LiceMD® a Breakthrough Treatment That's Tough on Lice but Gentle on Kids
Combe Incorporated Introduces Pesticide-Free Treatment That Safely Eliminates Head Lice, Eggs and Nits
WHITE PLAINS, NY--(Marketwire - June 2, 2009) - Did you know that head lice is one of the
most contagious conditions among children, only second to the common cold?
There are about 6 to 12 million cases each year, and it causes children to
miss approximately 12 to 24 million school days annually.
As the weather gets warmer, schools close for the summer and kids venture
off to camp, they are once again faced with the risk of catching head lice.
Head lice can be spread whenever there is direct contact between the head
or hair with an infested individual, as well as by sharing personal
articles like hats, towels, brushes, helmets and hair ties. While parents
want to rid their kids of this pesky problem, they also want to ensure that
their children are not exposed to any harmful ingredients. With the
introduction of LiceMD®, parents can
not only say good-bye to head lice, but they can now also bid farewell to
LiceMD® is a pesticide-free
breakthrough treatment that helps parents take control of lice outbreaks
and achieve peace of mind while restoring their household to its normal
balance. This head lice treatment is
pediatrician-tested and clinically proven to effectively, safely and simply
eliminate eggs, lice and nits without the use of pesticides. LiceMD's primary ingredient is
dimethicone, a safe and effective synthetic lubricant that is odorless,
non-irritating to the scalp and hypoallergenic. Dimethicone makes the
comb-out process smooth and easy allowing the comb to glide easily through
even long, thick or very curly hair. This allows parents to concentrate on
removing the lice and eggs, rather than struggling to pull a fine toothed
comb through tangled hair! And, since LiceMD is pesticide-free, it can be
safely re-applied right away if re-infestation occurs.
In order to educate parents about treating head lice and preventing future
outbreaks, Combe has an educational Web site, www.LiceMD.com. The Web site includes:
-- The latest research
-- Frequently Asked Questions
-- Instructional Video
-- And so much more!
LiceMD® is conveniently available
over-the-counter at food, drug and mass retail outlets.
