Anti-Microbial Activity: In-vitro tests preservative efficacy test with the same germs were conducted
comparing La’LACT with traditional actives. La’LACT was comparable /superior to the other product used in the study:
Elevated production of sebum by hyperactive sebaceous glands (sebaceous hyperplasia) or blockage of the follicle can cause P. acnes bacteria to grow and multiply. The cellular damage, metabolic byproducts and bacterial debris
produced by the rapid growth of P. acnes in follicles can trigger inflammation. The damage caused by P. acnes and the associated inflammation make the affected tissue more susceptible to colonization by opportunistic bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus.
La’LACT reduces the P. acnes bacterial growth, cleanses the pores & the excessive sebum, thus effectively controlling the Acne. La’LACT starts controlling P. Acne bacterias within 20 min., & more effective than Salicylic Acid & Triclosan.

La’LACT against Corynebacterium xerosis
La’LACT neutralizes the body odor without hampering tissue metabolism, or irritating sensitive underarm skin. The performance against C. xerosis has been demonstrated in an in-vitro study: La’LACT effectively controls the bacteria’s causing skin odour.
La’LACT is based on natural derived components which has broad range of anti-microbial activity against bacteria, molds & yeast. It has specifically been optimized to exhibit a well balanced antimicrobial spectrum against dandruff causing fungus viz. M. furfur.
Piroctone olamine & Ketoconazole are anti-dandruff active ingredient which are relatively expensive & have concerns causing irritation, itiching, redness etc. There is a continuing demand for a natural active, as effective and if possible more economic than Piroctone olamine & Ketoconazole.
The yeast Malassezia furfur is known to be a main influencing factor in the formation of dandruff. Therefore all dandruff actives are targeting to eliminate M. furfur on the scalp. As most cosmetic antidandruff products are rinse-off concepts an appropriate active has to exhibit both rapid kill and substantivity to the skin. La’LACT has an excellent performance for the control of Dandruff. It is safe & has multifunctional properties of moisturisation & conditioning for the scalp & hair.

This is important especially for women because the infections with
Candida albicans are quite common and most of the time they could
be avoided by the correct intimate hygiene.La’LACT is effective against
infection causing fungus viz. Candida albicans and some bacterias.
Its efficacy has been checked by the In-vitro test. This will control
the infections because of the Candida albicans. It also helps
control the pH balance & thus provided a natural defense against
irritations, itching, soreness and infection. It provides very mild & effective composition for the female hygiene
Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes but also on the
soles and sides of the feet. It occurs most commonly in people whose feet have become very sweaty
while confined within tight-fitting shoes. It is fungal infection that affects the upper layer of the skin of
the foot, especially when it is warm, moist and irritated. Athlete’s foot is a form of ringworm. The fact is everyone has bacteria and fungus on their skin, which is harmless most of the time. However, in some conditions, fungus and bacteria can cause your skin to become infected.
New, effective ingredients with proven efficacy like La’LACT offer excellent opportunities to position cosmetic brands based on sustainable active ingredients.
The results clearly demonstrate that antimicrobials based on sustainable, regrowing sources can yield the same or even better results as compared to widely used equivalent products like Triclosan,
