Dimeticone lotion

Dimeticone lotion
Dimeticon is a type of silicone oil that is used in shampoos and conditioners to give the hair more smoothness and texture. There is a good chance that you have already used dimethicone in another product.
An additional property of high-dose dimethicone is that it effectively eliminates head lice.
The properties of dimethicone according to WikiPedia:
The liquid is clear, colorless, viscous, chemically inert, non-hazardous, non-flammable, and virtually insoluble in water.

The fact that the substance is harmless when used for the hair is evident from the fact that dimethicone is also added to foods, especially jams, marmalade, fruit and vegetable preserves, fruit juices, soups and (frying) fats. It is authorized in the European Union under the E number E900. The acceptable daily intake (ADI) is 1.5 mg/kg body weight.*
Of course, oral use of LuizenWeg is not recommended. Because you can apply locally via the handy dosing mouth, it is easy to prevent the lotion from getting into the eyes or mouth.

Dimeticon works better than natural oils such as olive oil, tea tree oil or neem oil. Dimethicone penetrates so deeply that it has another effect on the louse, whereby it can no longer secrete anything and is therefore eliminated within a few minutes.
Natural oils need 8 hours to suffocate the lice, because lice can survive that long without oxygen, which is why swimming does not help against head lice infestation.
The louse breathes through body openings and has a tracheal system to supply oxygen and excrete CO2 and water. This fine system is deeply penetrated by dimethicone, causing functions to fail.
