Luteana Scalp

Bid farewell to dry dandruff
& welcome scalp harmony

DRY DANDRUFF

The consequence of a combination of structural and biochemical imbalances

Not to be mistaken for oily dandruff, dry dandruff occurs due to excessive flaking on a sensitive scalp, which is both dry and inflamed. This sensitization affects nearly half of the population, manifesting as visible white flakes and itching that can significantly impact quality of life and self-esteem. This specific and multifactorial scalp condition, involving both structural and biochemical factors, poses challenges in terms of treatment, with limited solutions available on the market.

A BIO-INSPIRED SOLUTION

Synergistic composition of potent marine molecules to address imbalances

Drawing on its microalgae expertise, Microphyt has identified two molecules of particular interest from the marine world to address both structural and biochemical imbalances:

  • DHA, an exclusive microalgae omega-3, able to restore structural imbalance through lipid cement restructuration.
  • Fucoxanthin, a marine world carotenoid, able to restore biochemical imbalance thanks to anti-inflammatory and anti-protease actions.

Developed from the Tahitian microalgae Tisochyrisis lutea, Luteana™ is an oil-based bioactive capable of halting the spread of dry dandruff and restoring a healthy scalp.

A DUAL ACTION
To interrupt dry dandruff spread

1/ Structural rebalance

Luteana™ strengthens the hydrolipidic film thanks to an increase in sebum and hydration (2).

(2) Clinical results
Clinical study protocol: application of a serum with 0.5% Luteana™ or placebo for 28 days on 2 groups of 18 volunteers. Measurement of sebum rate with Sebufix®.

2/ Biochemical rebalance

Luteana™ controls chronic inflammation (1) and provides a soothing effect (1,2) to stop itching.

(1)In-vitro results (2) Clinical results
Clinical study protocol: application of a serum with 0.5% Luteana™ or placebo or no application on different forearm area, performed on 19 volunteers. An erythema is created by stripping. Erythema index is measured by C Cube®.

3/ Dry Dandruff reduction

Thus, Luteana™ strongly decreases dry dandruff with a significantly long-lasting effect and thus enhances overall quality of life (2).

(2) Clinical results
Clinical study protocol: application of a serum with 0.5% Luteana™ or placebo for 28 days on 2 groups of 18 volunteers. Dandruff collected and measured with DandruffMeter DA20.
