 Dercos by Vichy Laboratories has launched its dermatological anti-dandruff shampoo line in Australia, targeting the core causes of dandruff with a proven formula.

With over 50 years of research, Dercos addresses scalp microbiome imbalance, which is key in controlling dandruff, and is recommended by 50,000 dermatologists worldwide.

The launch event included a panel discussion featuring Professor Rod Sinclair MBBS, MD, FACD Principal Dermatologist, Sinclair Dermatology, Consultant Dermatologist & Alopecia Specialist Dr Leona Yip, L’Oréal Australia Scientific Communications Manager Jodi Hindmarsh, Author, Speaker and MC Sarah Davidson and Astrophysicist and Author Dr Matt Agnew.

Professor Sinclair explained that quality anti-dandruff products played a significant role in reducing the negative impacts of dandruff.

“Dandruff is caused by a disturbance to the scalp microbiome,” he said.

“Overgrowth of certain microorganisms can disrupt the equilibrium, and this may be accompanied by itch and flaking. Frequent hair washing and use of an anti-dandruff shampoo can reduce the prevalence of dandruff.”

Available for dry hair and normal to oily hair, the Dercos Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo has been designed to provide a solution to  dandruff that rebalances the scalp microbiome after just four weeks of use and is available exclusively at Chemist Warehouse.
