It's now officially mosquito season here in the Northeast — yuck. And flies, and gnats, and any other kind biting insect you can think of. But we can now feel a bit more at ease when enjoying our glass of wine at dusk with Don't Bite Me!. What's cool is that it's an all-natural insect repellent skin patch, versus a spray or cream, which uses Vitamin B1 to ward off insects and mosquitoes for up to a whopping 36 hours.Here's how it works: Don't Bite Me! uses a discreet, all-natural transdermal skin patch that delivers a blend of protective Vitamin B1 and aloe combination throughout the body. Excess B1 is secreted through the body's pores, creating a scent that is almost undetectable to humans, but offensive to mosquitoes. This scent forms a protective barrier around the body that shields the user from mosquitoes and other biting insects. Aloe, the other active ingredient, accelerates the absorption of the B1 and serves as an anti-inflammatory. For maximum protection, the patch must be applied 2 hours before exposure. Don't Bite Me! is also waterproof, which means it's perfect for pool days and pool parties!
From now through August 31, 2009 (yes, all summer long!), Don't Bite Me! is offering a free bar of Bethesda Sunscreen Soap ($8.00 value) with the purchase of a 20-pack of patches. Coupon code: Treehugger. Don't Bite Me!
