Insect Defend Patch
The Mosquito Patch (recently featured on the Canadian Dragons Den) has been getting media exposure again.
Insect Defend Patch, a square self adhesive patch that when applied to the skin (usually shoulder) protects against mosquito and insect bites contains thiamine (vitamin B1).
The ingredients are released into your system through your skin using the Trans-dermal delivery system. Trans-dermal delivery is often associated with products geared towards stopping nicotine addiction and weight loss.
The patch is said to start working within 2 hours of application and can deter mosquitoes for up to 3 days, according to the manufacturers.
There do not appear to be any side effects and it is safe for children and pregnant (or nursing) women, which are ideal for people who are worried about synthetic chemical insect repellents. Price-wise its $6.95 for a pack of 5.
Where To Buy Insect Defend Patch
Is The Insect Defend Patch Recommended Does It Actually Work
At $7 it will not break the bank but clinical proof is conspicuous by its absence . Mosquito and insect bites can be extremely irritating and can spoil a vacation.
Its extremely hard to recommend the Insect Defend Patch over and above the excellent Mosquito Patch – a product that has quickly become the de facto insect repellent patch and can almost boast industry standard status.
Its not cheap at around $30 – $40 but comes with a 100% money back guarantee.
Purchases can now be made direct from the Mosquito Patch website and shipping to Canada is free on selected packages.
