White Ichthammol, the effective agent of the IchtyoCare preparations by Dr. Müller Pharma, is a light form of sulphonated slate oil. While ammonia is used for the neutralization of common dark ichthammol, and the final product contains a not negligible amount of ammonia, white ichthammol is neutralized by sodium ions which aren’t so alien to our bodies and do not contain any free base that can irritate the skin.
The advantage, then, is better solubility in water, a higher degree of purity, lighter colour and better dermatological tolerance. It is also more active against fungi and yeasts which are one of the causes of dandruff.

IchthyoCare Antidandruff Shampoo

Owing to its beneficial effect the shampoo with white ichthammol is recommended for care of the scalp in case of excess sebum production, itching and increased formation of dandruff.
It is also effective as a supportive agent in psoriasis of the scalp.

Use: Apply an adequate amount of the shampoo on wet hair and massage the skin of the scalp untill foam is formed. Let the shampoo act for some time. Then wash your hair and skin thoroughly. To reach the optimum effect, the Ichthammol shampoo should be applied 2 – 3 times a week for the period of about 4 to 6 weeks. Regular use of the Ichthammol shampoo once in a week is then recommended.
