In conclusion, this six-week, interventional, open-label, safety/efficacy study demonstrated that the herbal-based face cream provided improvement for desquamation, induration, erythema, ISGA, and pruritus. Subjects were extremely satisfied with the speed of improvement, the ease of use of the face cream, and its characteristics. No safety issues were encountered. SUMMARY This study was performed to determine the safety, efficacy, and ease of use of a novel herbal-based face cream in providing relief to facial seborrheic dermatitis, as measured with an ISGA using a 6- point scale and other criteria. All factors showed clinically meaningful reduction during the study with a decrease of mean scores from one visit to the next, with the exception of desquamation from Week 4 to Week 6; however, it was a major improvement from baseline.
