What is the Don’t Bite Me! Patch?
The Don’t Bite Me! Patch is all natural. Don’t Bite Me! Patch is a transdermal skin patch containing Vitamin B1 and Aloe Vera. These ingredients are contained within a pressure-sensitive, latex-free acrylic adhesive, and when applied to a dry, hairless part of the body, are absorbed into the blood stream.

- The Don’t Bite Me! Patch is effective for up to 36 hours.
- Smoking, alcoholic beverages, heavy insect infestation or a body weight of over 200 pounds may require the application of a second patch.
The Don’t Bite Me! Patch is comprised of three layers. Proceeding from the visible surface toward the surface attached to the skin:
- An adhesive formulation containing Vitamin B1 and aloe vera,
- A polyester release liner attached to the adhesive surface, which must be removed before properly gaining the benefits of the patch.
Vitamin B1 is the key ingredient in our "Don't Bite Me! Patch."
The thiamine (Vitamin B1) based formula is absorbed into the bloodstream through our transdermal "Don't Bite Me! Patch" transdermal patch. Excess Vitamin B1 is then excreted through the body's pores, making a slight odour that is almost undetectable to humans, but that mosquitoes don't like. This slight "odour" forms a protective barrier around the body.
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 the secondary ingredient in our "Don't Bite Me! Patch." The uses for Aloe Vera have been revered for a wide variety of therapeutic purposes for thousands of years. Aloe Vera soothing properties which may explain why it has been reported to alleviate pain and swelling associated with itches and burns. Because Aloe Vera is not considered an essential nutrient, there is no RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) set. It is a very safe plant with no known toxicity.
The transdermal delivery is what makes the patch so effective.
Transdermal delivery and release systems have been on the market since 1982. After more than 20 years of extensive development, most major pharmaceutical companies now market transdermal systems for dispensing a great variety of pharmaceutical agents. The transdermal delivery and release system provides a highly efficient, safe and easy to use method for delivering active ingredients and other compounds to the body through intact skin, thereby offering many advantages over the traditional dosage forms.
