ABOUT THE PRODUCT

RynoSkinDESIGN AND PROTECTION

RYNOSKIN was specifically designed to be worn underneath the clothing. This unique concept provides the wearer with comfort, breath-ability, stealth movement and eliminates snags against brushes. This armor will stretch to accommodate all different body sizes. Unlike all of the over garment type of insect protection suits that are hot, noisy and snag against the brush, RYNOSKIN is ultra-lightweight (9 oz) body-forming, cool, and comfortable. This body suit is so comfortable that the wearer will forget that he’s wearing it. RYNOSKIN has an impenetrable fabric and snug fitting elastic cuffs that provide complete protection from the following insects:

  • Sand Fleas
  • Flies (Biting Midges)
  • No-See-Ums
  • Black Files
  • Ticks
  • Chiggers
  • Ants & Gnats
  • Many Other Biting Insects

INTRODUCTION

Arthropod pests (mosquitoes, biting flies, ticks and chiggers) are a nuisance and a public health threat. For those in critical situations in work or recreation, the nuisance of a biting mosquito or crawling tick can prevent the achievement of peak performance. Furthermore, exposure to these pests is a threat to health through the transmission of disease. In addition to carrying infectious diseases, these biting pests can also cause severe allergic reactions due to a toxin found in their saliva. Historically, preventing exposure to these disease vectors has been the most effective method of limiting disease transmission and preventing annoying bites.

Chemical barriers can be effective at preventing exposure to biting arthropods, but require reapplication and involve strong chemicals that some people may not tolerate.

Rynoskin Chemical Free Protection without harsh side effects.

An independent observer and researcher were used to record observations, serve as a time keeper and assist as needed during the experiment. After the insertion of an arm into each containment unit, the independent observer verified Ceratopogonidae: Culicoides sonorenisis exhibited feeding behavior. Active feeding or food-seeking behavior included activity whereby individual Ceratopogonidae: Culicoides sonorenisis were searching of entrance through the clothing to reach the skin to feed.

Data analysis include descriptive statistics and Kruskal-Wallis non-parametric statistical test. No bites were received while wearing Rynoskin, underneath the clothing.

Disclaimer when worn properly partial protection against mosquitoes.
