Sole Pads are patches worn on the bottom of the foot to detox the body. Most foot patches include starch, mushrooms and sugar. According to the official website for Sole Pads, none of these filling ingredients are used with their natural product. There are very few ingredients in Sole Pads, but they are common ingredients used in many foot detox patches. Just because the company has taken out the fillers does not mean they changed the remaining ingredients.

Tourmaline, bamboo vinegar and eleutherococcus senticosus. Other ingredients may include achyranthis root, red peony root, Artemisia iwayomogi, peashrub and balloon flower.
Detox foot patches like Sole Pads, have been studied, researched and studied some more. The patches do not work to detox the body in any way. The ingredients create a visual effect that may fool users into believing the formula is pulling dark colored waste through the sole of the foot.
