Gallinée Skin Care

Soothing Cleansing Cream




Forget the foam

Soothing and Cleansing. Perfect for all scalp and hair types, even sensitive ones, our Soothing Cleansing Cream leaves hair clean, healthy and shiny, without foaming!


At the forefront of cosmetic innovation, Gallinée is launching the first prebiotic range to gently care for hair and balance your scalp’s microbiome. Traditional shampoos and conditioners may make you wash your hair more often due to the increased sebum production caused by ingredients such as traditional surfactants and sulphates. The scalp’s microbiome plays a crucial role in the regulation of sebum when unbalanced it can lead to itchiness, dandruff and even hair loss. So, it makes sense to take care of it.

Enriched with fermented rice water and our unique pre and postbiotic complex to help support your scalp's microbiome, the gentle non-foaming Soothing Cleansing Cream soothes the scalp and leaves hair healthy and shiny.

Non-foaming, Sulfate-free and dermatologically tested. Suits all scalp types, even the most sensitive ones.

Marie’s word, founder of Gallinée:

“The creamy shampoo that doesn’t foam but cleans to perfection and leaves my bleached fine hair all soft. It takes a bit of time to use it best, but the fermented rice water is a great ingredient to both soothe the scalp and reduce the sebum production.”

Key Ingredients

ULTRA GENTLE CLEANSING BASE: Our non-foaming cleansing base is derived from coconut and fruit sugars, 100% natural and non-ionic

LACTIC ACID: The gentlest of AHA. The lactic acid helps the skin to stay at its optimal pH level and has hydrating and softening properties. Gallinée uses a slow-release form to suit even sensitive skin.

PREBIOTICS: A mix of ultra-gentle fibres and sugars that feed your skin’s good bacteria and help support the skin’s barrier, with an antibacterial action against bad ones

FERMENTED RICE WATER: Rice water has been traditionally used as facial and hair wash for centuries by Asian women to improve skin complexion and hair condition. Nutritious rice water fermented by Saccharomyces is a favorable ingredient known to keep healthy and shiny hair.

MAFURA OIL: Known for its soothing properties, this oil is helps moisturise deeply. Its revitalising properties are very interesting for protective products. It is particularly suitable for delicate scalp.

TOCOPHEROL: A strong anti-oxidant, it protects the skin from external aggressions, and prevents ageing skin. This is the scientific name for vitamin E.

PHYSIOLOGICAL PH: All Gallinée products are made to match the optimal pH of the scalp and the microbiome.

WITHOUT: Doesn’t contain sulphates, soap, colourants, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, microbeads, phenoxyethanol or methylisothiazolinone.


Apply onto your roots and massage into the scalp and wet hair. Leave for up to two minutes then rinse.

Gallinée’s founder, Dr Marie Drago, recommends alternating with your normal shampoo at first. Start using it once or twice a week instead of your normal shampoo, with the time you will notice hair needs washing less often.

    My hair is so much softer and healthier… I don’t think I’ll be going back to foam.

    Ne changez jamais la compo svp !!!!
    Le seul shampooing à ce jour que je peux mettre sur mon cuir chevelu sans faire de réaction allergique…

    Mon (désormais) soin favori cheveux et cuir chevelu ! Je ne pourrais plus m’en passer. Je suis passée d’un lavage quotidien pour soulager mon cuir chevelu irrité à un lavage tous les trois à quatre jours, sans effet regraissant. Ce soin permet à mes boucles de rester hydratées, souples, mes cheveux sont brillants et en pleine santé. J’ai ajouté un embout applicateur à la place du bouchon fourni pour appliquer la crème directement aux endroits sensibles de mon cuir chevelu. Je l’applique aussi en masque cheveux sur cheveux humides et laisse poser des heures avant de rincer, résultat optimisé, cheveux hydratés ET nourris. Comme j’en ai toujours en réserve 😉 , je ne laisse qu’un tiers à la moitié du produit dans le flacon et j’ajoute de l’eau pour le liquéfier car la crème lavante est assez épaiss. Diluée, elle passe ainsi plus facilement dans mon embout applicateur pour aller directement aux racines. Il faut persévérer car les problèmes de cuir chevelu ne se règlent pas en trois shampoings ! Après plusieurs mois, j’affirme qu’il a apaisé mon problème à 90%.

