Piroctone olamine is a compound sometimes used in the treatment of fungal infections. Piroctone olamine is the ethanolamine salt of the hydroxamic acid derivative piroctone. It is often used in anti-dandruff shampoo as a replacement for the commonly used compound zinc pyrithione. It is structurally similar to ciclopirox and pyrithione, containing a substituted pyridine (pyridinone) group which inhibits ergosterol synthesis. However, before we learn how they cure dandruff, we must know what causes dandruff in the first place. Dandruff is caused due to fungal growth, excess sebum secretion and local inflammations. Piroctone Olamine is known to kill the fungus or the fungal infections that irritate the scalp. Moreover, Piroctone Olamine is also well known for reducing hair loss and promoting the growth of hair. Due to these many benefits, Piroctone Olamine is considered a great ingredient in shampoos.
