our ingredients

Our ingredients are at the heart of everything we do. Always effective. Always kind.

Since 1964, we’ve been going head-to-head with dandruff and scalp worries, and we’ll never give up until we’ve beaten them for good. That’s why we work closely with dermatologists to make sure our products have the perfect balance of clinically-proven actives and scalp-loving ingredients that care for your hair and scalp.

So, you can be confident that inside every bottle of Head & Shoulders is a kind and effective formula.

Head & Shoulders ingredients

We’re extremely selective with our ingredients because we know what you put on your skin is important to you.

We’ll only ever put the very best ingredients into our shampoos. Some people believe natural product ingredients are safer to use than man-made, synthetic ones. The reality is it’s not that simple. First, we define the safe range for every ingredient, whether natural or synthetic. Then we apply the same science-based approach as regulatory agencies around the world, because your safety is our number one priority.

Our products are packed with effective ingredients that treat your dandruff, benefit your hair and scalp, and make the product more enjoyable to use. We’re also committed to removing the ingredients you don’t feel comfortable with from our formulas. Find out more about them here.
