/2011 2:26:21 PM)
I love the product! How do I oder it again?
PATSREM@COX.NET (4/12/2011 8:52:33 PM)
Effective product, but took a year's appplication to fingernails.
Cons: Small container size.
Carolyn (4/10/2011 7:06:57 PM)
My dermatologist recommend this product for dry nails and cuticles and I have used it for 2 years. It is wonderful at eliminating cracked cuticles and keeping my nails nourished.
Pros: Easy to use and carry.
Pamela Schmidt (3/26/2011 11:48:43 AM)
This product healed my cuticles very quickly, and also the places where the skin had split around my thumbs. My nails are not very smooth, perhaps because of age, but it is helping them also.
Connie (3/12/2011 4:22:13 PM)
Nothing short of miraculous.
Cured my cuticle problem, my ridge problem and my nail from bed separtation problem in a very short time.
Pros: Really works and works fast.
Cons: Like everyone says, too hard to get it all out of tube. I cut the end off when I can't squeeze any more out and use every last drop. It is sort of expensive when using 4x's a day but I would pay twice as much if I had to, because it WORKS.
Sharon (2/20/2011 11:18:42 AM)
I have been using Elon Nail Conditioner for about 6 years. My nails don't split so badly since I have been using Elon. While they are not perfect, they are better. Elon also helps add moisture to my dry cuticles in the winter.
Pros: Easy to use. Good results. Reasonable cost.
Cons: Not perfect!
Emily G Patton (2/12/2011 10:26:29 AM)
Mahvash (1/5/2011 6:12:43 PM)
It has helped me with my brittle, breakable nails.
Lu (1/2/2011 11:54:25 AM)
This has saved my cuticles and works better than anything else I have ever tried.
Pros: cuticles stay moist and don't develop hangnails and rough edges. It doesn't ruin my manicure.
Cons: the last 20% or so is too difficult to get out of the tube. I would prefer a jar rather than a tube.
abnag (12/7/2010 11:51:43 AM)
After years of being embarrassed by the appearance of my nails, at the direction of my dermatologist, I purchased Elon nail conditioner, and this stuff really works. I will continue to use this product forever! And Elon Skin Conditioner cream is wonderful too.
Pros: It works!
Cons: Wish it came in a larger tube.
Catherine McGugan (10/24/2010 8:36:38 PM)
Was pleased with my purchase of Elon for my nails. Seems to be working to improve my nails.
Susan Bauer (10/17/2010 8:31:26 AM)
I have had weak, peeling nails for about 10 years - having visted many doctors, including dermatologists, for help, a podiatrist gave me a sample of this product. And it worked. It did take about 6 months to see a difference, but I used it only once a day. I am so please with the result because it is the only product I have used (and I have used MANY) that finally made it possible to put my hands in my pockets without peeling back a layer of nail!
Pros: When all else failed, this product worked.
Cons: It's a little bit difficult to squeeze the tube, especially for arthritic hands.
Cynthia (10/11/2010 10:13:26 AM)
My nails have never been as healthy. They are stronger, more hydrated and grow faster. Definately a plus for anyone who has problems with breaking and splitting nails. I am thankful for my friend bringing me an article about this product.
Char Meese (10/10/2010 8:58:11 PM)
Yes I would buy again, but I can't believe the same type of product isn't available in the stores.
Pros: Thick stays in place
Cons: Price, So so much or such a small tube.
Carolyn Byars (9/17/2010 8:58:38 AM)
This is still my favorite product that I have ever bought for my nails! I recommend it often and have even thought of becoming a distributor. It saved my nails and my nerves!!!
Margaret Broersma (9/15/2010 3:07:59 PM)
I love this product!
It really works.
I bought Elon because a dermatologist a long time ago told me to.
Pros: Yes, I still have to wear gloves for dishwashing, but if I do, it really protects and allows my nails to grow.
Cons: I can't think of any cons. A bigger tube maybe? But then again, two tubes last all year! : )
Patricia (9/3/2010 8:44:39 PM)
I have using Elon nail conditioner for 6 weeks. My nails look awesome. I wish I had used this conditioner years ago, my nails are in better shape than ever. thank Elon for a wonderful product.
Pros: I liked its thickness. The cream really helped soften my cuticles and surrounding skin.
Cons: I disliked the price. It is quite expensive for such a little bit. I'm trying to find a substitute that is more reasonable.
susan striepe (8/8/2010 3:18:46 PM)
My manicurist recomended this product 4 years ago. My acrylic nails had to go and I needed a product to protect and heal while my own nails recovered. I've used it daily, ever sense.
