Zinc for purifying scalps prone to oiliness.

Zinc and its derivatives are primarily recommended for the health of the scalp, which directly influences the condition of the hair. Two main actions are associated with the external application of zinc in topical use.

  • Combatting dandruff.

    Zinc possessespurifying andantibacterial properties. It aids in regulating sebum production, thus preventing the excesses that lead to oily and unbalanced scalps. Consequently, it helps to limit the occurrence of oily dandruff, and is therefore found in many hair care products targeting this issue.

    It is important to note that it is primarily the zinc pyrithione (INCI: ZINC PYRITHIONE) that was found a few years ago in the main anti-dandruff hair treatments. However, this active ingredient is now highly controversial ( suspected mutagen, potential reproductive toxicant, potential aquatic ecotoxicity) and most importantly banned in Europe (Annex II/1670 of the cosmetic regulation). Instead, zinc-PCA or zinc gluconate are now used, which are much gentler and pose no risks to health and the environment.

  • Limiting itchiness.

    Zinc possesses soothing properties. It acts as a regulator of interleukin 1-alpha, a mediator of inflammation. As such, it alleviates discomforts of the scalp such as itching, tingling, tightness, and other unpleasant sensations.
