Don’t Bite Me Patch Ingredients:
Vitamin B1 is the key ingredient in the Don't Bite Me! Patch. When Vitamin B1 metabolises in the body it reduces human odours attractive to insects. The thiamine (Vitamin B1) based formula is absorbed into the bloodstream through our topical patch and excess Vitamin B1 is then excreted through the body's pores. This makes a slight odour that is almost undetectable to humans, but that insects don't like. This slight "odour" forms a protective barrier around the body that makes you unattractive to insects.
Vitamin B1 is also good for the nervous system, digestion, muscles, and heat and alcohol-damaged nervous tissue. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Vitamin B1 is 1.4 mg per day. As Vitamin B1 is water-soluble, any excess you may consume is safely excreted in urine and sweat.
Aloe is the secondary ingredient in our "Don't Bite Me! Patch." The uses for Aloe Vera have been revered for a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic purposes for thousands of years. Aloe Vera contains anti-inflammatory properties which may explain why it has been reported to alleviate pain and swelling associated with itches and burns. Because Aloe Vera is not considered an essential nutrient, there is no RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) set. It is a very safe plant with no known toxicity.
The topical delivery or our ingredients is what makes the patch so effective. Topical medical delivery and release systems have been on the market since 1982. After more than 20 yeas of extensive development, most major pharmaceutical companies now market topical systems for dispensing a great variety of pharmaceutical agents. The topical delivery and release system provides a highly efficient, safe and easy to use method for delivering active ingredients and other compounds to the body through intact skin, thereby offering many advantages over the traditional dosage forms.
