The Pinetarsol range is intended to be skin cleansers (as soap alternatives) for itchy and inflammed skin. These may occur in conditions such as dermatitis, hives, eczema, sunburn, insect bite, nappy rash and psoriasis. Pine tar which is the key ingredient in Pinetarsol helps to reduce itch and inflammation while gently cleansing the skin without stripping its natural oils, thereby minimizing skin irritations typical of conventional soaps. It is not photo-sensitizing (increase sensitivity to sunlight) unlike coal tar. Soap-free.
