Spec Chem Industry Inc. Unveils New Anti-dandruff Active for Clean & Itch-free ScalpPrime Surfactants introduces SpecKare® PO (Piroctone Olamine) from Spec Chem Industry Inc., an ingredient that helps destroy the fungus infection that is responsible for dandruff.

Eliminates Unpleasant Odor & Decreases Sebum Output


SpecKare® PO works against the formation of new dandruff, helping the scalp stay clean and itch-free. Within shampoo and conditioning products, Piroctone Olamine has replaced Zinc Pyrithione due to EU regulations prohibiting the latter within cosmetics in late 2021.

SpecKare® PO can also eliminate unpleasant odors effectively, decreasing the sebum output at the skin surface, which makes it suitable for anti-acne applications.
