    It says it’s safe for Malassezia yet in the description it says it aids in its growth slowly. Please clarify. I just don’t want to take any risks.

      Only recently and through constant research did we find out that Malassezia can metabolize this ingredient, but slowly.
      We have updated the listing accordingly to reflect this.
      We cannot stress enough that we can’t do this alone nor can we without the help of this community.
      So keep sharing and posting we appreciate the feedback.

      If you still intend to use this product, here’s what you need to know.
      Vaseline being an occlusive will aggravate Malassezia if used frequently and excessively
      So sparing application is recommended a few times per week, definitely not every day and in tiny amounts.

      Make use of an Anti-Fungal
      to offset any potential triggers.
      Here are a few top-rated ones you can try
      Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo
      10% Sulfur Ointment Acne Medication
      Selsun Blue Medicated Maximum Strength Dandruff Shampoo

      I hope this Helps.
