A Solution Without Side Effects: DermaKB™ shampoo and detoxifier help relieve seborrheic dermatitis symptoms

Ontario resident Jessica Williams has finally found a product that helps with the symptoms associated with her seborrheic dermatitis, a skin condition that affects approximately five percent of the world’s population.

“I just wanted to say thank you for DermaKB™,” said Williams in an email to Kane Biotech Inc. “I’ve tried for years with no luck to manage seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp and neck. I’ve used your shampoo and scalp detoxifier for a few weeks and couldn’t be happier. Early days I guess, but I am completely symptom free.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, seborrheic dermatitis is “a common skin condition that mainly affects your scalp. It causes scaly patches, red skin, and stubborn dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect oily areas of the body, such as the face, sides of the nose, eyebrows, ears, eyelids, and chest.”

The 40-year-old Williams has battled her skin condition since her early twenties and had tried everything she could find before discovering the DermaKB™ products on a Facebook ad.

“I’ve tried diets, all natural shampoos, prescriptions with terrible side effects and antifungals with lots of warnings that scared me,” said Williams. “The results would be temporary, if at all. My condition would always flare up again. It would resolve sometimes, but other times it would flare up so badly it was all over my face.”

Williams has experienced several symptoms with her skin condition, some more bothersome than others, and each of which affects her quality of life to some degree.

“Sometimes it’s just the itchiness that can’t be relieved by anything,” said Williams. “Other times I would just hate to get my hair or my skin wet, which irritates the condition a lot more, as does the hot and humid weather we have here. Occasionally it would be very visible, and it looked sore. That would be the worst, because then I’d have to explain to people what was wrong. It’s not something you can really cover up with makeup.”

Williams found that her skin condition impacted her daily life and limited activities that she had always enjoyed, due to symptoms that had plagued her for decades without any significant relief.

“We have a pool, and I wouldn’t use it very often because my skin would become so uncomfortable when it was moist,” said Williams. “It seems ridiculous that your skin would become itchy when it gets wet, but it does. The condition really does impact the little things in your life that you would like to participate in.”

Williams said she was never sure what might cause her condition to flare up. Was it stress, something she ate, the product she used, the weather? For her, the worst part was that nobody seemed to really understand her condition very well.

“I did go to a dermatologist,” said Williams. “And they were quick to just write a prescription. To me, it almost feels like they don’t care about this type of condition that much, because it can affect your quality of life, but it’s not life threatening.

“The medication was a really thick ointment, which wasn’t great for putting in your hair. And it was listed as having all kinds of terrible side effects. The worst being a higher risk of getting skin cancer and other things. That didn’t seem like it would be a very good trade-off.”

Before finding success with DermaKB™ shampoo and detoxifier, Williams said she had bought every product she could find in the dandruff isle at the drugstore, with limited success. Some would work for a little while and then just stop working. She also tried specialized diets without success.

“I’ve tried a million different diets,” said Williams “I’ve tried elimination diets where you’re pretty much not eating anything. No eggs, no dairy, no red meat, and then you slowly add them back in. Nothing worked, just like everything else I tried.”

Until DermaKB™.

Williams has been using the DermaKB™ shampoo and detoxifier for over a month now, after reading about its primarily natural method of breaking down biofilms — the culprit that hinders the remedy of many common skin conditions.

“I’m not a scientist, but I’ve read the DermaKB™ information about how and why it works,” said Williams. “I’ve certainly never seen anything else that takes this approach. And it’s mostly natural, which is a huge plus, because a lot of the other options are not particularly good for you. I mean, they don’t work very well and they’re not safe.

“The DermaKB™ product is unbelievable. It does what it says it will do and it doesn’t come with all the negatives the other products have. I get the occasional itchiness, but nothing like before. And I don’t have to change my whole diet and my whole life.

“I’m just so happy it works.”

Second-Time Lucky. Biofilms Research Leads to Relief of Folliculitis Symptoms.

