Title (EN) HEAD LICE TREATMENT
(FR) TRAITEMENT CONTRE LES POUX DE TETE
Abstract:
(EN) There is provided a novel composition containing neem extract to repel and/or treat head lice in humans. The composition can be regularly applied to the hair and scalp of a human without being greasy and with its presence being generally understated by other humans. The composition broadly comprises a solution of azadirachtin including up to about 1 % of azadirachtin and the balance substantially all solvent suitable for permitting application of the solution to the human head. The solution may include at least 80 % of an alcoholic or spirit solvent, but non-alcoholic solvents may be used to provide a suitable vehicle to deliver the neem extract to the head preferably by means of spraying. The solvent must be able to dissolve the neem extract to produce a fine mist when sprayed and it must be acceptable to use on a human scalp.
(FR) Nouvelle composition contenant de l'extrait de neem comme traitement préventif ou actif contre les poux de tête chez les humains. La composition peut être appliquée régulièrement sur les cheveux ou le cuir chevelu d'un être humain sans graisser et sans que sa présence soit, en général, remarquée par les autres. La composition, dans l'ensemble, comprend une solution d'azadirachtine incluant jusqu'à 1 % environ d'azadirachtine et le reste pouvant être constitué de pratiquement tous les solvants permettant l'application de la solution sur le cuir chevelu. La solution peut comprendre au moins 80 % d'un solvant alcoolisé, cependant des solvants non alcoolisés peuvent s'utiliser comme support adéquat pour appliquer l'extrait de neem sur la tête, de préférence, en le pulvérisant. Le solvant doit être capable de dissoudre l'extrait de neem pour produire un fin brouillard quand il est pulvérisé et être compatible à l'utilisation sur le cuir chevelu.
