Dengue! Malaria! Yellow Fever! Encephalitis! These are some known diseases those ugly, pesky mosquitoes transmit. Though they can be treated, some may be fatal.
Good News Mommies! We can do something to protect our little babies!
DEET or N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide is a chemical in insect repellents originally used by the U.S. Army in jungle warfares to repel insects inhabiting the forests. That sounds tough! But you might not want to use DEET products on your baby’s sensitive skin. Though DEET is generally safe when used as indicated, it is still a poison on your baby’s sensitive skin that can cause mild irritations or redness.
Instead, Cycles® Sensitive Non-DEET Insect Repellent uses Picaridin, a synthetic compound based on Piper or Pepper that is proved to be odorless, as effective, and less irritating to the skin than DEET.
Cycles® Sensitive Non-DEET Insect Repellent provides up to 8 hours protection against insects, and is paraben-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and available for babies from ages birth up. Available in Makati Supermarket, Alabang at PHP254, 100mL for babies 6 months up. That’s way cheaper than hospital bills. I’m sure this one’s in other leading Supermarkets too.