Pros: I am 50+,post menapausal, and my nails have never been healthier.
Cons: None..only positive things to say about this product
Sharon B. (7/28/2010)
Elon Nail Conditioner healed my peeling, cracking, dry nails! I applied twice a day and saw improvement in 3 weeks. I highly recommend this product! My nails are long and attractive again! I will continue to use this product.
I have struggled to have nice nails all my life. I even tried acrylics...what a disaster after I stopped! But using this product has allowed me to have beautiful, strong nails for the first time. I am SOLD!!!! I`ll use it forever.
Pros: The small compact tube allows me to keep one in my purse so I can apply it anywhere, anytime.
elon nail conditioner was prescribed by my dermatologist as part of a routine to help my SEVERLY damaged problem nails and finger tips. I have just ordered two more tubes (already used three) because to my amazement and in spite of all my doubts my nails are improving and the cuticles and fingertips look and feel so much better (like normal hands and nails should look and feel!). I will continue use of this product forever!
Pros: It works!
Cons: Wish it came in a bigger size. The small tube doesn't last long when it must be used several times a day.
My nails were peeling and breaking terribly and nothing I tried was helping. My dermatologist recommended Elon nail conditioner, and my nails are now healthy and no longer peeling!
Pros: It is very easy to use and effective with applying only twice a day. I saw results very quickly.
Cons: I wish it was available in a larger tube.
Excellent product. Like others, I wish it came in a bigger tube. Don`t mind paying for a product that works but don`t like paying for shipping for no reason. The ointment is very very sticky when you first apply it but the stickiness goes away quickly. If it is this product and not anything else by coincidence, making my nails grow, cuticles softer and nails harder, then the product is a miracle producer. Nothing else has ever helped my cuticles and they were driving me crazy. The only reason I didn`t give it 5 stars was due to the stickiness and the size of the tube.
Pros: Fast working
WOW!!! Finally a product that really works. My dermatologist recommended this and it is an excellent product. Even helped my 85 year old mother who`s nails were very dry and brittle. I`ve always had problems with soft nails that would crack and peel but not anymore. My nails are healthy and beautiful after just 4 weeks of using the nail conditioner 2 to 4 times a day.
Pros: Easy to apply, creamy texture that seems to work immediately.
Cons: The smell isn't great but goes away quickly.
My dermotologist recommended this product for dry, brittle nails.
Pros: this winter, I've experienced less chipping.
Cons: Product is sticky; apply at bedtime or just before a commute to work.
Joan Manoni (3/19/2010)
Pros: I could start seeing results within the second week. I feel that I cannot stop using this product. It really works.
Cons: You can't wear nail polish. You have to apply the cream 3-4 times a day, therefore, the tube of cream does not last very long. I went through a tube in 4 weeks.
not a product I would buy again..not a noticeable difference
Pros: briefly moisturized
Cons: was very thick and hard to squeeze out of tube..not a good value for the money..the tube is very small
Kim Moldenhauer (2/6/2010)
KIM IN COLORADO (2/6/2010)
Pros: MY NAILS DO NOT PEEL AND SPLIT ANYMORE!!!!!
Cons: WOULD LIKE IT IN A LARGER SIZE TUBE!!!
Kim IN COLORADO (2/6/2010)
Pros: MY NAIL DO NOT PEEL AND CRACK ANYMORE!!!!
Cons: WOULD LIKE IT IN A LARGER SIZE
Carolyn Byars (1/22/2010)
My dermatologist recommended Elon nail conditioner to me because my fingernails were very dry and peeling badly. After 6 months of using this product, my nails were healthy and actually growing long enough to file. Then I ordered the Elon Professional Nail Care System files. I`ve been using both products for 4 years with great results. I keep a tube by my bed and one in my purse to apply at red lights on my way to work. Now I give the conditioner as gifts to my sisters and friends. They make great stocking stuffers at Christmas! Thanks Elon not only for making this product, but also for making it so reasonably priced.
Pros: The results, the convenience, the cost
Cons: I like the brown tube, but not the white tube, because it is very hard to get the conditioner to come out.
Have used Elon Nail Conditioner for several years and find it like a miracle conditioner. My split nails ``disappear`` quicker than I would think possible and I can show my hands again.
Pros: affordable, easy to use, portable
Cons: not available in retail outlets- Walgreens, Costco, etc
This is a great product. My fingernails were peeling after having acrylic nails on & this corrected the problem
This is a wonderful product. My nails were splitting and peeling after having artificial nails on for a while. I used the nail conditioner and the peeling stopped!
