MG217 Medicated Conditioning Shampoo is formulated with coal tar to help slow the rapid growth of skin cells on the scalp. Coal tar is the only non-prescription active ingredient that works by slowing down excessive cell reproduction. This reduces the inflammation, itching and scaling of psoriasis, dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. Our conditioning formula leaves hair clean, soft and manageable and helps prevent recurrence of psoriasis or dandruff symptoms. Controls symptoms of psoriasis/seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can this product be used on color-treated hair?

Yes. As long as it is used only twice a week as stated on the directions for use and they use their regular shampoo on days in between.

Why is there a warning on some of the products about containing chemicals known to the State of California to cause Cancer?

This warning pertains to coal tar, the active ingredient in a number of MG217 Psoriasis products, and is a requirement of the State of California. However, an expert advisory panel of the US FDA has recognized coal tar to be a safe and effective treatment for psoriasis when used as directed. The FDA does not share the opinion of the State of California that this warning should be present.

Do the MG217 Coal Tar products contain steroids?

No, they do not.
