Malassezia Globosa is a naturally occurring microbe that can be found on every scalp. It feeds on the natural sebum oils on the scalp. Sebum supplies the scalp and hair with moisture and is important for maintaining the scalp's natural balance.The microbe produces a by-product from its nourishment, commonly known as oleic acid. Nearly one in two people is sensitive to oleic acid and the body reacts by becoming irritated and inflamed. Sometimes the scalp becomes reddened or itches very severely. As a response to the oleic acid, the body produces more skin cells. These skin cells are the visible white flakes or dandruff that can be seen at the hairline or on the shoulders.
