A Selsun Blue Alternative.
Every now and then, a new product becomes available that could benefit our Tinea Versicolor skin condition. It only occurs seldomly because I suspect the large pharmaceutical companies consider ailments like ours too small a sector to exploit. So it is usually smaller companies that see a niche perhaps, and bring to market boutique style products.
One such company is Ontos Incorporated. Categorized as a patent medicines company, Ontos Inc. is a private company based in Washington State U.S.A.
Very recently I discovered and tried Noble Formula Shampoo for myself with positive results.
As a substitute for Noble Formula Soap which comes in the traditional form of a bar soap, the liquid shampoo is packaged in a spill-proof container that made it a logical choice for me as I was undertaking an extended travelling itinerary.
I use the shampoo all over my body as I do the soap, since it contains the potent anti-fungal concentration 2% pyrithione zinc. See the treatment page for full details of how I use this in my Tinea Versicolor regimen.
The only disadvantage I discover, is the fact that I deplete the shampoo sooner than a bar soap therefore making this option less cost effective. This is an acceptable price to pay for me personally, as I consider the spill-proof bottle much easier to travel with in my shaving kit, than a used bar of soap.
If you are a user of Selsun Blue Shampoo, and experience the regularly reported irritation of the Selenium Sulfide, or the frustration of it having no perceivable benefit in concentrations found over the counter, then this new product could be what you’ve been waiting for. Give it a try, and why not let us know how it works for you.
