What is Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and what is it used for?
Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is designed to treat and relieve symptoms of seborrhoeic dermatitis, dandruff, tinea versicolor and pityriasis versicolor. Most sufferers of these conditions have a lack of yeast balance on the scalp. Nizoral actively fights this condition, deals with itchy, flaky scalp and associate inflammation. It also prevents these symptoms from returning.
The active ingredient in Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is ketoconazole, an antifungal, anti-yeast medication that is used to treat certain skin conditions, including dandruff. This shampoo is manufactured by Thornton and Ross and is suitable for use by adults and children over the age of 12 years.
How does Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo work?
Nizoral shampoo contains Ketoconazole that worked by binding to the hair’s natural protein and destroys fungi and yeasts by preventing them from producing a substance called ergosterol, an essential component of fungal cell membranes. This disrupts the fungal cell membrane, causing holes to appear in it and allowing essential cell components to leak out. This kills the fungi and clears up the infection, keeping dandruff and its associated symptoms at bay.
