About The Product
Proven, the most effective way to get fast relief from the misery of mosquito bites.
Using Zap-It! is the simplest, most effective and harmless way of stopping the itch and reducing the swelling and skin discolouration that are well known to us all, especially those who suffer an allergic reaction to bites.
In clinical trials, well over 90% of people tested reported being 'itch free’ within 5 minutes of using Zap-It! on their bites !
Zap-It! is free of ammonia and other harmful chemicals, is completely non allergenic, small, clean, discreet, robust and yet very light to carry. It is ecologically sound as it has no battery and can be used over a long period to treat up to 1000 bites.
Not requiring a battery means Zap-It! has an unlimited shelf life. Use it on holiday, put it away until the next year, Zap-It! will work just as effectively.
Better still, keep one in the medicine cabinet, one with your travel luggage and one on your rucksack or sports bag ! you never know where or when the next bite is coming !!
How does Zap-It work ?
'Clicking ' Zap-It! several times around the area of the bite has the effect of localising the poison and inhibiting the histamine release which causes the itch and the urge to scratch. The toxicity of the mosquito bite becomes neutralised, with no harmful effect on the surrounding skin, thus stopping the customary inflammation and unsightly swelling.
Zap-It! is completely safe for the human body and an incredibly effective treatment for insect bites.
