Dandruff, Flaking, Eczema, and Psoriasis
Disclaimer: Sport-Wash Hair and Body Soap also sold as Sensi-Clean Shampoo and body gel contains no regulated ingredients for the treatment of Dandruff, Flaking, Eczema, or Psoriasis.
It can however make the products you use to treat these conditions much more effective.
Medications, treatments, and indeed all personal care products are impeded by residues on the skin and hair. Residue, whether from inadequate cleansing or a remnant of the cleaner or another product, can have unintended consequences. It is first of all a barrier. It can prevent good cleaning, good air and moisture transfer, proper dispersion of chemicals excreted by the skin, and also prevent medication from contacting or penetrating the skin and hair. Residue also holds odor, feeds bacteria, and can suck moisture out of the skin and hold it on the surface.
Complete residue-free cleaning with Sensi-Clean Shampoo and Body Gel or Sport-Wash Hair and Body Soap is the only way to assure that your expensive medications, rinses or shampoos have a chance to reach their intended target. Always wash with Sensi-Clean Shampoo and Body Gel or Sport-Wash Hair and Body Gel and rinse before using medicated products.
The importance of residue-free-cleansing cannot be overstated. It will make other personal care products such as conditioners, moisturizers, and fragrance more effective and more predictable with lighter applications.
Keep in mind that the perfumee, chemicals, essential oils and fad ingredients found in ordinary personal care products and the residues of laundry detergent and fabric solutions are the most common sources of skin irritation. You may benefit by minimizing the use of perfumed personal care products and also washing all your clothes in residue-free Sport-Wash or Sensi-Clean Laundry Detergent. In some cases such as MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) medications become major irritants. The body can also become reactive to its own debris. For such individuals residue-free cleansing of the hair and body and the use of residue-free laundry detergent without fabric softener will be the only relief.
Fortunately, for many of us, our flaking scalp is not dandruff but simply the result of poor cleansing with shampoos that deposit more than they remove. In these cases you will find that when a residue-free cleansing routine is established, the need for medicated products will disappear.
