Seborrheic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a skin condition that appears on the scalp. It causes the skin on the scalp to become red and scaly and develop greasy patches, often resulting in dandruff. It affects the scalps of babies as well but is then commonly referred to as cradle cap.

Cradle cap symptoms usually disappear by the time a child is three butare often chronic in adults suffering from seborrheic dermatitis. This skin problem is not just very uncomfortable, it is often quite unsightly as well. It is important to reiterate this problem is not caused by poor hygiene but is a hereditary condition.

Pure Squalan can relieve the itching experienced on the scalp. Simply massage the oil into your scalp and then wrap a warm, moist towel around your head. Allow the oil to soak into your scalp for half an hour and then rinse it off with water. Then wash your hair as you normally would. You will instantly notice a difference in the way your scalp feels: it will not be as irritated and the skin will feel less tight.

People suffering from seborrheic dermatitis need to be very careful about the types of shampoos they use, as some ingredients will aggravate itching and irritation on the scalp. We recommend purchasing a hypoallergenic shampoo.
