Abstract

Demand for anti-dandruff hair care is increasing, with research showing dandruff and scalp related issues are particularly common when heat and moist, humid conditions are at play. Safe active ingredient Piroctone Olamine, an established cosmetics preservative, is proven also to be effective at controlling microorganisms responsible for flaking and irritation, reducing dandruff and scalp itch. Furthermore it offers efficient formulating advantages that support application of anti-dandruff action to modern formats such as clear liquid formulas, dry shampoos and leave-on hair repair tonics. We demonstrate its performance as a viable solution for formulators looking to meet hair care demands, with even broader scope of application from anti-acne skin care to deodorants.
