Selenium disulfide (SeS2) is a unique targeted agent that effectively fights the causes of dandruff formation, reduces its manifestations and prevents reappearance.
Selenium disulfide has antifungal, cytostatic and keratolytic effects, slows down the growth of hyperproliferative cells in seborrhea and seborrheic dermatitis. The component has antimicrobial activity, destroys the environment favorable for excessive reproduction of the yeast fungus, restores the normal activity of the skin secretion. Active molecules of selenium disulfide block the division and reproduction of pathogenic fungi Malassezia, normalize the exfoliation of dead cells of the epidermis, and, as a result, reduce the manifestations of dandruff and prevent its appearance.
Indications for the use of drugs with selenium disulfide: dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis.
Contraindications: pregnancy, lactation, individual intolerance to the components.
Precautions: avoid contact with eyes and damaged skin. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water. Keep out of the reach of children.
Dandruff is the result of a combination of causes, which is characterized by an accelerated process of exfoliation of skin particles, usually on the scalp. During normal functioning of the body, the renewal of skin cells occurs every 28 days, while the old cells remain on the surface of the skin as dead keratinized scales. Usually these scales are invisible, but the use of low-quality hair care products, hereditary predisposition, stress and illness can lead to the activation of pathogenic fungi and too frequent cell renewal, as a result, to the appearance of a large amount of dandruff.
