Seborrheic dermatitis is a particularly common skin condition that mainly affects the scalp, though it can also show up in oily areas of the body, such as the face, chest, and back. It can cause red skin, redness or crusting of the eyelids, itching or stinging, dandruff, and patches of greasy skin covered in white or yellow flakes or crust. Seborrheic dermatitis is usually long-term and follows the familiar cycle of flare-up and remission, leaving most sufferers fighting the condition off regularly throughout their lifetime. While it doesn’t necessarily affect your overall health, it can be uncomfortable, unsightly, and difficult to treat.
Treatment can be as mild as an over-the-counter shampoo or as severe as prescription creams, but they all have one thing in common—harsh chemicals. These chemicals can actually cause unnecessary irritation to your skin and scalp; they may even prove detrimental to your overall health in the long run. That is why pHat 5.5’s line of seborrheic dermatitis products are made without any of these potentially harmful substances, like parabens, sulfates, alcohol, petroleum, fragrance, and gluten.
Instead, we use a variety of “superfoods,” incredible ingredients from nature, to make our products both effective and healthy. Included amongst these superfoods are manuka honey, aloe vera, and cehami. Retaining qualities possessed by the manuka bush, manuka honey is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. This is all in addition to being anti-inflammatory, containing antioxidants, and being such a powerful healer that it has been approved for medical use in hospitals to treat wounds. Aloe vera is incredibly effective at soothing irritated or damaged skin, with its moisturizing and powerful anti-inflammatory qualities. And, being loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, it packs quite the nutritious punch straight to the skin and scalp. The Australian botanical called cehami is also very moisturizing and anti-inflammatory, but it reduces itching and irritation, while simultaneously promoting skin cell regeneration, as well. These amazing ingredients form the base of pHat 5.5’s seborrheic dermatitis skin and hair care products, making use of nature’s gifts to effectively heal and nourish.
Last, but not least, all products are carefully pH balanced to match the native level of the skin and scalp: 5.5. Many other products out there leave their products much too alkaline—this can aggravate the skin or even cause mild burns. Making sure the pH of the products and skin are the same ensures that the skin’s natural protector, the acid mantle, remains intact. It also means less irritation and a better environment for healing to take place in.
pHat 5.5’s products are designed to heal and nourish in every way. Made with only natural and organic ingredients, you no longer have to worry about what you’re putting on your skin. Instead, simply let our products do their job to gently sooth your symptoms and, at the same time, reveal the healthy, beautiful skin and hair nature intended.
