While scientists did not create the term super lice, it has nevertheless received a lot of attention from the research world in the last few years. It is commonly used to describe lice that are difficult to eliminate. In areas with excessive exposure to pesticide-based products, lice have evolved in order to survive, and because of this, they are now called super lice.
Scientific research has demonstrated that products once useful against head lice have lost their effectiveness and prove that lice have mutated and developed immunity to the pesticides in those products. They have in fact desensitized their nervous systems to the effects of the ingredients, which now no longer kill them.
As lice have mutated, people are erroneously treating and re-treating with these products, which are essentially ineffective in an effort to try and kill all the lice. This repeated use simply makes head lice increasingly resistant, and these products less and less effective.
This phenomenon should come as no surprise. Many other insects have become pesticide resistant after sustained exposure. The prolonged use of these same chemicals has allowed the parasites to broadly resist them. Therefore, they are not exactly ’SUPER’ lice, but simply lice that have mutated to continue to thrive on our hospitable, warm heads.
All this resistance translates to a tremendous waste of time and money, as pesticide-based over-the-counter lice shampoos remain the primary choice for battling head lice. Use of these products may also prolong the discomfort of the patient, since it can take a week or more to determine that the treatment has failed.
What is needed, therefore, is an innovative scientific approach to eliminate lice, one to which they cannot build a resistance. Fortunately, scientific research HAS created a product that does not contain pesticides or toxic ingredients – and now we know that lice will never again become desensitized.
The Licemosis Anti-Lice Gel System and the OsmoBliss Hydrating Shampoo have been formulated specifically for this purpose. They are 100% guaranteed to work against lice, including the “mutated” super lice. For anyone who has previously battled head lice and went through repeated treatments, this is the solution to eliminate all nits and lice in just one 30 minute application.
