Head Lice and Permethrin

Scientists Determine 99.6% of Lice Resistant to Chemical Treatment

I came across this article today. It's hard to believe that permethrin has been banned in UK and Europe, but we still continue to sell them over the counter here in the US. It also talks about how Permethrin can damage children before they are even born from mother’s exposure raised the cancer risk for infants. http://enewspf.com/latest-news/science/science-a-environmental/50886-scientists-determine-99-6-of-lice-resistant-to-chemical-treatment.html
 

All Natural and Organic Treatment

Toxins vs. Natural!!!  If you choose to purchase some of the commonly known over the count Head Lice-Killing products, understand that they're all pesticides, and contain permethrin (toxic to the nerves). Not only have Head Lice become immune to all the pesticides, but do we really want to treat our children with poison? At Magic Nit Pick we use All Natural, and Organic products to treat Head Lice. Don't wait for your child to come home with Lice.
