Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo – 250ml


Checked By

What is Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo?

Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo is a treatment that is intended to provide relief for the effects of dry scalp conditions such as seborrhoeic eczema (red, itchy, scaly skin) and cases of severe dandruff. This shampoo works thanks to the active ingredient that is contained in the shampoo, benzalkonium. This is what is called a surfactant. This loosens any dead skin and removes it and also provides mild antiseptic properties, as some bacteria can make the condition worse.


What causes dandruff?

Dandruff is something that can affect anyone. It is a condition where skin from the scalp becomes loose and ends up in the hair. This is as a result of skin production happening too quickly which can be the result of a number of different conditions, which include:

  • Seborrhoeic eczema/dermatitis
  • Tinea capitis – A fungal infection in the scalp
  • Eczema
  • Allergic dermatitis
  • Psoriasis

Dandruff is not caused by poor hygiene, but that can be a factor in the severity of the condition.


Who is this shampoo suitable for?

This shampoo is suitable to be used by adults and children. It should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the shampoo. Even though there is no evidence of any problems, you should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using if you are using any other form of medication.


Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this shampoo?

There should be no problems when using this shampoo when pregnant or breastfeeding. Though if unsure, consult the advice of a medical professional before using.


How should Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo be used?

This shampoo can be used daily if it is necessary to do so until your condition gets better. To use this shampoo, apply a generous amount to wet hair and then massage it into the scalp thoroughly using the tips of the fingers. Leave the shampoo on for a few minutes, remove as much lather off with the hands as possible and then rinse it off. Repeat the process and then dry the hair as normal.


Are there any side effects?

There is a chance of side effects when using this shampoo, though it is rare. A skin reaction can occur as a result of an allergic reaction. The scalp condition can also get worse when using this shampoo because of a reaction. If you notice a side effect, stop using and speak to a doctor as soon as possible. You can also record a side effect that you notice using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
