HOW 8X SHAMPOO WORKS
8X Shampoo is a combination of two antifungal medicines: Ciclopirox and Zinc pyrithione which treat dandruff. These medicines work by stopping the growth of fungi that cause dandruff by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.
Ciclopirox is a hydroxypyridone antifungal agent, although the relevance of this property for the indication of seborrhoeic dermatitis is not known. Ciclopirox acts by chelation of polyvalent cations (Fe3+ or Al3+), resulting in the inhibition of the metal-dependent enzymes that are responsible for the degradation of peroxides within the fungal cell. Zinc pyrithione is known to have both a non-specific keratolytic and antifungal activities. Thus it is effective in the treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff. Ciclopirox/zinc pyrithione combination has a synergistic effect on the growth control and the reduction of Malassezia population. Aloe vera acts as a natural conditioner.
In a study in patients with seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp, application of 5 mL ciclopirox shampoo 1% twice weekly for 4 weeks, with an exposure time of 3 minutes per application, resulted in detectable serum concentrations of ciclopirox in 6 out of 18 patients. The serum concentrations measured throughout the dosing interval on days 1 and 29 ranged from 10.3 ng/mL to 13.2 ng/mL. Total urinary excretion of ciclopirox was less than 0.5% of the administered dose.
