WHAT IS LINOTAR GEL?

Linotar Gel is a first-line topical coal tar treatment for psoriasis. Coal tar has been used for over a century for psoriasis as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other therapies. Studies have shown Linotar Gel to be as effective as Vitamin D analogues and more effective than traditional coal tar preparations for the relief of psoriasis symptoms.

WHAT MAKES LINOTAR GEL DIFFERENT?

Linotar Gel differs from other topical treatments by its novel Emzaliod technology. Emzaloid™ is a skin penetration enhancer that ensures quick and effective penetration of the coal tar into affected areas. In addition, Linotar Gel contains essential fatty acids that help to soothe the skin and restore the skin barrier. Compared with other coal tar preparations, Linotar has substantially less odour and staining, and is easier to apply.

WHAT IS THE LINOTAR TREATMENT SYSTEM?

The Linotar treatment system consists of Linotar Gel, Scalp Conditioner and Moisturising Cream. These three products provide effective treatment results for psoriasis when used together. Linotar Scalp Conditioner and Moisturising Cream also contain Emzaloid™ technology, which speeds up the effect of coal tar when used in conjunction with Linotar Gel. These two products are rich in essential fatty acids and provide additional soothing action, protection and restoration of the skin barrier.

WHAT IS PSORIASIS?

Psoriasis is a disease in which the body’s immune response is turned against itself. This leads to chronic inflammation of the skin and typical psoriasis symptoms, i.e. patches of red, raised, flaky skin covered with silvery scales.

WHO IS AFFECTED AND WHY?

More than 125 million people worldwide are affected by psoriasis. Psoriasis can start at an early age (16-22 years) or only later in life (57-60 years). Genes play a big role: at least 70 % of affected children have a family history of psoriasis. Other causes or triggers include bacterial infections, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and certain medications.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PSORIASIS?

More than 90 % of people with psoriasis have ‘plaque’ psoriasis, which are round or oval shaped patches
of raised, red, flaky skin covered with silvery scales. They may be itchy and painful. The symptoms of psoriasis tend to come and go in distinct episodes and can be physically and psychologically disabling. It is not uncommon for people with psoriasis to feel embarrassed and to experience anxiety, depression and major difficulties at work.

WHICH AREAS OF THE BODY ARE AFFECTED?

Psoriasis is commonly found on the scalp and severe dandruff is one of the hallmarks of psoriasis. Other common areas affected include the face, knees and elbows, genitalia, palms and soles. Psoriasis may also affect fingernails and toenails, causing unsightly discolouration and damage.

WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR PSORIASIS?

Topical treatments are used by up to 80 % of patients to manage psoriasis. Common topical therapies include coal tar preparations, corticosteroids and vitamin D analogues. In more severe cases, topical therapies are often used in combination with phototherapy and/or oral medication.
