Seborrheic dermatitis and CBD oil

Marusa's message

Marusa has been struggling with seborrheic dermatitis ever since she was a teenager. She recently sent us this message.

"My experience in a nutshell: a bit over a year ago, seborrheic dermatitis started presenting itself on my scalp. My scalp was unbearably itchy and got greasy really fast and in certain areas, patches of what seemed like hardened greasy dandruff formed. I also started losing more hair in those areas. I almost gave up on searching for the best natural products that could help this condition, until I came across hemp shampoo. After about three months of using this product, the itchiness disappeared almost completely, and my hair only starts getting greasy after about 3 days. The hardened dandruff patches are shrinking, and dandruff itself is not as greasy and is removed much easier. I wholeheartedly recommend the shampoo to anyone dealing with similar issues.”

Seborrheic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a relatively common and chronic inflammatory skin disease that mostly affects the skin of the face and scalp. It can also present itself in other areas of the body, typically in places with the highest concentration of sebaceous glands. It most commonly presents itself as scaly skin on and next to the scalp (the scales can be yellow, white or grey in colour) or red and oily skin that is prone to peeling, is itchy and irritated. Its main cause is an increased secretion of tallow from the sebaceous glands.

Common Causes

The exact cause of seborrheic dermatitis in not known, but it can usually be contributed to a combination of different factors.

  • A genetically conditioned tendency to an increased secretion of tallow from the sebaceous glands
  • An increased presence of the Malassezia fungus that reproduces on oily skin and causes micro-inflammation
  • Stress and fatigue
  • Hormonal changes
  • Poor nutrition and alcohol
  • An impaired immune system

 

Symptoms – How to recognize seborrheic dermatitis

  • In infants, seborrheic dermatitis is another term for a condition known to young mothers as cradle cap, a skin problem that can clear up by itself within a few months
  • In adults it usually presents itself as scaly skin on the scalp and surrounding areas, but can also manifest behind the ears and in skin folds (elbows, knees, under the breast area)
  • Itchy, red, oily and irritated skin can also be caused by seborrheic dermatitis

 

Treatment and relieving the symptoms

Seborrheic dermatitis can clear up spontaneously and without any treatment. However, it is often a chronic issue that manifests itself in intervals of outbreaks and remissions. Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic condition that can, to a certain extent, be controlled with the correct approach.

 

A few suggestions on how outbreaks of seborrheic dermatitis can be relieved naturally:

  • Avoid fatty and processed foods and enjoy foods that are rich in antioxidants
  • In winter maintain a constant level of moisture in the air, using humidifiers to do so indoors
  • Avoid stress and try relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, and regular physical activity
  • Spend as much time as possible outdoors, in the fresh air and sun (with adequate protection)
  • Make sure to get plenty of sleep

 

How does CBD oil help relieve problems with seborrheic dermatitis?

Seborrheic dermatitis occurs as a result of excessive secretion of tallow from the sebaceous glands and because of excessive reproduction of skin cells caused by the fungus Malassezia. Clinical studies have shown that the CBD molecule reduces the secretion of tallow from the sebaceous glands and inhibits the rapid reproduction of sebocytes, cells that make up the sebaceous glands.

 

Natural care of affected areas

Choosing the right shampoo
Regular scalp hygiene is important in controlling seborrheic dermatitis and it should not contain aggressive shampoos and soaps, as their use may worsen the condition further. Here we will refer to Marusa’s message about how using Hemptouch Gentle Hydrolate Shampoo almost completely relieved her outbreaks of seborrheic dermatitis. This shampoo is a natural product that doesn’t contain foaming agents, irritants, SLS or silicones. The shampoo is also rich in omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and contains oils of bergamot, muscat sage, blue chamomile and soothing hemp hydrolate. Finding a product that will not disturb the balance of your natural microflora is key when choosing a shampoo, as it is essential in the fight against Malassezia fungi.

Consuming CBD oil
CBD oil is becoming increasingly popular in combating various types of skin and other health issues. Since CBD oil is primarily intended for consumption (placing a few drops under the tongue is the most effective application), they can affect the entire body "from within" and help strengthen the immune system, which is extremely important in seborrheic dermatitis.
