Description

This Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is part of a large range of products in the Oilatum range, which are designed for specialist care in the treatment of dry skin conditions such as eczema.

This shampoo not only thoroughly cleans the hair to leave it feeling shiny and healthy; it helps to remove the dandruff that forms from flaky skin on the scalp, and soothes itchy scalps that often result from dry skin conditions.

Dandruff can be especially difficult to treat when there is an underlying skin condition causing a dry, flaky, and itchy scalp. When using standard shampoos, soaps and cleansers, these conditions can worsen due to the irritants that they often contain, which can make the scalp even drier and itchier.

Oilatum Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is pH-balanced, colour-free, and contains none of the common irritants that aggravate scalps. It is formulated with ciclopirox olamine, which is a synthetic antifungal agent that helps clear the flakes and scale associated with stubborn dandruff.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find any clinical data on the use of Oilatum Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo in people with psoriasis. However, the product contains salicylic acid.

Salicylic acid has a keratolytic effect which can help softening the plaques and upper layers of the skin. Because of the keratolytic effect, salicylic acid is sometimes used as an adjunctive treatment in psoriasis, where it is believed to enhance the penetration of topical therapeutics (1). For instance, in people with moderate plaque psoriasis a combination treatment including salicylic acid with a corticosteroid was shown to be more effective than the corticosteroid treatment alone, following a 3-week study period (2).

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find any clinical data on the use of Oilatum Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo in people with atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains salicylic acid. Salicylic acid has a keratolytic effect which can help softening the upper layer of the skin.

OBS! The product contains SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), so it is important to shower this product properly off.
