              • Apparently, a product that contains coal tar. From Wikipedia:
                Medical
                Also known as liquor carbonis detergens (LCD),[11] and liquor picis carbonis (Latin: coal tar solution) (LPC),[12][13] it can be used in medicated shampoo, soap and ointment, as a treatment for dandruff and psoriasis, as well as being used to kill and repel head lice. When used as a medication in the U.S., coal tar preparations are considered an OTC (over-the-counter drug) pharmaceutical and are subject to regulation by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Name brands include Denorex, Balnetar, Psoriasin, Tegrin, T/Gel, and Neutar. When used in the extemporaneous preparation of topical medications, it is supplied in the form of Coal Tar Topical Solution USP, which consists of a 20% w/v solution of coal tar in alcohol, with an additional 5% w/v of polysorbate 80;[14] this must then be diluted in an ointment base such as petrolatum.
