Citriodiol (Oil of lemon Eucalyptus)

Citriodiol® is nature's most effective insect repellent. It is a naturally sourced active ingredient that is effective against a range of biting insects, nuisance insects and ticks. It is derived from the oil of the Eucalyptus citriodora tree (also known as Corymbia citriodora), which is a natural and renewable resource grown in several parts of the world.

Citriodiol® is produced from steam distilled Eucalyptus citriodora oil using a process that mimics and accelerates the ageing process which naturally occurs in the leaf, by converting the citronellal content into p-menthane-3,8-diol (PMD). PMD itself is usually only present at very low levels in natural essential oils, rarely more than 1% or 2 %
This conversion process to increase the PMD content makes Citriodiol® a far more powerful repellent than the natural essential oil itself.

PMD has long been known as the active compound responsible for the repellent effect, and it is the high levels of PMD in Citriodiol® which provide its efficacy. Citriodiol® contains a minimum of 64% PMD (a mixture of the cis and trans isomers of p-menthane-3,8-diol) together with a number of minor constituents found in essential oil which enhance the efficacy further.

Citriodiol® has been notified under the European Biocidal Products Directive (BPD) 98/8/EC and is in the final stages of evaluation under the European Union’s Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR)

Unlike other essential oil based products, Citriodiol® has passed the most rigorous safety and efficacy tests. For example, it has met the highest standards obtaining unconditional registration from the following agencies:

United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA)
Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA)
Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA)
Swedish Chemicals Agency (KEMI)
Dutch Board for the Authorisation of Plant Protection Products and Biocides (Ctgb)

At BiteMosquito we use Citriodiol for children's t-shirts.
The substance is wrapped in microcapsules, so it remains isolated in its interior and gives off a slight aroma that camouflages the child in front of all types of vectors without needing to have direct contact with the substance.

Microencapsulation is the process of coating molecules, solid particles or liquid globules, with materials of different nature, to give rise to particles of micrometric size. Microcapsules are polymers that are harmless to humans, so they do not irritate or damage the skin, and the active substance is released by rubbing, providing continuous protection to the smaller ones. The microcapsules are adhered to the tissue through a resin.

Permethrin

BiteMosquito uses Permethrin for adult t-shirts.
It is a product based on permethrin 40%, which thanks to advances in science and nanotechnology is fixed to the textile.
The products used are approved by the European Union and comply with all safety regulations.

Permetrine belongs to the family of compounds called pyrethroids whose mechanism of action is neurotoxicity by prolonging the activation of sodium channels causing sustained depolarization of the Insect.

What does this Mean?

That any insect or mosquito that approaches, will be automatically disoriented and stunned, losing all ability to bite.

The use of Permethrin as a repellent is very common, and WHO itself recommends it, because its high repellency and being one of the effective repellents with prolonged action against the specially feared tiger mosquito and aedes aegypti, causing diseases like Zika, yellow fever, dengue or chikunguya among others.

The products with permethrin that we use are homologated by the European Union and comply with all the safety regulations.

Textiles treated with this substance have been exposed to numerous toxicity tests to verify that they are not harmful to health, even counting with the OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certification that guarantees that they do not contain harmful substances.

In addition, after having been analyzed by Tanatex Chemicals BV © a resistance to more than 50 actual washes has been obtained if the instructions for the same are followed as it is the garment with more quantity of substance mg / m2 of the market without exceeding in no case the limits established for garments of civil use.

Resistance to Washing... Utopia or Reality?

  1. Currently, similar products are marketed to our shirts with permethrin that promise a resistance of 100 washes using other types of treatments in its elaboration, so we must ask if it is possible to achieve such resistance without exceeding the maximum amount of legally established substance for garments destined to the Civilian use, or if it really is a utopia.

    BiteMosquito was born due to the real need for protection of vectors, which every day is spread worldwide, so before embarking on this project we have done a thorough field study, both the current situation of vectors and the Products that are marketed.
    Thanks to this, and with the results obtained, we are in the moral obligation to say that today there is no repellent textile garment that complies with the maximum of 100 washes, nor that the vectors are kept more than 2 meters away of whoever takes it. (This is an Utopia).

    Deepening a bit more the resistance to washing, this is achieved through the combination between the amount of substance applied to the fabric and the fixing process, which makes the results can vary to the amount of substance mg / m2 In which the repellency effect is considered to be no longer effective (this is 200 mg / m2).<

    The amount of substance per mg / m2 applied to the textile with nanotechnology must be within legally established limits for civil use, which in this case may not exceed 2000 mg / m2 (maximum), nor be less than 200 mg / m2 ( Minimum), since with this last amount the effect of repellency is lost.

    After analyzing the existing products and the studies carried out on our garments made with nanotechnology, the results we obtained in terms of amount of substance and resistance in washes are the following:
    Product mg/m2-initial Number of washes mg/m2-final
    BiteMosquito 1390 50 200
    More visible competition 320 5 200
    Analysis carried out by Tanatex Chemicals BV.© Holand
    That is why we can affirm that our garments are the most quantity of substance mg / m2 have on the market, this provides us with a product with an acceptable resistance for your protection of more than 50 actual washes, as long as you follow the instructions for your Greater durability, with a fabric made of 100% cotton, a more resistant fabric, more friendly with the environment and with greater durability.

    Our commitment to your protection makes us grow, fight and keep investigating every day, to improve our products and offer something real, leaving aside the utopias and marketing campaigns, because our goal is none other than to put at your disposition an effective protection.
