HDM mineral is our magic component that is combined at the time of manufacture within a proprietary waterless coconut based conditioner. The high pH alkalinity of the finished product immediately dehydrates lice including their eggs – but is also safe for humans and the environment. HDM mineral uses “Hydrogen Ions” which are positively charged atoms of hydrogen. Their use creates an extremely elevated pH level. This is harmless to skeletal creatures like humans, dogs, cats, etc. However, it is harmful to exoskeletal creatures such as crabs, lobster, lice, ants, fleas, grasshoppers and cockroaches. Although HDM mineral packs a meaner punch than the bygone chemicals, it can also be eaten. HDM mineral is a green, all natural and safe product which is even used today as a baby food preservative. Current treatment using pesticides and enzyme-based shampoos require multiple treatments and are not 100% effective because they do not kill lice eggs. Over the years, head lice have acquired resistance to current compounds.
While they may be partially effective in destroying adults they have little effect on their eggs which become adults – thus recycling the problem.
