The secret of what causes dandruff has finally been solved. And the blame can be laid at the door of two strains of fungus that grow on every scalp.
Seborrhoeic eczema or dandruff with an itchy scalp is believed to be an inflammatory reaction related to a proliferation of a normal skin inhabitant, a yeast called Malassezia (formerly known as Pityrosporum ovale).
The main species found in the scalp is M. globosa.
When there is an overgrowth of the fungus it produces toxic substances that irritate the skin. The waste products irritate the skin of sufferers, causing it to flake off prematurely.
Seborrhoeic dermatitis is not contagious but it may be aggravated by food intolerances, such as diary, sugar, wheat and food additives.
And could indicate an overgrowth of yeast such as candida in the gut.
Patients with seborrhoeic eczema appear to have a reduced resistance to the yeast.
Sometimes the yeast will travel down to the eyebrows as well, and this can also make the eyelids very itchy.
Rosemary and lavender essential oils both of which are in Sensitive Skincare Company Shampoo and Conditioner are
well known to inhibit the growth of the yeast.
The Essential oils are both anti bacterial, anti fungal, and inflammatory. Together they help the scalp keep from becoming itchy and irritated during the day.
