Description

The Natural Patches Insect Repellent Patch provides a very convenient form of protection from biting insects, without the mess or smell of sprays and creams. To use, simply apply a patch to your body two hours or more before protection is needed.

Each patch can then be worn continually for up to 36 hours, before being replaced by another if further protection is required.

Each patch contains 75mg of Thiamine (Vitamin B1) which is absorbed slowly through the skin.

Your body only needs about 2 mg of Thiamin per day as part of a healthy diet, so the excess Thiamin is passed harmlessly through your urine, your breath and your skin.

Thiamine is odourless to humans but mosquitoes and other biting insects hate it, and hence they will look for alternative sources of food, leaving you bite free.

The patches don’t contain DEET and they are said to be suitable for use with children from the age of two.

Each packet contains 10 patches – enough for up to 15 days protection.

(Please note – Natural Patches should not be relied upon as the only means of protection from insect bites in high risk areas. They should always be used in combination with another repellent such as DEET where there is a risk of catching an insect borne disease.)
