Emolienta Scalp: a new, fast and lasting solution for itchy scalp


An itchy scalp is one of the most common reasons for consulting a dermatologist: up to 44.2% of the population suffers from it, with it being more frequent in women. It can be a mild to severe itch, some also define it as a burning or stinging sensation, tightness or even pain.

The causes can be very varied, sometimes associated with psoriasis or dermatitis, but there is often no specific reason behind the onset of this disorder. Even so, there are several factors that recur in many of the patients who suffer from this problem. In many cases the frequency of hair washing, using a shampoo that is too aggressive or overusing the hair-dryer are the reasons behind this itching. Other reasons are related to external protection; both the cold and the heat affect the skin and the scalp is rarely protected by special products for this purpose. This is without mentioning the impact of pollution on our health!

Last but not least, we should highlight the impact that stress has on the skin and scalp, by extension. Overexertion, a heavy workload or a personal problem can weaken the skin barrier and problems such as itchy scalp often appear.

A vicious circle

Whatever the reason, when the protective barrier of the scalp is weakened and is disturbed, it results in micro-inflammation that is not visible but causes discomfort.

Itching occurs when small micro-inflammations of the scalp cause the release of Substance P, which is what creates the need to scratch. Every time the patient scratches, the skin becomes more inflamed and more Substance P is released, creating a vicious circle that becomes very annoying. This continuous itching can affect sleep, rest and concentration or affect our social life. In addition, scratching can cause wounds that, in turn, can become infected, thus becoming a more serious and painful problem. 

A new solution with fast, lasting results
