Mellis Cap is a special adjuvant shampoo based on natural substances that act on the scalp to eliminate scales and reduce redness and itchiness.
Mellis Cap contains:
- Ichthyol: is a derivate of mineral tars made up of fossilised aquatic organisms. It strongly reduces excessive skin flaking;
- Sichuan pepper, or mountain pepper, has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It contains a precious active ingredient (Zanthalene) which is effective in reducing the signs of hypersensitive skin such as itchiness;
- Honeydew Honey: is a particular type of honey with important hydrating and softening properties. It helps to keep the scalp soft and protected, and to reduce irritation;
- Mandelic Acid: is an organic acid found in bitter almonds. It is widely used in both the cosmetic and dermatology fields because of its keratolytic properties. It dissolves horny plaques and assists in the elimination of scales.
