INSECT SHIELD® UV Buff®
The Insect Shield® UV Buff® is infused with an odorless insect repellent that's effective against most biting insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. The EPA requires extensive effectiveness data to prove a product's ability to repel insects, and Insect Shield® has passed all EPA testing levels. Many species and varieties of these insects have been tested, including those that can carry dangerous diseases. This technology will last through 70 washings, and is EPA registered to perform to that level. The result...effective, odorless insect protection that lasts the expected lifetime of our newest Buff® product.
The Insect Shield® UV Buff® also has Polygiene®, an anti bacterial, anti odor technology. Polygiene® technology, based on natural silver salts and recycled silver, is incorporated into the fabric, not just the individual fibers or panels. Polygiene® protects against odor and degradation from odor causing bacteria,thus ensuring freshness and comfort no matter how hot the conditions may be. Silver has a natural ability to prevent the growth of bacteria and has been known as an antibacterial for thousands of years. Preventing bacteria growth means you'll also prevent body odors from being produced by sweat. Polygiene® qualifies for the OEKO-TEX standard 100 and has undergone dermatological testing. It will not cause skin irritation, and the active ingredient has been proven to stay in the fabric, no matter how many times you may wash your garment.
Throw in the 95% Ultra Violet protection that all UV Buff®s provide, and you should feel you're protected out in the wild, or your back yard, when you are wearing Buff® Headwear with Insect Shield® repellent technology.
The Insect Shield® UV Buff® can be worn as a neckerchief, headband, wristband, mask, hairband, balaclava, scarf, hair scrunchy, saharine, pirate cap, beanie and bandana. Maybe you can create a new use of your own? If you do, please let us know!
