Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2008
Lousey Nitpickers®, LLC is pleased to announce the introduction of their new Botanical Defense System™. A complete line of botanically based, non-toxic, paraben-free, sulfate-free products designed to aid in the physical removal of head lice and their eggs while natural, botanical oils protect against future head lice infestations.
"The greatest harm associated with head lice results from the well-intentioned but misguided use of caustic or toxic substances to eliminate the lice," said Richard J. Pollack, PhD, Harvard School of Public Health.
According to the American Head Lice Information Center, "The makers of pediculicides (the chemicals used to treat head lice) take in over $150 million a year from assorted insecticidal louse shampoos, crème rinses, and sprays. Any chemical that kills pests is a pesticide, and all pesticides have the potential to cause serious side effects."
The California State Health Department states that lindane (a potent pesticide used in the treatment of head lice) has contaminated California sewers and water supplies (A single treatment of lindane can pollute 6 million gallons of water). In addition, such pesticides have been shown to damage the liver, kidney, nervous system and immune system prompting the State of California to ban the use of this substance.
Infused with Neem, Tea Tree, and Andiroba oils, Lousey Nitpickers Botanical Defense System offers daily protection against head lice. Bee Propolis soothes irritation and helps speed healing. Lousey Nitpickers Botanical Defense System is gentle enough for all ages and hair types.
