This Game-Changing Product Gives Kids Total Outdoor Protection!

When it comes to keeping kids safe from dengue, germs, and the harsh rays of the sun, DirtBugSun provides total outdoor protection.

It’s a known fact, especially among parents who experienced lockdowns with their children during the pandemic, that kids learn more when they’re outdoors. Child experts state that outdoor learning helps foster their development in creativity, problem-solving, independence, and confidence. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), being outdoors often enables children to try different games and practice skills. This helps them meet milestones in learning, language, and emotions. They can also use their curious minds to explore their environment instead of being restricted to the four walls of a home or classroom. However, as parents, we constantly ask ourselves if what we’re doing to protect our kids is enough to secure their well-being. After all, there are many risks when it comes to playing outdoors. These include getting bitten by dengue mosquitoes or overexposure to the harsh rays of the sun.

In fact, dengue fever is currently in full swing. The risk of transmission is highest during and immediately following the rainy season, which typically occurs between May to November. Data from the Department of Health (DOH)’s Disease Surveillance Report showed that there were 220,705 dengue cases recorded from January 1 to December 17, 2022.

How can parents keep their children safe and provide total outdoor protection?

Naturally, parents want to prioritize the health and safety of their children. Moms, in particular, are looking for the best possible product that can protect their children outdoors. Fortunately, there’s a new breakthrough product in the market that provides total outdoor protection for kids — DirtBugSun! It’s a game-changing mosquito repellent, perfect for your kids’ outdoor playtime.

Unlike other mosquito repellent brands, DirtBugSun offers a safer non-DEET formulation that is clinically proven to provide effective protection for up to 4.5 hours against mosquito bites — making it gentle and safe for kids’ everyday use. DEET — short for the chemical name N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide — is an active ingredient used in many repellent products. Although it is not harmful, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are some cases where DEET products can cause skin and eye irritation. Especially among babies and children with sensitive skin. Despite this, DEET is found in most commercial mosquito repellent.

What other benefits does DirtBugSun offer?

Apart from using a safer non-DEET formulation, it offers SPF 15 to protect kids from UV rays while playing outdoors.

Above all, it’s less sticky and has a mild scent. This makes it ideal to be your kid’s new outdoor partner.

Even Iya Villania and Primo trust DirtBugSun!

Modern Parenting’s February 2023 Spotlight stars, Iya Villania-Arellano and her son Primo, always use DirtBugSun. Known for their love for nature and the outdoors, and doing activities like swimming, scooting, and biking, it’s important for Iya to let Primo explore his surroundings. “I want him to be able to enjoy the outdoors without me having to worry about all sorts of things that would normally hinder us.”

Iya is a firm believer in the importance of outdoor play in all of her children’s learning and development. “There’s so much to explore outside that you just can’t forge indoors. Also, I really want them to learn to get comfortable being uncomfortable outdoors. Because I want the joy of being outside and getting wild and creative to always outshine the heat and other discomforts.”

“DirtBugSun has really been our ultimate partner with such a power combo of protection from three major concerns of parents: the sun, mosquitoes, and germs! I love that one bottle is enough to protect from all three.”

Like Iya, modern moms should start switching and upgrading to DirtBugSun! DirtBugSun is available in leading supermarkets and online through their official Lazada and Shopee stores.
