Effectiveness of "Natural" Lice Products 0
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!

LiceGuard® No Nit Kit that is non-toxic and pesticide free. The kit contains a shampoo, magnifying glass, and micro-tine comb. Lice eggs are covered in a sticky substance which binds them to human hair follicles. LiceGuard’s shampoo loosens that grip and allows lice and eggs to be picked out of the hair easily and effectively.
LiceGuard® Lice Repellent is one of the few non-toxic repellents on the market. It utilizes a proprietary repelling ingredient developed over a decade ago, tested extensively, and protected under trade secret. With a few squirts, it prevents lice with 24 hour protection.
Lice resistance is creating a vicious cycle: frustrated parents overusing pesticide-based treatments that don’t work – resulting in dangerous levels of toxicity in children.

RobiComb doctor recommended in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology
“As a dermatologist, I have not been particularly impressed with the efficacy of available chemical pediculicides in the treatment of head lice. I chanced upon what has now become my treatment of choice for head lice, the LiceGuard® RobiComb. This non-chemical therapeutic modality is not only painless and odorless, but also has been efficacious each of the six times I have used it. Furthermore, therapeutic resistance does not seem to be a consideration because the mechanism of action is fundamentally electrocution.” Kenneth S. Resnik, MD
