The Gift of Healthy Skin for Father’s Day

This Father’s Day, we celebrate the men in our lives who deserve the very best products for healthy skin and hair. We want them to let their locks flow and to keep their beards and mustaches looking their absolute best.

If they do happen to have facial hair or a beard, not only are they fashionable, they likely brush and trim to keep it looking tidy and stylish. However, did you know that men with facial hair are prone to a fungus called Malassezia? More commonly found in scalp conditions, Malassezia appears to also play a central role in the progression of beard dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. A beard provides the fungus with protection from the sun and traditional cleansers, causing the fungus to securely attach to the skin and to produce a protective barrier called a biofilm. Recent research from the National Institute of Health has indicated that the persistence of biofilms may be linked with aggravating the symptoms associated with common scalp and skin conditions, such as dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis.

Harsh shampoos typically used on the scalp, such as those containing ingredients like Coal Tar, Pyrithione Zinc, Sulfur, Selenium Sulfide, or Salicylic Acid are never recommended for facial hair as they can irritate the skin underneath. Shampoos that contain ingredients like sulfates, parabens, and silicone may lather well, but they can also cause irritation to your skin.

All of our DermaKB™ products, including our Scalp Detoxifier, Shampoo and Shampoo Bar, are scientifically formulated with our patented coactiv+™ technology to weaken and break down the biofilm structure and to eliminate product buildup. Our products leave scalp and hair, including beards, looking and feeling their best – without any harsh chemicals or excessive foam and bubbles. They are all optimally pH balanced as well as fragrance-free, sulfate-free, and paraben-free.

For beards and facial hair in particular, DermaKB™ Shampoo Bars provide the same scalp and skin care as our liquid products but are as easy to use as a traditional bar of soap. They are the ultimate space-saver for any home and it’s easy to see when you are running low. Our Shampoo Bars come in a convenient pack of four full-size bars, so your special guy can plan ahead and put an extra bar in their gym bag or carry-on when traveling. They don’t need to worry about the shampoo cap being left open and making a mess in their suitcase or toiletry kit ever again.

So, this Father’s Day, celebrate the special men in your life with a simple solution to their hair and skincare needs. Nothing complicated, just the gift of a clean scalp and healthy facial hair with our DermaKB™ Shampoo Bar.
