Permethrin Treated Shirts
The impregnation treatment given to insect repellent shirts remains effective even after washing and lasts for the lifetime of the material – there is no need to re-treat a shirt. For example, permethrin pesticide used in Exofficio Bugsaway insect repellent shirts is bound to the fabric and lasts for at least 70 washes.
Permethrin is the man-made equivalent of a natural insect repellent found in some types of chrysanthemum plants.
Insect repellent shirts are designed with travel and outdoor adventures in mind. Not only do they protect against mosquito bites, they often incorporate sun protection and moisture control technology to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, and keep you cool even in hot conditions.
