|Composition||Salicylic acid 2%, Salix Alba extract 3% and sulfur 2%, ph: 7.|
The synergistic action of its keratolytic, keratoplastic and degreasing ingredients: salicylic acid, sulfur and Salix Alba, softens and eliminates the altered stratum corneum, facilitating the orderly growth of the cells of the basal layer of the epidermis and normalizing their subsequent keratinization.
How to use
The frequency of washing will depend on the intensity of the veterinarian's indications. Generally it is convenient to start with frequent baths, two or three times a week and gradually reduce the frequency. In cases of primary seborrhoea, the use of this shampoo should be continued at regular intervals to keep the dog's skin in optimal condition.
The canine seborrhoea
The term seborrhea, in canine dermatology, is applied to a syndrome characterized by an abnormal keratinization and a peeling of the surface of the epithelium of the skin, with visible scale formation, and which may or may not be accompanied by an abnormal activity of the glands sebaceous It can also present with irritation and inflammation of the skin, with the end result of altering the normal balance of the epidermis.
The process occurs in at least 10% of the canine population in general, being normally a secondary disorder, associated with hormonal disturbances, allergic nutritional abnormalities, environmental conditions, ecto and endo parasitism systemic diseases, etc. However, it may also be due to a hereditary tendency in some races such as the Cocker Spaniel or the Irish Setter, then being called primary or idiopathic seborrhea.
Types of seborrhea
In general, three forms of seborrhea can occur in varying degrees, and can coexist simultaneously in the same animal. They usually appear diffusely throughout the surface of the animal, although sometimes there are more intense local manifestations.
Frequent in Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Irish Setter and Schnauzer. It occurs most frequently at the beginning of adulthood, with excessive peeling on the neck, trunk, back and thighs. Although in the first instance the skin may appear dry and flaky, it feels oily and usually emits a characteristic odor.
Frequent in Cocker Spaniel, Springer Spaniel and Basset Hound. Oily, sometimes frankly oily, skin and hair, with scales and agglutination of hairs. It usually produces an intense smell of rancid fat.
It appears as a more severe variant of oily seborrhea, with inflamed, shaved skin areas, with frequent staphylococcal infection, hyperkeratinization and surrounded by an erythematous halo. It is mainly located in the external auditory canal, ventral part of the neck, belly, inguinal area and perineum. It occurs relatively frequently in the Cocker Spaniel.
It has multiple effects on the skin. It is a very effective keratolytic and keratoplastic agent, moderately antipruritic and also bacteriostatic. Its keratolytic effect is produced by reducing the density of the intercellular substance and lowering the pH of the skin, which increases the hydration of the stratum corneum and causes swelling and fall of its cells. Mixed with Salix Alba extract 3% produces an antiseborrhoeic effect by different mechanisms. It also has a certain direct anti-inflammatory effect.
In addition to being keratolytic and keratoplastic, it has an antifungal, antibacterial, antiparasitic and antipruritic action. Its keratoplastic effect is due to favor the formation of cystine, which is an important constituent of the stratum corneum of the skin. At the same time it produces the formation of hydrogen sulfide, responsible for its keratolytic effect, and pentathionic acid having both antifungal and antibacterial effects. There is synergism between its keratolytic effects and those of salicylic acid.
Salix Alba Extract
It is a new substance with a mechanism of action similar to that of pitch coal (coaltar) traditionally used in human and veterinary cosmetics. It has a great keratoplastic, antipruritic and degreasing power. Salix Alba extract has no drying or photosensitizing effect and the smell is softer than that of the coaltar
