Ketomac Shampoo

Get gorgeous and healthy hair with Ketomac shampoo. Containing Ketoconazole, a synthetic antifungal agent with a 2% concentration in an aqueous solution, can help alleviate dandruff and fungal infections.

How Does Ketomac Shampoo Help You Fight Against Dandruff?

Ketomac shampoo has Ketoconazole as its main ingredient, which is beneficial against dandruff and other scalp conditions. Doctors recommend this shampoo if you have acute dandruff problems, which can lead to hair fall. Dandruff turns your scalp dry and compels you to scratch it and eliminate itchiness, and scratching can loosen the roots, resulting in hair fall. Therefore, you need the right product for better hair care. 

Ketoconazole in the Ketomac shampoo kills fungus called Malassezia, which occurs naturally on the skin. The more dandruff on your skin, your scalp will likely get Malassezia. Ketomac shampoo interferes with synthesizing ergosterol (a vital component of fungal cell membranes) to weaken it. The weakened cell membrane allows the contents of the fungal cell to leak out, resulting in its death.
