CAS No: 68890-66-4
Molecular Formula: C14H23NO2· C2H7NO
The scalp depends itself against micro-organisms and fungus infections. The defence system protects the scalp against all kinds of influences that it is expose to. Sometimes this defence system becomes weakened and a certain fungus infection develops called Pityrosporum Ovale. This fungus infection causes considerable cell multiplication. The skin is no longer in a position to defend itself; The scaling becomes rapid, and starts to gather on the scalp. A superfluous cell situation mixing with skin sebum causes dandruffto be formed. People with dandruff experience itchiness of the scalp. Besides this, theirproblem is very often an ongoing one.
Piroctone Olamine is an anti-dandruff active ingredient, soothes inflamed scalp and reduces flaking. It has a specific action against Pityrosporum Ovale, the agent responsible for the production of dandruff.

Thickening: Piroctone Olamine increases the viscosity of many surfactant system
A). PH: Stable in solution of pH 3 to pH 9.
B). Heat: Stable to heat, and to short time of high temperature above 80º C. DF-206 in shampoo of pH 5.5-7.0 remains stable after one year of storage at a temperature over 40º C.
