How does it work?

Vital Protection’s active ingredient is permethrin – a totally safe, but highly effective chemistry. Within nature, certain flowers, such as those of the chrysanthemum are used to make a repellent with almost identical properties.

Permethrin is a synthetic version of this naturally occurring organic protection. It is odourless and with correct practice has no negative effective on the environment or garment/equipment to which it is applied.

This unique chemistry, which we have successfully developed to be incorporated into fabrics, immediately repels insects as their nervous system detects a threat. In most cases when mosquitoes and other biting insects sense this repellent, they are immediately deterred and fly off to find a tastier victim! Vital Protection thus safeguards the wearer from nasty bites and potential disease.
