Exorex Lotion, in a green bottle and box, is a coal-tar based treatment for psoriasis.
Exorex Hair and Body Wash, in a blue bottle and box, is simply a gentle, unfragranced and uncolored wash. It has no active ingredient to TREAT psoriasis. It should not cause any irritation of course.
I recently bought a bottle of the Lotion to try, and while on amazon one day I saw the body wash advertised and bought it with no further research. Do not make the same mistake that I did.
On Amazon the product description for the body wash said that it was a TREATMENT for psoriasis.
I have confirmed that it is clear on the Exorex website that the Lotion is licensed as a treatment for psoriasis, and that the Hair and Body wash is not.
On the packaging for the Body Wash it clearly says:
"Can be used with the Exorex Lotion treatment programme for Psoriasis" and
" gently cleanses, and used regularly may assist in the management of common dry and sensitive skin conditions". (note the word "may" ).

I have just started using Exorex lotion for the first time and I find it is making me so itchy that I physically cannot stop scratching but I feel my Psoriasis has improved.
