The active ingredient Permethrin and Applications in life

In 1973, the active ingredient Permethrin was discovered sold in pharmacies in the US, then was first registered with the UNITED STATES ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (U.S. EPA) in 1979 and re-registered in 2006. Permethrin is a synthetic active ingredient of the Pyrethroid group which is naturally extracted from Chrysanthemum flowers.

Researchers tested a group of women who used several products containing 4% Permethrin all over their bodies to treat scabies during pregnancy. Another group of pregnant women uses products containing 1% Permethrin for head lice treatment. Permethrin exposure did not affect the pregnancies of any women in either group. According to the analysis of the research team, when 1% Permethrin applied to human skin is brought into the body, most of it will be absorbed quickly. However, if people inhaled Pyrethroid which easily entered the body, no evidence of Permethrin existence was found afterward. Once Permethrin is absorbed, it quickly moves throughout the body for 3 to 4 hours. After that, Permethrin leaves the body mostly through urine, but also possibly through stools.

In Vietnam, Permethrin always accompanies campaigns against infectious diseases and blood fever caused by mosquitoes. In addition, it is also applied to the scabby and head lice treatment on the body with topical cream. On December 07th, 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) selected Sumitomo mosquito nets containing Permethrin in its "global anti-malaria" program.

In agriculture, Permethrin protects crops such as wheat, corn, and alfalfa..., and kills poison, leaf-eating worms, rice leaf rollers, cotton borers, fruit borers on beans, and relaxes... for a bumper crop.

In veterinary, Permethrin fights mites, ticks, scabies, lice, mites, rats, ants, and parasites to protect pets such as dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, cows, buffaloes, and the health of humans living around them.
