Cocois Coconut Compound Oil - 40g

How does Cocois work?

This preparation contains coal tar, salicylic acid and precipitated sulphur. Coal tar is mildly antiseptic and relieves itching. It also acts as a keratolytic which works to break down a protein which forms part of the skin structure called keratin. Skin cells are thickened due to the deposition of keratin. Coal tar therefore helps to reduce the excessive hardening, thickening and scaling of the skin.

Salicylic acid and sulphur also act as a keratolytics, which result in the shedding of skin cells from the affected area. Sulphur also has a mild antiseptic and antifungal action.

This preparation is used to treat psoriasis, eczema, dandruff and an inflammatory scalp condition known as seborrhoeic dermatitis.
