How Does Natroba™ (spinosad) Topical Suspension, 0.9% work?
Natroba™ is applied topically to dry hair and scalp. The mode of action for the active ingredient spinosad is unique. Spinosad causes neuronal excitation in insects. After periods of hyper-excitation the head lice become paralyzed and die.
Ask your healthcare provider if Natroba™ is right for you or your family.
Natroba™ Topical Suspension is a pediculicide indicated for the topical treatment of head lice infestations in patients six (6) months of age and older.

- Wash (in hot water) or dry clean all recently worn clothing, hats, used bedding and towels
