Nit-Sized Creature Creates Huge Business Opportunity

Larada Sciences offers entrepreneurs the chance to profit from head lice.

Many companies believe the economic recovery is moving at a slow pace, but not Larada Sciences. The company has been expanding, and aggressively working with entrepreneurs and investors across the country who wish to open their own service businesses – and providing their communities with an effective solution to a pesky problem – lice. Head lice are tiny, wingless, parasitic insects that live on human heads and can infest anyone with hair. One in twenty children in the United States has head lice right now. Eggs hatch 1-2 weeks after being laid. It takes about 14 days for lice to mature; once they are mature enough to reproduce, the infestation is rapid. If head lice weren’t scary enough, 60 percent of the itchy pests are now resistant to one or more common treatments, according to a new study published in the “New England Journal of Medicine.”

Introducing AirAllé™, a patented lice treatment by Larada Sciences that is extremely effective. The firm is the only provider of the FDA-cleared heated air device that kills lice and nits (eggs) in a one-time treatment. The non-toxic treatment takes about an hour and can be guaranteed.

Based in Salt Lake City, the company has built the largest network of lice-removal professionals and is expanding daily. AirAllé is a proven success with tens of thousands of treatments at 180+ salons and mobile distribution outlets throughout the world. Although the treatment network is growing, it is hardly enough to satiate the demand of over 200 million lice cases globally. “We’ve been an AirAllé treatment center for a couple of years. Our business is growing, and the work is very satisfying. Parents call us in a panic, and it is gratifying to be in a position to help with a solution that is chemical-free and effective,” said AirAllé licensee Mandy Ottesen, owner of Jacksonville, Florida’s Fresh Heads Lice Removal.

AirAllé’s revolutionary lice treatments are becoming the standard of care around the world. “The company’s innovation is evolving the options for treatment of this pernicious problem, and its distribution model is creating a successful business opportunity for entrepreneurs,” said Alan Hall, a board member of the Utah Technology Council.

Larada Sciences is looking for entrepreneurs and investors eager to build a successful business venture and become a part of a growing professional lice-treatment network.

“AirAllé is a tremendously effective solution for a pesky problem. It is also a solid business opportunity with a huge market, and a product that works with a real competitive advantage,” said Claire Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of Larada Sciences. “Our providers are so confident in the effectiveness of an AirAllé treatment they are able to offer guarantees for their services. The value of the service allows our licensees to charge a premium. Parents are willing to spend the money necessary for treatment solutions that are fast and effective. Modern parents lack time and patience to spend weeks treating lice with home treatments that are messy and far less effective.”
