Buy Mosquitoes Body Spray Online
Mosquito don’t just drive you insane by whining in your ear they also spread disease. So we need to use mosquito repellent to save ourselves and our skin from them. Mosquito repellent is a substance that is used to keep mosquitoes away. Mosquito repellent is different from insecticide as they don’t kill insects as insecticide does; instead they just keep the pest (Mosquito) away from you and don’t let them bite you. These products are available as a lotion, oil, cream, sticks, and also as pump-spray which are directly applied to your skin.
Do They Work?
Various substances are used to get rid of mosquitoes. Especially when it comes to Mosquito, Citronella oil is proved as very effective and has been used for years. Even it was the first truly effective mosquito repellent and has been used for medical purposes.
There is one more substance is known as DEET (N, N-diethyl-3-methybenzamide, formerly known as N, N-diethyl-3-m-toluamide) is very effective as a mosquito repellent. DEET is the only active ingredient which is also very effective to fight insect that carries diseases, like malaria.
How it Works?
Every person the body works differently and some people attract insects more than others. Mosquito are attracted to CO2 and when we breathe we release CO2 and CO2 also ooze from our skin. And mosquito comes to us by sensing the CO2 we release and also sensing the warmth and humidity of our body.
When you apply any kind of mosquito repellent on your skin the active ingredient present in them such as DEET vaporize and create a layer around your skin which not let mosquito sense you and prevent you from their bites.
Essential Oil as Mosquito Repellent
There are many repellents that include the chemical substance like dimethylpethalate, but there are also repellent available that uses plant-based oil also called as essential oil like citronella oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil and lemongrass oil. I prefer to use plant-based repellent as they are natural to use and don’t have any kind of side effect that will harm in any way.
What Works More?
As already discussed above mosquito repellent comes in many different ways such as lotion, spray, cream, and oil.
When it comes to lotion and cream these are essentially cream with a certain level of DEET. And consist of skin softeners (emollients), fatty alcohol, fragrance, surfactants (substances that keep the liquid ingredients spread out), and mainly water. This substance acts as a moisturizer and a repellent, however, they are not as effective as sprays or pumps because the active ingredients can’t evaporate easily.
