Undecylenic acid and its salts have a fungistatic effect and at high concentrations (Mykoseptin contains 5% undecylenic acid and 20% zinc salt), they have a fungicidal (antifungal) effect on the dermatophytes Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagriphynes, Epidermophyton floccosum, and Microsporon audouini. They also have a bacteriostatic effect on certain microbes such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus rettgeri, Aeromonas hydrophila, and Yersinia enterocolitica.
