    I see, thank you for your answer.

    Do you think one can use it only as a one-per-day leave on tonic? Or is a shampoo+conditioner a must?

    My weight is 160 pounds so 0.07 % of climbazole would be ideal.

    I personally think if you'll be using a leave-on tonic on the scalp then an antifungal shampoo might be a tad redundant. You could just use a regular shampoo to cleanse the scalp and prep it for the tonic. A leave-on topical is always going to be more effective than a wash-off of a similar concentration, anyway, for the simple fact that contact time is significantly greater.

    Alternatively, if you still want to use an antifungal shampoo, you could always opt for one that uses an agent other than climbazole, such as ciclopirox olamine or ketoconazole. Climbazole isn't the only option, so it seems unnecessary to double up on it.

    Thank you. I was using the Selsun blue earlier but the seborrheic on my face got much worse, but I've heard that this might be one step in the process?

    Hi Savino,

    I have been trying to message you back but it says you aren't accepting private messages so I can't.

    Are there any "neutral" oils/substances that climbazole can be dissolved in other than MCT oil? I have issues with MCT Oil, but I've been using squalane oil and it seems "okay" in terms of whether or not it propagates fungus/acne for fungus. Can it be dissolved in squalane oil? I'm allergic to cetyl alcohol powder so I can't make a lotion.

    I think donmattus tried dissolving climbazole in squalane oil but it would not dissolve. Do you get any allergic reactions from using squalane oil?

    For us suffering from contact dermatitis it's almost impossible to use any kind of product that treats SD and at the same time does not cause any allergic reactions. I have found that no less than 10k of vitamin D works good at reducing SD.

    Hi, and yes, and I live in the US. If you can make about 4 more posts, then you can send me a Private Message on this forum. Then we can exchange information via email or via PM.

    It takes a lot of planning and experience to make a good shampoo and a lotion. The formulas posted here are not what I make now, but the fundamentals are similar. The formulas I posted here are more like a good start, rather than what I make now.

    Also, in addition to climbazole, I've added piroctone olamine as an active ingredient, which unclogged my meibomian glands.

    It appears to me that malasezzia and demodex compete for similar resources on the skin -- I say that because after I used climbazole, my seb derm (induced by an allergy to malassezia) went away, which apparently allowed demodex to increase, and then piroctone olamine allowed my red, dry eyes to heal. In my opinion and at least for me, both conditions, demodicosis and seb derm, are allergic reactions. Keep in mind too that your skin still has to heal itself, so your age in decades time 2 is the number of months for healing to occur.

    I've also added sodium hyaluronate, which is extremely good at improving skin texture, making it smoother.
