Don’t Bite Me Patch
Vitamin B1 Impregnated Anti-mosquito Patch
Don’t Bite Me Patch Ingredients:
Vitamin B1 is the key ingredient in the Don’t Bite Me! Patch. When Vitamin B1 metabolizes in the body it reduces human odors attractive to insects. The thiamine (Vitamin B1) based formula is absorbed into the bloodstream through our topical patch and excess Vitamin B1 is then excreted through the body’s pores. This makes a slight odor that is almost undetectable to humans, but that insects don’t like. This slight “odor” forms a protective barrier around the body that makes you unattractive to insects.
Vitamin B1 is also 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 medicinal and therapeutic purposes for thousands of years. Aloe Vera contains anti-inflammatory 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 topical delivery or our ingredients is what makes the patch so effective. Topical medical delivery and release systems have been on the market since 1982. After more than 20 yeas of extensive development, most major pharmaceutical companies now market topical systems for dispensing a great variety of pharmaceutical agents. The topical 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.

How To Apply the Don’t Bite Me! Patch
A transdermal patch is an adhesive pad that is placed on the skin to deliver a time-released dose of active ingredients through the skin into the bloodstream. It is also called a skin patch. Skin patches are an alternative way for the body to absorb ingredients and/or medicines.
What is the Don’t Bite Me! Patch?
Don’t Bite Me! Patch is an all-natural insect repellent. Don’t Bite Me! Patch is a transdermal skin patch containing the active ingredients, Vitamin B1, (Thiamine Hydrochloride) 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. Don’t Bite Me! Patch should be used to repel biting insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, gnats, sand fleas and no-seeums. Apply the patch TWO hours prior to being exposed to biting insects. Each Don’t Bite Me! Patch is for single use only.
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.
To prevent skin irritation, use a different site for each application. The most common side effect of the patch is a localized skin rash. The rash generally occurs due to a reaction to the adhesive on the patch. Use of a topical salve (such as an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream) can usually relieve the discomfort.
Don’t Bite Me! Patch is also waterproof. Contact with water, when you are bathing, swimming, or showering, should not affect the integrity of the patch.
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.
- adhesive formulation
- polyester release liner
- Skin Surface
Each patch is individually sealed in a protective pouch. There are two ways to open the pouch:
- The tear notch on the side of the pouch.
- The peel edge along one side of the pouch.
Carefully open the pouch to expose the patch. Use your fingers rather than scissors to avoid damaging the patch.
STEP 1: The patch should be applied to clean, dry and hair-free skin on one of the recommended sites: on the hip, the buttocks, upper back and upper arm. Do not apply the patch to broken or irritated skin. Do not use moisturizers, creams or powder on the skin before applying the patch, as this may prevent the patch from adhering properly.
Don’t Bite Me! Patch has a liner similar to a Band-Aid.
STEP 2: Peel off the liner and press that side of the patch against your skin.
STEP 3: Press firmly to make sure all the edges are secure. The vitamin B1 and aloe vera are absorbed into the bloodstream, and carried throughout the body, providing a protective barrier against biting insects. The B1 creates an odour (undetectable to humans), which camouflages the odor of the carbon dioxide that we naturally emit through our pores. (The carbon dioxide emission is what attracts mosquitoes and other biting insects.)
To remove the patch, peel off one corner at a time and pull the patch smoothly away from the skin. The patch may leave a slight discoloration on some skin types, which will fade naturally in a few days.
