Nanovetor Melaleuca is an active ingredient comprised of multifunctional particles containing Melaleuca essential oil. The active ingredient is suited for use in anti-dandruff and anti-acne products.

The main component of Melaleuca essential oil is terpinen-4-ol, which, according to studies, is responsible for antimicrobial and antiseptic actions that occur through a leukocyte activation mechanism. Its antimicrobial action includes fungi, yeasts, gram-negative bacteria and the herpes simplex virus.

A clinical study comparing formulations containing Melaleuca essential oil 5% and commonly used benzoyl peroxide 5% for acne treatment, showed that both reduced the number of inflammatory lesions. However, formulations with Melaleuca showed less dryness and pruritus (itching) than benzoyl peroxide. In all other evaluated side effects, the group using Melaleuca also had a significantly smaller number (27 of 61 volunteers) relative to benzoyl peroxide (50 of 63 volunteers).

According to HAMMER, Melaleuca essential oil can cause allergic reactions in predisposed individuals, these reactions are caused not by the oil itself, but due to oxidation reaction byproducts that occur by exposure of components to light and oxygen. Encapsulation of the active ingredient promotes controlled release and protects the interaction with the other components of the formula and the environment, preventing oxidation and avoiding potential skin irritation. Encapsulation also promotes occlusion of the characteristic odor of Melaleuca essential oil, ensuring an improvement in the sensory experience of the final product.
