Dandrilys, the anti-dandruff natural active developed by Greentech has received the 2014 European Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership.

Dandrilys is developed from the bark of Ziziphus joazeiro, an evergreen plant native to South America. The bark extract contains jujubosides, a type of saponin that confers foaming properties and antioxidative protection, with strengthening and revitalizing effects on the skin. Additionally, its sugar constituents comprising polysaccharides and oligosaccharides offer moisturizing and calming effects, which will lower the irritation caused by dandruff.

By leveraging its comprehensive drug discovery database, Greentech has successfully developed an extremely efficient anti-dandruff product that is having a huge impact on the hair care segment,” noted Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager for Health and Wellness Sandhya Kamath. “Consumers have shown a marked preference for naturallyderived products in recent years; therefore, Dandrilys may offer an additional option of antidandruff actives.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leverage leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value added features and benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers.

Greentech will present new results about this dandruff reducer agent on the occasion of in-cosmetics 2014, which will be held on April 01-03 in Hamburg, Germany.
