Kane Dermatology Feature


A new scalp detoxifier and shampoo designed to break down biofilm.

Recent research has indicated that the persistence of biofilms may be linked with aggravating the symptoms associated with common scalp conditions, such as dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis.

Kane Dermatology launched a shampoo, shampoo bar and scalp detoxifier under the DermaKB™ brand as the first products in their new skin care line. The products are sold direct-to-consumer through Amazon and Kane’s online commerce site.

Kane had conducted an extensive consumer trial on DermaKB™ scalp care products with coactiv+™ across North America with 4,500 participants suffering from a variety of common scalp conditions. Over 1,400 extensive questionnaires were completed, and of the participants who used both the DermaKB™ Detoxifier and Shampoo and rated their symptom as either extreme or severe before the trial, 82% identified an improvement in their symptom after using the products.
