Thanks to Ntrinsiq for sponsoring today’s post.
Planning a camping trip this summer? With the Zika virus all over the news, you are probably a bit nervous about how you are going to protect your family from mosquito bites.
If you are in the same boat I am, you are probably nervous about slathering your kids in chemical-based repellents. Deet kind of scares the pants off me. Fortunately, we have a safe solution that can help you protect your family from mosquito bites this summer.
We are a family of campers and my kids spend more of the summer outside than in so we have to use something to protect them from mosquito bites and keep them safe from the Zika virus and all kinds of other nasty things.
Most mosquito repellants contain DEET. The problem is, DEET based repellents aren’t just hazardous to mosquitoes.
- DEET is a registered pesticide.
- DEET is absorbed through the skin and passes into the blood (up to 17% is absorbed into the bloodstream)
- Combined exposure to DEET and permethrin, a mosquito spray ingredient, can lead to motor deficits and learning and memory dysfunction.
As a mom, the idea of putting something toxic on my kids scares me.
So what do you do to keep your family safe from mosquitos without covering them in chemicals?
Fortunately, we have a solution for you. I just discovered the coolest vitamin-based mosquito repellent patches that are safe for kids.
The N’visib1e patch is a natural, vitamin B-1 Thiamin-based transdermal mosquito repellant, free of harsh chemicals, that becomes effective within 30 minutes of application, lasts up to 36 hours, and is safe for people of all ages.
Camping is a nearly weekly thing for my family this time of year. On any given weekend, at least one of my boys is probably heading out on a camping trip.
My oldest son hates the smell of mosquito repellant so getting him to use anything is a challenge. He was heading out to a campground that I knew was right next to a lake though so mosquito repellant was not optional. It was the perfect chance to try out the N’visib1e patch.
I loved how easy it was to use. My kids hate to mess with sprays so most of the time they don’t even end up using any of the stuff I send them with.
N’visib1e is just a patch. It isn’t messy. It doesn’t make your lungs burn when you use it. You just stick it on and it starts to work within 30 minutes.
Curious how they work?
The patches are effective deterrents because B-1 Thiamin molecules are small enough to transmit into and through skin, and then are excreted through the skin as unmetabolized gas which overwhelms the olfactory receptors of mosquitos, impairing their ability to locate their prey. It’s the masking of the CO2 emissions released through our pores that make humans virtually invisible to the insects that depend on our CO2emissions to hunt. And, unlike insect repellant sprays and lotions that only protect at the skin sites they contact, the patch protects the wearer’s entire body.
They field tested the patches in Africa where mosquitos carry some pretty major diseases like, malaria, dengue, yellow fever, and of course, zika.
The current news about zika is a bit terrifying but I refuse to keep my family inside during the summer and have them miss out on some amazing experiences. I love that there is a safe option to protect them from mosquito bites.
