ATC classification

P03AC04 Permethrin

Active ingredients


Indications Hycia

Head and pubic pediculosis (lice).

Release form

The medicine is available in 120 ml vials.


The main components of permethrin are synthetic pyrethroids, which have a weak toxicity and effective insecticidal properties. Therefore, acting as a neuromuscular toxin, it does not affect the body's toxic effects. The duration of the insecticidal action of permethrin is rather short, because under the influence of air it soon disappears - this avoids the risk of accumulation of this substance.

The detergent acts as a combination of sodium alkyl lefosulfate, as well as fatty acid alkyl amides - this gives the preparation foam-forming leaching properties. It should be noted that this substance does not have an irritant effect on the skin.

Acceleration of the process of detachment of nits from the hair occurs under the influence of acetic acid. This substance combines insecticidal and detergent properties.


Permethrin is not absorbed into the circulatory system.
