Support Healthy Skin
Add the topical support of Malaseb® to your dermatitis treatment protocol.
Healthy skin is a protective barrier.
A combination of cornified skin cells, lipid cell membranes and a lipid matrix works to keep outside irritants out and healthy moisture in.
It is normal for pets to have low numbers of resident bacteria and yeast on the skin surface. When there is a disruption to the skin’s natural ecosystem these bacteria and yeast can overgrow, leading to skin issues.
Reasons for disruption to the natural balance of the skin:
- Allergy, for example to pollens, grasses, food (protein) and fleas.
- Parasites, such as fleas, mites and lice.
- Hormonal or endocrine imbalance
- Conformational problems such as deep skin folds – which create a moist environment that is more favorable for the growth of micro-organisms
When skin is compromised, it can let moisture out and irritants in.
These incoming pathogens and allergens combined with loss of moisture can cause a number of common skin issues:
- Dry, flaky skin
Why topical support matters
Systemic treatments may clear inflammation or pruritus, but they don’t help restore a healthy skin barrier.1
Topical support helps restore and maintain a healthy skin barrier to keep pathogens and allergens out and healthy moisture in.
Turn to the proven support of Malaseb®
Malaseb® Shampoo combines a unique formulation of chlorhexidine gluconate and miconazole nitrate for broad-spectrum support to help keep yeast and bacteria at manageable levels.
for disinfectant and antiseptic activity
to stop the growth of fungus
Miconazole nitrate addresses problems caused by gram-positive bacteria and fungi, such as ringworm and malassezia, a type of yeast that often causes dermatitis and inflammation of the skin and ears. These conditions are also linked to seborrhea and can cause irritation, greasiness, hair loss and other problems.
Chlorhexidine gluconate combats both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria to help address hot spots, skin allergies, insect bites and more. It also works against dermatitis and to degrease the skin.
Together, these two ingredients provide a comprehensive solution to support healthy skin.
Proven to kill in one minute in vitro2†
Shown to continue killing Staphylococcus and Malassezia for up to 7 days after bathing in vitro.3†
The research speaks for itself.
Only Malaseb is backed by 16 studies and years of scientific testing. No wonder it’s the medicated shampoo most recommended by veterinarians.1
Formulated for gentle cleansing.
Harsh cleansers can do more harm than good, further compromising the skin layer. While Malaseb® Shampoo provides broad-spectrum support for dermatitis protocol, it also provides coat conditioners and irritation-relieving ceramides in a fragrance-free shampoo base that descales and degreases the coat without stripping. This can help prevent scratching and associated hair loss.
- Helps remove excess scale and oils, commonly produced when the skin is infected
- Helps remove pollens and other allergens, which can be present on the coat or skin and cause irritation
Targeted support with Malaseb® Flush
Though the shampoo provides a convenient way to treat all areas of the pet’s skin at once, localized irritations or rashes may be more easily reached with Malaseb® Flush for targeted application to small and hard-to-access areas such as between toes, skin folds or the ears.
Whether your client is suffering from a specific condition, experiencing general skin irritation or diminished skin health, or simply in need of protection from future infections- Malaseb Shampoo is an ideal way to support healthy skin while cleaning and caring for the pet’s coat.
