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.

    This is the best anti dandruff shampoo I have ever used. I have a flakey scalp and usually dandruff shampoos are very harsh for my scalp and my hair and because its so harsh it doesn’t get rid of the problem for me. On the other hand, Bain Traitant à la Propolis eliminated dandruff completely because its so gently and effective and also made my hair so soft and shiny. I am amazed by this product!!! Also bonus its smells so, so wonderful! This stuff is magic.

    I use this as my 1st shampoo to cleanse my scalp and then use the Revivscence for the 2nd shampoo for extra moisture. Perfect combination! Highly recommended!

    I have MAST, so whenever I smell something I dont like I literally get a splitting headache, sometimes vomit. this smells really really nice. I dont have dandruff but use it b/c it smells so darn good.

    I’m allergic to everything, have eczema, flakey scalp, and this is the only shampoo that does not give me little water blisters from allergic reaction, keeps the flakes away, and doesn’t make the rest of my body itchy from contact during shower. and it smells wonderful to boot. hope you never change your formula.

    A lifelong struggle with flaky scalp led me to this shampoo–wish I’d found it sooner! After about 2 weeks of use with this shampoo, I found that the flakiness disappeared almost entirely. The shampoo has a gentle scent, leaves my hair feeling soft, and keeps my scalp from being itchy. I use this with the Creme aux Fleurs and my scalp is the healthiest it has ever been. I’m a customer for life now, thank you!

    My scalp became extremely itchy about a year ago and was developing large scaly parches which came off in patches. I found this shampoo online and has literally saved my scalp. I have no itching or flaking and my hair is so soft. This is truly a miracle product and as a side benefit,it has a remarkable fragrance. Thank you for this remarkable product.
