✔ The Insect Shield® process binds a small amount of permethrin tightly to fabric fibers for effective, odorless insect protection that lasts 70+ washes to create mosquito proof clothing.
✔ 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.
✔ Insect Shield® mosquito proof clothing can be used by the entire family with no restrictions for use, even for pregnant and nursing women, infants and kids of all ages.
✔ 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.
✔ 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.
