CLEANSING

ANTI-IRRITANT, ANTI-ADHESIVE TECHNOLOGY®

USES: KERATOLUX® Shampoo with SPHERULITES® Microcapsules is a unique antiseborrheic and keratolytic tar-free shampoo that removes scales, crusts, and excessive oil associated with keratoseborrheic disorders (oleosa or sicca) in dogs, cats and horses. This product helps regulate the keratinization process and sebum production to improve skin health.

ANTI-ADHESIVE glycotechnology utilizes a unique combination of monosaccharides and an alkylpolyglucoside that reduces bacterial and yeast adhesion to the stratum corneum. This action physically disrupts micro-organism colonization on the skin surface and may delay onset of irritation due to topical bacteria or yeast.

SPHERULITES Microcapsules: an exclusive encapsulation system that provides a slow release of ingredients long after product application.

Chitosanide: a natural biopolymer that creates a protective film on the skin and hair coat.

Active Ingredients

Sodium salicylate 1.0% w/w, (equivalent to 0.86% Salicylic acid), Zinc gluconate 0.5% w/w, Pyridoxine HCl 0.5%.

ALSO CONTAINS: SPHERULITES Microcapsules, monosaccharides and an alkylpolyglucoside, fatty acids.

Directions For Use

Shake well before use. Wet the hair coat with warm water and apply a sufficient amount of shampoo to create a rich lather. Massage shampoo into wet hair coat, lather freely. Rinse and repeat.
