Vital Protection is a unique textile impregnation treatment that can offer long lasting protection against a host of biting insects including mosquitoes, midges, bed bugs, sand flies and fleas. Biting insects are not just an inconvenience, but they also pose a serious health risk. Not only will biting insects cause painful, itchy bites but also life-threatening diseases such as Malaria, Dengue Fever and West Nile Virus. Vital Protection is up to 90% effective in repelling blood feeding and bites, giving the user peace of mind that they can ‘Adventure Safely’. The range of applications for Vital Protection is unlimited as people travel to further and more exotic destinations and as the spread of diseases contracted from biting insects only increases.

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.
