An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries. Unfortunately it is currently taking longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow up to 5 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Keep well and stay safe.

About the ingredients

  • Coal Tar: Coal tar is a common ingredient in dry scalp or dry skin treatments. Dry scalp conditions are often caused by an excess of hard, scaly skin. The coal tar in Capasal breaks down this skin and thus makes the scalp softer and less scaly. In addition, coal tar helps reduce itching and has an antiseptic effect, which helps to calm fungal and microbial infections that can afflict psoriasis sufferers.
  • Salicylic acid: The salicylic acid in Capasal works in a similar way to the coal tar, breaking down hard, scaly skin.
  • Coconut oil: Coconut oil is a natural moisturiser and soothes the skin on the scalp.
Express Chemist recommend Capasal for the treatment of a number of dry scalp conditions including eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, psoriasis and cradle cap.
