How does SORA LOTION work?
Dimethicone is a colorless and odorless synthetic polymethylsilicone oil with a silky non-greasy consistency. It is widely used in cosmetic industry. It is not absorbed though the skin and is used as a skin protectant.
Dimethicone, due to low surface tension, penetrates into the smallest spiracles, i.e. to the tracheal system of the parasite and obstructs them thus blocking oxygen supply. Lice and eggs (nits) become suffocated and dried within 10 minutes. After application of a dimethicone-containing preparation the parasite cannot regain its life functions.
Dimethicone also lowers adhesion of nits which makes it easier to comb them out. Dimethicone action is purely mechanical so lice and nits cannot acquire resistance to any components. Therefore, SORA LOTION can be safely used in case of lice recurrence.
