About Alphosyl Shampoo 2-in-1

Alphosyl 2 in 1 is a herbal fragrance shampoo for the treatment of Psoriasis, Seborrhoeic dermatitis, Eczema, Itching scalp, and Dandruff.

The active ingredient is an alcoholic extract of coal tar, which relieves itching and is an anti-scaling agent which helps breakdown keratin.  

Dry skin conditions can be caused by many different factors, including certain temperatures, food sensitivities or stress. Individuals who tend to suffer from dry skin do so due to water loss from the skin and reduced resistance to irritant substances.
