The idea of including propolis in a shampoo came to Jean-Marie Greyl after a family trip to Egypt, where he learned that ancient Egyptians used this resin-like bee byproduct to preserve mummies because of its remarkable anti-microbial properties. After 10 years of research, he introduced Bain Traitant à la Propolis to the market in 1994 as the first gentle dandruff treatment shampoo of its kind for everyday use.

    I recently developed a dandruff problem. I tried several products that was recommended by friends but it didn’t get rid of the dandruff and made my hair oily. I have naturally oily hair so I don’t need a product making that worse. My Dr. suggested that I try Leonor Greyl’s Bain Traitant a la Propolis. I fell in love with this product, it smells great and it added just enough moisture to my hair. It didn’t way it down or make it flat either. I definitely recommend this product!

    My holy grail shampoo! I have a dry, sensitive scalp, and nothing has worked better than this. It’s soothing, clarifying, and keeps my scalp healthy. I use this with Creme aux fleurs as well, and couldn’t be happier with the results.

    I used this product as part of sensitive scalp treatment. Nice texture and smells. It reduce the itchiness and sensitiveness of my scalp and I can feel less hair loss.

    Great for itchy scalp that does not have dandruff FLAKES but leaves deposit underneath fingernails when scratched. I am trying to persuade my daughter to use it.

    I need this product for life!!

    I tried all the product on the market to save my scalp until i found this one. This product is amazing as it gives your healthy scalp. Healthy scalp means healthy hair, and even more tight face skin. I recommended this product to my friends and they all felt the same way. This is definitely a life saver

    I struggle with seborrheic dermatitis and while this might not be a cure or a treatment for the scalp condition I have… it’s an INCREDIDLE dandruff shampoo to use on the days that your hair needs a break from the strong prescription shampoos. This is truly the nicest dandruff shampoo. It’s very gentle and I use it when I have a bad flare up on my scalp and and I’m concerned about the health of my hair and the damage the prescription shampoos are causing. I absolutely love it.

  7. Sangeeta

    Like others, no dandruff shampoo worked for me, and they ended up damaging my hair and removing colour. This, however, is a pleasure to use – smell, texture, easy to rinse – and works after just 1 use – and continues to work. Excellent product.

    I had been struggling with dandruff for the last 3 years. I tried everything out there, I started with natural remedies like lime, egg, curd, coconut oil, herbal creams and when those didn’t help I switched to shampoos mild, rough, even baby shampoos. By the time it go so severe that I even had to stop combing my hair so that the dandruff won’t come out from the roots to avoid embarrassment. Finally I visited a dermatologist, as expected he gave a zinc and coal tar rich chemical shampoo which I started using 6 months back. I c’d see it damaging my hair and worse, it didn’t really help my problems, but I had no option. So I kept on using it until one day I came across this product which I never heard of before! Thought I’d give it a try after reading great reviews, got it 2 days back from Amazon. Used it only twice and boom! The dandruff is almost gone and the hair is so soft that I can’t stop touching it! And guess what I started combing my hair after 2 years! I can’t stop smiling looking at my hair in the mirror! Thank you so much Leonor Greyl, you saved my hair!
