FDA Clears Piedmont’s Pesticide-Free Head Lice Product For Use in U.S.

Already a top seller in multiple countries around the globe for up to a decade, RESULTZ® Lice & Egg Elimination Kit has now been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for introduction in the U.S.

The new product kills even pesticide-resistant “super lice” and has been scientifically proven in well-controlled U.S. and European clinical studies with both children and adults. The odorless product requires just 5 minutes application time.

The new U.S. kit includes an easy-to-apply liquid and a comb, and is recommended for adults and children ages 2 and older.

Piedmont is seeking a strategic commercial partner for the U.S. launch. For business inquiries, contact Eric Barnett, M.D., Piedmont’s executive vice president of business development, at 336.544.0320, ext. 204.
