Ethical Green Science

It is important to all of us at NitNOT that our solutions are not just effective but that every aspect is also sourced and manufactured ethically. We’re proud to say that not only is our serum the best head lice treatment available; it’s also the greenest!

What’s in our NitNOT ECO Anti Head Lice Serum?

Our serum is a high viscosity liquid made of a mineral oil called dimethicone. Dimethicone is one of the most widely used ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products, including shampoos, make-up and moisturising creams.

We’re not bragging, but our dimethicone is exceptional and is the key to creating the best head lice treatment you can get! Unlike other dimethicone products, ours is 100% fossil-free. The primary raw material used to make our serum is quartz sand, and the production process only uses energy from hydroelectric power sourced from natural waste materials such as straw or grass cuttings. Sustainable and eco-friendly.

What’s our bottle made from?

Our bottle is something called a Biopolymer and HDPE material and, like the treatment serum itself, is made using only renewable sources of production. Not all bottles made from this material are created equal. They don’t all use renewable sources of production, and they are not all 100% recyclable. But with great joy to the NitNOT team; ours is!

The detail behind the science is that our bottle’s production uses ethanol from the waste of sugarcane. Traditionally, bottles like ours contain fossil-based raw materials such as oil or gas, something we wanted to avoid from day one. By choosing this renewable sugarcane source, (which as it grows also captures CO2 from the atmosphere and helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions), we’ve ensured that not only will your hair feel amazing, nit and lice free, but you’ll also feel good inside about using NitNOT products.
