ITCHING AND SCRATCHING? BANISH THE URGE THIS SUMMER WITH ECO ZAP-IT!




Mozzies and little biting insects... they're universally unpopular and guaranteed to put a dampener on things when youre outside, with their dive-bombing and blood-sucking antics. So whether youre back-packing through South America, honeymooning in Asia, out for a run or just barbecuing in your back garden - make sure youre armed with Zap-It!

Scratching a mosquito bite may bring short-lived relief but it also floods the bitten area with histamine causing swelling, incessant urges to scratch and a risk of damaging the skins surface, and therefore infection.




A safe, clinically tested way to deal with pesky mozzie and other insect bites is to use Zap-It! - a small but effective piezo (meaning to squeeze or press) device that generates a harmless and mild (no stronger than a gentle pinch) low electrical impulse created by crystals (this same technology is commonly used in clocks, lighters and guitar pickups) to deliver harmless little zaps which stops the itching and urge to scratch in minutes.

In a study carried out at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Dr Nigel Hill, the UKs foremost specialist on biting insects, confirmed the therapeutic benefits of Zap-It! as being twofold: firstly by reducing histamine flow and therefore the itch, and secondly by
stimulating the capillaries into flushing out toxins.

Zap-It! can be used as and when required by all the family, but not on babies under 2 years of age. Each Zap-It! will relieve up to 1,000 bites - enough for many years of bites or itches!


Zap-It! is available in different colors from selected health stores, pharmacies, garden centres, all Asda shops and Superdrug, and retails at £5.95. Zap-It! is also available online from Amazon or www.ecobrands.co.uk.

I was sent one to test out and see what I think.When it first arrived I did not want to test it first I thought it would hurt lol so I said to hubs that I had tried it and it was fine and made him try it :).

Once we had all tried it,it was really not bad at all even the kiddies did not mind it and the best part it actually works good on bites I had one that was really itching me and with one zap it stopped itching and saved me from a lot of pain if I would have been scratching it all the time.

If the kiddies have any bites now they always ask for the zap,I love that it is so small I can put it in my pocket,bag or even to my keyring(where it is now) and it can come everywhere with us.Who would of thought a tiny thing like that could relive pain and itching like that.I would recommend this product to you all.
