Quick Overview

Polytar plus shampoo 500ml


Polytar plus shampoo is indicated for the treatment of scalp disorders such as psoriasis, dandruff, seborrhoea dermatitis, itching, eczema and pruritus. This shampoo is also useful in the removal of ointments and pastes used in the treatment of psoriasis. This medicine is a medicated shampoo that is used to clear and reduce the build-up of skin scales that occurs in these conditions.


Polytar plus shampoo contains tar blend that consists of pine tar, cade oil, coal tar solution and arachis oil extract of coal tar. Coal tar has mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects, and relieves itching. It is also absorbed into the skin cells and is thought to inhibit DNA replication in these cells. This slows down cell division and stops the cells from multiplying excessively. In turn, this reduces thickening and scaling of the skin.


Coal tar may also work by breaking down keratin, a protein that forms part of the skin structure. This helps the skin cells shed from the treated area, thus reducing the thickening and scaling.
