... can you also not find it on the shop shelves anymore?

Maybe just in the Eastern Cape.

I hope it has not been discontinued. Been using it for 40+ years. There is just no alternative that actually works.

Can't find it in JHB anymore either, at least for a month now. I suspect it has been discontinued, can't find any news on that though.

40 years and still not clear ? Works slowly maybe.....
Its like oxygen it only works if you keep taking it.

No reply from Pfizer. Trying some alternatives.

I'm not used to shampoo that doesn't smell like dog shampoo, though.

You can get this at Dischem. Smells just like Denorex.

Do you have seborrhoeic dermatitis? You can try Kez shampoo as an alternative. I do find denorex to work better if the scalp starts to itch.

I am also looking for Denorex which I too started using about 30 years ago. I searched everywhere since last year but xant find any.

The best replacement I have found (thanks to shaheedtait) is Medi TAR from Dischem. Much cheaper than Denorex though; about R45 for 400ml.

It has that same reassuring doggy smell and sh!tty brown colour. Been using it about a month. It's doing the job.

Medi TAR - Dischem
