The Breakthrough Discovery
Total Outdoor Protection
DirtBugSun™ is the breakthrough mosquito repellant for kids’ total outdoor protection. With active ingredient IR3535, it effectively drives away dengue-causing mosquitoes and other bugs. It also add another layer of protection as it shields the skin from germs/bacteria, and skin-damaging rays from the sun. To top it all, DirtBugSun’s™ hypoallergenic and DEET-free formula is clinically proven to be safe, mild, and effective for everyday use.
DirtBugSun™ provides kids with long-lasting protection from outdoor risks like insects, germs, and harsh sunlight.
DirtBugSun™ drives away mosquitoes with its active ingredient IR3535, shields the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, and protects it against disease-causing germs and bacteria.
It is also deet-free and has a gentle formulation that has passed several toxicity tests.
DirtBugSun™ is a non-sticking lotion that uses 1R3535 instead of DEET. Unlike other insect repellents that only mask the host's odor, IR3535® works by making the host appalling to mosquitoes. As a result, mosquitos generally avoid places with traces of IR3535®.
If you're using a moisturizing lotion along with an insect repellent, apply the lotion first and let it dry before applying the repellent. This will keep the repellent from rubbing off or being diluted by the lotion.
It's also a good idea to avoid layering other products, such as perfumes and scented lotions, on top of insect repellent, as these can reduce its effectiveness.
Mosquitoes do not like the scent of IR3535® at all! Mosquitoes use their sense of smell to navigate the world, so once they encounter a potential host with traces of IR3535®, they actively avoid them.
When mosquitoes encounter the scent of human odor mixed with IR3535®, they dislike it so much that they avoid sources of it. On the other hand, repellents like DEET and Picaridin merely cause confusion and interfere with mosquitoes’ receptors so they fail to smell and recognize potential human hosts.
Natural insect repellents like citronella and oil of lemon eucalyptus just “mask” the scent of potential human hosts and repel them. Plus, these repellents also evaporate quickly.
DirtBugSun™ Total Protection Anti-Mosquito Lotion contains a synthetic repellent called IR3535® that isn’t as volatile, offers added protection against mosquitoes, and can last longer on the skin. Because of this, you don’t need to reapply this lotion often.
