Description

Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo contains coal tar extract as the active ingredient.
Coal tar has been used in skin conditions for hundreds of years, but it is still not fully understood how it works, mainly because it is made up of so many different compounds.
Coal tar has mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects, and relieves itching. It is also absorbed into the skin cells and is thought to inhibit DNA replication in these cells. This slows down cell division and stops the cells from multiplying excessively. In turn, this reduces thickening and scaling of the skin.
Coal tar may also work by breaking down keratin, a protein that forms part of the skin structure. This helps the skin cells shed from the treated area, thus reducing the thickening and scaling.
Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo is used to treat scaly, itchy skin conditions affecting the scalp, such as psoriasis, eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis or dandruff.
The shampoo should be massaged into wet hair and the scalp for several minutes until a rich lather is produced. Rinse thoroughly then repeat the procedure.
For dandruff, you should use the shampoo once or twice a week as necessary, or as directed by your doctor.
For psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, or scaling and itching such as associated with eczema, use the shampoo every two to three days, or as directed by your doctor.
