What Is Mentar? 

Exclusive Mentar® technology is a proprietary, anti-dandruff formula used exclusively in Denorex Therapeutic Maximum Itch Shampoo. The unique combination of coal tar and menthol is FDA recommended and approved to effectively eliminate the itching and flaking caused by dandruff and psoriasis.


About Mentar®: 

Mentar effectively fights severe dandruff and psoriasis and includes Menthol, a dermatologist-recommended ingredient to rid your scalp of persistent itching where other dandruff shampoos come up short. Coal Tar helps to slow the rapid growth of skin cells and restores the skin’s appearance, while also reducing inflammation and the itching and scaling of psoriasis. Scratching the scalp or using force to remove the scales from scalp psoriasis can cause hair loss. Denorex Therapeutic controls scalp itch and helps prevent hair loss*. Denorex Therapeutic also includes conditioners that moisturize and replenish your hair, leaving you with a healthy scalp and beautiful hair.

*The American Academy of Dermatologists states that the scratching of Scalp Psoriasis can cause hair loss. Denorex Therapeutic controls scratching associated with scalp psoriasis to help prevent hair loss.

Coal Tar

Menthol is an organic substance obtained from the oil of different mints (e.g. peppermint) and/or produced synthetically. Typically, menthol appears clear or with a slight whitish tint and is liquid at just above room temperature. It is used for a number of applications to include its function as an antipruritic (anti-itch drug), effective in combatting the itch associated with yeast infections, dandruff, and psoriasis. Other uses include its function as a topical analgesic or to soothe skin affected by razor burn. The tingly fresh feeling that comes from using Denorex Therapeutic is a by-product of menthol’s input to Mentar.

Medicinal coal tar is also referred to as Liquor Carbonis Detergens (LCD) and has been utilized for dermatologic disorders dating back to ancient times. Tar is used to treat scalp psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, chronic stable plaque psoriasis, and seborrheic dermatitis. In Denorex Therapeutic Shampoo, coal tar is used in combination with menthol to treat dandruff, psoriasis, and as an effective remedy for head lice. Medicinal coal tar preparations in the United States are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and are categorized as an over-the-counter drug.
