Cinchona is derived from the bark of trees in the Linnaean genus, found in South America, Java and India. It is known for its refreshing and cooling benefits, especially for problem skin. In tropical areas Cinchona is commonly used to treat malaria and fever.


Great Burdock is a gentle, natural ingredient known for centuries to help improve dry skin.


Tea Tree Oil is derived by distilling the leaves of the Southern Australian Melaleuca tree. This aromatic, almost colorless oil penetrates quickly and is beneficial for problematic skin. Australian Aborigines have been known to use it to treat skin, while European explorers once used it as an herbal tea.

Do you have massage oil for the scalp? Also, is the Tea Tree Shampoo all natural without sulfates, parabans etc.

My hair gets greasy very quickly. I can't really go more than 1 or 2 days at most without washing it, even without using conditioner. Would this product help my problem?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
I love your tea tree oil shampoo. It helps keep my scalp from itching. I used your conditioner, also, but you don't seem to carry it now. I seem to be allergic to any type of fragrance and wheat products. What happened to the conditioner?
I also need a styling gel. A tea tree oil one would be great! Please help! Your products have been the best I can find, until you stopped offering them.
I have nothing on my scalp. It's healthy, just itches all the time!

What percentage tea tree oil is in this shampoo? I'm looking for one with at least 5% tea tree oil. Thanks!
Janet M on Jan 6, 2013
Best Answer: I looked on the bottle and it does not provide the percentage. It is a nice, invigorating shampoo that I recommend as part of a suite of ones to use.

is this the closest Kiehl's product to the shampoo i love but which as been discontinued, apparently: Herbal?
candace s on Apr 30, 2012
Best Answer: To the best of my knowledge, Kiehl's Herbal Shampoo was specifically formulated to combat dandruff and other scalp "issues". Tea Tree Oil Shampoo is not in that category. It does, however, have a very appealing and clean scent - almost wants me to avoid following it with conditioner. The Tea Tree formulation also contains a compound designed to mitigate surface tension (surfactant) and therefore rinses out extremely well. Altogether, a very fine product.

I've got a oily scalp with dry hair that is sensitive as well; will this shampoo work or could I face the possibility of having a painful scalp again?
Elizabeth M on Apr 10, 2012
Best Answer: I have oily scalp and at times frizzy hair. I actually don't remember what this shampoo did for me, but it just so turns out that yesterday, I read this article about how only a few shampoo makers in the market today are free of hazardous chemicals such as paraben and sodium-something-or-other, and one of them was kiehls. (There were 3 other brands that I won't mention here.) I am about to reconsider opting into either kiehls or one of the other three makers, and I think you should too, if you've heard good things about this particular product. Although these chemicals aren't about to show visible damage right away, it will in the long run, becoming the cause for cancer, hair loss, etc. Kiehl's was fortunately one that did not use these chemicals! I just thought I'd let you know that. I do remember my scalp being less greasy with this shampoo.

Just wondering is this product good for very oilly hair?
david s on Apr 5, 2012
Best Answer: I have used this for years, and I love it. I don't use it daily, but I do use it a few times a week, especially over the summer in the Atlanta heat and humidity, which always makes my scalp more oily! In the winter months when I am not as oily, I use it 1-2 times a week.

I hope this helps.

I have an itchy scalp but no other symptoms of any kind. I find myself literally scratching my head in my sleep at night.It seems to bothere me more at night than in the day. I have been to 3 Drs.and am on an anti-depressant--Doxiipin which has helped a lttle bit. I did Google the medicine and it said that it was used to treat itching problems in older people. I am 79 so that includes me. HA!!!
Any idea?????????

A shopper on Mar 15, 2014
Best Answer: This shampoo makes your hair and scalp feel very clean. Tea Tree oil is supposed to be a good cleanser, but it cleans so well that I find it can be too drying for the scalp and hair, so I don't know whether it will cure the itching or make it worse.
