Manufacturers use a number of ingredients in dandruff shampoos. The following table lists these ingredients and how they work to minimize dandruff.
  • Ciclopirox - This antifungal agent works by stopping the growth of the fungus.
  • Coal tar - Coal tar helps reduce skin scaling and the overgrowth of skin cells that lead to dandruff.
  • Ketoconazole - This antifungal agent helps kill the Malassezia fungus that irritates oil glands and can lead to dandruff.
  • Salicylic acid - This beta hydroxy acid keeps skin cells from sticking together and can help remove scaly skin cells.
  • Salicylic acid and sulfur - Adding sulfur to salicylic acid helps further reduce skin cell buildup. Sulfur also has antimicrobial activity.
  • Selenium sulfide - This antimicrobial agent also helps slow skin cell turnover and scaling as well as reduce yeast growth.
  • Zinc pyrithione - Also known as ZPT or ZnPT, this ingredient helps heal the scalp by reducing yeast growth, excess oil production, and overproduction of skin cells that can lead to dandruff flakes.
As you can see, there are lots of different dandruff shampoo ingredients. Certain ingredients may work well for some people, but not so well for others.
