Intelligence behind beauty’ has been Dr. Straetmans motivation for many years and dedicated people are working hard daily to bring this idea to life. Over the past two decades a number of innovative cosmetic ingredients have been developed.
For Dr. Straetmans, sustainability and ecological responsibility have always been guiding principals in both the development of new functional raw materials as well as in the identification of alternatives to known ingredients. Pityriasis simplex capitis, commonly known as dandruff is a disorder of the scalp of which approximately 5% of the world’s population is suffering. Malassezia furfur, a microorganism belonging to the group of yeasts is considered an important factor in the formation of dandruff. Consequently, antimicrobial substances incorporated into a shampoo matrix are commonly employed in its treatment. Piroctone olamine, zinc pyrithion and climbazole are well-established anti-dandruff actives of proven efficacy which, however, are manufactured from petrochemical feedstock. Effective alternatives from natural and sustainable origin are so far unknown. Reason enough for Dr. Straetmans to investigate into this challenge. With dermosoft® decalact (INCI: Sodium Caproyl/ Lauroyl Lactyl Lactate), Dr. Straetmans introduces a multifunctional active from 100% sustainable raw materials with an impressive anti-dandruff efficacy. Clinical studies are revealing that dermosoft® decalact visibly improved the conditions of the scalp and exhibited a efficacy comparable to piroctone olamine in the reduction of the number and size of dandruff scales. Additional efficacy studies against other yeast strains causing e.g. athlete’s foot (Trichophyton mentagrophytes) or candidiasis (Candida albicans) proved a superior activity of dermosoft® decalact versus the commonly used fungicide triclosan and climbazole. With dermosoft® decalact, another versatile and promising raw material from sustainable sources has been made accessible to the cosmetic industry by Dr. Straetmans.
