Softening Psoriasis Shampoo | 100% natural, psoriasis care

From mounting five-star customer reviews, mentions in leading beauty or wellness magazines, and top industry awards, our collection of tinctures, ointments, creams and oils for skin prone to psoriasis is gaining a great reputation.

Now, following many requests, we were thrilled to recently expand this range with Softening Psoriasis Shampoo.

100% natural, our founder Mazin dermatologically designed this gentle yet effective beard and scalp shampoo with Chinese herbs renowned for helping swiftly heal psoriasis sores, clear dandruff and soothe scaly or inflamed skin. With customers already hailing these game-changing benefits, we thought it time this new bestseller - and its hero herbal extracts - took centre stage.

“I've had psoriasis for over 20 years. I've tried various products for the scalp and either they've not made a difference or have aggravated skin. I almost gave up trying, until now! This is my new essential! I've used it a few times and am amazed. Not only does it clear all the flakes entirely, it also feels very soothing. Amazing product! Thank you!”

Nature’s anti-stress scalp solution

Softening Psoriasis Shampoo’s purifying, soothing and softening qualities come from a botanical combination that includes Dong Chong Xia Cao (Cordyceps), Huang Qi, Ginseng and Ginger Extracts with Lavender Oil. Readers of our ‘Anti-stress skincare and adaptogens’ blog will already recognise a few of these names…

Our hero herb here is Cordyceps; known in Chinese Herbal Medicine as Dong Chong Xia Cao or ‘Winter insect summer herb’. Unique and very rare, this fungus is a known adaptogen - a smart herbal active that helps offset damage, restore balance and strengthen skin’s healthy condition. Cordyceps is a powerful antioxidant, used for thousands of years in Chinese Herbal Medicine to help create harmony by influencing how cells store and transfer energy while also enhancing oxygen utilisation. We apply it here specifically to help reduce plaque formation and inflammation while protecting skin from daily environmental exposure.

To boost our shampoo’s synergistic action, fellow adaptogens Huang Qi (aka Astragalus) and Ginseng are added, their precise extracts taken from the plant’s roots here in our own UK-based laboratory and included at an optimised concentration. Both these native Chinese botanicals are known for deeply soothing, purifying and strengthening - ideal for reducing the itch, heat or toxins associated with scalp or beard psoriasis, as well as similar symptoms in these areas as a result of eczema or dermatitis. Add to these circulation-boosting Ginger and detoxifying Lavender Oil, and the result is flake-free, calmer and noticeably healthier skin.

“I have had eczema for over 20 years, specifically seborrheic dermatitis. This is the first product that has ever topically been able to manage my symptoms. It has significantly increased the quality of my life and for this I am eternally grateful.”
