Causes of bunions

Carnation Gel Bunion Protectors are made from soft, flexible gel with a toe loop to help positioning over the bunion. They can be washed for repeated use.

  • Bent toes and bunions can run in families but are often caused by defective or ill-fitting footwear.
  • In early teens, bones are soft and still developing and can mould to the shape of the footwear worn.
  • Socks that are too tight or too small, pointed shoes and high heels which cram the toes into the front of the shoe will cause permanent distortion if maintained while the feet develop.
  • A bunion forms on the joint as an attempt to protect against pressure.


Ensure the skin is clean and dry. Place the loop over the big toe, positioning the protector directly over the bunion site to help prevent the bunion becoming tender. Socks or stockings should be worn as normal. The product should be removed overnight, allowing the skin to breath.


Carnation Bunion Protector is made from advanced polymer gel containing mineral oil. The soft flexible gel conforms between the big toe and second toe whilst the mineral oil moisturises and helps soften the skin
