Sederma is proud to offer high tech active ingredients with proven efficacy that also contribute to the preservation of our planet thanks to low-impact production modes and responsible sourcing.”

A Natural Extract


Apiscalp™ is a natural extract of Apium graveolens (Celery) seeds obtained by supercritical carbon dioxide extraction, an eco-designed process. Supercritical fluid extraction, using carbon dioxide as a solvent, provides an excellent alternative to the use of chemical solvents for the extraction of lipophilic compounds.

This production mode offers high purity molecules (no residual solvents), requires less energy (low extraction temperature for molecule preservation) and less “solvent” (CO2 is recycled) compared to classical extraction.

Fights Against Dandruff


Gracioso further added:

“This award is a fantastic recognition of our commitment in combining innovation and reduction of our impacts on Humans and the Environment”.

Indeed, thanks to its targeted mechanism of action, Apiscalp™ helps fight against dandruff, itching, dryness and hyperseborrhea to provide beauty and comfort to both oily scalp and dry scalp.
