Health Enterprises introducing lighted lice comb at MEDICA

Health Enterprises, Inc., a leading manufacturer of niche health care products, continues its market leadership position for effective lice care products by introducing their new Lighted Lice Comb.

The innovative Lighted Lice Comb features a built-in rotating inspection light, 2 interchangeable metal pin combs, an ergonomic handle and a handheld 5X magnifier. The short and long pins work on all hair types.

“Our lice combs are clinically tested effective at removing lice and nits,” said Brendan Leonard, president at Health Enterprises, “which is why they have been recommended by school nurses in the U.S. for decades and why they continue to be top sellers.”

Studies have shown that mechanical removal of lice and nits with a metal pin comb helps to guarantee success ˡ. Plastic combs tend to bend and spread during combing, allowing tough nits to remain. Health Enterprises’ offers a complete assortment of metal pin lice combs to meet the individual needs of every market segment.

To complement their lice combs, Health Enterprises produces a non-toxic Lice Cure solution using Australian Tea Tree and other natural oils which helps to loosen the glue-like bond that nits form to hair strands for easier combing action.

“Lice Cure is a safe, non-toxic alternative to the many chemical pediculicides on the market”, noted Mr. Leonard, “which is reassuring to parents who are concerned about exposing their children to the harsh chemicals contained in many head lice treatments.”

Health Enterprises, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of branded and private label OTC consumer healthcare products sold in retailers across the globe. For more information about Health Enterprises and its complete product line, visit