Retired Service Manager David E. searched everywhere for a solution to his folliculitis condition. His research and perseverance finally paid off.

He found a product that works.

“I’ve had folliculitis for 15-20 years,” said David, who resides in the warm climate of the southeastern U.S. “I’ve tried everything from antibiotics to antimicrobials without success. I’ve been going to a dermatologist my whole life. They prescribe antibiotics, but they’re expensive, and as soon as you stop using them the problem comes back, so I decided to do more research.”

What is Folliculitis?

Folliculitis is a common skin condition that occurs when a hair follicle becomes infected or inflamed. Most often caused by Staphylococcus aureus (staph) bacteria, it can also be caused by viruses and fungi. Generally uncomfortable and itchy, folliculitis can also have a psychosocial impact due to its appearance, which is similar to acne. Many people spend years looking for a satisfactory remedy, just as David did.

Discovering Biofilms

“This time I really knuckled down to try to get rid of it,” said David. “I found a few communities online about folliculitis that were extremely helpful, one on Facebook and the other on Reddit. That’s where I learned about the formation of biofilms and how they build a sticky structure over the bacteria that can prevent you from getting rid of conditions like folliculitis. It sounded like there was something to it based on the science, so I Googled it.”

David’s search led him to discover DermaKB shampoo and scalp detoxifier, which uses primarily natural and naturally derived ingredients to eliminate biofilms and help reduce the symptoms associated with common skin conditions.

“I thought it would be worth a try,” said David. “I ordered it and tried it for a few weeks, but I didn’t see any difference, so I put it back in my closet and basically forgot about it. I just thought, ‘Well there goes another one.’ But I had these bumps that kept forming, so I decided to give it another try, leaving it on longer.”

Second-Time Lucky!

“When I first used it, I only left the detoxifier on for 10 minutes,” said David. “It can get hot where I live, and I have oily skin, so this time I prewashed my hair with the shampoo and let it dry. Then I put the detox on and really worked it into my scalp. I left it on for 30 minutes and it was like ‘Wow!’ I could feel the difference. I mean, I could really feel it working. Instantly.

“I went back to the DermaKB page on biofilms to see if I could figure out what it was doing, how it was breaking down the biofilms, so I could better understand what I was feeling. It made an incredible difference, and it’s still working.”

Safety Questions Answered

Because he was leaving the detoxifier on longer than indicated in the instructions, David decided to email DermaKB creator Kane Biotech Inc. and ask if it was safe to leave it on for longer than the recommended 10 minutes. He received a reply back from Dr. Gordon Guay, Chief Scientific Officer at Kane Biotech.

“I just want to confirm for you that leaving the products on your skin for 30 minutes is completely safe,” said Guay. “Our coactiv+ technology is based on a patented formula of chelating agents that disperse biofilms and are regarded by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe).

“They have also been confirmed as safe through HRIPT (Human Repeat Insult Patch Test) testing and the Canadian Dermatology Association has evaluated our detoxifier as meeting the criteria of its Skin Health Program. So, depending on the severity of your condition and how long you’ve had it, the longer the resonance time the better. It is also acceptable to use our products on other body parts. Just be sure to follow any warnings identified on product labels.”

Tickled with Results

David plans to keep using a combination of the DermaKB shampoo and scalp detoxifier until he finds the perfect complementary use match.

“The product is easy to use, it doesn’t look medicinal at all, and there’s no smell,” said David. “I just gave it clean, dry skin to work on, and left it on for that little extra time. Maybe the biofilms had just built up to the point where they were impenetrable. All I know is that since I’ve been using it, everything has improved tremendously.

“I’m just tickled with the results.”

DermaKB Shampoo gives retiree Hallelujah Moment! Scalp itchiness gone after 20 years, dandruff all but disappears!

Rina Grasman had all but given up on finding a treatment for her itchy, dry scalp and dandruff problems after two decades of searching, but a chance decision resulted in an amazingly quick cure for the silver-haired 71-year-old from Vancouver Island.

