THE MISSION OF ELLI’S AFTER BITE IS SIMPLE:

“To offer children and parents effective and functional products based on natural plants, which relieves itching every time. Essentially to ensure that children play outside and focus on having fun and loving life.”

The story of Elli's AFTERBITE

THE MOTIVATION TO CREATE ELLI’S AFTER BITE STARTED IN 2014...

.. when we realized that our 1 year old daughter – Ellinor – time and time again was bit by mosquitos. Often the bites were very swollen and caused great discomfort.

 

During a vacation in 2016 with the usual struggles of overcoming mosquito bites, crying, sleepless nights and significant amount of anti-histamine, we kick-started the pursuit of a patch with itch relieving properties. First and foremost, we needed a product that provided itch relief, without use of medication. At the same time we needed to exclude external bacteria to ensure a speedy recovery. Realizing this, we were onto something.

 

It was a French professor who eventually introduced us to the plant Great Plantain (Lat. Plantago Major). The plant has been known for centuries due to it’s healing and itch-relieving properties. Why should we reinvent a product from scratch, when nature had already created a fantastic solution?

 

During the summer of 2017, the same professor supported us harvesting and extracting the Great Plantain into a liquid. The product was tested on our daughter and other people being challenged with mosquito bites. The verdict and feedback was consistent, the itching was relieved immediately.

HAVING AN EFFECTIVE PLANT EXTRACT THAT WORKED…

… we had basically accomplished the first part. We had a natural and effective plant extract and were only lacking the patch solution. Within the world of functional and advanced patches, there was not a lot of companies capable of manufacturing a product that could contain and hold a liquid extract. We finally identified a Chinese manufacturer and after a good year of prototyping, we finally came to the right solution.

 

We are now in the summer of 2020. Ellinor is still challenges with mosquito bites – both due to itching, swelling and general discomfort. The difference is that we now have a solution for her in the shape of a natural plant extract contained in a functional patch. 

 

In addition to the patch, we have launched a Gel and a Spray product. Both products are as effective if mosquito bites or insect bites cause irritation or itching. The Gel and Spray can be used on children from 0+ years as well as on adults. The products are convenient and especially handy if you have had many mosquito bites or not able to wear a patch. 

 

We hope that Elli’s AFTER BITE can be as helpful to you as it has been to us, if you are challenged with insect bites.It is our sincere hope, that Elli’s AFTER BITE can help you or your child– if you are challenged with mosquitos or other insect bites!

Natural ingredients

ELLI’S AFTER BITE IS EQUAL TO NATURAL ACTIVE INGRIDIENTS WITH DOCUMENTED EFFECT

We have developed all of our products based on a single plant – Great Plantain (lat. Plantago Major). Additionally we have limited preservation ingredients to a minimum.

 

Given the natural plant material as well as the water in the products, there is a risk of bacterial growth. We have therefore had to add preservation to inhibit bacteria and fungus which could in the worst case result in skin infections.

 

The Great Plantain (lat. Plantago Major) plant is available in nature and ideally picked by hand and applied directly. When picking the product and squeezing the plant, the liquid from the leaves of the plant can be applied directly onto the bite. This is however, somewhat time consuming and additionally there is a risk of contamination depending on where the products is growing. It is therefore recommended to use plants that grow in places isolated from possible contamination sources.

Great Plantain (lat. Plantago major)

PLANTAGO MAJOR – KNOWN UNDER MANY NAMES

Great Plantain can be found in many places all of the world. The plant is also known under the name ’White Man’s Foot’.

 

The Indians named the plant White Man’s Foot, as it basically grew in the footsteps of the European settlements. The plant is also known under the name ‘Greater Plantain’, ‘Common Plantain’, ‘Wegbrade’, ‘Waybread’, ‘Engliahman’s Food’, ‘Fleaworth’ and ‘Groblad’.

Great plantain has been found in Denmark and in numerous European countries for centuries. The healing properties for treating wounds and bites have been known by our ancestors and can be dated all the way back to the 14th century.

 

Great Plantain is considered to be one of the plants which is “safe” and free from side effects at the same time as being very effective.
