Update on Polytar Scalp Shampoo Availability

Following recent availability issues, the shampoo is set to be available again from 24th January 2019.

We contacted the manufacturer, GSK, who confirmed there is currently a shortage of the product due to manufacturing issues. However, GSK also assured us that it has now returned to full production manufacturing and Polytar Shampoo will be available in pharmacies again from 24th January, 2019.
