As many of you will know this product vanished from the market for some time. My understanding is that this happened because when its licensing came up for renewal the content meant it would have had to go through heavy retesting etc. Quite a lot of OTC products are having this problem. So one option is to reformulate so that it is easier to re-market it and I guess this is what has happened here. I bought a pack of six because I have always found it to be useful for scalp problems and even spots in the hair. This product is a disappointment. It is a much lighter and thinner liquid and so far it has not had the same result as the old product. Cant fault the service from Chemist Direct though, which was excellent.
