When I used my latest purchase of Ionil T, my scalp begn itching instantly. That led me to look at the bottle. It no longer says, although it used to, 'non-ionic' and the ingredients list includes laureth-4 and laureth-23. They weren't there originally and I doubt they were in the last batch I bought. (I but several at a time because Ionil T can be hard to find.) It is possible to find the old formulation anywhere? Might the manufacturer be convinced to make it again, as a specialty item, perhaps? Has anyone else noticed the difference? Does anyone know of a coal tar shampoo _without_ ingredients that start with 'laur' or sulfates?
Ionil T worked for me for 40 years, but no more. Formulation has been changed Why did they do that?

It sound like your coal tar shampoo base has been replaced by a bulk soap product the Chinese call 'soap noodle' which is the nastiest cheapest soap product a manufacturer can buy and then had additives added to fool you that it is actually coal tar soap based. It is not Ph balanced and is an irritant.
