Sooth­ing to the scalp

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

There are many types of scalp con­di­tions that vary from mild to se­vere. An itchy scalp is a com­mon prob­lem and can be caused by var­i­ous rea­sons.

Skin dis­eases such as pso­ri­a­sis, eczema and se­b­or­rheic der­mati­tis can also cause an itchy scalp.

dan­druff is the most com­mon. It is caused by an over­growth of fun­gus called Malassezia – a type of yeast – on the scalp. the re­sult is in an in­creased shed­ding and flak­ing of dead skin cells from the scalp.

Stress, poor diet and even al­ler­gic re­ac­tion to cer­tain foods can be re­spon­si­ble for ex­ces­sive build-up of dead skin cells. People with dan­druff may ex­pe­ri­ence red­ness, itch­i­ness and ir­ri­ta­tions on the scalp. the most se­vere form of dan­druff is re­ferred to as se­b­or­rheic der­mati­tis.

Scalp prob­lems are com­monly treated with med­i­cated sham­poo that con­tains ac­tive in­gre­di­ents such as zinc pyrithione, coal tar, se­le­nium sul­fide or sal­i­cylic acid. how­ever, the govern­ment has is­sued warn­ings to work­ers han­dling zinc pyrithione, as it is an ac­tive in­gre­di­ent in anti-foul­ing boat paints and pes­ti­cides. Yet it is used in many “Scalp Care” sham­poo.

MooGoo has been a pop­u­lar Aus­tralian brand spe­cial­is­ing in skin and per­sonal care prod­ucts made from chemical-free in­gre­di­ents.

MooGoo is strongly against us­ing chem­i­cals or harsh in­gre­di­ents that are dam­ag­ing to the skin, though the re­sults in treat­ing dan­druff is ef­fec­tive. MooGoo has de­vel­oped a range of hair care prod­ucts us­ing only nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents that are safe and gen­tle yet ef­fec­tive.
