Description

M-Folia Scalp Oil is specifically formulated to heal and soothe irritated skin on the scalp, experienced by sufferers of scalp psoriasis and other related skin conditions.

As with other psoriasis treatments in the M-Folia range, its main active ingredient is a pure fluid extract of Mahonia Aquifolium. This is sometimes known as ‘Oregon grape’ and it has several qualities that are known to ease the symptoms of psoriasis: it is a strong antimicrobial and antifungal agent and also works as an antioxidant on the skin.

This combines with the moisturising and soothing effect of a blend of aromatherapy oils, such as tea tree, chamomile, cedarwood and ylang ylang. These give the oil powerful healing qualities for dry scalp skin conditions, which can also help to reduce the problem of dandruff.

Unlike many psoriasis shampoos and scalp treatments, this product contains no coal tar.

Directions

For best results, leave this oil on the scalp for around 15 minutes, before washing out with a shampoo free of skin irritants. It may be left on overnight, but do not exceed 8 hours without rinsing the oil off.

Precautions

Store M-Folia Scalp Oil in a cool, dark place, away from children. Use it within 12 weeks of opening.

The oil is designed for use on the scalp only. Avoid contact with the eyes. In the event of accidental contact, flush it out with clean water.

Check the ingredients for any known hypersensitivities. When using for the first few times, there may be a reaction on the skin, such as redness or excessive dryness and flaking. This is not uncommon, especially if steroidal treatments have been used recently. If it persists beyond a week, consult a medical professional.

Side Effects

There are no side effects of using M-Folia Scalp Oil, except a possible initial skin reaction when first using. No interactions with other medications are noted.
