As the trusted expert, you need Vamousse on your side. Vamousse offers the only comprehensive head lice solutions for every head lice need families and teachers encounter –treatment, emergency protection, and repellent.

A Scientific Look

Clinically proven
Vamousse Lice Treatment is clinically proven to kill both lice and eggs in one treatment – even super lice.1 Vamousse’s active ingredient, natru m muriaticum (sodium chloride) ends an infestation fast. The protective lipid layer of the adult lice is compromised by the advanced formulation to rapidly deliver the active ingredient to the louse, causing a rupture of the intestinal tract followed by dehydration.2 Eggs are similarly dehydrated, rendering them no longer viable.

Scientific studies
Vamousse Lice Treatment was tested using internationally recognized ASTM testing protocols.3 Following these industry standards, the products were tested in the laboratory on body lice, head lice and head lice eggs collected from volunteers in South Florida. Lice in this geographic area have been extensively documented to have developed genetic resistance (99%) to the traditional lice treatment active ingredients, pyrethrin, and permethrin, commonly in products like Rid® Lice Killing Shampoo and Nix® Permethrin Cream Rinse.4

Six replicates of 10 lice each were performed [for both the product and control]. The test exposed the lice to Vamousse Lice Treatment for 15 minutes, per product instructions, followed by a warm water rinse.

The Facts

VAMOUSSE LICE DEFENSE DAILY SHAMPOO KILLS RECENTLY CONTRACTED LICE
Vamousse Lice Defense Daily Shampoo was tested using internationally recognized ASTM testing protocols.1 Following these industry standards, the products was tested in the laboratory on body lice and head lice eggs collected from volunteers in South Florida. Lice in this geographic area have been extensively documented to have developed genetic resistance (99%) to the traditional lice treatment active ingredients, pyrethrin and permethrin.2

Ten replicates of 50 lice each were performed for both the product and a water control. The test exposed the lice in pouches to Vamousse Lice Defense Daily Shampoo for three minutes, per product instructions, followed by a warm water rinse at the same time daily over seven days. 100% of the treated lice were killed after four consecutive applications. (Please follow product instructions to use daily for at least 10 to 14 days after exposure to kill any lice that may have hatched.)
