How to protect children from insect bites and stings
It is just as important to protect your child’s skin from stings and bites as it is to protect them from the sun, as insects can spread diseases and cause allergic reactions. There are lots of easy steps you can take to keep your child safe from insects including:
- Covering all exposed skin with sleeves or trousers
- Wearing shoes when outdoors
- Apply insect repellent to any areas that are exposed or placing an insect repellent band on their wrist
- Teach your child to stay away from insect nests and to remain calm and still if they encounter, wasps, hornets or bees
- Avoid camping near water, such as ponds and swamps, as mosquitoes and horseflies are commonly found near water
- Keep food and drink covered when eating or drinking outside
- Keep doors and windows closed or put thin netting over them to prevent insects entering the house
How can the Jungle Formula Insect Repellent Bracelet repel insects?
Insect bites and stings can be distressing for little one’s and applying traditional spray insect repellent can be a bit tricky if they can’t keep still or don’t like the smell. The Jungle Formula insect repellent band simply locks onto the wrist with a simple snapping action so it cannot be removed by the child and is waterproof, so they can have fun in the pool or the sea without worrying about insect bites. The band is scientifically proven to provide protection from mosquitoes and biting insects without the active ingredient having direct contact with the skin. The band uses the active ingredient, Geraniol which is a natural insect repellent. Each band provides 2 weeks of protection when used 8 hours a day and is suitable for children aged 3 and over.
How to use this product?
Insert the strip into the base at both ends of the bracelet. Slide the rings over the bracelet, one at a time. Gently slap the bracelet onto your child’s wrist so it attaches itself and locks. The band will adjust automatically to your child’s wrist size, so it is tight without the need of adjustment, but not too tight that it causes discomfort. Store the bracelet in the aluminium foil bag that is provided with this product and seal tightly after using the bracelet or when the bracelet is not being worn. Use in conjunction with Jungle Formula Kid’s lotion for an extra degree of protection.
When NOT to use Jungle Formula Bracelet?
This product is NOT suitable for children under the age of 3. Do NOT use this product if your child is allergic to Geraniol. If discomfort, irritation or allergic reaction occurs as a result of using this product, discontinue use.
