These slim Insect Repellent Patches are a must companion for holidays, forest adventures or camping. How it works: The smell of Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) repels insects. The Vie Patch uses Trans-Dermal technology to deliver the natural active ingredient Thiamine into the bloodstream through the skin. The body excretes excess Thiamine through sweat pores all over the body, providing natural full body protection.
Why patches are better than sprays:
1. Most sprays last between 3-8 hours maximum - brand dependant. This patch lasts 36hours. Longer intervals give you more time to do other things instead of remembering to spray repellents regularly.
2. Sprays are difficult to cover some parts of the body e.g face - even a slight spray into the eye can be harmful. The face is exposed during sleep, hence vulnerable to insect bites.
3. In the sun, you want to avoid sun burn and insect bites, but it makes no sense to apply sun burn lotion and repellent spray together. So what is the solution? A tiny Patch hidden on the body leaves you free to apply your sun burn lotion.
4. Some strong repellent sprays containing DEET are known to melt nail polish and corrode plastic. Deet (A pesticide) commonly used in insect repellent sprays have several side effects including rashes, muscle twitching & confusion. If ingested, may affect the central nervous system. Must not be applied over cuts, wounds, or irritated skin. Must be kept away from young children. This insect repellent patch contains only natural ingredients known to deflect insects - No known side effects.
5. Most spray bottles take space and weigh over 120grams each compared to a patch which only less than a couple of grams (space and weight is often limited during travel). Sprays are not waterproof unlike this patch.
Directions of use: Apply the Vie Patch to clean dry and hairless area of the skin for 36 hours. To remove the patch - wet patch and peel off slowly.
