Frost & Sullivan has awarded Greentech with the 2014 European Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership for developing Dandrilys.

This potent, plant-based natural product mitigates scalp irritation, reduces dandruff, normalises sebum production and subsequently, facilitates the growth of healthy hair. Dandrilys is developed from the bark of Ziziphus joazeiro, an evergreen plant native to South America. The leaves and/or the bark of the plant produce abundant foam upon mixing with water. The detergency and foaming properties of Dandrilys have been proven to be 2.1 times higher than sodium laureth sulfate’s, a surfactant that is commonly used in shampoo and shower products. Therefore, apart from applications in anti-dandruff hair shampoo, Dandrilys can be used for the formulation of shower and facial cleanser products. The bark extract contains jujubosides, a type of saponin that confers foaming properties and antioxidative protection, with strengthening and revitalising effects on the skin. Additionally, its sugar constituents comprising polysaccharides and oligosaccharides offer moisturising and calming effects, which will lower the irritation caused by dandruff. “Greentech’s anti-dandruff promotion strategy is based on the ability of Dandrilys to cleanse the scalp and hair of impurities and dandruff by preventing sebum production,” said Frost & Sullivan industry manager for Health and Wellness, Sandhya Kamath. “By retarding the production of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), it will inhibit the cascading reactions that trigger itchiness and inflammation.”
