UK-based Don’t Bite Me Patch has launched a newly formulated Don’t Bite Me Patch that is DEET free, 100% natural – making it a safe and non-irritating product that is perfect for sensitive skin types, and completely waterproof.
Using a natural blend of Vitamin B1 and Aloe Vera, the clear topical patch is applied to the skin and actively deters the unwanted attention of those bugs that just won’t stop biting. No more chemical sprays or sticky lotions, just a simple, easy and discreet adhesive patch that provides up to 36 hours of guaranteed protection.
The Don’t Bite Me Patch sets itself apart from traditional insect repellents by acting as a deterrent, not a repellent. This means insects are stopped in their tracks and ensures no contact is ever made with the skin.
Studies have shown that when applied to the skin Vitamin B1 is actively absorbed into the bloodstream, the excess excreted through the body’s pores. This creates a subtle odour that is undetectable by humans but positively repugnant to bugs. The Don’t Bite Me Patch capitalises on these natural properties, combining the scientific virtues of Vitamin B1 with the soothing properties of Aloe Vera to create a safe and natural form of insect protection that can be applied to the skin in seconds.
Liz Wilkin from Don’t Bite Me Patch said: “The topical delivery and release system provides a highly efficient, safe and easy to use method for delivering active ingredients and other compounds to the body through intact skin, thereby offering many advantages over the traditional dosage forms.
“Whether you are swimming, camping, golfing, gardening, hunting, fishing or watching an outdoor sporting event, you can now enjoy your time outdoors, not dread it!”
The patches are travel friendly and can be stowed in a handbag or similar when traveling without the worry of abiding by the 100ml restrictions, which can make traditional repellents unsuitable. It is recommended that the patches be applied two hours before potential exposure to insects, which means they can be applied on the aircraft, giving protection from the moment of arrival.
