KP24 Rapid has a physical action towards the lice instead of attacking their nervous system.KP24 Rapid dissolves the wax covered exoskeleton of the head lice which protects them against water loss, critical to its survival. This causes head lices to dehydrate and die. KP24 Rapid also smothers and blocks their breathing system, rapidly immobilising the head lice. This assists with the removal of head lice using the metal lice comb.
KP24 Rapid contains eucalyptus oil and tea tree oil. Tea tree oil has antiseptic properties which can help soothe the irritated scalp that has been affected by head lice. Both eucalyptus and tea tree oil also have shown to have a repellent effect on head lice.
For best results, inspect all members of the family for lice- if necessary treat at the same time. Do not share towels, pillow cases, combs or brushes. Soak items such as sheets, pillow cases, headbands, hats etc in KP24 soaking solution prior to normal washing to kill the remaining head lice.
If lice or more eggs appear after the third treatment, seek advise from a healthcare professional.
KP24 Rapid is not recommended for children under 2 years.
