Ever since my friend Liz from swimming classes spent 30 minutes giving me the full run-down on how to treat those nasty little critters and their eggs, I've been dreading the 'L' letter. Luckily, we escaped this round.
And then it was pure serendipity that a parcel arrived from the lovely people at eco.kid, who create beautiful organic skincare (hair, body, protection). Apart from the great packaging, Australian botanicals and eco-friendly methodology, a bunch of these products promise to help protect against Lice!
There is a Lice Bomb that aids in the removal of head lice and their eggs made from a 100% naturally derived botanical complex of pure plant oils and essences. And there is Prevent, the daily shampoo and Daily Tonic, the leave-in conditioner that make hair unattractive to Lice. This is worth a go!
There are more child-friendly hair and body skincare in the range that all contain certified organic, sulphate free, synthetic free, readily biodegradable ingredients with no artificial preservative, fragrance or colouring. In fact, eco.kid was designed specifically for preventing and treating the hair, scalp and skin issues that affect kids such as dermatitis, eczema, sensitive rashes. No nasties, and no chemical penetration through young skin.
We have tried the TLC body wash, the Prevent daily shampoo and Nourish daily conditioner and we all loved the grapefruity smell. And call me crazy, but I'm looking forward to testing the Bug-a-Bug insect repellent. Fabulous Australian products for our kids.
You can find eco.kid products in the online store and at retail stockists (call 1300 437 436 for a list).
