All of us have had to deal with problems of insects coming at us when we were out on a hiking, camping trip. This issue can be a big problem for individuals who are not used to such conditions and can therefore ruin the mood of the entire trip.
In such cases it is highly beneficial to consider ‘repellent clothing’. As the name suggests, these clothes come packed with natural compounds that help keep away insects such as mosquitoes, ants and other crawlies away from us.
Also, many of us might think that such clothing can cause harm to our skin, but the truth of the matter is that substances used to repel insects have been tested and found to be absolutely compatible with our bodies.
About Net Effect Clothing
According to information available online, Net Effect Clothing is a ‘clothing company’ that aims to provide customers with comfortable, casual insect repellent garments that allow us to roam around freely in nature.
All of the featured apparel comes loaded with an advanced technology called Insect Shield. This system has been designed to allow for advanced insect repelling without any issues of odour, irritation etc. The manufacturer has stressed on the fact that the active ingredients are bonded to the fabric fibers so that they stay in our clothes, and not stick to our skin.
The company was started when the founder read Will MacAskill's book Doing Good Better and was thus inspired to help societies in need. The website states that Net Effect plans to ”contribute $5 (per sale) to organizations that provide anti-malarial bed nets to people in need.”
From a cost perspective we can see that bed nets are extremely cheap, and can be used to prevent malaria for a cost as little as $2.50 per net.
What is Insect Shield?
Insect Shield is a patented process that has been shown to bind a repellant agent called “permethrin” into the fabric of our clothing. What make this technology unique is the fact that it helps the active compounds penetrate deeply into the clothing itself, without interfering with with our skin.
Some of the key benefits of Net Effect Clothing using Insect Shield include:

(iii) Long Life:
Studies conducted on garments using this technology have shown that its effects can last for the entire lifetime of the apparel.
(iv) Completely Safe:
While not well known, Permethrin has been clinically tested and even been cleared in the United States by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Interested readers will be surprised to know that Insect Shield based clothing has been distributed in the US since 1977.

While recently introduced into clothing, the core active complex in the mix has been historically used in various lice shampoos for children, flea dips for dogs, and various other products.
