I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking me about which exact products I’ve used or would recommend. This page will serve as a reference (currently work in progress).

Item That I Currently Use
These are the supplements and products that I am currently using. So far I have been free from the majority of seborrheic dermatitis issues for almost a year. However, there are certain dietary changes which have likely benefited the remission as well.
Specific Product: Jarrow Formulas L-Glutamine Powder 1000g
Why This One: It had the highest reviews and was one of the only pure powders I could find on Amazon. The other alternative was Now Foods, but I have never really been a fan of their stuff (maybe just the aesthetics of the packaging?).
Pros: Cheaper than local store here in Canada, seems like it’s good quality, talked to Jarrows and they told me it’s made from sugar beets.
Cons: Haven’t found any.
Ingredients: 100% L-Glutamine
Brand: Cetaphil (Galderma)
Specific Product: Cetaphil Restoraderm Nourishing Body Wash (In US it is labelled as Eczema Calming Body Wash)
Why This One: It’s been working well..
Pros: Works well, doesn’t seem to have too much bad stuff, and says it’s safe for infants (3+ Months).
Cons: Wish it was 100% natural, but I’m happy as long as it works.
Other Notes: There seem to be some other similar formulas for the same stuff out there. For comparison you can take a look at the official Canadian page. Also this is labelled as a body wash, but I use it exclusively for my face.
Ingredients: aqua (purifed water/eau purifée), butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), sodium trideceth sulfate, glycerin, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, sodium chloride, sodium lauramphoacetate, cocamide MEA, citric acid, niacinamide, sodium PCA (filaggrin BP), tocopheryl acetate, 1,2-Hexanediol and caprylyl glycol, disodium EDTA, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, allantoin, potassium sorbate, arginine (filaggrin BP), methylisothiazolinone
Brand: Cetaphil (Galderma)
Specific Product: Cetaphil Restoraderm Replenishing Moisturizer (In US it is labelled as Eczema Calming Body Wash)
Why This One: Same reason as the facial wash.
Pros: Same as the facial cleanser.
Cons: Same as the facial cleanser.
Other Notes: Same ingredient and labelling issues as the facial cleanser. Haven’t actually ever bought a bottle yet, samples seem to last forever as I use minuscule amounts.
Ingredients: aqua (purified water/eau purifée), glycerin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, pentylene glycol, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), sorbitol, cyclopentasiloxane, cetearyl alcohol, behenyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, tocopheryl acetate, hydroxypalmitoyl sphinganine (ceramide), cetyl alcohol, arginine (filaggrin), disodium ethylene dicocamide PEG-15 disulfate, glyceryl stearate citrate, niacinamide, sodium PCA (filaggrin BP), ceteareth-20, sodium polyacrylate, caprylyl glycol, allantoin, citric acid, panthenol, dimethiconol, disodium EDTA, sodium hyaluronate
Apple Cider Vinegar
Specific Product: Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
Why This One: Cheap, highly rated, and easy to find. However, recently I have been buying from local farmers instead.
Pros: Seems like good quality apple cider vinegar… Organic.
Cons: Their marketing is a little too much for my taste. Also there is some controversy surrounding their medical credentials.
How I Use It: Currently I am actually not using it in any specific method. Currently simply using it as salad dressing.
