Dandruff and seborrhea control
Keeps Seborrheic Dermatitis under control. Regulates sebum secretion and microorganism growth. Improves erythema, scaling and pruritus.
It is characterized by inflammation in skin areas where there are usually many sebaceous glands. It should be noted that the location, prevalence and severity of saborrheic dermatitis in areas of increased sebaceous activity coincides with areas that have greater populations of P.ovale.
This microorganism also appears to influence the composition of sebum by releasing lipases. P. ovale degrades natural sebum glycerides (TAG) into free fatty acids, of greater irritant potential, and glycerin. Both substances are greasier than natural sebum, TAG and also fatty acids are solid; these circumstances increase the feeling of waxiness and crusting. Scalp scaling is a physiological fact due to continuous mitoses of the cells of the basal layer of the epidermis.
Seborrheic dermatitis occurs mainly in two age groups of the population; firstly in childhood, within the first three months of life and secondly in adulthood. the disease affects approximately 2.5% of the population and men are generally more prone to suffering it than women.
