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.

    Been using Leonor Greyl products for a couple of years now, I love how nicely everything works and the scents are divine. Need to add this to my shampoo arsenal.

    I love this shampoo – the smell, the consistency, the gentle nature of it. When my young daughter got dandruff, I turned to this shampoo as a clean, natural alternative to the drugstore anti-dandruff shampoos. It has helped clear up her dandruff. We will continue to use this when needed. The only aspect of the shampoo that is negative is the price. It’s very expensive so the small amount you get. That is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    this product works perfect !

    This shampoo is too harsh for me. It feels like someone tightened my scalp, it is ok for my hair but not for my scalp. I am sure it works for many people, just not me!

  5. J.N.

    I have used many high end shampoos and this one is it! An amazing clean, shine and it really does take off grime/dandruff from your scalp. Gives you that squeaky clean feel but yet doesn’t strip/dry out your hair. I thought I would never find a product like this and I’m so thankful to have found it! I only buy in the professional size now; that’s how much I love this! I love too its faint, pleasant smell; a honey like smell. This scent is NOT bothersome at all. If it was, I wouldn’t be able to use it with my sensitivities.

  6. Isabella

    My favorite shampoo for sure! It solves the itchy problem for me.

  7. Carmen

    I use BAIN TRAITANT À LA PROPOLIS for more than seven years and I can not imagine the life without it. I have a mild seborrheic dermatitis and my scalp is flaking in the front and back. I have tried many shampoos before, but the result was not satisfying. BAIN TRAITANT À LA PROPOLIS does the best job to control flakes and itchiness on my scalp.
    One summer when I traveled back to my country and a pharmacist recommended me to try something with propolis. After returning to US the only option was Lenor Greyl and, although is expensive, the result is amazing. I am using the shampoo twice a week and when washing I message 3-5 min before rinse. If I switch only one week to another shampoo flakes and itchiness are back.
    Thank you Lenor Greyl! I hope you will keep up with the quality and do not ever discontinue such an effective treatment.

    I started using this about 3 months ago and I alternate with the Bain au Miel. My scalp really is healthier. I have really fine hair and usually, even hard water could make my scalp flaky but I have not had that problem recently.
    I’d say it’s a great shampoo alternate combo for very fine hair and healthy regrowth/ scalp issues.

  9. Lee Ferguson

    I started using the Bain de Propolis at my stylist’s recommendation–she used it on me at a haircut a couple of years ago and said her other clients had great results with it. I decided I’d give it a shot because I’d tried everything else.

    This is hands down the absolute best shampoo I have ever used on my stubborn scalp. I have had dandruff since I was a child, and no other scalp treatment has worked like this shampoo has. This shampoo reduces my scalp flaking, irritation, and breakouts. Add this with the Creme aux fleurs and my hair and scalp are the healthiest they have ever been. So glad my stylist started using this on me at my hair appointments! You’ve got a customer for life in me.

    I’ve been purchasing this shampoo for the last 10 years. I splurge on it here and there since it’s quite expensive, but let me tell you it’s worth every cent. I’ve suffered from chronic seborrheic dermatitis my whole life and this is the only shampoo that is able to calm my flakes effectively. It’s even more effective than some of the prescription products my dermatologist has prescribed to me in the past. I will forever love the formula of this shampoo!!
