How it works
Dithranol slows down the excessive production of skin cells and relieves the symptoms of psoriasis. Salicylic acid softens and loosens the dry, scaly, or thickened skin, which causes shedding of the outer layer of the skin. Coal tar normalizes the process of cell growth in the skin. It softens the outer layer of the skin as well as any scales on the skin. It also inhibits the growth of bacteria.