“I saw an ad for DermaKB shampoo on Instagram,” said Grasman. “I was a bit skeptical at first. I thought it would just be another product that didn’t do what it said it would do. But I read a couple of positive reviews and after seeing the price for the Starter Kit, thought what did I have to lose, so I ordered it.”

Grasman opened her DermaKB Starter Kit as soon as it arrived.

Hallelujah Moment!

“I actually went and washed my hair right away,” said Grasman. “Later that day I thought something felt different and I realized I wasn’t scratching my scalp anymore. I was literally gobsmacked. There was no way it could be working that quick, but it was. That was pretty significant. It was a Hallelujah moment!

“I had instant, instant results. The itching stopped almost immediately. And the additional benefits I noticed a few weeks later were that my scalp dryness was reduced, and I didn’t have the amount of dandruff I had before. I’m not saying I’m dandruff free, but darn close to it.”

At first, Grasman used the shampoo and detoxifier every day. She still uses the shampoo daily, but only uses the detoxifier twice a week now.

“I’ve been using it for a month and I’m just maintaining now,” said Grasman. “But you know, my hair feels nice and clean. My scalp feels nice and clean. And I don’t notice any negative impact on my hair quality or anything. It just feels nice.”

Grasman’s results were similar to those found in a consumer trial of DermaKB shampoo and detoxifier, in which 85% of 1,402 respondents reported a reduction in itchiness, and 83% reported a reduction in dandruff, among other physical improvements. In Grasman’s case there were also social and psychological benefits.

Total % of participants who rated their symptom before trial as Extreme (“5”) or Severe (“4”), and who identified an improvement in their symptom after using the products – with a rating of Moderate (“3”), Mild (“2”), or None (“1”).

No More Embarrassing Moments

“Nobody likes to have dandruff sitting on their shoulders,” said Grasman. “Especially if you’re wearing black, which is one of my favourite colours. You brush your hair or take your hand and flick your hair and you’re flaking all over. There are no more embarrassing moments now.

“And it was scratchy, it was like being a dog with fleas. When you scratch like that, obviously skin becomes loose, and it compounds the problem. You’re creating an irritated area and reinfecting yourself.”

20 Years of Searching

Grasman developed her scalp problem over 20 years ago and has never asked a doctor about treatments. She initially thought some other health issues might have contributed to her condition, but doesn’t know for sure.

Prior to her success with DermaKB shampoo, Grasman had searched for and tried most of the over-the-counter products without success.

“There’s so much BS around a lot of stuff,” said Grasman. “It just doesn’t live up to the promises they make. I didn’t buy the cheapest products or the most expensive ones. I just bought what I thought were good, solid products. I hoped they would do the job, but some of them were downright nasty. They smell terrible, some of them have tar and other chemicals in them, you pay quite a bit for them, and they don’t work.”

Safe and Suitable for Daily Use

In contrast to Grasman’s previous purchases, the ingredients in DermaKB shampoo and detoxifier are designated GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and suitable for daily use. The products contain natural ingredients such as Colloidal oatmeal and Burdock root extract, which have soothing effects, as well as D-Panthenol and Allantoin, which help condition and soften the hair.

“I’ve known other people with severe skin conditions or breakouts, and it just kind of sucks the life out of them,” said Grasman. “You’d think a medical professional could solve their problems, but they haven’t been able to. I think it’s important for people to really understand biofilms, how they make skin and scalp conditions tough to fight against, and how they can get rid of them. DermaKB is the only shampoo I’ve found that works.”

DermaKB Does What It Said It Would Do

Grasman was ecstatic to discover a product that does what it said it would do, and a company that had done their research into a scalp problem that affects millions of people.

“I’m just thrilled,” said Grasman. “I can’t give high enough marks to Kane Biotech. And I love that they’re a Canadian company. When you have this kind of results so quickly, it’s like, wow!

“For me, personally, it’s been amazing.”
