Is pHat Dermatitis Cream good?

The fatty acids excreted from the skin’s sebaceous glands sweat in order to create the skin’s pH, which ideally should be slightly acidic – at about 5.5.This product is specially formulated at pH 5.5.

When a product PH is too alkaline, the skin becomes dry and sensitive; you may even experience severe irritation. The active ingredients in the cream include Manuka honey, aloe, shea butter, blue-green algae, coconut oil and hempseed oil, which are very appropriate for application on very sensitive skin and also have calming properties.

Bad news about Seborrheic Dermatitis Cream is that the effect will not come immediately – it can take up to 2 months. Most of the reviews posted by patients are very encouraging:

As expected, there are patients who are very disappointed with their purchase. The cream doesn’t work equally well for everyone. Some of them did not see any improvement even after a long-term application.
