    Default Suitable sunscreen for seb derm?

    I was thinking of purchasing Altruist’s SPF 50 sunscreen as it’s fairly inexpensive, fragrance free and formulated by dermatologists. However, I’m not too sure if this could make seb derm worse by feeding the malassezia

    It doesn’t seem to contain any oils and also has piroctone olamine which sounds promising

    Full ingredients list:
    Aqua, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Glycerin, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Ethylhexyl, Salicylate, Octocrylene, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Titanium Dioxide (nano), Cetyl Alcohol, Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Triscontanyl PVP, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Phenoxyethanol, Alumina, Piroctone Olamine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Panthenol, Aminomethyl Propanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Piroctone Olamine, Simethicone, Tris-Biphenyl Triazine (nano), Decyl Glucoside, Diethylhexyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Propylene Glycol, Decyl Glucoside, Disodium Phosphate, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Xanthan Gum, Butylene Glycol, Silver Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA

    Although I’ve previously read online some people claim esthers feed malassezia

    Aveeno sunscreens actually work pretty well for me. I got some seborrheic dermatitis on my forehead, this sunscreen haven’t caused any irritation or itchiness on my forehead. Most drug stores carry it.

    For the seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp though, I actually find sun exposure helped to reduce itchiness n inflammation.
