Polytar returns after long absence

Polytar is available once again after a long absence from the nation’s pharmacy shelves. The medicated shampoo contains coal tar solution for the treatment of scaling scalp disorders including seborrhoeic dermatitis, psoriasis and dandruff.

Lisa Goodman, brand manager at GSK, said: “With consumers’ wellbeing at the heart of what we do at GSK, making the Polytar brand available again was an absolute must for us, despite past supply issues. We are sure its return with the launch of Polytar Scalp Shampoo will be welcomed by previous users and we are looking forward to working with pharmacists to ensure that sufferers are aware that a product from the Polytar brand is available again.”

Legal classification GSL; rsp £5.49 for 150ml.
