Bite Block is effective in repelling mosquitoes ultimately making it the safer way to keep mosquitoes at bay!
What is DEET?
DEET is the most common active ingredient found in insect repellents. DEET is also used as a solvent and can dissolve plastics, fabrics, and even painted surfaces like nail polish. DEET is absorbed into the body through the skin, passes into the bloodstream, and is excreted through urine within 24 hours.
Safer Alternatives to DEET: Picaridin and Citronella
Bite Block Kids contains the active ingredient Picaridin. It is as effective as DEET in repelling mosquitoes, however, Picaridin does not dissolve plastics, erase permanent markers on skin, and remove nail polish. Bite Block Naturals contains the active ingredient Citronella. Citronella oil is a natural insect repellent. It works by masking body odor and carbon dioxide to discourage mosquitoes, thereby repelling them. It provides protection in different formats: spray, lotion, and patches. Lotion is applied onto the skin while the spray and patches can be applied to clothes, strollers and beddings. Use Bite Block Citronella Spray to recharge the scent of the Bite Block Citronella Patches for prolonged effectivity. Bite Block Naturals is paraben-free and non-toxic.
