Dandruff is a common scalp disorder affecting almost half of the population at the prepubertal age and of any gender and ethnicity. The fungus Malassezia furfur, a lipophilic yeast is widely accepted as the causative agent of dandruff, which due to its lipase activity releases proinflammatory free fatty acids causing dermal inflammation and tissue damage. Currently available treatment options of chemical origin have various limitations, either due to poor clinical efficiency or compliance… Expand

Antifungal activity of different essential oils against Malassezia pathogenic species
TLDR
Results of these studies indicate worthy prospects for clinical application of essential oil and there is an urgent need to conduct further in vivo studies with large number of patients in order to verify the clinical potential of essential oils against Malassezia species. Expand
Antifungal activity of different essential oils against Malassezia pathogenic species.
TLDR
Results of these studies indicate worthy prospects for clinical application of essential oil and there is an urgent need to conduct further in vivo studies with large number of patients in order to verify the clinical potential of essential oils against Malassezia species. Expand
A Review of Botanicals Exhibiting Antifungal Activity Against Malassezia spp. Implicated in Common Skin Conditions
TLDR
Several plant species exhibited anti-Malassezia activity, including Nyctanthes arbor-tristis, Allium sativum, and Hypericum perforatum, among others, and are recommended for further research aimed at identification of the plant secondary metabolites responsible for this activity. Expand
Antifungal activity of plant extracts against dandruff causing organism Malassezia furfur
TLDR
It is inferred that plant extracts showed promising activity against Malassezia furfur when compared with the marketed antidandruff shampoos. Expand
Interactions between Clotrimazole and selected essential oils against Malassezia pachydermatis clinical isolates.
TLDR
The obtained results showed synergistic interactions between essential oils and clotrimazole which could improve effectiveness of this antifungal drug. Expand
Inhibitory effect of plant essential oils on Malassezia strains from Iranian dermatitis patients
TLDR
The results indicated that the essential oils tested, especially the one from C. cyminum, inhibited the growth of clinical strains of Malassezia, implying its potential use in the treatment of Malasseszia infections and that this plant may be useful in preparation of new drugs. Expand
Chemical composition and antifungal activity of essential oils of Tagetes minuta (Asteraceae) against selected phytopathogenic fungi
TLDR
This study lays down significant groundwork for a more comprehensive study on the practical feasibility of using T. minuta EOs as possible alternative to synthetic fungicides in the management of economically important phytopathogenic fungi. Expand
ANTIMYCOTIC ACTIVITY OF NONI JUICE AGAINST SEBORRHOEIC DERMATITIS
TLDR
It was determined that Noni juice showed comparatively higher anti-mycotic activity, thus proving as an effective alternative against seborrhoeic dermatitis. Expand
Synergistic effects of some essential oils against fungal spoilage on pear fruit.
TLDR
The usage of a mathematical Gompertz model in relation to fungal kinetics, showed that the model could be used to predict growth curves and showed that double combination of thyme/cinnamon has more inhibitory effect than single EO treatments. Expand
Potential Activity of Some Essential Oils and Human Amniotic Membrane against Malassezia furfur and Staphylococcus aureus Isolated from Pityriasis Versicolor Patients
TLDR
Certain environmental, genetic, and immunological factors can predispose to the conversion of the Potential Activity of Some Essential Oils and Human Amniotic Membrane against Malassezia furfur and Staphylococcus aureus Isolated from Pityriasis Versicolor patients. Expand

TLDR
It was shown that all of the peppermint oils screened strongly inhibited plant pathogenic microorganisms, whereas human pathogens were only moderately inhibited. Expand
Antifungal activity of cinnamaldehyde and eugenol congeners against wood-rot fungi.
TLDR
Results derived from the chemical structure-antifungal activity relationship study suggested that compounds with an aldehyde group or an acid group, a conjugated double bond and a length of CH chain outside the ring affect their antifungAL properties. Expand

TLDR
Five percent tea tree oil appears to effective and well tolerated in the treatment of dandruff. Expand
Evaluation of aqueous extract of leaves of Ocimum kilimandscharicum on wound healing activity in albino wistar rats.
TLDR
The enhanced wound healing may be due to free radical scavenging action and the antibacterial property of the phytoconstituents present in it which either due to their individual or additive effect fastens the process of wound healing. Expand
