A New Phenolated Scalp Oil

A New Phenolated Scalp Oil Abstract The value of mineral oils containing phenol for the treatment of various common disorders of the scalp, especially psoriasis, has been shown by Vickers,1 Sulzberger and Obadia,2 and recently, in our department, by Goldberg and Barnett.3 These materials are easier to use than messy greasy ointments. The difficulty has been to obtain a stable, homogeneous suspension of phenol in the mixture and also a cosmetically suitable material. An improvement over the older phenolated oil mixtures has been developed recently by the addition of surfactants to a vehicle of oil derived from lard instead of from mineral oil. This makes for a stable suspension. The mixture is also perfumed. Because of the recent interest in the disturbed protein metabolism of the epidermis in psoriasis, an acylated amino acid has been added to the mixture. The concentration of phenol is approximately 2%. A medication for psoriasis References 1. Vickers, M. A.: The Clinical Evaluation of a Liquid Suggested for Psoriasiform Problems of the Scalp , J.
