Lornamead’s Lice Shield makes its market debut
STAMFORD, Conn. It was one of the products that generated a buzz during the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ Annual conference in April, and now it’s enjoying widespread distribution where lice products are sold. The product is Lornamead’s Lice Shield — a line of hair care products that help repel lice while cleansing and conditioning hair — which officially launched Thursday.
The line includes two SKUs — Lice Shield shampoo and conditioner in 1 and leave-in spray — both of which retail for a suggested $9.99. Lice Shield has been specially formulated with a blend of oils (including citronella, eucalyptus and rosemary) that have been scientifically demonstrated to help repel lice, providing over 80% repellency. Both products are easy to substitute into a child’s daily hair care routine during a period of infestation and were designed with kids’ finer hair and sensitive scalps in mind.
“No parent wants to endure the torture of treating a lice infestation; it’s one of the hardest things to do as a parent, so we developed a product that can help keep lice away in the first place,” stated Randy Sloan, president of Lornamead.

JDRF honors Roche with Chancellor’s Award
INDIANAPOLIS A maker of blood-glucose meters, infusion pumps and other diabetes management tools was awarded by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for its long-standing corporate partnership with the organization.

The bags contain products and materials valued at about $100, which are distributed to families by local Roche and JDRF representatives.
Since 2004, Roche has committed almost $10 million to the Bag of Hope program.
“Roche is an exceptional partner in the education and management of diabetes. During the past several years, the Bag of Hope program has become the cornerstone of our outreach program to families with newly diagnosed children, and we thank Roche for its continued funding of this incredibly important educational initiative,” said Courtney Davies, national director of corporate relations at JDRF.
