It's very challenging to find a psoriasis shampoo on the market today that doesn't contain harmful chemicals and fragrances.
Here are some ideas for creating your own natural shampoo for psoriasis with highly effective ingredients that are safe and non-toxic!
People with sensitive skin are especially frustrated at times trying to figure out a natural remedy for their scalp psoriasis due to the lack of products for this skin condition. However, there are many natural remedies that can and do work for people with scalp psoriasis.
This is a skin condition characterized by either very light scaling on the scalp or thick, crust-like areas that cover the scalp underneath the hair. It can also spread to other facial areas such as the forehead or to the ears and sometimes the neck. It can be an embarrassing skin condition, especially when you're not sure how to treat it properly.
It is a hereditary disease for some, but for others can be caused by high levels of stress, changes in hormonal levels, or when the immune system has undergone a great deal of stress.
Psoriasis is not a curable condition, but it can be managed well if you are diligent about proper hair hygiene and are willing to try natural remedies for the condition.
Most people head straight to the physician to see what can be done with the scaly skin on the scalp. Your physician may recommend steroid liniments or medicated shampoos. However, these are often too harsh for people with sensitive skin. Is it possible to find a more natural shampoo for psoriasis?

As mentioned previously, it is difficult for people with sensitive skin to find a shampoo specifically for psoriasis that doesn't contain harmful chemicals, sulfates, and other harmful substances. There is however a way around that challenge!
First, start with Cleure shampoo . These products are completely toxin free and contain no harsh chemicals, including SLS. This shampoo works really well to create shiny and healthy hair. (I use this myself, you can see my "before" and "after" pictures at our hypoallergenic shampoo page.)

The Cleure Emu Oil is a pure and potent form of this very powerful natural anti-inflammatory oil which is used to bring relief to many inflammatory skin problems including psoriasis.
If you prefer vegetable based oils, you can try out some different natural psoriasis remedies to add to your psoriasis shampoo. It's always best to start with ONE ingredients at a time so see how your skin reacts.
