How is Nix Different

When it comes to treating head lice, treatment should begin as soon as symptoms of lice are noticed or when live lice and nits are seen on your child’s body or clothing. You want a treatment that kills not only lice but also their eggs (nits). But with a number of different lice treatments to choose from, how do you know what’s best for your child?

The medicine in Nix® is recognized as the most effective over-the-counter treatment for killing lice and their eggs according to the Academy of Pediatrics. That’s why parents turn to Nix®, the #1 Pediatrician and Pharmacist recommended brand…trusted by mom…and hated by lice.

Nix pioneered the development of Nix Ultra - pesticide-free lice treatment products that kill both lice and pesticide resistant superlice. Superlice are head lice that have genetically mutated to become resistant to the active ingredients in some traditional lice treatment products and they have quickly become the dominant head lice species in the United States. They do not look any different from regular lice and can only be identified by their resistance to traditional lice treatments, making Nix Ultra the best choice when it comes to combating lice. Here are some other things to know about Nix Ultra®:

  • Nix® Ultra is a pesticide free formula
  • Nix® Ultra kills lice, superlice and their eggs
  • Nix® Ultra is safe for use on children as young as 2 years of age
  • Nix® Ultra does not contain any parabens, dyes or colorants
  • NEW! Nix® Ultra now has a daily leave-in spray to defend and repel against future lice infestations
