Treatment for the scalp

The best treatment for the scalp should avoid: itchiness, redness, flakes, irritation and excessive hair loss. Also, effective ingredients play an important role. Ingredients that Neofollics uses in their scalp treatment are:

  • Ketoconazole; this is an ingredient that is effective in various infections such as seborrheic eczema. It is a well-known and often used remedy.
  • Piroctone Olamine; has the same effect as ketoconazole and is very effective against seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff. In some aspects, Piroctone Olamine scores better than ketoconazole.
  • Climbazole; this is an anti-fungal and has the same effect as Ketoconazole and Piroctone olamine. It is very effective against itching, burning sensation, and flaking of the scalp.
  • Panax Ginseng; is a herb that has health purposes for your scalp and hair. It has health effects in the anagen phase where new hair forms and in the catagen phase, where the growth of the follicles delays.