Pros: This product was recommended by my dermatologist for dry, flaky nails. I have used it for about 4 years. My nails are strong and cuticles look great. I can't imagine being without the cream.
Amy V (10/24/2009)
This nail conditioner works!! I used it 1-3 times per day on a fingernail that had a split in it and which had not healed over the course of a year. My dermatologist recommended using this on my injured nail, as well as the others. In only 3-4 weeks, my nail has healed -- no more split -- and my nails look great.
S. Lee (10/1/2009)
Easy to use - started to see results in 3 weeks
first product that has made a significant difference to my formerly soft and peeling nails -- will definitely continue to use
This is the first product I have used that has helped my peeling, fragile nails. I will be recommending it to my patients as a dermatologist.
Kelly Chalaire (5/20/2009)
I love the product. used to be able to order it through my pharmacy, but then they stopped offering it, so I was thrilled to find out I can order directly on-line. Please don`t quit making it!
Debby Gould (4/14/2009)
I am not a really good on time user but it seems to be working well. I am going to keep usin it and see how it goes.
Pros: My cuticles seem to be a in a lot better shape and even my nails are better.
Cons: No cons.
Joan Carson (3/23/2009)
This stuff is unbelievable! My nails were a mess. The top edges were jagged and even after filing them down, another one would appear for no apparent reeson. My dermatologist recommended it to me. However you have to use it religously and it takes about 8 weeks to see improvement. For the most part, I use it only twice daily because I need to wash my hands often and due to my work situation I was not able to apply 3 or 4 times a day as instructed. My nails also look healthy - sort of a sheen to them as though they have just been buffed. Buy it! It`s inexpensive and a little goes a long way.
To me, this product is worth its weight in more than Gold! Since I was a child, my nails never grew like the other girls I hung with. They were tissue thin, peeled in layers and had a dry look to them. I am soooo pleased to say, after using the Elon lanolin nail cream, my nails do not peel and they have become stronger using the directed applications daily, they also have a luster to them that makes it fun to want to buff them and they are now growing longer and I don`t mind not wearing polish since, they look so good now naturally.
Very pleased, Michelle Z.
Pros: I love the strength Elon lanolin has given my nails and also the natural luster.
Cons: I have not cons other than I wish my Dermatologist would have told me about this product sooner. I am a total believer.
Kay L (3/4/2009)
For several years I had cracked, splitting, pealing fingernails, and no product helped. I kept my nails trimmed all the way down. Elon Conditioner changed that! I used as directed, and within 4 months have had no more problems.
Pros: Easy to use--and it works! For 4 years I have had no split or peeling fingernails.
Cons: What's not to like about nice fingernails?
I have several nails with very deep ridges. Eventually the ridges split and I have to use a silk wrap and glue to hold the nail together. I started the Elon program three months ago and I plan to stick with it for three more months. So far I see an improvement but definitely not a cure. My cuticles look great, though, and the product is easy to apply. It absorbs nicely and does not feel heavy.
After just one week of using Elon my nails have improved. No more dry cuticles, hang nails. It`s a winner!
This is a great product. i noticed a huge difference in the strength of my nails with only once a day use. I highly reccomend it.
Rhonda Barnes (1/21/2009)
This is a great product for problem nails - especially splitting nails. I love it
This conditioning cream and the Matrix Biotin caplets have done a wonderful job on my nails in only about 45 days. I had acrylics for 19 years and have tried everything. These products recommended by Dermatologist....my nails are improving and have almost grown all the damaged nail off....
Pros: The ease and the way this leaves my cuticles and has made my nails grow faster and stronger.
Cons: None that I've experienced.
This product is AMAZING!!! I have had problem nails all my life and resorted to acrylic nails. I`d been wearing them for several years when my mother in law introduced me to Elon Nail Conditioner. I`ve been using it for 5 months. I started out with twice a day and now use it once a day. My nails are beautiful: long, strong, and flexible at the same time. No peeling or cracking at all. Give it a try. If it worked for me, it will work for you. I had tried everything from drug store nail hardeners to expensive salon products and nothing worked. I won`t use anything but Elon again!!
Pros: Everything about this product is great!
Cons: Not crazy about the new packaging. I prefer the tube to the pot.
I use it after I remove my nail polish, let it sit a few minutes and re-apply new polish. Though I dont apply as often as recommended, and always keep my nails polished, it has still helped a great deal. ALso its very concentrated so one little tube goes a long way, and its not product tested on animals. Will defintely keep buying.
K Lewis (10/26/2006)
Ive had split/peeling nails for several YEARS and nothing helped. I read about this in Dallas Morning News column Peoples Pharmacists. My nails now have no splits. I cant believe it!
