Furthermore, we have chosen not to use certificates for a start, but we are constantly reviewing the statuses and considering which labels may benefit the consumer's understanding of the product. For example, in relation to the product's production and documentation of ingredients that are not known to cause allergy or other diseases.

How do I store my products?

It is easy to keep track of the patches in the purple-like packaging bag as it is both waterproof and can be opened and closed completely again. It is important that the bag with the patches is completely closed for optimal functioning of the patches.

With the re-close function in the bag, you do not risk the patches falling into the bag or drawer.

Why does a mosquito bite itch?

A mosquito (female mosquito) is attracted by the scents and heat of the body and sticks to suck blood. When the female mosquito stings, she sends some saliva (enzyme) into the skin. This causes the skin to become locally irritated and the body's immune system reacts by swelling and itching (a kind of allergic reaction). After a few days, the enzyme breaks down and the mosquito bite disappears, stopping the itching.

Why do some people get bigger reactions in the form of redness and swelling?

Humans respond differently to mosquito bites and other insect bites. Some get pronounced reactions (eg swelling and blistering) while others that sting the same type of insect get a minor or no reaction. It is believed that once the body has been exposed to many mosquito bites, antibodies are formed. When antibodies are formed, the body does not react allergically (by releasing histamine) in the same way. That probably explains why so many children react to mosquito bites allergic to adults.

How do I read the ingredient list on Elli's AFTER BITE products?

The declaration with all the ingredients is on the back of the product and is listed from a fixed system. The ingredient that fills the percentage in the product is mentioned first. The next ingredient on the list is the one that is second most and so on.

Are preservatives used in Elli's AFTER BITE?

Yes. Preservatives in personal care products that include water are necessary to ensure that bacteria and fungi do not grow, which can destroy the product and at worst infect the skin. We try to use the fewest possible preservatives with the least possible harmful effects. In addition to complying with current laws in the field, we keep an eye on news in scientific research and the ongoing assessments made by the preservatives.

What are bedbugs?

Bedbugs (Cimex Lectularius) are small parasites that feed on blood from humans and animals. Their bite creates irritation and risk of other infections through the constant itching they cause. Bedbugs are known to travel in luggage or clothing and stay inside the bedroom or hotel room. If you have bedbugs, you should boil all clothes and seek professional help to have them removed. Elli's After Bite products minimize itching, burning and skin irritation after bites from bedbugs. However, pay special attention to a doctor if you get red lines in the skin around the bidet or inflammation in the middle of the bidet.

It is important to emphasize that the crystallization does NOT have any damaging effect on the skin, and that is not mold or similar. However, the effectiveness of the patches can be lessened due to drying out.
