Why it’s important to protect yourself and your loved ones

In the not-so-distant past, being bitten by a mosquito meant nothing more than a red spot on the cheek. There was an irritating itch for a while, but it had no lasting impact on a memorable trip to the countryside, a camping expedition, or an enjoyable afternoon at the lake. That’s how things used to be.

But the world has changed now. It’s shrinking as people develop more of a passion for travel, exotic vacations, and exploration. People also now have a wider choice of recreational activities. But this new-found freedom entails certain risks. Going to watch the Carnival in Rio? Zika is not far away. Exploring the wilderness of Africa? Malaria may spoil the fun. Visiting the Taj Mahal? Beware of dengue fever!

GENTLENESS FOR EVERYBODY

Safety first – for me and my baby

You’ve probably read a lot about Zika infections and the risks to babies. Are you pregnant and looking for the strongest mosquito protection possible – something that won’t harm your baby? Or are you searching for a product that won’t harm the sensitive skin of your baby with aggressive chemicals? Good news: IR3535® is highly effective and not harmful to the skin.

Effective and gentle protection for kids

Do you spend a lot of time outdoors with your kids in the summer? There could be lots of mosquitoes and ticks out there! What you need is effective bug protection – but something that won’t irritate children’s skin. Maybe a medical expert has advised you to avoid products that are unsuitable for children? IR3535® is a perfect insect repellent in such cases, because it’s not only tough on insects, it’s also gentle on the skin.

Ticks? Zero tolerance.

Kids love playing outside on the weekend and on vacation. But in some areas, when you see them running around in a field, you can’t stop thinking about the ticks that might be lurking in the grass, putting them in danger of infection with harmful conditions such as Lyme disease. How can we possibly shield our children from all these tiny monsters? The answer is provided by a helpful friend: IR3535®. It’s tough ticks, but gentle on the scalp and skin.

Effective and environmentally compatible protection

Do you love exploring nature or generally spend a lot of time outdoors (for work or during your free time)? Are you not willing to take risks when it comes to mosquitoes and ticks, but also worried about harming Mother Nature? Bug sprays containing IR3535® are the perfect solution. They go tough on insects, but they don’t actually harm them. At the same time, they go gentle on you and the environment.

A welcome guardian against the Zika virus and chikungunya

Do you like to travel a lot? Are you interested in learning about different cultures, but worried about the things you read about West Nile infections, the chikungunya virus, or the Zika virus? Just one infection could be enough to pose a serious health risk. So you probably want an effective insect repellent, but preferably one that doesn’t have a strong smell or cause itchy or dry skin. Help is at hand. IR3535® bug sprays provide long-term protection, yet are gentle on the body and keep skin feeling soft.

No problem for the environment

IR3535® is a derivative of β-alanine, a naturally occurring amino acid. It was given U classification by the WHO and has the best toxicological and eco-toxicological profile in its category for all approved biocides. IR3535® does not harm or damage aquatic organisms or persist in nature. Also, it does not actually kill insects – it merely drives them away.
