Enzyme responsible for seborrheic dermatitis

Scientists have discovered that an enzyme is responsible for the Malassezia globosa fungus that's a common cause of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis.
Seborrheic dermatitis a severe form of greasy dandruff that can appear on the face as well as the scalp results from excessive production of oil from the sebum glands attached to hair follicles.
It is this enzyme that appears to stimulate over production of sebum, leading to the development of the Malassezia fungus.
Several over the counter treatments are available to treat seborrheic dermatitis, however many contain chemical ingredients which may cause other problems.
For those who prefer a natural seborrheic dermatitis treatment a very good natural alternative is provided by the New Zealand Manuka plant in both the essential oil and the special Manuka honey.
Manuka Natural produce a cream containing 30% Manuka UMF15+ honey, an oil containing 25% East Cape Manuka essential oil and a soap containing Manuka oil specifically for controlling skin fungi and seborrheic dermatitis.
These products are grouped together in a natural seborrheic dermatitis treatment pack for convenience including free shipping worldwide.
