New Discoveries Lead To Better Treatments For Dandruff

October 26, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Recent research findings have enabled scientists to develop new, more effective treatments for dandruff, which affects more than 40 percent of the adult population. In 2007, researchers identified the specific yeast that causes dandruff, and since then, several research papers have led to new products and treatments for dandruff. These include a paper by Holm focusing on the effects of antimicrobial peptides and cell-penetrating peptides on Malasezzia sympodialis, the usual yeast found in individuals with atopic eczema. A research conducted by researchers from Procter & Gamble focused on how zinc pyrithione or ZPT works against Malassezia globosa and restricta by reducing the "expression of adhesion molecule ICAM-1," controlling the formation of visible dandruff clusters.
