TAR BENEFITS TO THE SKIN
For people with psoriasis, using the right soap can
prevent further irritation, help the patches heal more
quickly, and possibly even treat the condition. Some
examples of soaps that can help include those containing
coal tar and colloidal oatmeal.
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that causes skin symptoms
such as painful and sometimes itchy patches of raised, shiny or silvery,
On black skin, the patches may be violet or purple. On white skin, they
may be reddish.
Psoriasis is not contagious and does not develop due to poor hygiene.
However, treating mild psoriasis with moisturizing creams, lotions, and
special soaps may help relieve skin symptoms.
Using the right soap will not prevent psoriasis or wash the patches away,
but it can prevent them from getting worse, and it may help healthy skin
grow more quickly.
Below, we list some types of soap that may help ease psoriasis
symptoms. A dermatologist can help a person choose the right product
Some studies have found that tar can help slow the growth of skin cells
that contribute to the buildup of psoriasis plaques.
Tar can also help with:
There are two types of tar soap:
Wood tar soaps
These contain tar that derives from the wood of various plants, such as
juniper and pine.
The soaps may:
have anti-inflammatory antiseptic, antimicrobial, and antifungal
help stop the overgrowth of skin cells
According to one 2017 study, the product is not actually a soap but a
soap-free bar. Lotions and gels are also available. The product can
contain up to 2.3% pine tar.
Coal tar soap
This contains tar from coal.
Doctors have been recommending coal tar soaps for many years, and
they consider it safe, according to the American Academy of Dermatology

It is not clear exactly how it works or why, but it appears to help treat
itching and scale in:
palmoplantar psoriasis, which affects the hands and feet
The ADD note that it can be very effective. Some people’s symptoms
completely disappear, and they may have a long period of remission (no
symptoms) before the next flare (when symptoms reappear).
For symptoms that are difficult to resolve, a doctor may recommend
combining coal tar soap with a corticosteroid cream or lotion.
In 2010, scientists analyzed data from 25 studies that looked at the use of
coal tar soap for treating psoriasis. In 84% of the studies, results showed
that coal tar soap was effective. In 16%, the data showed no benefit of
using coal tar soap.
Tar soap has a strong odor that some people find unpleasant. It can also
make the skin more vulnerable to sunburn. In some people, sunburn is a
risk factor for psoriasis flares, so it is especially important for people who
use tar soap to wear sunscreen.
Some people experience skin irritation or burning with tar or tar soap. For
this reason, it is a good idea to test a small patch of skin before using the
soap on the rest of their body.
In the past, some animal and workplace studies have suggested that
exposure to coal tar may increase the risk of cancer. In California,
products containing more than 0.5% coal tar must carry a cancer warning.
However, the AAD note that there is no evidence of a risk to people who
use it. In fact, one 2010 study that included 13,200 people found no
increase in cancer risk among those who used coal tar products for 1–300
Also, in 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) noted that coal tar
concentrations of 0.5% to 5% are safe. The strength of the product does
not appear to predict how well it will work.
That said, when pregnant or breastfeeding, it may be better to avoid coal
Methylsulfonylmethane exhibits bacteriostatic inhibition of Escherichia coli, and Salmonella
enterica Kinshasa, in vitro.
Poole TL , Benjamin R , Genovese KJ , Nisbet DJ .
To evaluate antibacterial properties of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) on Escherichia coli (MDRE21) and Salmonella enterica
serovar Kinshasa (SK132).
Bacterial proliferation analysis was measured spectrophotometrically during log phase growth with 0, 3, 5, 7,
10, 12 and 16% MSM. To assess the mechanism of inhibition, cultures were grown overnight with 0-16% MSM and enumerated on
unmedicated brain-heart infusion agar (BHIA) or BHIA with 0-16% MSM. The long-term viability studies were done to evaluate the
impact of 10% MSM. Absorbance data indicated a dose-dependent inhibition from 0 to 16% MSM. There was no growth of MDRE21 or
SK132 on BHIA in 10-16% MSM. Both strains enumerated on unmedicated BHIA from overnight cultures with 10-16% MSM were able to partially recover.
Recovery after MSM removal may be indicative of a bacteriostatic mechanism of inhibition. The long-term viability
studies illustrated that neither MDRE21 nor SK132 could be rescued from 10% MSM after 5 or 6 days respectively.
Methylsulfonylmethane antibacterial activity may prove useful during pre or postharvest food safety as a disinfectant. The primary benefit being, its clinical safety to humans. Comparisons to other disinfectants would also need to be done to determine if MSM was superior to those already on the market and would be cost effective.
