How is Resultz® Different?

Unlike other major head lice treatments:

  • Resultz® does not contain commonly used pesticides
  • The active ingredient in Resultz® is isopropyl myristate, which is widely used in skincare and cosmetic products.
  • Unlike pyrethrins, isopropyl myristate is not a neurotoxin1,2,3 
  • Resultz® is odourless and colourless
  • Resultz® works by dissolving the wax covering on the exoskeleton of head lice causing dehydration and subsequent death
  • Resistance by lice to Resultz® is unlikely because of its physical mode of action.
  • Resultz® head lice treatment is completed in 10 minutes.
