Controlice Head Rinse Lotion

This product is a pesticide-free treatment that can help control lice outbreaks and achieve peace of mind. Its primary ingredient dimethicone, is a synthetic lubricant used as a conditioning agent in many top selling shampoos, odourless and non-irritating.

Studies revealed that dimethicone not only coats the lice, but also enters the stigmata and head trachea, effectively blocking the oxygen supply. Dimethicone lubricates and allows the comb to glide effortlessly through hair, even long, thick or very curly hair. In the study, treatment was combined with combing, contributing to the 95% lice free observation on Day 7 and 97% lice free observation on Day 14 (after two treatments). However, the data suggests that 99% of head lice removed by combing were already dead.

The great thing is that the formula contains no potentially harmful poisons and the active ingredient is not absorbed through the skin. Because Controlice Head Rinse lotion does not work chemically, lice can also not become resistant to it.

So simple to use, users will hardly notice the colourless and odourless lotion when left on overnight. Sufficient per bottle to repeat the treatment within the prescribed seven day period.

  • Non-toxic
  • Odourless
  • Gentle to use
  • Easy to use
