Psoriderm Bath Additive discontinued

The manufacturer has confirmed that the coal tar-based bath additive was permanently discontinued in June 2021.

Psoriderm Bath Additive (website news)In September 2021, we contacted Dermal Laboratories, the manufacturer of the coal-tar based Psoriderm Bath Additive, to check the product's availability, following a report from one of our members that it had become difficult to obtain.

Dermal confirmed to us that Psoriderm Bath Additive was permanently discontinued in June 2021. They issued the following statement:

“Dermal Laboratories regret to announce that due to supply chain and other external issues, it has not been possible to manufacture further supplies of Psoriderm Bath, which has regrettably led to the decision to discontinue the product.

The alternative coal tar products in the Psoriderm Range, Psoriderm Cream and Psoriderm Scalp Lotion Shampoo, remain available.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused and advise patients affected by the discontinuation of Psoriderm Bath to speak to their GP or dermatology specialist.”
