Mosquito Protective Apparel for Women and Children

Maternova has launched a line of mosquito protective apparel for children and for women to provide a bio repellent textile capable of retaining efficacy for 80-100 washes or more. The textile repels mosquitoes carrying malaria and dengue as well as Chikungunya, Zika and EEE.

  • Safe bio repellent approved in the EU and embedded at the nano level in the textile
  • Repels mosquitoes for 80+ washes without losing efficacy

THE PROBLEM

The mosquito represents perhaps the greatest threat to human health, spreading malaria, yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, and other diseases. Malaria, which accounts for the majority of deaths among people infected with mosquito-borne diseases, infects an estimated 219 million people annually and results in 400,000 deaths, mostly among children under five years of age. Almost half of the world’s population is at risk of contracting malaria. For pregnant women, a malaria infection during pregnancy can lead to maternal anemia, spontaneous abortion, stillbirth, premature delivery, and low-birth weight - a leading cause of infant mortality. Infants who contract malaria are at an increased risk of rapid disease progression, severe anemia, severe malaria, and death. All mosquito-borne diseases are expanding, with new threats like Zika entering the equation. While bed nets protect people at night, there is not a good solution for people as they go about their daily routines in the dawn, day or dusk. Sprays are often seen as too expensive and the odor is offensive to many women.

THE SOLUTION

Maternova has launched a line of mosquito protective apparel that is embedded with a bio-repellent, effective for more than 80 washes and safe for pregnant women and for infants. The repellent is permethrin-free and the mechanism used is to repel the insects rather than to kill the insects. This mechanism means that no neurotoxin or other lethal ingredient is in the formula used in the textile and thus is much safer than other products on the market. Our top concern is that the textile protect pregnant mothers and infants from mosquito-borne disease, yet not expose them to harmful chemicals in the process. The bio repellent has been tested in the lab setting in Europe and in India and is effective against multiple species of mosquito and tick.  Maternova has worked with field partners in Uganda and El Salvador to determine user acceptability of Novaveil garments. Not only is our apparel effective, but it is stylish - clothing women will actually want to wear. The protective clothing is low-cost and can withstand 80+ washings without losing its repellent properties.

Currently, we offer an adjustable maternity dress, a scarf, and leggings as a part of our mosquito protective clothing collection as well as wholesale bolts of textile.
