What is Cocois Coconut Oil Scalp Application? 

Cocois Coconut Oil Scalp Application is an effective topical treatment for dry and scaly scalp conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and dandruff. It contains the active ingredients coal tar, salicylic acid and sulphur, which work together to relieve itchiness, prevent infection and to buff away the hard scaling of skin to leave your scalp flake and irritation free.

How to use this product

Always use Cocois Coconut Oil Scalp Application exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. If your scalp condition is severe, use this product daily until your symptoms improve. With mild scaliness, use when necessary, like once per week. 

To use, attach the scalp applicator to the threaded portion of the tube and part your hair into thin sections. Apply a small ribbon of Cocois to the affected areas on your scalp. Then, gently rub the product into your scalp and leave it in for about an hour, ensuring that you wash the product from your hands as it can stain clothes and irritate the eyes and mouth. After one hour, rinse the Cocois from your hair with warm water, being cautious to avoid contact with your eyes.

What causes a dry, scaly scalp?

A dry, scaly scalp is a troublesome problem. You’re battling against the irritating itching and embarrassment when someone points out the white flakes dusting your shoulders. A dry scalp can cause dandruff or it might be caused from a long-standing condition like psoriasis or eczema. Although the latter can’t be cured, there are treatments like Cocois Coconut Oil to relieve any dry scalp concerns.

Is Cocois Coconut Oil suitable for children? 

Cocois Coconut Oil is suitable for children age 6 and over under medical advice. It’s not recommended as a treatment for children under the age of 6. If your child requires a treatment for a dry and scaly scalp, speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice on alternative treatments.

Is Cocois Coconut Oil suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women? 

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, you must ask your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice before using any new medicine. Cocois Coconut Oil shouldn’t be used if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. If you need a dry scalp treatment, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice on alternative treatments.

Cocois Coconut Oil may be unsuitable for certain people. Don’t smoke or go near naked flames while using this product as it can cause serious burns.

Seek emergency medical attention if you notice any signs of a severe allergic reaction, symptoms of which include swelling of the face and throat, skin rash, breathing difficulties and/or loss of consciousness.
