active substance - Zinc pyrithione (in terms of 100% substance) - 0.2 g (0.2%);
Zinc pyrithione has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal activity. The antibacterial activity of zinc pyrithione is manifested against a number of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus spp.)
Zinc pyrithione reduces the intracellular ATP level, promotes depolarization of cell membranes, causing the death of fungi and bacteria. Antifungal activity is especially pronounced against fungi of the genus Malassezia (formerly Pityrosporum ovale and Pityrosporum orbiculare), which cause inflammation and excessive scaling in dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis and other skin diseases. The mechanism of anti-inflammatory action has not been studied.
