Selsun Gold Treatment Shampoo

Selsun Gold Treatment Shampoo is medically proven¹ to treat and control problem dandruff.

It is formulated with selenium sulfide 2.5%, which is proven not only to remove dandruff, but also to fight the cause of dandruff by slowing down the rate our skin produces new cells. It softens and sheds the outermost layer of skin, to help reduce flaking and itching.

What is dandruff?

Dandruff (pityriasis capitis) is the excessive flaking of dead skin that forms on the scalp and can be accompanied by itchiness, redness and irritation. It is a common, chronic scalp condition and can have several causes.


Selsun Gold is medically proven¹ to fight:

  • - Problem dandruff
  • - Seborrheic dermatitis (inflammatory condition that may affect the scalp, face and skin)
  • - Tinea versicolor (a condition that can cause skin discolouration)
  • - As an adjunct in the treatment of tinea capitis (ringworm)

Main causes of dandruff


The fungus 'malassezie furfur' is found naturally on the skin, however it can sometimes grow too fast and feed on the oils in our hair follicles. This irritates the skin, resulting in dandruff and itching.


Dry skin is especially common in winter when the air is cold and when rooms are overheated or showers are hot. Flakes are generally smaller and less oily compared to other causes of dandruff.


Seborrheic dermatitis (irritated, oily skin) is a frequent cause of dandruff, and is marked by red, greasy skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales.


If you don't regularly wash your hair, oils and skin cells from your scalp can build up and cause dandruff.


Sensitivities to certain haircare products or hair dyes can cause a red, itchy, scaling scalp. Shampooing too often or using too many styling products may also irritate your scalp, causing dandruff.


Sebaceous glands are microscopic glands in the skin. When you experience a hormonal imbalance or stress, this can cause the glands to become overactive and may result in mild dandruff.
