BODY CARE / NANOICARIDINA
REPELLENT WITH LESS ACTIVE AND MORE EFFICACY
Repellents are indispensable for disease prevention, but in high doses they can cause unexpected health problems.
The repellents with icaridin available on the market use high doses, between 22 to 25% of the active in free form, with protection from 6 to 8 hours. The encapsulated active uses only 5.5% of icaridin protecting for the same period. The great advantage provided by technology is the high dose reduction with greater efficiency.
Nanovetores has developed a system that encapsulates icaridin, a highly safe repellent based on pepper extract. Through nanotechnology, we have reduced the dose by 4.5x, guaranteeing a prolonged release and superior efficiency when compared to others icaridin repellents. The formula of Nanoicaridina does not contain alcohol, it is not oily and can be used from 6 months of age, it provides greater comfort, safety and well-being for the user. According to the WHO, icaridin is the only repellent indicated for pregnant women and children.
1. What is the protection period offered by NanoIcaridina?
Only 5.5% of NanoIcaridina promotes repellent action against insects for a period of up to 8 hours, while Icaridin in free form needs 25% of concentration to provide repellency for the same period of time.
4. Why using the active icaridin?
Icaridin is the active ingredient for repellents most recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), due to its protection time, mechanism of action, safety for children and pregnant women, and with nanotechnology all its benefits are enhanced.
2. NanoIcaridina can be used by anyone?
Yes! Because it is a low-dose (but highly effective) active and because it is protected in nanoparticles, it has not shown any adverse reactions in clinical studies, and can be used by babies from 6 months, adults and pregnant women.
5. How to know if it is effective and safe?
Tests and studies were carried out in an accredited laboratory and their repellency was 100% proven. During the study period, the product also did not induce significant or persistent adverse clinical reactions in any volunteer, being considered safe.
3. What is the differential of this active?
With only ¼ of the conventional dosage used in repellent products, NanoIcaridina provides greater efficacy and repellency when compared to the free active, and can be up to 2x more effective than the repellents available on the market and protecting for a longer period. In addition, it protects against Aedes aegypti (transmitter of the virus that causes Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya).
6. What is Green Chemistry? Why using it?
The production processes based on the concepts of Green Chemistry are more sustainable, are water based and do not use organic solvents. In addition, the nanoparticles used by Nanovetores are biocompatible and biodegradable, reflecting our commitment to the environment and the well-being of people.
