To prevent your dandruff, it is essential to control the situation promptly.

Kopirox is the most favoured ingredient to fight against dandruff


Never-ending dandruff making you stressed? 

Dandruff is the major concern for middle aged and office going men and women. Dandruff not only weakens your scalp but also leads to other scalp problems. Therefore, one needs to find a lasting solution early.


What is the main reason behind dandruff?

Regardless of gender and age, one may face dandruff which is usually caused due to dust, pollution and hygiene. If left untreated, dandruff leads to hair loss, slow hair growth, and split ends.

Dandruff is a chronic scalp disorder characterized by scaling and itching. It makes your scalp itchy, which leads to constant scratching, redness, and hair follicle damage.


Malassezia yeast proliferation

Malassezia Globosa is not a friendly fungus found in your scalp. It is the main reason behind scalp issues like dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. The scalp becomes irritated and starts shedding tiny flakes. In severe cases, inflammation, redness, and extremely itchy patches can be seen.


Does your shampoo have anti-dandruff ingredients?”


A good anti-dandruff shampoo has to provide anti-dandruff relief to ensure results and relief from itching and flaky scalp. It also should offer excellent cosmetic and hair conditioning benefits at the same time.

Piroctone Olamine is an ethanolamine salt extracted from hydroxamic acid derivative piroctone.

Piroctone Olamine (Kopirox) is an effective, nontoxic antidandruff active ingredient that is suitable for the manufacture of antidandruff shampoos and hair care products such as hair tonics and cream rinses with antidandruff action

Piroctone Olamine has antifungal properties, which will help control the spread of Malassezia globose. It is known for its bacterio-static and fungi-static properties specifically working against Pityrosporum ovale, which lives on the skin and is associated with dandruff and other manifestations of flaking on the face and scalp

The concentrations used should be between 0.1 and 1.0 %, depending on the type of finished product. The concentration can be reduced for preparations that remain on the hair or the scalp. In these preparations a concentration between 0.05 and 0.1% is sufficient. Because of its solubility in aqueous surfactant solutions and alcohol-water mixtures, Kopirox is highly suitable for the manufacture of clear finished products.


An excellent ingredient that prevents Malassezia yeast proliferation

1. Kopirox has fungicidal and sporicidal activity in vitro. It is active against dermatophytes, yeasts, and non-dermatophyte molds.

2. Kopirox has in vitro activity against many gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including Proteus species, Pseudomonas species, Propionibacterium acnes, and Corynebacterium minutissimum.

3. Preferred by formulators globally because of its good solubility and safety parameters.

4. Kopirox also acts as a thickening agent, is used as a preservative in most cosmetic formulations, and also helps to eliminate body odour.  

5. The uniformity of antimycotic activity distinguishes Piroctone Olamine from most other topical antifungals. 


Even though hair fall due to dandruff is not a significant concern but in people with androgenic alopecia (a condition that leads to baldness), 


”Kopirox (Piroctone Olamine) effectively works on dandruff and fungal infections. Your hair loss decreases over time”


A study by NCBI anti-dandruff shampoos with Piroctone Olamine finds it is effective in treating hair shedding and thinning.

1. 16.5% of hair fall was reduced among people after using Piroctone Olamine. 

2. People who used piroctone olamine saw improvement in their hair shaft diameter by 7.7%. 

3. Piroctone Olamine decreases sebum production in the scalp.

Dandruff can be a real trouble maker and can cost precious looks. Kopirox (Piroctone Olamine) is a solution for dandruff and other major fungal infections.
