Effectiveness of "Natural" Lice Products
Beware of the classic "all-natural" tagline when deciding which lice product to buy for your children!
Not only do most of the natural products on the market lack clinical proof of efficacy, they can also be dangerous. For instance:
- The neurotoxin Pyrethrin is actually derived from chrysanthemum flowers;
- Tea tree oil is toxic if ingested;
- Recent University of Maryland Medical Center research warms against pregnant women and small children being exposed to Eucalyptus oil; and
- Lavender oil can have serious side effects and can spur adverse reactions.
In order to avoid any sort of harm, try LiceGuard's RobiComb! It uses electronic pulses to zap lice on contact, removing the need for any potential toxic ingredients. AND there are clinical studies proving its efficacy at removing lice and eggs!
