INSECT SHIELD® repellent technology
✔ The Insect Shield process binds a proprietary permethrin formula tightly to fabric fibers for effective, odorless insect protection that lasts 70+ washes.
✔ Insect Shield products repel mosquitoes, ticks, flies, fleas, chiggers, ants and midges (no-see-ums), with only a small amount of long-lasting active ingredient.
✔ Permethrin was discovered in 1973. It’s on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system.
✔ Insect Shield puts just enough bug protection right where it is needed—around an individual.
✔ Only a small amount of permethrin is used in each Insect Shield garment, and it is bound tightly to the fabric fibers.
✔ Insect Shield manufacturing processes and procedures are designed to be clean, efficient and contained, and IS facilities use programs that support and promote waste recycling and energy efficiency.
