During WWII, scientists in Switzerland were charged with the task of finding more effective treatments for burn victims. Their great discovery? Panthenol, the pro-vitamin of vitamin B5 which helped treating burns. Inspired by panthenol, Pantene, owned by Swiss drug company Hoffman-LaRoche, makes its debut as a premium hair care line across Europe in 1947, replete with glass bottles and prestige scents. After years of extensive research and development, Pantene launches its most comprehensive and groundbreaking offering in 2012—customized solutions all based on hair structure. If you know the hair you have, Pantene will give you the hair you want.

Pantene products can be found in Clicks stores in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana.

  1. Good day
    I was using Pantene shampoo for as long as I can remmeber and it worked very well with my hair.
    The new formula of the Pantene shampoo’s are not very good as they make my hair very oily and limp,
    it feels like my hair is coated in a layer of grease.
    Please bring back the old formula.
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Lucy, sorry to hear you’re not enjoying your current shampoo. We would recommend getting in touch with Pantene to give them your feedback. In addition, it may be worthwhile investing in a clarifying shampoo that won’t weigh your hair down or make it more oily.

      1. Good day,
        I have recently purchased 2 x 400 and 2 x 750 bottles of Pantene Prov V Repair Conditioner

        The product is excellent but because the product has a thick consistency it is difficult to get it out of the bottle. I sqeeze with my one hand and my body and I cannot get the bottle empty.

        Any suggestions,



        1. Hi Carolyn, an old beauty trick (but still a goodie) is to add a little bit of water to the bottle when it’s almost empty and shake it well. This thins the consistency of the product and allows you to get every last bit out.

    2. I agree with you. Me and my daughter used pantene conditioner for coloured hair now for so many years. The new formula is so bad and I hear that from many people. We try now other brands. Pantene conditioner was always very good but unfortunately they failed with the new formula.
