Soy Genius Kids Develops Amazing Line Of Insect Repellant & Sun Protecting Clothing For Children
Soy Genius Kids is well…genius! They recently teamed up with Insect Shield to develop the first and only line of apparel for infants and toddlers which is insect-repellent.
The Buggies Collection is made from Soy Genius exclusive fabric blend of organic cotton and soy fibre that is both adorable and stylish, durable and naturally wicking. Not only does the fabric provide a UPF 30+ rating, it is also antimicrobial and features the innovative Insect Shield® Repellent Technology, providing protection from a variety of bugs – including those that can carry West Nile virus, Lyme disease, malaria and other insect-borne diseases.
The active ingredient in this odorless protection is permethrin, a man-made version of a natural insect repellent with repels mosquitos, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges/no-see-ums. Permethrin is found in certain chrysanthemums plants, such as the African daisy. It has been used successfully in the United States since 1977, with an excellent safety record.

Products can be worn by infants, children of all ages, and women who are pregnant or nursing. Wearing Insect Shield apparel reduces the need for topical repellents. ”