    I tried this cleanser on the red, flakey patches I have at the front of my hairline and the area was definitely less tight and itchy after my shower. I have only recently started having this issue(in last year) where the skin near my hairline would become red and inflamed with large sections of skin would just flake off en mass. I have been using the cleansing cream in conjunction with the scalp cream for almost two weeks and I notice that the size of the patches seems to have decreased along with the number of visible flakes. The formula is very soothing for both products and not heavily scented like other scalp products and I am really hopeful that it will get rid of the patches:)

    I’ve only ever used conventional foaming shampoo before but was intrigued to try this as it mentioned smoothing frizzy hair. I’ve only used it once so far, I was concerned it would leave my hair greasy but not at all! It left my hair fresh and clean, even slightly softer, with the lovely delicate Gallinée scent. I can’t comment yet on prolonged use, but I am very hopeful it will have a beneficial effect!!

    I’m two washes in with this and the conditioner; already my hair feels thicker and smoother (and my unhappy scalp is improving). So glad I gave it a shot.

  7. laurawilk

    I love this product! I’ve struggled with itchy scalp for years and I’ve never been able to find anything to calm it but this works wonders – it makes my hair feel so soft and I can’t recommend it enough.

  8. miniwardie (verified owner)

    I love this product, I was a bit unsure about trying it but after reading the reviews I thought I would give it ago. It works a treat on my thin, fine hair that gets greasy very quickly. I will never go back to normal shampoo again. My scalp is not itchy any more and my hair feels lovely and looks much thicker. Thank you!

  9. Elizabeth Rogers (verified owner)

    Amazing. I have thin, fine hair that gets greasy very quickly and I had assumed this would be a ‘good for scalp but probably have to stay in all day as hair will look a state’ shampoo – it is actually amazing, my hair felt clean light and soft. Perfect.

    Originally purchased all of Gallinee’s hair products for my boyfriend that has been struggling with an irritated, dry and flaky scalp for about a year now and just after slowly incorporating these products into his routine over the past two weeks, we’ve noticed a drastic difference in his scalp. Less flakiness and the red, inflamed irritation had calmed significantly. I would highly recommend this for people struggling with painful and embarrassing scalp issues! I’ve even incorporated this routine into my own once every other week or so, and it keeps my hair free of build-up and super shiny! The only reason I’m not giving these products five stars is because of the scent. I’m very sensitive to scents/fragrances and it bummed me out to see Gallinee adding fragrance to their sensitive skin/hair products. It’s not a very strong scent – light and clean, but it, unfortunately, bothers my allergies. I really want to try other Gallinee products but the scent is keeping me from trying them. Other than the fragrance, Gallinee products are definitely worth a try!

    This is remarkable, it *actually keeps my hair cleaner for longer. And makes it really soft.

  12. sofia8753

    Gallinée, so kindly, selected me to try this product which I have been using for a couple of weeks now. I like using a shower brush with it, I think it helps to distribute the cream more evenly and leaves my hair really clean and shiny. I was surprised at how well it helps to control the frizz even on air-dried hair.

  13. Roby (verified owner)

    I like that this is a non-foaming cleansing milk. My hair also feels smoother and I don’t need to apply any conditioner. Scalp is soothed and not itchy.

  14. Andrea Cooke (verified owner)

    I was nervous about using this for the first time as I have ultra fine hair, but was amazed at how brilliantly it works, and it does seem to have made my scalp less irritated.

  15. Marion

    Il est clair que j’ai beaucoup moins de démangeaisons. Surtout les cheveux sont tout doux! Et l’aspect de mes cheveux aussi!! Produit a recommander!

  16. Laure

    Visibly softer hair, which is cleaner longer. Really happy !!

  17. Alexis

    The fact that it doesn’t foam is a real plus! The skin on my skull is much better since I have been using this product, I highly recommend it!
