Mode of Action


Seleen shampoo has an inhibitory action on skin cell proliferation, thus reducing corneocyte production (corneocytes are dead skin cells that are responsible for flaky skin). It also prevents excessive secretions of sebum, which is responsible for oily skin. Seleen is therefore effective for both wet (oily) and dry (flaky) seborrheas.

It has the following properties:


-  Keratolytic - removes the dead flaky skin, reducing scale and making skin feel softer

-  Keratoplastic –  helps to slow down skin proliferation, thereby reducing scale production

-  Antibacterial

-  Antifungal

-  Anti parasitic

-  Anti sporicidal
