Product Database

Have you ever wondered:

Is this safe for seborrheic dermatitis?

I have. Plenty of times. Then I squint at the ingredient list and do a dozen google searches, misspelling half the names as I go along. Half an hour later, I sometimes have my answer. Sometimes I don’t. But what a pain it is.

I’ve done this so many times now that I can do it in my sleep. However, I get that most people don’t have the time nor the inclination to do their due diligence.

That’s why I decided to do the work for you.

This is a list of products that are safe for seborrheic dermatitis.

A product is considered SAFE if it doesn’t contain any ingredients that are known to aggravate seborrheic dermatitis.

If a product contains a small amount of ingredients that may potentially cause a flare, it’s marked as MAYBE.

If a product is totally not safe for seb derm, it’s marked NO WAY.

Please note that it doesn’t take into account individual skin sensitivities, allergies or preference for natural products.

*Whether a product is deemed safe or not is my personal opinion based on the ingredient list. It’s not backed by trials.

If you don’t see your product of interest listed here, check back again next week. Even better, email me with your suggestion:
