Natural Patches Insect Repellent Patch contains 75mg of Thiamine, a natural vitamin, this works with the bodies' own chemistry to create an invisible barrier that shields from biting insects. Thiamine is very hard to obtain through a balanced diet as the cooking process destroys most of the vitamin. The body typically needs less than 2mg of Thiamine per day for a healthy diet; excess Thiamine is passed through the urine, breath and skin, the latter being important. 75mg is much more Thiamine than the body requires and so it is expelled through the skin. Biting insects and in particular Mosquitoes dislike the smell of Thiamine to the extent that they will choose an alternative source of food, leaving the wearer of the patch bite free.
