Great Product!
Truly the only product that has worked for my seborrheic dermatitis. I rarely write reviews but I feel like this product warrants one. I have tried so many products and gone through a lot of stress trying to clear up my seborrheic dermatitis and this is the one thing that has kept it from flaring up. Please don’t ever discontinue this product!!

Z- Bar
This is the only product that has helped my husband with seborrheic dermatitis. He washes his scalp and face with it. He struggled for decades with the excess flakiness on his scalp and red flakey patches on his face every day. It was purchased after I heard a dermatologist on YouTube recommending it. He's been extremely happy with the results. I hope it never gets discountinued. Thank you Vanicream.

Gentle but effective
I have been struggling with back acne for years. I’ve tried everything under the sun to go include various prescription foams and creams only to finally find this product as a solution for body dermatitis. My suspicion was right! This soap cleared up those stubborn red bumps immediately. Sometimes you have to connect the dots yourself and do your own research. I’ve been a faithful fan of Vanicream lotion for years since it transformed my rosacea and the zbar did not disappoint.

The best
A dermatologist at Cur0l0gy told me that the acne on my upper arms was actually probably due to fungal infection! (What?! I would never have guessed.) I started using this soap, and it is about 90% cleared it up. I also think it has just generally helped keep the skin clearer on my body (including my tush). I hope it comes back in stock soon!! I've been checking Amazon off-and-on for weeks, and my bar is almost gone. I'm panicking! It's hard to find soap with zinc, especially from brands that I trust.
