* Combined with the separately sold BUG OFF leg cover, the insect repellent and UV effect will be further improved.
You can easily repel insects just by wearing it, it is tasteless, odorless, safe and secure (registered by the international organization Ecotex®), and has high washing resistance and continuous effect (the insect repellent component does not easily come off due to the special coating).
Before weaving the fabric, a special process is applied at the thread stage to keep insects away from the fibers, and the insect repellent effect is exhibited just by wearing it. By adding cool, UV, dry, and moisture absorption processing, it is a material that can prevent unpleasant insect bites in summer and prevent extreme heat at once.
Insects perched on the surface of the fabric detect the insect repellent component with the antennae and the sensory organs at the tip of the foot, and have the function of escaping immediately, so it is effective against mosquitoes and ticks (* to the fabric) It depends on the contact time, but it does not work for large objects such as bees and bugs.)
The back side is processed with xylitol print, which also has a cooling effect that lowers the sensible temperature in response to sweat.
The insect repellent used reproduces the natural ingredients of the Asteraceae family and is safe with little effect on the human body. We use highly safe and designated chemicals certified by the international organization Ecotex.
(* Ecotex® considers the burden on people and the environment involved in production, including certification of the world's highest level of safe products targeting more than 350 types of harmful substances, which far exceeds Japanese safety standards. It is a proof of safety that is world-class, such as certification of sustainable factories.)
Semi-permanent sustainability is achieved by directly kneading an insect repellent agent into the thread instead of processing it into the fabric. (Washing durability is recognized to be more than 90% effective after washing 70 times or more.)
