I am so truly excited about this product! Finally a great alternative to DEET spray on repellent.
If you are from Canada you may have seen this innovative product on the Dragon's Den show recently(click here to watch it!)
As a mom I have mixed feelings about DEET repellent . Since we live near swampy areas I want to use some sort of repellent to keep the disease carrying mosquitoes away ( West Nile Virus ) But I have been reading all the cautions with DEET and wonder how safe it really is. Click here to read about the hazards of DEET.
We all know that mosquito bites are just plain itchy and can ruin a perfectly good summer's day. Well not anymore thanks to the Insect Defend Patch! The patch is approximately 5.5cmx5.5cm.
The way it works is you apply a patch to a hairless part of your body at least 2 hours before exposure to mosquitoes. The Vitamin B1 in the patch discreetly excretes from your pores and mosquitoes don't like the taste and won't bite.
-All Natural vitamin B1
-Contains no DEET
-Can be used on children as young as 1 yr old(apply to middle of back to avoid choking risk)
-Lasts up to 36 hours (24 hr timed release and 12 hour residual effect)
-The more you perspire the better it works!
