Composition of Mosquito Repellents: How it is Important?
The composition of Mosquito Repellents: How it is Important? Mechanism of action is a term which signifies the manner in which the action of a drug produces a response by creating some physiological or biochemical processes within the body.
The active ingredient used in the manufacturing process of mosquito repellents plays the most important role. Many compounds and chemicals have been identified to repel insects, but DEET is the most widely used compound. The formulation is available for worldwide consumption in four types: mosquito coils, aerosols, vaporizing mats and liquid vaporizers. The mosquito repellents composed of chemicals such as DEET, dimethyl phthalate, etc. have shown some negative impacts on the overall health of children and adults when used in higher quantities. These chemicals have proven to pose respiratory problems, damage to the neurological system and skin ailments.
The use of coils with the composition of such chemicals exposes humans to bis-chloromethyl ether (BCME) which becomes an air particle and when consumed even in slight quantities, promotes the process of carcinogenesis that is the formation of cancer in lungs. Several aldehydes and formaldehyde particles are also released into the air during the burning of mosquito coils that are potent lung carcinogens.
On the other hand, some herbal repellents make use of eucalyptus extracts. But you must know that eucalyptus oil is very concentrated, and Australian physicians believe it to be a poison for health. The container of eucalyptus extract is marked as child-resistant and is sealed thoroughly. It has proven to cause inflammation, respiratory problems, and mind seizures when used in high quantities.
