Product Description:

These innovative patches contain only Vitamin B1 and Aloe. Vitamin B1 when metabolized by the body reduces human odors attractive to insects. The Thiamin (Vitamin B1) based formula is absorbed into the bloodstream through this topical patch and excess B1 is then excreted through the skin's pores. This makes a slight odor that is almost undetectable to humans, but keeps insects away.

Vitamin B1 is 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 added as an anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredient for itches and burns on the skin.

How to Apply: A topical patch is an adhesive patch that is placed on the skin to deliver a time-released dose of active ingredients through the skin into the bloodstream. It is also called a skin patch. Skin patches are an alternative way for the body to absorb ingredients and/or medicines. To prevent skin irritation, use a different site for each application. The most common side effect of the patch is a localized skin rash. The rash generally occurs due to a reaction to the adhesive on the patch or hypersensitivity to Vitamin B1. Use of a topical salve (such as an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream) can usually relieve the discomfort. DO NOT USE THE DON'T BITE ME! PATCH IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO ADHESIVES.

The Don't Bite Me! Patch is also waterproof. Contact with water, when you are bathing, swimming, or showering, should not affect the integrity of the patch.
